I have a couple of questions that I can't seem to answer on my own by searching online, so I thought I'd pose them here to see if anyone can offer me answers, or a nudge in the right direction.
1: I have coax cable entering my dwelling from 2 points for internet, one at the front and one at the back. Supposedly (according to the technician that installed the second wire) they go to the same place on the pole. Is there any reason I can't connect both of them to a reversed Y-adapter so that if one wire is severed, the other will continue to allow my router to remain connected uninterrupted?
2: Does there exist a device or a way to rig up something to monitor coax connections for tampering without interfering with the signal that's being transmitted over that connection? I'd like to be able to use a couple of zones on my Elk-M1G so that if any potential thieves try to cut off communication from outside, my system will recognize that and set off the alarm, then send me a text.
Note: I am not looking to install a cellular solution since I don't want to pay an additional fee every month.
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
