Many families hardly use their house phones anymore. They want to drop their landlines, but they also want home security systems. Is it possible to get home security without landline service? With Shiver, the answer is yes!
Shiver is continually upgrading its products to the latest state of the art equipment for intrusion, video surveillance, access control and fire protection services. We believe that cellular, wireless home security is the way to go. But what does that mean exactly? And how is it different from other options? Let us break it down for you.
Wired Home Security Systems vs. Wireless Home Security To install traditional, wired home security systems, home security companies have to run wires throughout a customer’s home. Oftentimes, it means holes in drywall. Sometimes, in older homes, it was impossible to set up the system in a preferred, optimized way. There was a lot of working around thick plaster walls and outdated electric. Now, wireless security system technology allows us to set up a system in any home, with almost no barriers! Adding home security systems to existing homes, especially old ones, is easier and more effective than ever before.
Landline Alarm Monitoring vs. Cellular Alarm Monitoring Traditional home security systems use a landline to connect to the monitoring station. That means you have to have a working landline to have alarm monitoring. With cellular technology, that’s no longer the case. Cellular alarm monitoring uses a cellular communicator. It works a lot like a cell phone, but only calls one number, and that’s the alarm monitoring station.
The Benefits of Cellular, Wireless Home Security Not all alarm companies have moved to cellular alarm monitoring technology, but Shiver has. That’s because our goal is to provide the most intelligent, effective, home security solutions for our customers. It’s simply the best, and we wouldn’t install any less in your home. Here’s why we love cellular, wireless home security:
- Installation is much simpler, more effective, and doesn’t require holes in walls or updating electric.
- Wireless home security Dayton doesn’t rely on your home’s electric power. That means that if the power goes out, a wireless system will still be communicating with the alarm monitoring station.
- Cellular alarm monitoring doesn’t depend on a phone line. That means you don’t need to continue your phone service to get alarm monitoring.
- Cellular alarm monitoring is safer because an intruder cannot cut off your communication with the monitoring station. With a traditional landline, an intruder can cut your phone line – and your monitoring! Not so with cellular alarm monitoring, which is totally independent of your phone and internet.
