General Information

System Overview
Introduction
The LTEM-P Series Communicators utilize the latest
LTE technology specifically designed for loT device
s
to communicate with AlarmNet. The LTE CAT-M1 techno
logy provides improved power efficiency and
signal strength underground and within buildings. L
TE CAT-M1 is available everywhere that current LTE
networks reach with strong enough reception for con
sistent connections.
The LTEM-P Series Communicator, herein referred to
as the communicator, easily connects to your
security system's control panel and sends alarms an
d messages to AlarmNet for subsequent transfer to
the central monitoring station.
The LTEM-P Series includes the following models:

LTEM-PV (Verizon network)

LTEM-PA (AT&T
®
network)
The communicator supports the following optional pl
ug-in modules:

LTE CAT-1 Cell Radio Module for enhanced cellular
radio performance (model PROLTE series)

Wi-Fi/Z-Wave

Module for Wi-Fi
®
connection to the Internet and/or for control of h
ome automation
devices (model PROWIFIZW)

Dialer Capture Module for use with control panels
that send Contact ID signals via Dialer (model
PRODCM)
NOTES
:

The communicator requires an AlarmNet 360 account.
For new installations, please obtain
the account information from the central station pr
ior to programming this communicator. For
replacement installations, the AlarmNet 360 account
is created automatically when the
communicator is registered.


Due to Resideo's continuing effort to improve our
products, your device may look slightly
different than pictured.
General Information
The LTEM-P communicates via the Internet (when serv
ice is available) and switches to cell service when

the Internet is not available (provided the Communi
cation Path is set to IP & Cell).
Connection to the Internet is made by direct Ethern
et cable to the router, or via Wi-Fi
®
(requires use of the
optional Wi-Fi/Z-Wave module), together referred to
as IP. Only one of these methods may be used, not
both.
In normal operation (with Internet connectivity), t
he LTEM-P communicates from your customer's network

connection to the Resideo Network Operations Center
, (NOC) via the AlarmNet network. The NOC
receives data and routes the information to the Cen
tral Station of your choice, based on the account
number you assign to the communicator. Note that yo
ur Central Station needs to give you the account
number. The same account number is used for both I
nternet and cell transmissions. If your current
Central Station is capable of receiving signals fro
m the Resideo NOC, they are capable of receiving
signals from the communicator.
If, for some reason, Internet connectivity is not a
vailable, (for example, your customer's ISP is off
line or
disconnected) and the Communication Path choice is
set to IP & Cell, the communicator transmits signal
s
via the cellular network to complete these transmis
sions. These transmissions are sent to the Resideo

NOC and then forwarded to your Central Station the
same way as if they were received via the Internet.

If the Internet AND Cell network are both unavailab
le, the message will not be sent via this device.

About AlarmNet Internet Application
AlarmNet is a fully encrypted, secure method of del
ivering alarm messages from a protected premise to
an AlarmNet equipped central station. An Internet
Communicator transmits status, supervisory, and
alarm messages to the AlarmNet Control Center using
a broadband Internet connection.
The AlarmNet Control Center identifies, validates,
and forwards the messages to the appropriate
AlarmNet central station. AlarmNet has an unlimite
d account capacity.

Supervision Features
The communicator provides the following types of su
pervision and fault detection:


Network communication failure
: In the event the AlarmNet network does not hear a
supervisory
message from the communicator within a specified ti
me, AlarmNet notifies the central station of a
communication failure.


Communication path failure
: When the communication path is set to Ethernet &
Cell or Wi-Fi & Cell,
both the Central Station and the control panel can
be notified of a communication path failure. Both
failures are considered true faults when the respec
tive fault times have expired ("Cell Fault Time" an
d
"IP Fault Time" for either Wi-Fi or Ethernet option
s) provided it has been set to a non-zero value.
Notification is sent to the central station upon th
is expiration. Notification to the panel is contro
lled by
the "Notify Panel Of” option.
(
NOTE
: if the "Cell Fault Time" and "IP Fault Time" opti
ons are set to zero, faults will not be reported.)


Fault Trigger Output
: A fault trigger output (trigger output terminal T
1) activates upon the following
communicator fault conditions if alarm reporting is
enabled for the condition*: tamper, power loss, lo
w
battery, battery charger fault, and loss of network
connectivity (communication path loss). The fault
trigger output can serve as a fail-safe trigger (if
programmed to do so) to ensure the control panel i
s
alerted in the event of a complete communicator pow
er loss (no ac and no battery) or if the wiring fro
m
the communicator to the control panel is cut. Refer
to the "Fault Relay Normally On" option in the
Programming the Communicator
section for details.
*

Alarm reporting for the noted condition must be ena
bled for the condition to trigger the fault output.



