Verizon CDMA Security System Cellular Communicators
Adding a cellular communicator is one of the most important upgrades you can make for a security system. Once a system has a stable cellular connection, it is highly unlikely that it will ever experience any sort of disruption in active monitoring service. That is why we place such a strong emphasis on cellular monitoring. It's important to understand that cellular communication is extremely consistent and reliable. The same cannot be said for WIFI connectivity, which regularly goes down. In fact, it is relatively common for a WIFI connection to become suddenly unavailable for seemingly no reason. Additionally, any sort of power outage will make WIFI connectivity unavailable, and any system that relies solely on a WIFI connection will be left unprotected. Meanwhile, a system running a cellular connection will continue to receive full monitoring protection.
When choosing a Verizon CDMA Cellular Communicator, it is important that you make sure the module is compatible with the system your are using. For instance, a wireless all-in-one security system, like the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210, will not use the same communicator as a wired alarm panel, like the Honeywell VISTA-15P. Indeed, system compatibility is one of the most critical factors when searching for a cellular communicator. Users should also be aware that a CDMA Cellular Radio will need to be activated and registered with an alarm monitoring company before it will function. This will require an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular connectivity. Some examples of these plans include the Gold and Platinum level monitoring plans from Alarm Grid.
