Access Alarm Home Security Packages
Customers can choose from three different types of monitoring services. The phone line provides a traditional installation and connection where the monitoring system is notified through a traditional phone line dialing system. These packages are less expensive and provide a reliable connection. The weakness in this system is that intruders can cut the phone line to disable the system.
Customers can also choose cellular systems. The advantage of this monitoring method is that the installation is wireless and the central monitoring station is contacted remotely through cellular connections. The weakness in this system is if the lines are down or the reception is not good, it may take more seconds to reach the monitoring station.
IP communications is the third option for connecting with the central station. This uses local networks to communicate with the station and often eliminates the reception issues that cellular service sometimes experiences.
With the state of the art monitoring service customers can view video through their electronic devices. This enables customers to access any activity in their home day or night. This additional level of security provides a lot of peace of mind to customers.
Monthly monitoring fees are dependent on which services are utilized and what connection method is chosen.
