THE 3G NETWORK IS BEING SHUTDOWN
NOW IS THE TIME TO UPGRADE TO 4G
BEAT THE RUSH AND UPGRADE EARLY
The 3G network will be completely shutdown by June 2024. If your security system is reliant on the 3G network it is in danger of not being able to communicate alerts to you and our monitoring control room. While 3G was the best option at the time of your installation, you will need to upgrade to the 4G network to keep your system fully operational.
WHY SHOULD YOU UPDATE TO 4G NOW?
How Will The 3G Shutdown Affect Your System?
Your security system includes a cellular network device that it uses to communicate with our control room in the event of an emergency. If your device is currently reliant on 3G networks, it will no longer function when the 3G shutdown takes place in your area.
As a result of the 3G network shutdown, your alarm may appear to continue functioning but, it will no longer be able to communicate with our control room to notify us if anything happens on your property. Any devices that currently use 3G will no longer have network functionality and will need to update their systems network device to 4G to avoid any potential disruptions.

Rechenberg can Guide You Through Your 4G Upgrade
Rechenberg knows how important it is to keep your family safe and keep your peace of mind. If your security system is currently using 3G, when the shutdown happens in your area, your system may lose its ability to communicate with our control room in the event of an emergency.
Don’t wait, contact Rechenberg today to check if your system is using a 3G network device and schedule an upgrade. We want to ensure your home and family stay safe and secure.
Although wireless carriers have stated the 3G network will not be shutdown until 2024, this does not guarantee 3G services will be fully available until the shutdown, Your area may be affected before this date. It is common practice for carriers to reduce coverage during transition periods by upgrading their cellular towers to support 4G networks. We recommend upgrading to 4G as soon as possible to avoid any problems and disruptions.
UPGRADE BEFORE THE 3G SHUTDOWN – JUNE 2024
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE 3G SHUTDOWN
The 3G cellular network is being shutdown. Any device that relies on the 3G network will not be able to send or receive any alerts after it loses its connection.
To ensure your devices continue to function and send out alerts to you and our control room please upgrade to 4G today.
Upgrading early guarantees you access to a 4G network device and avoids delays in installation that can cost you valuable downtime if you wait until your system loses connection.
The 3G network will not be completely shutdown until June 2024. Prior to that date, the 3G network will be upgrading any failing 3G network towers rather than repairing them.
If this happens you may find your 3G network connection has disappeared without notice if a tower goes down in your area. Without this connection your security devices won’t be able to send out alerts to you or our control room. This is why we recommend upgrading to a 4G system as soon as possible.
No, you won’t have to replace your entire system.
In most cases it is only a network device that needs to be replaced with a 4G version. The rest of your system should be able to resume normal operation after this upgrade. However depending on the age and type of system you have installed additional components may be required.
