Many alarm panels offer wifi as a way to connect the alarm to the internet so you can control and monitor the alarm via a smartphone app. Wifi is convenient but is not as secure or reliable as you think. Here's why, and if your panel is affected by this, you will not be able to access your alarm.....
INTERFERANCE : - Wi-fi signals are prone to interference, are short range and can drop in and out.
FREEZING : - Routers / wi-fi "freezes" and often needs a manual reset.
FIREWALL : - If your router has a built in firewall this can block the alarm from accessing the internet.
RELIANCE : - The wi-fi signal has to travel through a router which then connects to the phone line, to then connect to the exchange and then from there connect to the internet. If there is a problem with the router, phone line or exchange then broadband can be lost and the panel will go offline.
DISCONNECTIONS : - Broadband providers periodically reset the connection based on the quality of connection and this can be from a couple of times a day to once every few weeks and this process can take a few minutes, during which time the panel cannot communicate.
CUT LINE : - If the phone line is cut from outside the property the broadband line will go down.
ELECTRICITY LOSS : - If the electricity to property is lost, then the broadband router / wi-fi will switch off.
HACKING : - Wi-fi signals can be hacked or blocked, meaning your alarm cannot connect to the internet.
