Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Guardian Systems security systems different from traditional security systems?
- Guardian Systems security systems are not phone-line dependent. The security system will work whether you have a cell phone, land line, or no phone line at all. Guardian Systems security systems send all alarms and other signals through cellular towers. The messages then weave through our secure server. As soon as your Guardian Systems system is powered up, it starts communicating with all of the local wireless towers in your area, similar to how your cell phone works.
- Since Guardian Systems security systems send signals wirelessly, your system is more secure than systems that use phone lines and hardwired sensors to report alarms. Even if an intruder cuts the phone line and power, the Guardian Systems security system can still report alarms. Many people with traditional security don’t realize how vulnerable the system is to line cuts.
- Guardian Systems firmly believes that a loud siren or horn may not stop a thief. We have integrated what we believe is the most unique and best technology into our security systems.
Can I install your systems myself?
Yes, because there is minimal wiring. Installation requires simply placing the security system and wireless devices with screws in the locations of your choice. The only wiring to do is for power. Sensors are pre-programmed for your system.
