VISTA-21iP…Multiple Communication Paths
Our VISTA-GSM Digital Communicators can send the signal over the GPRS Network. If GPRS is unavailable, the signal can be transmitted via the SMS network.

Signals are transmitted from the protected premise upon an alarm condition.
With the IP communicator built on-board, Dynamic Signaling priority is selectable along with Dynamic Signaling Delay. If the Internet is selected as the primary path and becomes unavailable, the VISTA-GSM automatically attempts to send the signal over the GSM network. During this time, the system will continuously try to re-establish the connection with the Internet for the next signal.
Our groundbreaking solutions like Quad-Path technology increase the reliability of security communications so signals get through. For the VISTA-GSM, Dual-Path GSM communication utilizes GPRS and automatically switches to SMS if GPRS is unavailable. Honeywell adds Internet capability along with GPRS, SMS technology and TELCO connectivity to provide Quad-Path communications. In this case, the Internet is used as the primary path with GSM technology as a back-up.
Quad-Path communications include: – GPRS – SMS – Internet – TELCO
Dedicated Managed Private Networks
The carrier identifies the GPRS or SMS signal as coming from Honeywell, and manages it separately from all other signals on their network. This ensures delivery to AlarmNet.
AlarmNet Network Control Center
AlarmNet processes signals from powerful servers in multiple locations equipped with 24/7 infrastructure support. The AlarmNet network consists of redundant hardware servers, hot back-up databases and generators with battery back-up at all locations to ensure continuity of service.
Signals from AlarmNet are transmitted to central station receivers using multiple communications paths consisting of the Internet, radio network or toll-free POTS service.
