Obtaining an alarm in your home has turn out to be unavoidable nowadays as it is becoming entirely unsafe to reside in a house with no safety at all due to the ever increasing rate of thefts and crimes. I have an M1, 2 touchscreens, all external lighting controlled by the M1, roller door controlled by timers via the M1, app access for my mobile phone, automatic scheduling for arming at night time, PE beams for driveway notification and at the rear of the house, in case any individual jumps my fence, sensors on all points of entry as well as all rooms.
Some VoIP providers use voice compression to decrease the quantity of bandwidth required to transport the voice targeted traffic, which can result in distortion of the signal coming from the home’s alarm program, successfully disabling the remote monitoring of the technique.
If its a non common install eg. double storey house and you favor a completely wired program, then we recommend cabling up the job ahead of the walls go up. Seek the tips of your builder and let us know if its OK and we’ll run the cables pre wall stage and come back once the residence is comprehensive to hook the method up.
But the direct use of VoIP (POTS port on premises terminal) to transport analog alarms without having an alarm server device is problematic as the audio codecs utilised throughout the whole network transmission path can not assure a suitable level of reliability or high quality of service acceptable for the application.
Disadvantage: extremely sensitive to weather as rain, snow and fog for example would lead to the sensors to stop working, need to have sterile perimeter line due to the fact trees, bushes or anything that blocks the beam would cause false alarm or lack of detection.
