No analog home phone line? No Problem! In fact, we have two solutions much more secure and reliable than a standard phone line.
Telephone lines over the past several decades, had been widely used to link alarm systems to the central station for signal transmission and the criminals know it! Now, burglars routinely cut the telephone lines to homes and businesses, even whole neighborhoods, before breaking in. Plus, the telephone system itself is susceptible to problems caused by weather, accidents, equipment failures and natural disasters. Not to mention the recent changes in phone services, like (VOIP) Voice Over Internet Protocol, which are not reliable forms of communication for alarm systems or any data transmission, most of the time preventing alarm signals from going through to the central station. Phone networks were not originally designed with security in mind. Any of these problems could prevent your important alarm messages from reaching the central station, police, fire, and emergency response personnel.
Several companies also use internet monitoring to monitor their alarm systems. We at Alamo Alarm Company do not offer internet monitoring only, as we do not feel that it is a secure enough method of signal transmission for monitoring our customers. If the internet goes down, or during a power outage in which the router/modem is dead due to power loss, the burglar alarm, fire, and/or panic signals would not be able to report to the central monitoring station.
Both of our communication solutions use wireless transmission to send signals to our central monitoring station. One uses a cellular transmission and the other transmits over our very own mesh radio network.
The cellular communicator transmits signals on the cellular network to our central monitoring station. These signals are transmitted in about half the time of normal phone lines. The cellular communicator also adds the ability of subscribing to Total Connect 2.0, which allows remote access to control your alarm system using a smartphone, tablet, or computer anywhere that you have internet service.
Did you forget to turn on your alarm when you left? No problem, log in on your phone and arm your alarm system.
The AES IntelliNet Radio system transmits signals over our own private radio mesh network back to our central monitoring station. No extra bells and whistles, just an extremely fast, secure, and reliable form of alarm signal transmission. The AES Radio signal will reach our central monitoring station in about two seconds as compared to the average phone line which takes approximately 30-60 seconds to transmit alarm signals to the central station. Every second counts!
