Better Coverage, Technology & Reliability


AT&T and Verizon have always upgraded their cellular technnology, as part of their ongoing efforts to improve their networks and provide better service to their customers. This has proven necessary to keep up with the increasing demand for mobile data and to provide faster and more reliable service for the community. Everyone who uses the AT&T or Verizon network for their mobile phone or other wireless devices are affected by the changes.

This upgrade positively affects wireless security alarm systems in several ways.

It improves connectivity. The upgraded cellular towers provide faster and more reliable connectivity, which is critical for security alarm systems to function effectively. With improved connectivity, your security system can transmit data more quickly and with less chance of signal interruption or dropouts.

The upgraded towers have better coverage. Upgraded cellular towers can expand the coverage area for your security alarm system, especially in areas where coverage was previously poor or non-existent. This can improve the security of homes and businesses in those areas.

The upgrades come with enhanced security features. Upgraded cellular networks often come with improved security features that can benefit security alarm systems. For example, some upgraded networks may have stronger encryption or more secure authentication protocols, which can help prevent hacking or other security breaches.

One of the main reasons for these upgrades is increased reliability. With upgraded cellular towers, your security system is less likely to experience downtime or other issues that could compromise their security. This can give homeowners and business owners greater peace of mind knowing that their security systems are working reliably.

Overall, the upgrading of cellular towers by AT&T and Verizon have a positive impact on security alarm systems by improving connectivity, coverage, security, and reliability.

AT&T and Verizon upgraded their cellular towers to transmit 4G and 5G signals. Alarm systems with a 3G cellular radio will experience service interruptions.

The Verizon and AT&T tower updates required that the cellular radios in our SMARTSOLUTIONS panel, our UPLINK, BATConnect  and Telguard devices be upgraded as well. Security systems with a 3G cellular will experience serious communication failures. The vast amount of our customers have converted their radios already but there is still a substantial number of you that have not. If your alarm system has not been upgraded in the past year, to avoid connectivity issues, please call our office at 404-756-0736 ext. #128. We will advise you on the status of your security system and make sure your panel is up-to-date.

It is essential that you make sure to test your alarm system (regardless of the status of your cellular radio) to ensure that it is operating properly at least once a month.
