Internet Home Alarm Monitoring


Visitors: 1,690

There is hope for consumers in your position. Internet technology and broadband connections are changing the world and the alarm industry is changing with it. You can now have a dedicated, completely monitored alarm system that does not use a phone line. This technology allows your system to be monitored directly through your broad band connection, using modified VoIP technology.

What this means for you is that you can get a monitored alarm and not have to pay for a phone line. If you are one of the millions of consumers contemplating doing away with your phone line, but don't want to because of your security system, this technology offers you the means to ditch that extra bill and still have the vital home protection that you want and need.

These systems operate through a modified router that interfaces directly with your Internet connection. These can work with wired or wireless Internet, too, so don't worry if you are strictly wireless. An additional benefit for this type of connection is the fact that most monitoring companies using this technology routinely query your connection to make sure that it is active. An inactive response will trigger an event (alarm situation), though no one but you will be notified. This allows you to know that your Internet connection is not operating properly.

For those without wired broadband connections (those using satellite Internet), there are promising developments in this area as well. Once fully complete, these systems will work exactly as the one described above, but will work through your satellite provider, rather than through a traditional ISP. The future of home security is very bright, indeed.

With the number of current monitoring options, new technologies coming to the market and other configuration options, there has never been a better time to take advantage of a home alarm system . With a little research, you can find one that easily meets your requirements, whether you have a land line telephone system or not.

Bruce Kelly tip - Although some providers carry home security alarms that can be monitored over VOIP, it is recommended that you consult and industry professional for the solution that fits your home the best. Traditional home security systems offer a proven track record of quality performance.
