Updating your security system in 2015

By Karma O'Donal | Jan 14, 2015

With the New Year here, it’s time to review your home or business security system to ensure that you are using the most up-to-date technology. Protecting your home and business should be your top priority this year.

How will you know if your security system is out-of-date?

If your system uses Plain Old Telephone Systems (POTS) devices, than you require a landline-based network. The original voice-grade telephone service is based on analog signal transmission that was common before the advent of advanced forms of telephony such as Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN), cellular telephone systems, and voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). These networks are being phased out for the newer, faster and more reliable 3G and 4G LTE networks.

Chances are if you were not using a landline-based security system when it was installed, your system is already using a digital network. However, if you have recently gotten rid of your landline phone, you’ll want to contact your security provider to make sure that your system is working properly.

If you are a SeaNet customer, this is not the case. With SeaNet you will not have to worry about the sunset of POTS technologies. SeaNet Systems provide the most reliable link between your security system and Seacoast Security’s local monitoring center. Since it is radio-based, relying on a multi-path mesh structure, the signal gets through to our monitoring center when phone lines are out of order.

Seacoast Security will help you transition your security system from a POTS system into a trusted SeaNet system, providing technology that is infinitely scalable, completely reliable, and cost effective.
