How Signals Get to the Central Station Monitoring Command Center

Jade Alarm’s True Digital Radio Network is the most reliable and durable method of communication for your Security and Life-Safety needs. In the 1970’s the alarm ’dialing’ equipment with the ability to indicate in what area an intrusion or fire was occurring came into being and now is being replaced with other methods such as internet / VOIP monitoring, cellular or true digital radio. While we utilize the internet to remotely arm a system & change/delete the combinations, due to the speed and reliability of our True Digital Radio Network we prefer this method.

Automatic DialPhone lines not reliable/available & their costs are dramatically escalating. Can get multi-zones.
Cellular3rd party control of network. Have to replace each time new type of service (2g,3g,4g, and ??). Easily jammed and slow speed of signal transmission.
