Do you have to have a landline or Internet connection to have a security system monitored?

Cellular Monitoring For Your Alarm System

To have your home security system monitored 24-7 it used to be mandatory that you had a landline telephone connection. That phone line was the only way the company could contact you in case of an emergency. Times have changed though, and cellular phones are all the rage now, a trend that has carried over to home security monitoring too.

With a GE home security system from Protect America, you can get a command station with a built-in GSM cellular device. This is the latest in wireless home security monitoring. It provides a dedicated wireless connection between you and the central monitoring facility.

With this service there is no need to have a landline telephone or broadband Internet connection in your house to have your system monitored. All you have to do on your end is plug the command station into a power outlet and you are ready to roll.

This service does require an area with sufficient cellular phone coverage, so some locations with weak signal reception may not be able to support this package. Check with a representative to see if this monitoring service will work in your area.
