BT Openreach Phone Line Changes

BT Openreach has already started its endeavor of replacing the UK’s Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) in 2020 and will bring it to completion by 2025. This process is expected to gain traction over time, with all areas being impacted within a five-year span.

Security alarm systems will be significantly transformed by these changes.

How do these changes impact your security system?

If your existing alarm signalling device currently uses a PSTN (phone line) to transmit alarm activations these will not operate after the Openreach changes have been completed in your area.

You should also be aware that even some dual path signalling device could be using the PSTN line to transmit alarm activations for one of the two paths so although these will continue to work over the non PSTN path the device will become a single path device and therefore might not meet your insurance requirements.

What are the available options?

  • Upgrade your alarm Panel to one with an App that provides push notifications direct to your mobile phone(s). No phone line required as it utilises your broadband and no central station requirement.

 

  • Upgrade your existing signalling device to one that requires no PSTN phone line.

 

  • For single path transmission to replace Speech Diallers, Text messaging diallers or Digital Communicators we recommend Digi Air Pro that utilises a Radio or LAN path to signal an alarm to the central station. The Radio variant uses a 4G WorldSIM to send its signal and is also supplied with a network diverse standby SIM to safeguard your system, should the primary SIM lose its connection.

 

  • To upgrade to Dual Com GradeShift Pro, which utilizes both Radio and LAN paths for its dual path alarm signalling capability, we recommend replacing your current Dual Path Signalling Device with a model that employs mobile technology for one of the pathways. With this device, you’ll be able to make use of two radio signals or utilize just one signal from either a Radio or LAN source–ensuring maximum security in all scenarios. GradeShift Pro Radio/Radio takes advantage of two separate 4G WorldSIMs, each boasting a distinct radio module: one as the main and one as an auxiliary pathway. Additionally, an extra standby SIM acts as reinforcement to the principal SIM on the primary route. Every SIM works independently from another for unrivaled durability.

 

Don’t wait for Openreach to switch off the PSTN lines in your area leaving you and your property unprotected upgrade your alarm signally now and stay connected.
