Point 2 Point transmission eliminates middleman outages.
WiFi devices use a cloud-based infrastructure, which utilizes a server, creating a central point of failure. Who is managing and running the server that powers your sump pump alarm notifications? Is it your pump manufacturer, the alarm provider, some guy in his basement? When the servers fail, how can your device transmit the alarm to you? If your app can’t receive data because the servers are down, how do you get your notifications?
With Point 2 Point transmission, which PumpAlarm.com utilizes, there is no middleman server, communication is sent directly from your device to the robust Verizon Wireless Cellular network then to your phone via text message. This eliminates the server and the inherit problems with a central point of failure.
