Home security is connected to a central by landline for monitoring(theft, fire..)

The manual says that the WF721 does not work with most security systems  (p16),
so you would have check with your current security.company.

Conventional home alarm systems require special jumpers on your landline to allow the system to monitor if the line has been cut, and to be able to interrupt any current call to reach the central directly.


Switching out your landline would involve a major upgrade to your alarm system, but that seems to require a dedicated cell line.

Check with the alarm monitoring outits serving your area.
