The Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), also known as Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS), has been a reliable backbone for security systems since the late 19th century. With the rise of digital and wireless communication technologies, the maintenance and operation of POTS have become increasingly costly and inefficient. Telecom companies are phasing out POTS lines, a process known as the POTS sunset. This shift will require many security systems to upgrade to cellular communication.

Why switch to cellular communication?

  1. Reliability. Cellular networks offer more reliable communication compared to aging POTS infrastructure. Cellular technology ensures your security system can send alerts and notifications without interruption, even during power outages.
  2. Speed. Cellular communication is generally faster, enabling quicker response times for emergency services. This can be critical in situations where every second counts.
  3. Planning for the future. Switching to cellular not only addresses the immediate need due to the POTS sunset but also prepares your security system for future advancements in communication technology.
