Can unmonitored Simon XTi autodial thru a landline

I am trying to avoid montly monitoring fees.

1) Can the Simon XTi be hooked up to call a landline and be programed to call my cell phone directly?

2) Or is there an landline auto accessorie I can purchase?

I understand that landlines are not reliable and easily cut,

Thanks,
Lolly

Yes, it has settings that allow it to dial out and act as a voice dialer directly, so no other hardware would be needed.

The truth of the matter is that the "cutting" landline thing is somewhat overblown. Frankly, if you are dealing with someone who's enough of a pro to know to try to cut the telco line at the demarc, a consumer grade, self installed, security system isn't really going to deter them.

What a security system really does is makes the location too much of a hassle for the casual burgler to mess with.
