Auto Dialers were designed to allow hardwired alarm systems to dial private telephone numbers directly, since most of the original systems themselves were lacking this functionality. People who wanted their alarm system to call them directly would need to add an auto dialer.
Although auto dialers are still needed for some older security systems, modern systems like the GE Simon XT are designed to include built-in digital dialers. This improvement in technology means that an alarm system can notify you directly without the need for additional hardware.
At an even higher level of security, you can integrate a cellular communicator with your system to provide tamper free communication right to the central station. Since phone lines are vulnerable to tampering, we always recommend Cellular Communication to send your alarm signals. In addition to reliable communication, you can also get all the great features of our LiveWatch™ Interactive Services and stay connected to your home or business from anywhere.
