Honeywell Home AlarmNet CELL-ANT3dBPK - Install Guide Dated 09/2019
ANT3dBPK Remote Weatherproof Antenna Kit
dB supports 14 global cellular frequency bands for 4G LTE, 3G WCDMA and CDMA. It should be used on
installations where the antenna must be mounted at some distance from the communicator.
dB is rated for outdoor installations but can also be mounted in attics, plenums and other indoor spaces. The
spoked ground plane reduces the effects of ice and rain on antenna performance while maintaining the antenna
’s low profile.
For reliable service, the communication module
should only be installed in locations where there is satisfactory signal strength.
The signal strength (green) LED lights steady to indicate satisfactory signal strength.
