Almost 40 million security systems will be connected to European mobile networks in 2015

A new research report from Berg Insight forecasts that the number of tracking devices and wireless alarm systems monitored via mobile networks by alarm receiving centres will grow at the equivalent of 41% per year within Europe, from 7 million in 2010 to 39.2 million by the end of 2015.

The number of wireless machine-to-machine modules shipped for security applications will grow at an even higher rate, increasing from last year’s figure of 2.4 million wireless M2M modules across 29 countries to 21.4 million in 2015.

Berg Insight says wireless M2M communication within the security industry is mainly used for tracking cars and commercial vehicles via a combination of GSM and GPS technology. However, it notes that property intruder alarms are increasingly turning to mobile connections alongside fixed lines to increase reliability.
