If you are struggling with poor cellular reception, then you might want to consider investing in a cellular communicator. These devices will enhance the cellular signal for devices communicating through the corresponding network. Cellular amplifiers will allow you to rest easy in knowing that your system is always communicating reliably. You won't have to worry about a poor signal anymore with a new cellular amplifier.
Cellular communication is known for being the most reliable communication path available for an alarm system. Cellular service almost never randomly goes out, and it is not affected by power outages. The same cannot be said for IP connectivity, which is prone to random outages and dependent upon electricity. However, it doesn't do any good if your cellular reception is poor. Fortunately, a cellular amplifier can help you easily boost signal strength.
Most cellular amplifiers consist of a base module and an antenna. The base module is kept inside the home, while the antenna is installed on the roof. Depending on the size of the home, a cellular amplifier may be able to provide an increase in signal strength for the entire building. The important thing is to make sure that your system's cellular communicator is within the range of the cellular amplifier.
A great aspect of a cellular amplifier is that it will work with any device that communicates across the corresponding cellular network. For example, let's say you get a Verizon LTE Cellular Amplifier to boost the signal of your Verizon LTE Communicator. The amplifier will also work to boost the signal of your Verizon Smartphone, as well as anyone else with a Verizon Phone who comes inside your home. There are also some amplifiers that can communicate across multiple network (e.g. both AT&T LTE and Verizon LTE).
Cellular amplifiers are particularly useful for users in rural areas who might not always get the strongest cellular signals. When you sign up for Alarm Grid Cellular Monitoring, our technicians will check the strength of your cellular signals and make sure you are getting a strong enough connection. If we find that your connection is weak, then we may recommend a cellular amplifier.
In addition to cellular amplifiers, Alarm Grid also offers cellular antennas. These devices accomplish the same goal of boosting cellular signals. However, a cellular antenna will only work with one device at a time. It is usually connected directly with a system's communicator. A cellular amplifier will boost the cellular signal for any device that communicates across the corresponding cellular network, as long as it is within range.
