I've called the Digital Life department and received various responses to my question below. I do not have video cameras, just basic equipment (keybad, smoke alarms, window sensors, glass break sensors, motion detector).
1. Does Digital Life equipment REQUIRE an internet connection to function?
2. If not, is there a delay at all in alerting appropriate parties (DL/Authorities etc) in the event one of the devices goes off?
3. How does the service work without internet service?
@Lalaland Hello. I'm sorry you received various responses. Let me see if i can clear this up for ya.
All security systems legally require a back up to be in place. Digital Life runs off of 3G with internet as the back up. So internet is required for the system. Other companies use hard phone lines as their back up, a lot of people have moved away from having a phone line at home so internet is the backup for most.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
