Q. Why do I need a DSL filter and how can I get one?
A. A DSL filter is an analog device that improves a DSL connection by minimizing telephone signal interference with the DSL system.

If you have DSL (through your phone company) for your broadband internet you will need to purchase a DSL filter that is specifically made to work with your alarm.  You can contact us to have us install it for you by calling us at 1-800-457-7252 or click here to request more information.
