Many security systems rely on the 3G network to communicate in an emergency. However, the major cellular carriers are rapidly replacing 3G with LTE, creating a serious security risk for many homes and businesses across the United States.
The video below provides a short explanation of how the 3G Sunset could adversely impact your security and how OS Technologies can make sure your business or home remains fully protected, even if you are currently with another security company.
The 3G Sunset and Your Security System
You may not be familiar with the phrase “3G Sunset”, but if you rely on the protection of a security system for your home or business, it’s critically important that you understand what it is and how it may affect your security.
In short, the cellular carriers (AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile) are replacing 3G with LTE. This means that if you have a security system that relies on 3G to communicate during an emergency such as a fire, burglary or robbery, you may not get a response from the authorities if your system has not been upgraded ahead of time.
How Do I Know if My Security System is Affected?
If you have a proactive, customer-focused security company, they should have already contacted you if your system requires an upgrade. But unfortunately, far too many security companies are “behind the curve” on this critical issue, leaving their customers in the dark and potentially vulnerable. If your security company has not provided guidance, we are more than happy to assist to determine if your system needs an upgrade.
