Does your home security system use Wi-Fi? What happens if you cancel your telephone landline? Does your alarm system work through your cell phone? These are just some of the questions we are answering in our Tech Paper series.
- Does a Wireless Alarm System Work Through My Cell Phone?
No. However, in the same way your cell phone uses wireless celluar signals to send and receive phone calls and text messages, a wireless alarm system uses the same cellular technology to send signals to our monitoring center, where operators are available 24/7.
- I am Cancelling My Phone Line, Will This Affect My Alarm System?
As more and more consumers eliminate their traditional phone lines, the good news is you don’t need a phone line to have your alarm system monitored. Vector Security has wireless alarm systems that run on cellular technology.
- Does My Alarm System Use Wi-Fi?
Your alarm system may or may not be using Wi-Fi to communicate with our monitoring center. It really depends on what wireless communication technology it is using.
- What Options are Available for My System to Communicate with the Monitoring Center (Traditional Telephone Line, Cellular, Wi-Fi, Etc.)?
A monitored alarm system works by sending signals to our Monitoring Center, where operators are available 24/7 to dispatch help in the event of a true emergency. There are several options available for your alarm system to be able to communicate with our Monitoring Center.
