Maybe not, but at least it's a pretty reasonable assumption that if
both the cellular and land line communications are severed, something
funny is going on.  Whoever is monitoring the home can be fairly sure
that a call to the police is warranted.  If the system relies on just
one of those, it's much more likely (than if two went down) that it's
just a random failure.
