Cancelling Your Phone? Placing Your Phone on Seasonal Service? This Could Affect Your Alarm System
When you cancel your phone service or place it on seasonal service with your phone company, your alarm system could be affected. In the event of a burglary, a fire, or the occasion of critically low temperature inside your home, vital information communicated from your alarm system may not reach our monitoring center. Many alarm systems’ primary means of communication is your telephone line, which sends the information from your property to us. If the phone line cannot dial out, we will not receive the information. This leaves your property at risk.
To ensure that your alarm system communicates properly, we recommend adding our SeaNet Mesh Radio to your alarm system. Because SeaNet uses radio communication, it does not require a phone line to send your system’s alarm signals to our monitoring center. This allows you to cancel your traditional phone service without affecting your Seacoast system.
