I think that Redcare may run over a standard line in a similar way to ADSL. A 
local company had several telephone lines, with ADSL on one and Redcare on 
another. Unfortunately the company did not which line carried which service, 
so there was confusion every time there was a line fault, with the BT engineer 
only sent to fix a fault on a particular (wrong) line and unwilling to touch 
anything else.
