MATTOON, IL – Consolidated Communications, a broadband and business communications provider, announced it is partnering with SimpliSafe, a home security company, to bring 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 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 24×7 professional monitoring protects against intrusion, fires, floods, freezing temperatures and medical emergencies. It uses a built-in 802.11n 2.4GHz Wi-Fi 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.
This comprehensive security is paired with advanced smart home controls. Customers can arm and disarm their alarm system remotely from any mobile device, including an Apple Watch, and SimpliSafe can be configured to deliver mobile text alerts and notifications.
