I am seeking a little advice on telephone services line and internet connection. If a BT telephone line installation as a call messanger service, plus an emergency response system installed, can the same line be converted to receive a broadband service.Would the internet connection cause any problems.
I have a BT line, I connect to adsl via freeserve. On the same line I have an ADT Alarm system. The line also support's the sky box. I don't know how ADT have done it but they take presidence. EG, if the alarm / panic is activated then nothing else works other than that!!!
Did further checks, and this is the 'official' view. A single BT line can be used as a internet [56k or broadband]and voice line.The same line will also take an emergency line like Red Care.But BT will not allow the one line to run in conjunction with a system like Red Care.They insist that emergency lines are only used with voice lines.So if you have a standard BT line connected to your internet connection, you cannot have an emergency line on this same connection.BT will insist that you have a voice/emergency line and a separate internet line.Two line-two accounts.
You're nearly there! As I said earlier, Red Care is not compatible with ADSL. It's not a question of BT not allowing it, they will not work on the same line. It's a frequency thing, they share similar bandwidths. You could, however, have a 'dialler' alarm system with ADSL, is this what you had in mind all along? Red Care is quite expensive!
