ATT 2G Network Shutdown

ATT 2G Network Shutdown

Just a quick reminder of what you may ask how it relates to Real Estate...


AT&T is shutting down their 2G cellular network on 12/31/16.   This network was largely still in use by what they call Machine2Machine devices.  This is impacting many home owners who have security systems that use 2G as their primary or backup communication path.  If your alarm provider (or monitoring service) has not contacted you may want to touch base and see how your system works.

If your home security system is over 5 years old you may want to revisit your options.  Many people take for granted that their system is functioning and protecting your home when in fact it is not functioning on all levels.   The technology is changing rapidly and many times for the same monitoring cost you can greatly expand your functionality.


Remember if your security system is only using landline to communicate with monitoring service, it is very easy to defeat.  Your house probably has what is called a network interface on the side of your house.  Removing one screw allows you to open the box and unplug your connection.   Once the phone line is disconnected your security system can no longer communicate with the monitoring service.  Most modern systems have at least two paths to the monitoring service.  Many use a landline and cellular but as many people eliminate landlines they use IP (your high speed internet connection) and cellular.   The use of your high speed internet allows them to integrate real time video and conversation.
