How to rewire home phone wiring system so my home security system can work with Vonage cable phone?

I recently switched from traditional landline phone to Vonage cable internet phone. However, my home security system can not communicate with the monitoring station as a result of disconnecting the phone line. How could I rewire my home phone wires to make my home security system work with the internet phone?

Internet phone service in not considered reliable for security systems. These type of phone systems can have a hiccup in the audio just like a cell phone does.This can mean a loss of data during the sending of the signal.
Wireless security system is very good for more details just go to this site

    You can’t. Your alarm will not communicate through Vonage, or any voip phone service, except maybe your local cable company. You will have to purchase a GSM cell radio for wireless communication, or go back to a land line phone.

    You really can’t. I’ve got a friend who is a pro with home security systems (http://www.alarm.com/) and he says that you can try and it might work for a few weeks in a row even, but it’s too hard to keep it working.

    I did some searches on my own because I too was looking to snip my connection to the telco after getting setup with email fax. The forums are FULL of people claiming they are getting cheated by security installers that keep having to come fix IP based phone conversions. The installer forums are full of installers complaining about people with IP phones trying to get monitoring service.

    It’s pretty well established that you really can’t do it, not with a phone based security system. If you get an IP based security system, then you not only get to ditch the phone line, you can get cheaper monitoring fees and more triggers/options for notifications.
