3G Technology from DSC
It may not look like much, but this simple alarm communicator may save your life-or at least spare you thousands of dollars in property loss-in the event of a break-in. The 3G3070-USA DSC Universal Wireless 3G GSM Cellular Alarm Communicator connects your alarm control panel to the HSPA network and reports alarm signals directly to a monitoring station receiver (Sur-Gard System I/II/III/IV). By using the HSPA network, this device is able to ensure low-cost, high-speed and reliable communications, and best of all, it's compatible with all control panels that use the Contact ID format.
How it Works
The 3G3070 is installed between the telephone connection of a control panel and telephone line. When used as a backup device, the communicator assesses the connection to the PSTN phone line, and if that fails, it then connects to the HSPA network to send an alarm signal to the monitoring station. If used in a primary role, the communicator immediately sends the alarm transmission over the HSPA network.
Alarm signals are sent to the IP linecard of the monitoring station receiver (Sur-Gard System (I/II/III/IV) without the need for clearinghouse involvement. You can activate and initialize the unit using the automated telephone activation system (VRU), mobile interface or Web-user interface provided by CONNECT 24. No special tools are needed.
Activating & Initializing the Unit
Activating and initializing the 3G3070 can be done using the automated telephone activation system (VRU), mobile interface or Web-user interface provided by CONNECT 24. No special tools are required.
Advance Panel Transmission Monitoring
The 3G3070 can intelligently monitor the panel transmission and switch over to the HSPA network when the phone line is down. This function will occur for both traditional POTS and newer digital technologies (i.e. VoIP).
The 3G3070 has been listed by UL for Residential Fire and Burglary and Commercial Burglary installations. The device has been investigated under the requirements of UL985, UL1023 and UL1610 standards.
