3G and CDMA cellular radio replacement
- I received a letter/email about a 3G/CDMA cellular radio replacement and update for my alarm system. What do I need to do?
If you received a letter or voicemail from Premier Security on updating your 3G / CDMA cellular radio, it is very important to update your home or business security system as soon as possible. These older networks will be failing and it is essential you upgrade to the newer LTE network. Call 770-217-0670 now and a customer service representative will schedule a service appointment for a Premier Security technician to visit your location.
Premier Security is charging below cost on cellular radio replacement. $99.00 on all residential radio replacements unless otherwise specified.
Your Premier Security system contains a cellular radio transmitter that provides communications to our 24HR monitoring centers. The radio transmitter sends signals over the cellular networks of wireless carriers (i.e. AT&T, Verizon, etc.). They are in the process of updating their systems from 3G/CDMA to newer technologies such as 5G and 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution). When the Premier Security service technician visits you, he will replace the older existing radio of your security with a new radio that will work on the upgraded carriers’ network.
Changing the existing cellular radio is not a do-it-yourself activity. Premier Security requires the upgrade be performed by one of our service technicians. The technician will install the new unit, activate it on the carrier’s network and test communication to our central station. The technician will be measuring signal strength for optimal placement of the unit. Please call the number 770-217-0670 to begin updating your system.
If you have not received an email or a letter yet or cannot find it, please call 770-217-0670 to speak with a representative and schedule a service appointment. Premier Security is tiering customer replacements by oldest cellular radio replacements 1st.
