Home alarm monitoring is what actually notifies the police, EMS, or fire department if your alarm sends a signal. Having a home security system that is actually monitored is the most important part about having an alarm system.

Your home security system can be monitored 3 different ways. It can be monitored the original way, through your home phone which is called “landline monitoring”. You can also have your system monitored through your internet service called “broadband monitoring”. The last most up to date and modern monitoring is called, “cellular monitoring”.

Landline Monitoring 

When choosing a landline connection, your control panel uses your standard landline telephone connection to communicate with our monitoring facility. This is the standard connection for most security systems. Anytime the security system is triggered, the command station sends a signal through the landline phone to our monitoring facility and notifies us about a problem in your home. Depending on the nature of the problem, our monitoring facility will respond to your alarm and dispatch the emergency authorities to your home if necessary.

Interactive Broadband Monitoring

With HomePulse Broadband Monitoring, anytime the alarm is triggered, your security system sends the signal through your broadband internet connection. HomePulse Broadband Monitoring Service provides your security system with a much faster connection to the monitoring facility and is capable of notifying us of a problem at least four times faster than a landline connection. The presence of a broadband Internet connection and an available port from a router or modem is necessary.

The Lightning Fast Benefit to the Broadband Solution

How long does it take an home security system to signal a monitoring station of an alarm? With Protect America’s Broadband monitoring, its within 2 seconds. When the perimeter of any protected zone is breached, using your high-speed internet connection, two seconds is all it takes for the security system to send a signal to the monitoring facility.

Cellular Monitoring

With our Cellular Monitoring Solution, you receive true flexibility for your home security monitoring service. There is no need for any type of landline home phone or internet connection. And since it is a cellular connection, the alarm system doesn’t require any extra wires to work. Simply plug the command station into a power outlet and everything else is completely wireless. This service is not available in all areas and requires adequate cellular phone coverage in your area.

  • All communication is via cellular towers, which means no extra wires to the alarm system.

With Interactive Cellular Monitoring, your home security system works just like a cell phone. If the alarm goes off, authorities are notified 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. These days, many people are giving up their home phone in place of a cell phone. But with most alarm systems, giving up your phone means giving up your protection – as they usually 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 will work just like a cell phone – wirelessly contacting our monitoring station during any sign of trouble.
