No luck.

The line seizure works correctly. When I hook up the phone I can hear the dialing, modem tone but no answer from the Alarm panel. Then redial after redial. Sounds more like a problem with the alarm panel than Ooma.

Unfortunately, this could be related to the faxing issues reported.

Again, we don't recommend connecting security systems to Ooma. ie: If the power were to go out or Ooma were to go down, your security system would be rendered inoperable.


I wholeheartedly agree with this. In addition to ooma outages and power failures*, your ISP could go down, or a network device could fail (or lock up), e.g. modem, router, switch, hub, etc.

My rationale is that the money I save on phone more than covers the cost of "cell guard" (ADT's wireless solution).

* Of course you could every network device on a UPS, which is not a bad idea (that's the way I have it), but this is an additional cost and maintenance item.
