I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the phrase “I don’t need a security system, I have a gun!”  While most of the time the comment is tongue-in-cheek, it typically comes from someone who’s at least half serious about this position.  It’s a sentiment that’s understandable on the surface:  “I fully intend on protecting my home and my family on my own, by any means necessary, and I don’t need your security system to do that.”  My response to this is always the same:  “OK, but who’s watching your home when you’re not there?  And did you know that guns are among the most popular targets for thieves?”  This usually falls on deaf ears, and while I understand that mentality, articles like the one below are examples of exactly what I’m talking about.

Will My Security System Work with VoIP (Internet Based Phone Lines)?

Feb 9, 2018 2:04:56 PM / by Olivia Staff

0 Comments

What is VoIP? Voice over Internet Protocol is a phone system that uses internet connection rather than broadband phone services.
