Wireless Security Sends Alerts Via Cell Phones, PCs

Look for wireless security systems that you can control using the latest communication technology – blackberries, PDAs, cell phones.

These systems report alarms and non-emergency events – such as system functions and power failure -- via phone, e-mail and text-message, depending on your preferences.

Some newer systems also let you monitor and control parts of your security system through a user-friendly Web portal. You can log onto a portal through your PDA or blackberry. Alarm signals are still routed from your monitoring service to police and fire departments.
