The home security landscape is changing rapidly in 2018. Cellular home security monitoring has taken off. These systems operate on their own cellular channel. You don’t need a landline or cell phone to use them. In fact, cellular home security monitoring is much safer than traditional landline monitoring. In traditional landline monitoring burglars can cut your phone lines and disable the system – not so with cellular home security monitoring. It looks very much like 2018 may be the beginning of the end for the old landline home security technology.

No Cut Phone Lines
With Cellular Monitoring, your home security system works just like a cell phone. Authorities are notified of an alarm without the need of a landline. This eliminates the opportunity for thieves to bypass your protection by simply cutting the wires that lead to your home.
No Phone Line? No Problem.
Many modern homeowners prefer to have a cell phone and have given up their landline altogether. Many alarm systems, however, require a phone line to dial out to their monitoring station. We say – ditch the phone line and switch to cellular. Cellular monitoring means your alarm system communicates wirelessly and easily contacts our monitoring station during any sign of trouble.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is Cellular Monitoring different from typical security monitoring?
Cellular technology allows your security system to communicate with the monitoring station over the same platform that cell phones use. This means that a criminal cannot bypass your system by cutting the phone line.
How do I set up my cellular monitored security system?

What happens when my alarm is triggered?
Once your system senses an alarm, a signal is sent to a monitoring station. A representative will then attempt to reach you and then an emergency contact. If no contact can be made, the authorities will be notified.
How often should I test my system?
We recommend that you test your security system once a month to ensure a proper connection. Visit the MyProtectAmerica.com for a complete testing walk through.
