AlarmNet CELL-ANTST

Indoor Fixed Length Antenna

Installation Guide
General
The Communication Module uses an internal dual band cellular antenna. In most cases, this antenna will provide
sufficient signal strength for a successful installation.
The Honeywell Indoor Fixed Length Antenna should be used in installations where moving the antenna to a higher
point within the building will provide a better signal strength.
Installation Note: For best signal strength, maintain at least 12 inches of clearance between the communication
module and steel I-beams, HVAC ducts, metal studs, steel roofs or roofs, exterior walls with
metalized insulation or aluminum siding and other large metal objects.
Kit Includes: Antenna with cable
Antenna accessory pack
Hardware
Compatible Modules: Lyric-3G and Lyric-CDMA

Indoor Antenna
The antenna is not weatherproof, and must be installed indoors and mounted vertically while maintaining 12 inches
of clearance from large metal objects. Install the antenna as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Find a suitable location that will allow the antenna to be mounted vertically.
Remove power; refer to the radio communication module installation guide for Replacing the Module.
Connect the short adapter cable to the antenna cable.
Using wire cutters, remove the knock-out area as shown below.
Plug the end of the adapter cable into the module’s external antenna port and route the cable as shown.
Refer to the Cellular Information screen on the Lyric controller to make sure the displayed signal strength is
adequate. See the radio communication module installation guide for specific ranges.
