NBN Facts: Your alarm is vulnerable; here's why and how to handle it.
The NBN Network is coming and it's confusing a lot of people, here's our simple list to help clarify what it means for your site and security.
1. What is the NBN Network
Put very simply, the NBN Network is just different cabling that will provide your home and business with internet and telephone services. This means that your existing phone line(s) and internet service will be unusable as they "roll out" the new type of cable.
2. Why should I care?
Your alarm system is currently connected to your phone line which utilises the old cable. Once the new cable (NBN) is active, the old cable will be switched off within a year (approximately) and your alarm system will no communicate to the Monitoring Center.
3. Do I have to switch to the NBN?
Yes. Unfortunately you will not have a choice. The old cable is being disconnected so if you don't swap over to the NBN Network once it's available in your area, you will be left without any telephone or internet services.
4. What about my Alarm System?
Your alarm is more than likely still connected to the old cable, once you swap over, you will need to look at alternative alarm monitoring whether it be by a mobile device or IP/ internet connection.
