PSTN | Intruder Alarm | Openreach

What does PSTN mean for existing Security Systems?

Over the last 12 months; BT Openreach have been making plans that will result in the UK’s Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) being switched off by 2025.

The project commenced in early 2020 and will gather momentum over the coming months and years.  

These changes will have a major impact on security systems, telecare systems and even things such as lift alarms – all things that people need to use in the event of an emergency.  

As an established and accredited security provider, we are well positioned to work with domestic and commercial customers to ensure systems are operating correctly and reliably throughout this transition period.

How do these changes impact your security system?

Your alarm signalling system currently uses a digital communicator which is connected directly to your phone line. This will not operate after the Openreach changes.  

How can we help?

ESS can install the latest technology in alarm signalling with increased security through the DigiAir Pro.

The DigiAir Pro is a completely wireless signalling device that uses mobile technology to deliver alarm signals. It comes with 2 roaming SIMs and using all available mobile technologies and is also future proofed for 5G.
