New cellular modules enable the NetworX series of security panels to communicate signals wirelessly over either 3G HSPA or CDMA cellular networks. This provides users with Alarm.com’s secure wireless signaling and convenient functionality including real-time event notification, Web-based remote monitoring and other home system control capabilities. The digital wireless communication also enables secure alarm reporting to any central station via SIA or Contact ID, regardless of whether a phone line is installed at the system location. Users can remotely monitor and control their security system via smartphone, tablet or via the Alarm.com website. Features include viewing system status and history, arming and disarming the system, setting up user codes, and creating customized email and text message notifications for any type of alarm or non-alarm activity at the property. Additionally, using the Z-Wave® enabled modems enables the control of Z-Wave class devices such as lighting and thermostats.
The modules interface with the NetworX panel data bus and are powered by the panel. Status LEDs on the module allow for cellular signal strength checking, as well as troubleshooting during installation. The cellular module can be used as the primary means of communication or as a backup to a landline phone connection. Each NetworX panel supports a maximum of one wireless module.
For added peace of mind, an optional tamper detection switch is available that signals when the module cover is removed.
