I've run a long cable from my alarm to my UFB router. I have a backup of GSM. It cost $200 per option through my alarm company (Safegard), but it was worth it to me. If people choose to have fiber they have to pay the extra cost to connect things to it.

GSM Monitoring is the way to go here - it is reliable, can operate during a powercut (due to it being powered off your alarms battery) and also a bit harder to knock offline. That way also it is separate from your local network. Personally, I find that shoving a home alarm on a home network is not a smart idea as people do mess with them and could inadvertently disable your alarm. In a business it is a bit better as networks could go absolute years at a time without being touched and the fibre / phonelines in most cases are not as accessible to anyone with a bit of know-how.


Will use a GSM jammer, then see who turns up first: the police or @JohnR in the Black Helicopter?





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
