Fire Alarm Communication – Why Eliminate POTS Lines?

Eliminate POTS Lines…Why?

Signal Transmission – Newer technology provides faster, safer, and more reliable connectivity to send signals from your premises.


Prone to Damage – In the event of a storm or accident, phone lines are prone to damage and might not be replaced.


Phasing Out Lines – Old phone lines & networks are expensive for phone companies to fix/maintain & are being phased out.


Costs Increasing – Since the POTS landlines supply is low, costs are getting increasingly higher all the time.



Cellular Communicators provide more reliable communication from the fire panel to the Monitoring Station. Explore your options today.
