Cellular & Internet Monitoring

Many of our customers are getting rid of 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 installations from being monitored over telephone lines only. If you would like to learn more about eliminating your phone lines, please give us a call.


Alarm Notifications – Phone, Text, or Email

In addition to phone calls notifying you of system conditions we can also notify people via text message or email for all alarm conditions (or only those that you specify). We can also provide daily, weekly, or monthly automated reports to show alarm activity.

Security System Smartphone App
We offer interactive features via a smartphone app or web interface. These allow for remote:

  • Arming/Disarming
  • Locking/Unlocking of Doors
  • Video Camera Viewing and Alerts
  • Temperature Controls
  • Lighting Controls
Video Monitoring & Audio Talk Down

Don’t have the staff to monitor or view your video? Or don’t have the resources to monitor your video 24x7. Allow us to help. We can perform remote guard tours at your specified timeframes and frequencies. Motion Detection or more sophisticated Video Analytics can be used to also allow us to review video under certain conditions. Our monitoring center can use a speaker installed in the area to announce to a potential intruder that the police has been dispatched and their activity is being recorded, hopefully prevent a crime from occurring.
