Redcare home monitoring alarms
It was not long that long ago that there was not a specific BT home

To meet this shortfall in the market place BT introduced Redcare home
monitoring which is a grade 2 domestic product under the new European
Standards, EN50131. In short it is a light version of the Commercial package,
and the Market leader in its field.
Redcare home monitoring is equipped with dual path protection also using as
the secondary path gsm radio signals via the 02 mobile phone network. Redcare
home monitoring offers a higher level of security that any other Grade 2 system.
This product still carries the BT redcare guarantee, and is compliant to
EN50131, PD6662 and DD243 in relation to a Grade 2 (Domestic) Alarm system, and
is compliant with the Police requirement for a level 1 Police response.

other providers telephone lines and a dedicated BT line is not mandatory. If you
are using a cheap call provider as well, then BT may need to be consulted as
their computers have to be able to communicate with the alarm, and some call
providers may pose an issue for them but not all do.
