Compatibility Chart My Virtual Monitoring allows you to have full control over what happens when your home security system is activated. You can have signals sent to you via email, text or PUSH if using our iPhone or Android app and also via a automated phone call if you so wish.

My Virtual Monitoring does not require a telephone line or a VoIP account.
My Virtual Monitoring and the VM101 Broadband Alarm Transmitter (BAT) was specifically designed for internet alarm connectivity and monitoring with extreme thought put into ease of use. Being that it bridges the alarm control to our cutting edge automation systems it makes the work of the customer a cinch. Hosting the user/interface outside of the local network makes the overall product less expensive. The brains are in a data center, less cost / alarm panel power goes into the VM101 further lowering the up front capital investment.
Having the control bridged to the data center also allows for a plethora of options for signal routing, we have no ceiling on capacity. Access to a lot of strong network services for delivery of those cool notifications.
My Virtual Monitoring now has options for most alarm panels made within the last decade that uses Industry Standard Contact ID format for reporting. This option is now available on the VM101 WiFi and the VM101 C/IP Internet Alarm Communicator units. Both units support the Virtual Keypad on Compatible Panels and a Virtual Key switch on those panels that will support a key switch zone. With both the Virtual Keypad and Virtual Key Switch available on our ipFob app, this makes controlling your panel so much easer.

Automatic, end-to-end line supervision
One of the most important feature we offer is line security — we’ll tell you within a few minutes if we lose contact with your alarm system (i.e. if your ISP goes down, or your house line is cut). By contrast, when your alarm system is plugged into a POTS line (as is traditionally done), there is no way for the monitoring station to know if, for example, your telephone line is cut (by an intruder). You might find out in a few hours if, for example, your alarm system misses it’s daily test signal. But you won’t know in real-time. When choosing an Internet Broadband Alarm Adaptor, make sure they are offering you polling as well. The last thing you want is to come home and find your home was broken into but you did not know the Internet was down or someone cut the Internet line. We have read a few cases of this on the Internet and want you to be aware of it.
As a stand alone solution
(Self Alarm Monitoring) You choose the destination of each type of signal. Alarm, supervisory, trouble, Open/Close. Signals can be routed directly up to 20 contacts on select plans, via email, text, PUSH when using ipFob and or automated voice . There is no live operator response, and the police will not be disatched if there is an alarm. You can handle the event as you see fit, up to and including calling your local police. It's perfect for the consumer or do-it-yourself er who may not feel the need for traditional alarm monitoring, but still wants to be notified of signals from their security system. My Virtual Monitoring alerts the people who care most about the security of their home. The owner, family and friends. Read more...
Voip Alarm Monitoring
As more and more homes and businesses make the switch to VoIP, they are finding out. sometimes the hard way that their alarm systems cannot communicate over VoIP phone service reliably. Voip Alarm Monitoring is not secure. An alarm system is designed to send its signals over an analog phone line. To transmit emergency signals properly using VoIP, the signal must be converted to digital and then converted again to analog. It is during this conversion that problems develop. Usually the signals arrive at the central monitoring station with errors, or not at all. My Virtual Monitoring does not use VoIP and can route the signal to you and or any central station for live operator response if you wish. Even if you have VoIP phone service, it is not a problem with the VM101 BAT because we are not using that service.
Our VM101 Broadband Alarm Transmitter BAT Alarm Panel Internet Adapters operate over any Broadband Internet connection, Cable, DSL, FIOS, Satellite, 3G or 4G Cellular Internet.

Why spend the extra money to keep the old landline just for the alarm system.
