Consolidated Communications, SimpliSafe partner for wireless security service
Consolidated Communications announced it is partnering with SimpliSafe, a home security company, to bring award-winning security services to residential and small business customers across its service area. SimpliSafe offers professional-grade monitored home security with no long-term contracts and at radically fair prices. Their easy-to-use system is designed to blanket homes with layers of protection using a wide array of sensors, including panic buttons, glass-break sensors and outdoor sirens. SimpliSafe's 24x7 professional monitoring protects against intrusion, fires, floods, freezing temperatures and medical emergencies. It uses a built-in 802.11n 2.4GHz wifi connection and a cellular connection in parallel, ensuring redundant access to authorities and potentially benefiting customers in rural areas where mobile cellular service may be inconsistent. In the event of a power outage, a backup battery engages, so the system remains alert.
