Criminals love older technology because they are fully aware of its weaknesses and where the systems are easy to crack through. Many security system owners also don’t realize that it’s more expensive to use landlines solely for the purpose of their security system, or that landlines can easily be disabled by criminals. Technology has improved security systems and, because of every change that it brings, an upgrade becomes necessary.
