When home security systems first became mainstream with everyday individuals, landlines were often a hard requirement for alarm systems to work and send information back to the monitoring company.
If you are interested in a home alarm system but do not have a landline installed on your property due to the rise of smartphones and Wi-Fi use, there are a few ways to find a home security provider capable of meeting your needs.
If you do not have a landline in your home and don't intend to purchase one, seek a home alarm company that does not require a traditional landline to work correctly.
Review cameras and other devices offered by the home alarm companies you are interested in to better understand each provider’s capabilities and features before deciding on a service.
Decide if you want to pay a fee along with a monthly monitoring service charge for professional installation or if you are interested in a DIY installation. It is also important to compare the features of each service available near you and the overall pricing of individual plans.
Before investing in a home alarm, consider the following:
Does your setup include motion detection devices for doors and windows?
Is there a backup of data from your cameras and monitoring equipment?
Is there 24/7 assistance available from a professional security representative in case of a burglary or emergency?
Are you able to quickly install your security system over the phone with a service representative, or are you required to pay a large fee to complete your alarm’s installation?
Another way to install a home alarm system without worrying about landlines is to do so with the help of a professional security monitoring company. Selecting and purchasing your equipment while installing it with a security representative’s guidance helps save time and money on installation fees.
Additionally, choosing to install your home security system cuts down on overall monthly and annual fees from the service itself, making it an optimal choice for individuals and families on a strict household budget.
