What is BT Redcare?

Firstly Redcare is a BT product which combines a secure redcare landline connection with a GSM radio backup path. In the event of a line cut, redcare enables the alarm system to be monitored by radio path. If line failure occurs the Alarm Receiving Station is informed, but the GSM Radio path will continue to communicate sending out any subsequent alarm signals.

Redcare Alarm systems

A BT Redcare GSM alarm is capable of sending out a confirmed activation signal if either the primary landline or secondary radio path is lost, regardless of which one is lost first. Redcare offers the most secure form of alarm monitoring available.

The service provides continuous monitoring of a BT telephone line that links your ITS Security’s installed alarm system to the Alarm Receiving Centre. The result is the continuous protection of our customer’s property, every second of the day, 365 days a year.

Unlike other alarm monitoring services, redcare both alerts the Alarm Receiving Centre when it detects a line cut AND provides encryption to prevent the substitution of equipment “spoofing”  (emulation) of line conditions. This is why redcare is the most secure system of its kind.
