Phone companies are quickly moving away from the outdated copper wires underground that have been around for as long as any of us can rememeber and beyond. What should you pick when it comes to keeping your security communicating... Internet Network or Cellular? Internet coming into your home or business still uses a hardline that can be cut or disabled from outside the structure. Modems and routers also can lock up and must be rebooted fairly constant thus leaving your security wide open. Cellular can certainly have an issue on occasion but it is very few and far between. We recommend cellular transmission for the reliability and security even though it costs a little more. Most of the big national telcos and cable providers that are entering the security business are pushing the network path because they can maximize profits and bundle a customer into multiple plans and contracts. When picking between a giant telco or cable cable company vs. a local security provider just remember all those times you've had to call in for service and how hard it was to get someone out to fix the issue... now add in a siren screaming in the background and lets see how long it takes you to find a hammer to repair the issue? Local companies can respond very quickly and have for years.
