Security and Alarms
Cellular Alarm Monitoring Systems
We live in a highly digital age, one in which families are rapidly abandoning their landline telephones in favor of cellular phones. In a previous era, not owning a land line phone meant that you could not take advantage of alarm monitoring services; fortunately, that’s no longer the case today.
That’s because global system for mobile communications (GSM) technology provides a cellular backup that serves as an alternative means of communication to alarm monitoring services; for First Response customers, that means a wireless connection to our iWATCH central station, a UL listed facility where live security agents are standing by to give the help you need and communicate with you until that help arrives.
Of course, GSM alarm monitoring isn’t just for those who are completely wireless with their phone system. In fact, GSM can be a lifeline in the event that a telephone land line is cut by an intruder, or the phone connection goes out during a weather emergency. If your home still uses a landline phone – or like most businesses, you rely on a traditional telephone network – your GSM system can be a cellular backup that ensures uninterrupted communication with our central station in the event of an emergency.
If you’re eager to go wireless with your security system, First Response is here to make it happen. Contact us today to request a free security analysis of your home or business.
