PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
- Cellular Monitoring
Signals are transmitted to East Texas Alarm over the cellular network. We consider this the best method used today for your alarm system monitoring. Signals transmitted over the cellular network are also about 10x faster than over your basic phone line.
- Phone Line Monitoring
Signals are transmitted to East Texas Alarm over your phone line. This is the most common method used today, but not the most reliable because your phone line can be disabled, and signals would not be transmitted to East Texas Alarm's central station. However, your siren would still sound at your location.
- Internet Monitoring
Signals are transmitted to East Texas Alarm over the internet connection. Signals transmitted through the internet are about 10x faster than over the basic phone line. There are a few issues to consider, one being that you may want to have a UPS (unlimited power source) in case of power failure. Also, be aware that you will still have the risk of your cable lines being disabled, and signals not being transmitted to East Texas Alarm's central station. However, your siren would still sound at your location.

We can install a one-door stand-alone keypad all the way up to an entire campus. We offer a complete line of card readers, keypads, magnetic locks and electric strikes. We sell badge printer systems that interface with the Access Control System.
We can integrate access control with intrusion detection and CCTV systems for a unified security platform. If you are planning on an upgrade of your present access control system, give us a call. We have the ability to test the access cards that you are using now and in most cases, we can utilize your existing cabling, access cards and card readers. If you are ready to bring your access control to the IP era, East Texas Alarm can help with that as well by using IP-enabled door controllers to convert older systems.
Commercial Fire Alarm Systems
East Texas Alarm can design a fire alarm system for you that will meet all local and state fire codes.
East Texas Alarm uses non-proprietary fire alarm manufacturers. This means that any licensed fire alarm company can purchase the equipment we use at most distributors; you don't have to be locked in with East Texas Alarm if for some reason you become dissatisfied with our service.
We can monitor your system using three available technologies or a possible combination of them.
- Traditional phone line monitoring where we use two standard phone lines to transmit signals to our UL-listed Central Station.
- Using cellular technology to transmit signals to our licensed dispatchers. This can be combined with a phone line as a second path or use it as the sole path of communication at an increase in monthly monitoring fees.
- The latest technology for monitoring is to use the internet with an IP module.

Burglar Alarm Systems
Certainly all systems are not the same and customer needs and budgets are different. East Texas Alarm will meet with you and discuss all of the options and direct you to the best system available for your needs. Our "no pressure sales approach" explains and educates the customer so the customer can make the best decision for their needs and budget.
- Window and Door Contacts
We can install contacts on doors and/or windows to detect when opened. (This will not trip the alarm on a glass break attempt).
- Glassbreak Detectors
The glassbreak detector is designed to mount in the ceiling or wall of a room. The detector listens for the high frequency sound of breaking glass. Since the detector works on sound, the location of the detector is important (i.e. heavy draperies).
- Motion Detectors
Motion detectors are generally used for backup protection; however, they may be the primary detection device.
- Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors are typically installed in bedrooms and hallways.
- Heat Detectors
Heat detectors are typically installed in attics, AC closets, water heater closets and garages.
- iPhone/PDM Devices
East Texas Alarm offers application interfaces for iPhone and PDM devices to control the alarm system and other types of systems. These features are changing and additional household controls are coming.
- Wireless System
Wireless systems are available when needed. Typical uses involve hard to reach areas or locations that are difficult to access for wiring. The system monitors the wireless devices for low battery or loss of communication. The typical battery life is five (5) years on most devices.
