GSMX - Honeywell AlarmNet Wireless 2G GSM Cellular Alarm Communicator (for VISTA-Series Panels)

GSMX - Honeywell AlarmNet Wireless 2G GSM Cellular Alarm Communicator (for VISTA-Series Panels)
Please Note: The Honeywell GSMX wireless cellular communicator (for VISTA-Series Panels) has been discontinued without replacement.

GSMX Honeywell AlarmNet Wireless Cellular GSM Alarm Communicator Product Description:
GeoArm is an industry leader in alternative alarm communication paths. We recognize that a traditional phone line (POTS) is no longer the only way to communicate alarm signals. With the emergence of VoIP and the huge growth in wireless networks, you can now free your security system from a POTS line and eliminate your expensive monthly phone bill.

GeoArm is proud to have partnered with Honeywell’s AlarmNet to offer a cellular alarm communication path. The GSMX connects to compatible Honeywell Vista alarm control panels with an easy 4-wire connection, 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 alarm delivery for the GSMX. Short Messaging Service (SMS) is the secondary path and is used by the GSMX as a backup in the event that GPRS fails. The two paths operate independently within the GSM network, and by using both, the GSMX is a more reliable/secure alarm communicator.

Once installed, your Honeywell Vista security system will deliver all alarm signals through the GSMX cellular communicator to Honeywell’s AlarmNet Network Control Center, which automatically and immediately routes the information to GeoArm's 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.

Remote Service Calls:
GeoArm is able to dial into your Honeywell Vista control panel’s programming to perform remote service once you have installed your GSMX alarm communicator. GeoArm technicians can make advanced technical programming changes in minutes through your AlarmNet communicator. Never pay for an expensive house service call again.

AlarmNet Interactive Alarm Monitoring (Total Connect):
The GSMX cellular alarm communicator not only gives you the flexibility to eliminate your phone line, it also provides you with the ability to get more out of your wireless security system. With each of the AlarmNet communicators (IP, Cellular, and IP/Cellular), you have the option to add GeoArm's interactive alarm monitoring service (Honeywell’s Total Connect service) to your alarm monitoring plan.

With interactive alarm monitoring you will be provided with a web based log-in that will allow you to:
  • Control your alarm system with a virtual keypad
  • Arm/Disarm your system with a text message
  • Set up email notifications for up to (8) system events
  • Log onto your Total Connect account through a compatible PDA or cell phone
