This radio is getting phased out with all other 2G devices by the cellular companies. Spend a little more on the 4550 4G device and get an additional 10 years of cell service.

This is a great unit. The power consumption is so low you can connect it to you existing alarm system battery wires as stated in the instructions. I've used this unit in over 100 installations and it has never failed. It hasn't shortened the alarm panel battery life any that I can tell. The batteries seem to last 5 to 7 years. There is an optional full detail event device available but of course you can just look at your alarm keypad. The monitoring company will recieve a burglary or fire signal but not where the event occurred without the full detail device. Very economically priced.

Works okay, but I wouldn't buy it again. To use this, you MUST also buy an Elk P624 power supply, a 16.5 45VA transformer, a sealed lead acid battery rated at at least 2.5 up to 10 amps, and 18 gauge 2-wire cable to connect the transformer to the power supply and the power supply to the Uplink. These cost you anywhere from $60-$100, plus you must hook it all up. Further, the Uplink 2500 only sends burglary and fire signals, not full information about your zones.
