Cellular is the safest and most reliable way for an alarm system to communicate. It’s safer because there is no phone line that can be cut: plus, you do not need a phone or internet connection to be protected.

The alarm system has its own standalone cellular device, and cellular communication for an alarm system only needs one bar. In fact, you don’t even need to have your own cell phone for the system to work.
