Re: I still keep a landline

I ditched the phone line-- it was cheaper for me to have the alarm company install a radio. They now are notified of an alarm wirelessly. The best part is cutting the phone and cable lines and turning off the power doesn't mean jack---- the alarm will nail them anyway.

I still have a VOIP line and a Cell. It's enough.

Really?? You really think someone's going to cut your phone, cable, and power lines to rob your house? Sheesh, people really DO need to turn off the TV. My alarm system consists of my dog and a few firearms. I guess I'm just not as important as you...

Apparently you don't understand how criminals have attempted to break into homes. That's why line monitoring is included in alarm panels.. because, you know, people cut phone and cable lines.

Your firearms do you no good when you are not home and your dog is easily distracted with a couple of hot dogs.

Having an alarm system does little or no good when the police won't respond because they are too busy responding to shootings ,robberies, muggings, rapes and more generalized "revenue enhancement" duties. It's better than nothing but an alarm system is as good as the response time of the police and the alarm company and in bankrupt states like California its getting pretty dismal.

I'm in SoCal - typical alarm response at my home by the Sheriff's department is 5 to 10 minutes - a house guest set it off once and didn't have the password when the monitoring center called and I had to rush home so the deputy would "unhook" my guest. The other time I purposely set off the panic alarm due to an unexpected visit from my ex - we are not on friendly terms.
