Security System Without a Phone Line?
One of the main reasons why many people don’t have security systems is because they think that security systems require phone lines. People may even think that phone lines should be more secure because they plug directly into the source, right? Wrong.
Today’s technology has advanced to the point where there are better options for home security systems that do not rely on phone lines! In fact, these options don’t just eliminate the need for telephone lines—they give us even more control over our home security and keep our homes safer.
Monitoring without a landline, your options
This is when your alarm is monitored over the internet through your broadband connection.
Cellular Network Monitoring
This is when your alarm is monitored over the mobile cellular data network service on the 2G or 3G cellular communication system’s. No need for a landline and with the unpredictable changes in the landline services occurring, this is the most reliable alarm communications, where cellphone coverage is acceptable, for the future.
Broadband Internet (IP) Alarm Monitoring
Have your alarm monitored by 10/7 Security over your INTERNET connection
No need for a landline, but you should add a UPS for your router for AC mains failures.
IP (Internet Protocol) Monitoring is when the alarm communicates with the Monitoring Station through an Internet Connection, without any need for a landline.
Safegard does recommend the installation of a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) to your modem/router. This will ensure that even in the event of a powercut, your internet stays ‘live’ for a period (typically up to 30 minutes) and your alarm remains in touch with our Monitoring Station.
Cellular Network Monitoring
Cellular alarm communications use the mobile data service on the 2G or 3G cellular communication system’s.
With so many changes occurring to the landline networks and with fibre being rolled out in many areas, the cellular network monitoring is now the most reliable communications medium for alarms, providing there is acceptable cellphone network coverage.
The Cellular alarm communicator is powered by your alarm so will continue to communicate with the monitoring station as long as the battery is powering the alarm.
10/7 Security provide the T4000 4G GPRS Security Communicator with inbuilt SIM card and there are no additional cellphone network charges.
Difference Between Wireless and Cellular Security?
Wireless home security means that the control panel and sensors around your home are linked via radio waves instead of physical wires in your home.
The term cellular refers to how the control panel communicates with your security company’s alarm monitoring center, also known as cellular monitoring. These cellular-based security systems use mobile cellular networks—instead of phone lines—to contact the monitoring center in an emergency.

What does IP Monitoring entail?
To set up for IP Monitoring all that needs to happen is a small device is installed into the alarm panel and a cable is run to the Router or Modem. A UPS is required for communication to happen for up to 30 minutes during power cuts.
Can it be added to existing alarms?
Most existing alarms can be set up for IP Monitoring. Some older models might not accept the additional circuitry.
