Honeywell is focused on providing the future of alarm communication solutions
for the security industry. Alternative communication methods are critical in the
marketplace due to VoIP, migration from POTS and global growth of digital
Honeywell’s Internet and Digital Cellular Communicators deliver secure,
reliable and complementary digital communications via the Internet and GSM
(Global System for Mobile) network. Our use of Triple-Path Internet, GPRS
service, and SMS backup provides substantial benefits to protect your investment
by future-proofing your recurring revenue.
Two-Way Voice over GSM
Honeywell’s Internet and GSM
communicators with two-way voice transport capability via AlarmNet, let you
provide two-way voice service to your customers regardless of the premises phone
system. Honeywell’s GSM products and AlarmNet service have been designed to
overcome communications challenges, maintain connectivity and increase RMR.
This groundbreaking communications solution offers full data reporting and
uploading/downloading with most Honeywell control panels. In addition, with
onboard zone inputs and optional dialer capture capability, we’re compatible
with other manufacturers’ security panels as well. Honeywell communication
products and control panels combine to make installations faster and easier.
All signals are delivered to Honeywell’s AlarmNet Network Control Center,
which routes the information to the appropriate central station. The
state-of-the-art AlarmNet Network Control Center is fully redundant and
monitored 24/7. AlarmNet has the ability to route messages using AlarmNet-i and
800 PLUS services, providing true redundancy and multi-path message delivery.
- Triple-Path Technology
Provides three paths of
communication using Internet, GPRS (General Packet Radio Service), and SMS
(Short Message Service). Uses Internet as primary with dual GSM technology as
back-up. GSM path utilizes GPRS and automatically switches to SMS if GPRS is
- Full Contact ID or ADEMCO High-Speed Reporting
Contact ID reporting using ECP mode with compatible Honeywell control
panels or combined with optional dialer capture for non-ECP capable control
- 256-bit AES Encryption
Advanced encryption standard
used for secure communications.
- Dual-Path Technology
Uses GPRS (General Packet Radio
Service) as primary digital cellular path and automatically switches to SMS
(Short Message Service) if GPRS is unavailable.
With select Honeywell control panels
using GPRS. Requires Compass version 188.8.131.52a or higher.
