What does a 3G Sunset mean for my security?
Your alarm system was installed with a 3G compatible GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) communicator, which was the newest technology available at that time.
Although the wireless carriers have published specific dates for the termination of 3G, this does not guarantee 3G services will be fully available until the sunset. It is common practice for carriers to reduce coverage during these transition periods.
This will begin to render current technologies obsolete and create sweeping implications for the security industry, including directly affecting our customer’s security systems. It will be important to take action as soon as possible to avoid any disruption in service.
The cellular communicator on your security system will need to be replaced to operate on the new networks.
It is important to note that this change will NOT just impact Vector Security customers, but ALL alarm customers nationwide that utilize 3G networks that are shutting down.
