Backup Power Information

Backup Power for Home Phone Services during Power Outages

For many years, your home phone would allow you to stay connected to emergency voice services during a power outage. However, many of today's advanced home phone services require backup battery power to continue functioning during an outage. To avoid a disruption of home voice service during an outage - and to maintain the ability to connect to 911 emergency services - we at SNC provide, at no cost to our customers, an 8 hour battery backup.

What Your Battery Can and Can't Do for You

SNC's backup batteries for telephone allow you to continue to use your home voice services during a power outage. Without a backup battery or alternate backup source such as a generator, customers will not be able to make any calls, including emergency calls to 911. The only way to maintain the ability to use your phone is by using some form of backup power. Our backup battery does not provide power to any services other than voice. Home security systems, medical monitoring devices and other equipment will not run on a home phone backup battery.

Expected Backup Power Duration

Backup batteries are expected to last at least 8 hours on standby power. The backup battery should give you 6 hours of talk time.
