PhantomLink Direct is the most simple and inexpensive solution for do-it-yourself alarm monitoring

Phantom Data Services announces the initial beta testing of PhantomLink Direct, a simple and inexpensive retrofit that enables nearly any existing security system to be monitored from the cloud. PhantomLink Direct is specifically designed to bring new life and functionality to old, unmonitored alarm systems. All it requires is an existing alarm system and a PC with internet access.

PhantomLink Direct directly links an existing security system to the internet. If an alarm signal is detected, PhantomLink servers immediately notify the user via email or text message. Users can also log into a free web-based "dashboard" to see timelines of alarms events, and real-time webcam video (optional).

"PhantomLink Direct is the most simple and inexpensive solution for do-it-yourself alarm monitoring," says Adam Peters, the company's founder. "It uses the existing alarm system and internet connection, so there are no extra costs other than a simple cable, which will be priced around 25 to 30 dollars -- less than most people pay for a single month of alarm monitoring services."

Details about this self-monitored security system solution can be found on the PhantomLink webpage. Do-it-yourself alarm installers and electronics hobbyists are encouraged to participate in this project to develop and expand the capabilities of this technology. provides do-it-yourself remote security monitoring solutions. was developed by and is operated by Phantom Data Services, LLC, a New Mexico limited liability company specializing in advanced website development.
