To be honest, any solution which depends on multiple pieces of network
hardware to be powered and working like that sounds a little prone to
failing at some crucial point.
One of the reasons I didn't go with ISDN was that (as far as I'm aware)
the BRI end point needs mains power to operate. I suppose the ideal
solution would be if one of the mobile operators provided a monitoring
service based around GPRS, but I'm not aware of such a thing actually
