Unlike other alarm companies, uControl notifies me if one of the connections goes down and immediately switches to another connection to keep the security system working.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
uControl, Inc. (http://www.ucontrol.com), the premier home security service communicating through broadband, cellular and phone lines, today expanded its next-generation home and small business security service to the Dallas and San Antonio areas. The Austin-based company is the first to offer an enhanced service that connects to existing, installed alarm systems that communicates over three redundant connections - broadband, cellular and phone lines. In addition to delivering always-on connectivity and real-time security, uControl enables users to control and monitor their alarm system from the Web or from their cell phones - anywhere, anytime.
"uControl provides back-up connections so my alarm system is always monitored," said Harley Jebens, a Dallas resident who switched to uControl after burglars broke into his home and cut his telephone line to disable his security system. "Unlike other alarm companies, uControl notifies me if one of the connections goes down and immediately switches to another connection to keep the security system working."
uControl is currently expanding its sales teams in both the Dallas and San Antonio areas. These local markets will have the opportunity to purchase directly from sales representatives in their region. However, all customers throughout the United States can purchase uControl through https://order.ucontrol.com/.
Almost one out of four U.S. homes, or 26 million homes, has a security system, according to Parks Associates. Of these homes, 80 percent have broadband and nearly 15 percent use only VoIP or cellular phones instead of traditional phone lines. uControl's presence in the Dallas and San Antonio areas will allow customers to have premier home security options through local access to uControl sales offices and representatives.
"As the frequency of home security breaches continues to increase, it is becoming even more crucial for homeowners to make safety a priority," said Jim Johnson, founder and chief executive officer of uControl. "Our mission is to give customers a better security system that is compatible with broadband, VoIP and cell-phone-only homes - at a reasonable price."
