Home Security that Works for Your Lifestyle
Traditional home security systems rely on analog phone lines to monitor sensors and alarms. However, if you're one of the many homeowners who only use wireless phone service, then wireless alarm monitoring with Ackerman Security is a great option. In fact, as of 2020, nearly half of all U.S. households do not have landline phone service.
At Ackerman Security, we are proud to offer all types of alarm monitoring to protect your Atlanta area home against intrusion, fire, and other risks without the need for landlines. This means that not only can we help provide you with peace of mind, but it’s also never been easier to protect your home with high-quality home security and automation equipment. See how Ackerman Security uses the latest in technology to provide you with the tools you need to keep your home safe.
Alarm Monitoring Options from Ackerman Security
If you need home security in the Atlanta area, Ackerman Security is committed to providing a solution. Technology provides a new level of flexibility that delivers monitoring of doors, windows, cameras, smoke detectors, as well as home automation. We believe everyone deserves peace of mind and protection. This is why we offer a range of alarm monitoring options including:
- Landline Monitoring: Conventional home security uses this type of monitoring. Your phone line communicates with the monitoring station. When an alarm is triggered, the system sends a signal over the landline to the monitoring center. These systems can require more extensive installation costs and wiring than other options. While we often don’t install this kind of monitoring in homes, we can work with current systems that utilize this technology.
- IP Monitoring: IP monitoring or broadband monitoring uses your internet connection to communicate with the monitoring center. This type of monitoring is fast and reliable, but it can be vulnerable to internet outages. Power outages can also affect the reliability of IP monitoring.
- Wireless Monitoring: With cellular monitoring, your security system communicates with the monitoring center through a cellular network. This type of monitoring is more reliable than landline monitoring because it is not vulnerable to phone line cuts or outages.
Advantages of Wireless Monitoring
Your home security is the top priority of Ackerman Security. We understand that every home and family has unique needs. Some homeowners need a solution where traditional phone and internet services are not available. Other homeowners need a reliable solution that doesn’t require extensive installation. Still more families want security that is affordable and dependable. Whatever you need, Ackerman Security has a solution. Here’s some of the unique reasons wireless monitoring may be the right option for you:
Protect Your Home Even If WiFi Fails
One of the main benefits of both IP and wireless alarm monitoring is the increased visibility and control you have over your security system. With IP monitoring, you can control cameras, door locks, and even thermostats from your smartphone or tablet, no matter where you are. However, if your home's WiFi signal fails, IP monitoring will be lost.
Wireless alarm monitoring, on the other hand, transmits signals between sensors, detectors, and your central monitoring station without relying on a home WiFi network. This means that even if your WiFi signal fails, your wireless alarm system will still function properly. In the event of a break-in, fire, or other emergency, wireless alarm monitoring uses cellular connections to quickly alert and respond to potential threats. As a result, wireless alarm systems can deter burglars and help keep your home safe and secure.
Secure Your Home Without Wires
Wireless alarm monitoring is extremely flexible. Wireless alarm monitoring does not require hardwired sensors on your doors, windows, detectors, and cameras. Wireless components can be installed in nearly any location regardless of the availability of power outlets or phone lines. Without wires, wireless alarm systems are less likely to be affected by disruptions and false alarms.
Affordable Home Security
Wireless alarm monitoring may be more affordable than other options. Installing is simpler and less invasive. Ackerman Security can quickly install a system to provide immediate security. New components can be added to your system over time as needed like home automation and optional equipment like smart door locks, smart doorbells and more.
