If you are wondering why the arrival of NBN in your area would affect your home alarm system you should read our previous blog on why NBN is About More Than the Internet. All caught up? Brilliant.
What is 1300 Alarms NBN Solution?
1300 Alarms has several NBN solutions for home alarms that don’t rely on the NBN network itself. Alarm systems have followed much the same progress as phone systems. Many older alarm panels ran from the home’s landline, whereas most of the new alarm panels operate from a sim card. This doesn’t necessarily mean that your old alarm is useless once NBN reaches your area. 1300 Alarms has researched and tested many solutions to ensure that people don’t have to go to the expense of getting a whole new system. Unless of course they want to upgrade, in which case we can definitely help as well. In fact, it’s the ideal time to upgrade to a home automation system like Alarm.com.
Upgrading to one of the dual sim communicators we offer means that you will not be disrupted when NBN reaches your area. It also means that you can add additional features to your current alarm system.
The Benefits of a Sim-Based NBN Alarm Solution.
Using a dual sim communicator from 1300 Alarms means that your alarm panel battery will be more effective in the event of a blackout or other power issues. 1300 Alarms also exclusively uses an ASIAL Grade A1 accredited monitoring centre, with Australian wide coverage. Which means that your alarm system is always being monitored by the best of the best.
One great benefit of upgrading to a dual sim communicator is the features you get with this. For example, you can get an app for your smart device that will allow you to arm and disarm your alarm system from wherever you are. You never have to worry about whether or not you set the alarm before you left the house.
The one thing that we know from being in the security industry for so long is that every time there is a power supply issue, there are a lot of alarm issues as a result. Monitored alarm systems register power failures as this could be a result of someone tampering with the alarm. When people don’t keep their alarm battery up-to-date it doesn’t have enough reserve power to keep going when it’s cut off from its main power supply.
