If a Burglar Cuts My Phone Line, Will My Home Security System Work?

We welcome audience participation in our blog! Today’s question comes from Gerry in Lake Mary, FL.

If a Burglar Cuts My Phone Line, Will My Home Security System Work?

Thanks for the question, Gerry. We’ve been doing our best to educate area residents about the vulnerability of home security systems that rely on a phone line to communicate. Many people with these systems are unaware that burglars can disable the communication between their alarm system and the monitoring center by cutting their phone line. Unfortunately, criminals are well aware of that fact, and they’re taking full advantage.

At J&J Security, we recommend SURELINK cellular alarm communicators to all of our customers. With a SURELINK cellular communicator from J&J Security, your home alarm system or business security system will communicate wirelessly with our central station even if your phone line is cut or otherwise disabled.

I always use my cellphone. Do I even need a phone line?

Excellent question! Many of our customers have cancelled their home phone service. With a wireless communicator, you don’t need a phone line.

I’m impressed!

Of course you are. Heck, I’m impressed. But wait! There’s more!

If you have a smartphone like an iPhone, Android or Blackberry, J&J Security can install a virtual keypad on your mobile device. You’ll have complete control of your alarm system and get email or text message alerts when the system is armed, disarmed, or activated.

That’s super neat! I want this for my home and business!

Glad to hear it. Just give us a call at 877-532-SAFE (7233) or fill out the form on our home page!
