Q&A: Do I need a landline phone for an alarm system?
If I don’t have a landline phone, can I still have an alarm system?
For years, alarm systems relied on having a telephone line so that the signal could be transmitted from your system to the alarm monitoring system. With the popularity of cell phones, many homes are getting rid of their landlines or never even setting up service in the first place. The good news is that nowadays, you can have alarm monitoring without a telephone line. Security Services can provide alarm monitoring services via a DSL connection and wireless connection. Wireless equipment can also be installed to serve as a backup to a landline service. That way if your phone line is disabled, our monitoring station will still receive signals from your system.
