What happens if my phone line is cut?

With most standard security systems alarm signals are transmitted to our monitoring station via the telephone line. If your telephone line becomes disconnected, your standard security system will be unable to transmit signals to our monitoring station.

To provide an additional level of protection and an alternate transmission method in the rare event telephone lines are cut or go down, you can install wireless back-up on most systems. With wireless back-up, a cellular transmission will be made to our monitoring station informing an attendant of the emergency situation.
