Cellular & Internet Monitoring
Many of our customers are eliminating their expensive POTS telephone lines and migrating to internet and or cellular monitoring. There is proposed legislation to eliminate POTS telephone lines as early as 2018. In addition, as more and more legs of the communication path convert to digital these lines are becoming increasingly unreliable.
The 2013 edition of NFPA 72 now prohibits new fire alarm insta
llations from being monitored over telephone lines only. If you would like to learn more about eliminating your phone lines, please give us a call.
