Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) and

   Your Monitored Security System 



Broadband internet (DSL) has been replacing dial up connections and low UFB brings with it much improved download and upload speeds for uninterrupted streaming.

Unfortunately UFB does create some problems. The most likely one to affect an existing monitored client, is the loss of the old copper phone line. This impacts on many burglar alarms, medical alarms and other devices designed communicate over copper phone lines.


Many clients are unaware that the installation of UFB will mean the loss of their copper phone line until they are advised prior to installation.

While there are alternatives to replace voice calling, such as VoIP which sends voice calls over the Internet, the majority of security systems already installed in New Zealand will no longer be able to be monitored by conventional means (PTSN) more on PTSN here


But there are now other ways to communicate 


Broadband Internet (IP) Alarm Monitoring

This is when you your alarm is monitored over the internet through your broadband connections. more on IP here >>>


GPRS or GSM (Cellular) Technologies
This is when your alarm is monitored over the mobile cellular data network or over the voice cellphone network. more on GPRS or GSM monitoring here


Most existing alarms can be set up for IP and GPRS Monitoring.

Some older models might not accept the additional circuitry.
