Connecting the Alarm Panel Telephone Cable

An alarm system that have been used with a monitoring service usually have a telephone cable going out. Look for it close to your alarm panel or at the phone line entry of your home. The plug at the end of the cable is usually connected to a small phone box called RJ31X or CA38A as shown above.

Find the cable plug, disconnect it from the phone box, and connect it to the Alarmster Alarm Port.

Combined Keyboard-Panel Systems

The Alarm Panel Telephone Cable usually run in the wall from the back of the Keyboard-Panel and down to the basement or to a nearby closet. Knowing that it should go to the phone line entry will help you find it.


Alarm Panels with nearby phone box

Look for the RJ31X or CA38A phone box close to the Alarm Panel. This is the most common installation since alarm panels are usually installed close to phone lines.


Alarm PanelS with phone box inside

Sometimes the RJ31X or CA38A is found inside the Alarm Panel as shown below. In such case, simply run the Alarm Panel Telephone Cable out through an opening on a side or on the back of the panel.

The Uninterruptible Power Supply acts as a power outlet that stays on even during power outages. It can be used to power BridgeSecure, your Modem and Router. It will also protect your equipment and keep your internet available during power outages (provided internet service is still on).

The WiFi Adapter is a very simple mean to replace the network cable between BridgeSecure and your Router. It is recommended if your Router is not in the same room as your Alarm Panel. It also provides added benefits of extending your network and eliminating Wi-Fi dead zones throughout your home.

Most alarm systems that are designed to communicate using a regular phone line will work with BridgeSecure. Alarm systems communicating exclusively through cellular network (GSM) are not compatible. The alarm system may require the intervention of a professional installer for reprogramming if it has never been connected to an alarm central.
