Comparison of Signalling Types
BT Redcare is an alarm signalling network which is considered to be one of the most secure and reliable forms of signalling currently available. Using an existing BT line, it continuously monitors an alarm system and will pass an alarm activation immediately to the ARC. It will also respond if the phone line is damaged or even deliberately cut.
In addition, BT Redcare helps to reduce the number of false alarms by automatically checking that a fault signal is not just a few seconds of electrical interference on the line, before raising the alarm. To maximise security, BT Redcare signals are sent down two separate transmission paths and are uniquely coded for each premises. BT RedCare GSM is also available which uses the mobile phone text network should the landline system fail.
Average Cost for Redcare GSM per Annum – £355.00
