What is different about DIGITAL HOME SECURITY?

Digital Security differs from Traditional Home Security in the way it communicates with the Central Monitoring Facility.

Traditional security systems communicate over a phone line. This provides one-way communications for emergency calls out of the home. If a phone line is cut, the system is no longer in contact with the monitoring facility. This explains the need for the costly cellular back-up plans, offered by most home security companies.

Digital Home Security takes advantage of a Smart Neighborhood's fiber optic community network. A fiber communications path allows for a proactive security system. Two-way communications over fiber allow the Central Monitoring Facility to continuously poll your individual system to ensure connectivity. A loss in communications will immediately roll the system over to a phone line back-up and signal an alarm situation.

OpenBand's Digital Home Security System also supports advanced features including keyless entry, programmable access control and paging.
