The SCW 9045 is a bit of an older security system that is no longer manufactured and as far as communicating alarm signals back to the central alarm monitoring station it is limited to two options. 


The first option would be if you have a compatible phone/VOIP line wired directly into the 9045 panel. Once you have the phone line tied into your security system sign up for Phone line Alarm Monitoringwith rates starting at No Contract $10/month


The second option would be a universal cellular communicator such as, the Telular Tg-1 Express cellular alarm communicator. The Telular TG-1 express is a great way to salvage this outdated alarm panel because it allows for more modern modes of alarm monitoring services with its new 3G/4G options through both AT&T and Verizon.
