Advantages of cellular communication with home security systems

Learn why cellular communication in conjunction with home security systems continue to increase at an amazing rate.

Cellular communication in conjunction with home security systems continue to increase at an amazing rate. Why is that? Well, there are a few key factors for the shift from telephone landlines to cellular communication. The biggest influence for the shift is the increasing trend of customers dropping their landlines all together. Currently over thousands POTS (Plain Old Telephone Services) are being dropped monthly in the U.S. Customers are looking to reduce their monthly bills. More and more people are thinking to themselves “I have a landline, but I can’t remember that last time I used it and it is costing us $35 a month.” Most people use the landline only for fax communication and security systems. The first reason to drop your landline is that you will save money!

Here is an amazing statistic I found recently online from the Washington Post, “There are now more wireless devices being used in the United States than there are people, and Americans have doubled the amount of Internet data traffic they generate on smartphones.” Wow! This staggering information is just the tip of the iceberg. Check out this other statistic; according to the Consumer Electronics Association, “The typical home of 2.6 people has an average of 24 gadgets, including at least one smartphone — double the number from 15 years ago,” The trend for going mobile will continue to increase daily.

The second reason in going cellular is that it currently provides the best and most secure form of communication for security systems. This is because you cannot cut airwave cellular signals, but you can cut a phone line cable going into your home.

What other advantages make this move to cellular and cellular security systems more and more popular? Using the cellular network provides ways to interact with your security system like never before. Through customers can remotely arm/disarm, view sensor activity, add user codes on the fly, control thermostats, lock/unlock door locks and control lights for home automation.
