When we moved in, we discontinued the alarm monitoring as there was always someone home.
Circumstances have changed, and we are considering re-investing in alarm monitoring.
We had UFB installed last year, and I have been told that alarms need a copper phone line to dial out. Our setup is such that although our phones are over VOIP, all of our phone jacks still have dial tone and we can plug any normal old fashioned phone into any phone jack and make a call.
I believe the setup is such that our FritzBox and Chorus ONT back feed a dial tone to all phone jacks in the house.
Does anyone have any experience with alarm monitoring after UFB is installed, does it make a difference that our phone jacks/dial tone is via UFB, does the alarm just need a dial tone?
Any advice appreciated.
