All 2G Towers Will Be Down by December 31, 2016

2G-sunset

In August 2012, AT&T announced that the shutdown of its second-generation (2G) wireless network will be complete by the end of 2016 and that on January 1, 2017, the 2G wireless network will cease to exist.

Why is AT&T shutting down the 2G network? Simply put, because data use on wireless networks is increasing as more and more people adopt smartphones. AT&T realizes that shutting down the old network and using that space for 3G and 4G networks will drastically increase data capacity and speed on the newer networks.

So how does this affect your alarm system? All wireless alarm systems communicate via cellular networks. Many wireless alarm systems were installed with a 2G compatible GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) device that can only communicate via the 2G wireless network. Therefore, when the network ceases to exist on January 1, 2017, these alarm systems will no longer be able to communicate alarm signals.

Protection Concepts continues to take a proactive approach to ensure all our affected customers are updated, but time is running out. Most customers have converted to 4G and will not experience any alarm communication issues. If you have not yet updated your system, please contact us immediately to discuss the next step in making sure your alarm system will be protected.

Protection Concepts is 100% committed to keeping you safe by keeping you informed. Contact Protection Concepts online or by calling 770 612-9073. Your protection is too important to wait.

Benefits of Wireless Home Security for Your Atlanta HomeBenefits of Wireless Home Security for Your Atlanta Home…When people ask me about the benefits of a wireless security system for their Atlanta homes, I usually reflect with them about the changes smart phones have brought to our daily lives.

We can now buy on line anywhere our smart phone operates. Home computer no longer rules our world. We can share pictures and texts with our friends on social media sites. When we want directions or a good place to eat, we use our smart phones. We have become a mobile society.  For some their smart phones are never more than 3 feet away, even when they sleep.

The technology that brought us the smart phones is the same technology behind the wireless home security systems. Using the wireless home security system you can get complete home security protection 24/7. You can install a variety of options like motion detectors, water and fire sensors, video cameras as well as windows and door sensors. With today’s wireless technology you can control your home’s lights, heat and cold, raise window blinds along with remote door locking.

At the heart of these options, is that control you have wherever you go. With all of these home security options, you control them from your smart phone or remote computer. You are always in charge.  You can be two places at once!

When you consider the hard wire home security alternative, the choice favors wireless. Hard wired systems involve messy installations with holes in your wall; they involve phone lines that can be cut by the bad guys to gain entrance to your home; they involve higher costs for hard wired home installations; and hard wired systems do not give you the ability to take your system with you if you should move.

Wireless home security systems have revolutionized the home security business just as the smart phones have revolutionized the way we live. Give us a call and let us explain how a wireless system can provide the home security you want for your family.
