PSTN Landline Kits

You are here

The Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) which is also often referred to as a Landline.

Just like the standard telephone in your home, our PSTN (Landline) entry system has to be connected to its own cabled telephone line* and have its own telephone number so that it can communicate as your programming requires to any telephone, anywhere.
