Honeywell L5100 Alarm Monitoring Options
The first option consumers will have for monitoring of a Honeywell L5100 wireless system is via phone/ VOIP alarm monitoring services. Security systems for over 30 years have been connected to central stations using phone lines. Even though phone line systems carry a lower monthly monitoring rate they don't provide end users with the most reliable mode of communications as phone lines can be cut by a possible intruder. If this was to occur the alarm signals will not reach the central station. Lastly, while using a VOIP or regular landline you will not be able to remotely control your system using your smart devices. In order to utilize phone line/ VoIP communications, you must have your installer code to access control panel programming menu and have an active dial tone line running into the panel.
