The Honeywell GSMVLP-4G is an AlarmNet LYNX Plus cellular alarm monitoring communicator for the L3000 LYNX Plus alarm control panel. The LYNX Plus is the only control panel that supports the GSMVLP-4G. Prior to the release of the GSMVLP-4G, the now discontinued GSMVLP was the only cellular 2G alarm communicator you could use with a LYNX Plus security system. If you are looking for an internet alarm communicator that works with the L3000, the Honeywell 7847i-L was a viable alternative, however this unit was recently discontinued.
The GSMVLP-4G from AlarmNet is the latest 4G cellular alarm communicator to be released by Honeywell. Once AT&T announced that they would no longer be supporting their 2G cellular network after the end of 2016, Honeywell quickly began replacing all of their existing 2G communicators, like the GSMVLP, with newer 4G versions. We recommend that anyone purchasing a cellular alarm communicator today choose a the latest and greatest 4G version. If you do choose to go with an older 2G capable communicator, you will have to replace the device once the 2G network has disappeared. While AT&T says that will be at the end of 2016, certain areas of the country will lose 2G service even before that time. By investing in a 4G cellular alarm communicator today, you can be confident that your alarm communications will be secure and reliable well into the future.
Adding an AlarmNet GSMVLP-4G to a LYNX Plus wireless security system allows you to sign up for GEOARM cellular alarm monitoring services. While the LYNX Plus alarm control panel supports phone line alarm monitoring without needing an alternative alarm monitoring communicator, most people these days prefer cellular alarm monitoring due to its wireless nature. If you are relying on your home or business phone line for monitoring service, your security system is vulnerable to a criminal cutting your phone line wire before entering the home. With the phone line cut, no alarm signal would reach GEOARM's central station. However, if your L3000 system has a cellular alarm communicator like the GSMVLP-4G, there is no risk of someone cutting your line. As the GSMVLP4G uses a wireless alarm transmission path, it is a more reliable and widely considered the most secure form of alarm communications to date. Another advantage of the GSVMLP-4G is that you don't need to have phone service at your home to have your security system monitored. With the huge popularity of cell phones, many people no longer have a need for the traditional home phone. However, many people that would otherwise be able to eliminate their phone service, and save on their monthly phone bill, are forced to keep the service because their alarm system uses that traditional phone line to communicate. These people would be able to free themselves from their home phone by simply adding a cellular GSMVLP-4G alarm communicator to their L3000 security system.
Unlike other cellular alarm communicators, the GSMVLP-4G is an AlarmNet communicator and therefore supports Honeywell's Total Connect 2.0 service. Most AlarmNet dealers that offer AlarmNet alarm monitoring services only offer Total Connect as an add-on to a central station monitoring plan. While we offer Total Connect with our monitoring plus plan, GEOARM also has a special self monitoring plan which includes Total Connect access without the added cost of a central station plan. Add a GSMVLP-4G to your L3000 LYNX Plus security system and sign up for one of our alarm monitoring plans that include Total Connect 2.0 interactive capabilities. Remotely arm and disarm your system from any computer or smartphone at anytime!
The Honeywell GSMVLP-4G is a cellular communicator that transmit signals to the Honeywell Alarmnet server. From there the signals can be sent to the GEOARM central station and/or the Total Connect 2.0 application. Honeywell cellular security systems are extremely versatile and secure! The ability to install a system and have it send signals without an internet or phone connection is a wonderful thing. Whether you have a vacation home, remote warehouse or just simply do not have phone or internet service a cellular communicator is a great option.
