Eircom Limited are withdrawing their ‘Fixed SMS’ service.
The ‘Fixed SMS’ service is the ability to send and receive SMS (text messages) via a landline phone. This service will be completely withdrawn from all customers on 30th June 2015.
It will not be possible to send or receive SMS text messages via eircom landlines after this date.
‘Fixed SMS’ functionality may be used to support certain services provided by Alarm Companies. Some alarm systems may use this technology to trigger notifications to customers mobile phones informing them that their alarm has been activated. Systems that exclusively use ‘Fixed SMS’ for alerts will cease to send and receive notifications from 30th June 2014.
If your Alarm notifications are forwarded by GSM technology instead of your Landline phone, your system will be unaffected by these changes.
All Central Station Monitored Systems are also unaffected by these changes.
If you are affected by these changes please contact our office to discuss your options.
