Fibre will stop your dialler - How to fix it.
Ultra Fast Broadband will replace existing copper phone lines with state-of-the-art fibre-optic cable. That's great for your internet experience, but bad news for you alarm dialler.
When you are using fibre, your alarm will need an upgrade. It simply will not work through the fibre-optic network.
Fortunately, we have solutions!
The simplest option is to purchase our fast-fit IP communicator.
This great device is fitted in minutes and removes all traditional 'phone outages' that we have all experienced in the past. Plus, it is completly seperate from the old copper lines and communicates directly to our monitiring station. It could not be easier

Q. Why does the alarm not communicate over fibre?
A. Alarm dialler technology has not changed for decades and the sensitive connection to Control room receivers is not compatible with the new fibre equipment.
Q. Is the new IP equipment secure?
A Yes, The signals are sent via a private server network and have a secondary back up server too. The device is powered from your alarm which, of course, has a battery back-up for power outages.
Q. There is obviously a charge, but how can I keep costs down?
A. There is a cost to all security firms to purchase the IP Units and also a monthly service charge through the internet connection. Our price for fitting the unit is $275 and the monthly (additional) monitoring charge is $5.00 - Existing customers may be entitled to an early adopter discount rate.
Q. Can you plug into my home router and monitor that way?
A. There are devices specifically for that method, but since the fibre equipment and router will fail during a power outage, it is not really a good choice. Also if you want to re-arrange your room or plug the router in another socket, you will need more re-wiring to the alarm. so, definitely a bad choice.
