The Honeywell GSMVLP cellular GSM alarm communicator has been discontinued and replaced by the GSMVLP-4G model.
The GSMVLP is an optional communication module intended for use with Lynx Plus Series/ReadyGuard Plus Series controls, and provides wireless communication with the AlarmNet network for delivery of alarm and other messages to the GEOARM monitoring central station. It also supports voice communications between the control panel and the GEOARM central station. The GSMVLP Cellular Communicator fits into the Lynx Plus Series/ReadyGuard Plus Series controls, and transmits signals to the AlarmNet-G network (GSM cellular network, which uses GPRS to complete these transmissions) and forwards them the GEOARM central station. If the GPRS network is unavailable, the GSML will attempt to send the transmission via SMS (Short Message Service).
The Honeywell GSMVLP cellular GSM alarm communicator fits right inside the LYNX Plus wireless alarm control panel, providing an easy streamlined installation for those customers looking to have their security system monitored over the cellular Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) network instead of a traditional phone line. GSM is the dominant mobile phone system worldwide and has two different paths within one network. General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) is the primary path and the first method of cellular alarm delivery for the GSMVLP cellular alarm communicator. Short Messaging Service (SMS) is the secondary path and is used by the AlarmNet GSMVLP wireless alarm communicator as a backup alarm monitoring path in the event that the GPRS path fails. The two cellular alarm monitoring paths operate independently within the overall cellular GSM network, and by using both, the GSMVLP cellular alarm communicator is the most reliable/secure alarm communicator.
Once the AlarmNet GSMVLP cellular alarm communicator is installed, the LYNX Plus wireless security system will deliver all alarm signals through the GSMVLP wireless alarm communicator to Honeywell's AlarmNet Network Control Center, which automatically and immediately routes the information to GeoArm's central alarm monitoring 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.
