Keeping Safety First
Over the last few months, there has been an increase in the number of home break-ins and thefts. A large majority of these break-ins are happening during the day light hours. With this in mind, we are encouraging our customers to use their security system regularly.
Many break ins happen during daylight hours and some happen while you may still be in the home. Please help to protect your family and belongings by arming your security system while you are at home.
Even if you are leaving the home for a short time it’s wise to arm your security system on a regular basis in order to help deter intruders who may attempt a break in at your home.

Have you considered eliminating your home phone service?
You don’t need a land line to have a security system.
Security dealers now use cellular technology to communicate with the alarm monitoring center. Not having a barrier to increasing your safety. If you are one of the many people choosing to rely on your cell phone instead of installing a traditional phone line, you need to get wirelessly protected. In the past, the lack of a phone line would mean that you could not have a security system. But today, you can.
What does it mean?
Wirelessly protected means that your security system communicates with the alarm monitoring center using a robust and secure cellular network. A cellphone-like device connected to your home security panel transmits alarm signals wirelessly to the alarm monitoring center. Wireless protection is the most reliable form of security because the communication path can’t be cut by either savvy intruders or inclement weather.
Security systems may not work reliably using a VoIP connection or digital telephone service.
If your internet router is disabled or if there’s a power outage, the alarm signal cannot be transmitted. Additionally, the alarm signals are susceptible to distortion using VoIP. Telguard’s cellular modules are designed specifically for the security industry. They provide a reliable and “always on” connection. Choose wireless protection– it operates independently and delivers the highest level of protection.
