What You Need To Know About 2G Sunset

If your current alarm system is using 2G cellular technology, there’s a very unfortunate possibility that your security system will no longer communicate effectively with a monitoring station. Here’s what all of Titan Alarm’s customers need to know about this extremely important update:

This is out of our control. An extremely large number of home and commercial wireless security systems use AT&T’s 2G cellular network to communicate with the co-inciding monitoring stations. Unfortunately AT&T has announced that by the end of 2016, they will be shutting down their 2G network and change all of their cell towers over to 4G cellular. AT&T is calling this transition the 2G Sunset and that is why your system is going to need to be updated. To put it in basic layman’s terms, 2G and 4G do not communicate the same language.

Update NOW. AT&T is starting to shut off many cell towers throughout the different markets and regions throughout 2016, that’s why it is so important to do the update immediately. Titan Alarm wants to keep your security system always on the cutting edge of technology. If AT&T turns off the 2G network in your area before your security system has been updated then your security system will stop communicating with the monitoring company without any notice to you. We want to keep you safe and keep your security system working, so make sure you contact Titan Alarm today to make sure that your security system gets the required update.

It’s not just Titan Alarm’s customers. Believe it or not, not just Titan Alarm and our customers are being effected by this fade out. Every security provider that uses wireless security systems is facing the same issue. We’re trying to be extremely proactive because nothing is more important to Titan Alarm than our customer’s safety.

What is 2G, anyway? It’s just a fancy way of saying “second-generation.” So it’s not hard to guess what 3G and 4G stand for. It’s all part of the same technology your smartphone uses.

Smartphone not affected. If you control your keypad or home automation from your smartphone, that’ll still work once your keypad is updated. You won’t need to do anything to your phone.


If you’re a Titan Alarm customer and you’re unsure if you have a 2G system, please call 602.680.4567 and we can assist you and help you figure out what you need to know about your Titan Alarm Home Security System.

Press Release – February 2016

[et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]

Titan Alarm Inc. closes a $5 Million dollar line of credit.

Over the last 5 years Titan Alarm Inc. based in Phoenix Arizona has been focused on generating significant recurring monthly revenue (RMR) with commercial and residential services, company COO Taylor Proudfittold Security Systems News.


“We have been able to organically generate nearly $150,000 in RMR, one by one and now it is time to double our growth through acquisitions that fit our business model,” said Taylor Proudfit.  “It is exciting to see the transition and growth we have achieved as a company over the last few years as we have focused heavily on commercial services.  We recently closed on a $5,000,000 dollar line with The PrivateBank which allows for future growth opportunities here in our local Arizona market,” commented CEO Mike Proudfit.  Mike went on to say, “Arizona has a large need for a company that understands and deploys surveillance, access control, fire, and burglar alarm systems all under oneroof.” Titan Alarm Inc. is not only in touch with the needs of the market but is also sensitive to the fact that most small companies can’t afford a $10,000 cameras system as they launch their new business.  Titan Alarm now offers small IP camera packages with DVR professionally installed for little or no money down with a low monthly fee for the camera systems.


Mike went on to comment, “closing on the bank line really just opens the door for Titan to grow at a much faster pace than we have in the past.  We are now one of just a handful of family owned and locally operated alarm companies in the state of Arizona with financial backing to acquire other local companies.”

What Is Crash and Smash Protection?


When someone is a professional Burglar, they have developed many different ways to get into a house undetected. Some of them are quiet and stealthy, while others are fast. With a Titan Alarm system, Crash and Smash Protection is a safeguard that is already installed into your home security system.

Now you may be asking yourself, “What is Crash and Smash?”, if you keep on reading, we’ll explain to you in detail so that you can be prepared for it.

What is “Crash and Smash”?

A “Crash and Smash” is when a burglar and intruder targets the house’s home security panel as the first thing to find when they enter a house. The intruder will then “crash” into the house by smashing through the front door, and then the hunt is on for them to “smash” the home security panel as fast as possible.

When an intruder or burglar uses this technique, they are trying to take advantage of the entry delay that home security systems use to give the homeowner a chance to disarm the system when they arrive home. They normally have 30-60 seconds, which normally would give you plenty of time to open your app and disarm the system. With a normal break in, the panel counts all the way down, and once it’s at zero, will then alert emergency responders. In a “Crash and Smash” burglary, the intruder tries to destroy the home security panel before it can send the signal out to first responders.

30-60 seconds doesn’t seem like a lot of time, but for an experienced burglar or intruder, it’s plenty of time for them to get in, find the panel and to destroy it with a hammer.

Luckily with Titan Alarm, we use a patented crash and smash technology, that way your system will still work, even if the intruder can get to and destroy your panel.




How Does Crash and Smash Protection Work?

Titan Alarm’s smart home security system is constantly monitoring activity around the home to proactively protect you from events like a burglar attempting a crash and smash burglary. All of this happens constantly and securely in a cloud storage platform, so it’s completely untouchable to a burglar so you and your security system go unharmed.

Once your smart home security system starts it’s initial countdown, the central system monitoring station takes note, if the security panel abruptly goes off-line before sending a disarm or an emergency signal, then the central station monitoring reports a suspected Crash and Smash situation in your home, and alerts the necessary first responders and emergency personnel.

Crash and Smash Protection is one of the many innovative ways that Titan Alarm will protect you and your loved ones with.
