Do I need my phone line to have a monitored alarm system – or can I get rid of it?

As an established security company in Bakersfield, this is a question we hear a lot. That comes as no surprise; out of the more than 416,000 people residing in Bakersfield, roughly 128,007 households still have landline telephone service.* Many homeowners retain this landline service because they believe they need it for their home security system monitoring. Fortunately, that is not the case.
