Landline, Broadband, and Wireless Communication

In today's world of lightning fast moving communication where every form of information is sent almost instantly to all parts of the world, you are going to want your home security system to be held at the same standard. Gone are the days of only being capable of using a landline, the majority of the population doesn’t even use theirs anymore.  We are closer to becoming a completely wireless world by each passing year and your home security solution is following the trend.

So you need to make a decision on your different options for your home security system. You can choose between a landline, cellular, broadband, or a combo of them. Let securitysolutionshouston.com let you know about them a bit, so you can make a more educated decision.

Landline

A landline is the old school way of how we communicate information. Its all done by wiring and before our smartphones possessed the power to control our entire lives, it was the quickest way.

When you use a landline system…

  • Each component is hardwired in your security system
    • Can cost a lot more for installation
    • More complicated to string wires throughout the house
  • You can have your systems devices wireless still with only your main monitoring depending on this connection
  • Easier for outsiders to tamper with your wiring system potentially

When you use a cellular system…

  • Cellular signals are used to communicated with your main controls
    • Quick setup—no wires
    • Easy to maintain
    • Allows you to roam freely while maintain your security wherever you go
    • Faster communication than a hardwired line
  • Outsiders can’t disrupt signal as easy as a hardline
  • If your power lines are ever damaged, you won’t have to worry about your landline being down, your system will still run.

When you use a broadband system…

  • Communication is done through your internet connection
  • Faster communication than a landline and cellular
  • Risk of potential disruption being connected to your internet