Primary power loss
and
low battery
conditions (“Primary Power Loss Reporting,” “Low B
attery
Report” options).


Cover and wall tamper
condition (“Tamper Report” option).
Remote Services
Resideo offers a series of web-based services that
provides consumers with the ability to communicate
with their security system remotely in a number of
ways. These web services allow users to:

Access their security system from a computer via a
website (Remote Access feature)

Receive email and text message notifications of sy
stem events (Multi-Mode feature)
Dealers will initially enroll their customers for w
eb services during account programming through the
AlarmNet 360 website. The features that can be ena
bled include Remote Access and Multi-Mode. Once
enabled, the specific programming options associate
d with these features can be programmed into the
communications device using the AlarmNet 360 websit
e or mobile app.

The communicator connects to the control panel’s k
eypad terminals (Data In, Data Out, Ground) using
the included 3-wire harness connector, and provides
2-way communication with the control panel using
ECP messaging

The control panel treats the communicator as an EC
P device, so make sure to program the control
panel with the communicator’s device address

Reports are sent in Contact ID format.
Bus Connection

This connection is for use with compatible control
panels that do not support ECP communication

The communicator connects to the control panel via
RX/TX/GND terminal block connections

Reports are sent in Contact ID format.
Optional Accessories
The communicator supports various plug-in modules a
s follows.
LTE Communication Module (PROLTE-V, PROLTE-A)

If enhanced cell radio performance is required (ex
. higher bandwidth, greater data rate), install the

optional PROLTE Communication plug-in module.
Wi-Fi
®
/ Z-Wave Module (PROWIFIZW)
(not evaluated by UL)


If a Wi-Fi connection to the router is desired rat
her than an Ethernet cable connection, install the
optional PROWIFIZW module

The communicator can use only one Internet connect
ion method: Ethernet or Wi-Fi, not both

Wi-Fi module can also support the use of Z-Wave de
vices.
Dialer Capture Module (PRODCM)
(not evaluated by UL)


An optional Dialer Capture module can be used for
controls that send Contact ID alarm signals via the

control panel's dialer. The alarms are then sent to
AlarmNet for routing to the central monitoring sta
tion.
Antennas
The communicator is equipped with an internal anten
na. This feature provides additional security to th
e
installation by making the device tamper resistant.
If needed to obtain adequate signal strength, ther
e is a
connection for an external antenna.
The following antenna kits are compatible:

CELL-ANTHB

PROLTE-ANT

CELLANT3DBPK
NOTE
: If an external antenna is used, Adapter Cable ADP
T-LTEM-P
is also needed. See External Antenna section later
in this manual.

Testing the System
After installation the security system should be te
sted. Refer to the control panel installation inst
ructions
for procedures to test the entire system.


WEEKLY TESTING IS REQUIRED TO ENSURE PROPER OPERATI
ON OF THIS SYSTEM


Communications Test
After installation and programming, test the commun
ication path to AlarmNet by performing a
Communications Test.
To perform a Communications Test, press and release
the Test button. The communicator then sends a
test message to AlarmNet via the primary communicat
ion path, which can be viewed via AlarmNet 360 to
confirm that the message was successfully received.
The Alarm History page shows Contact ID code
E601 (manually triggered test) along with the zone
number for the communicator. The communication
path is also identified ("ethernet" [if Wi-Fi or et
hernet is selected] or "cellular" depending on the
communication path programmed).

Mounting and Wiring

Installation Notes


The communicator must be installed in accordance w
ith the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA 70.

The communicator must be mounted indoors within th
e protected premises.

Do not install in air-handling spaces.

Do not mount the communicator on or near metal obj
ects, as this may affect radio
communication. It is also good practice to avoid lo
cating the communicator near wiring
such as AC, telephone, HVAC, computer data cables,
etc.

Unshielded, 22 AWG cable is recommended for the co
mmunicator power/data wires.

Do not connect to a receptacle controlled by a swi
tch.
Determining the Signal Strength to Select a Locatio
n
When choosing a suitable mounting location, underst
and that signal strength is very important for prop
er
operation. For most installations using the intern
al antenna, mounting the unit as high as practical,
and
avoiding large metal components provides adequate s
ignal strength for proper operation.
You will use the communicator to determine signal s
trength in order to find a suitable mounting locati
on.
LTEM-P Initial Power Up
: Upon initial power up, the communicator LEDs blin
k in repeated sequence
from top to bottom indicating network initializatio
n.
Green (REG)



Yellow (STATUS)



Red (FAULT)



Green (CELL)



Green (WIFI)
This sequence may take up to 15 minutes.
Do not reset power during this time.

When initialization is complete, the LEDs may blink
(per their respective functions).
After initial network setup, subsequent resets or p
ower ups can take up to 90 seconds.

1. Unpack the communicator and open the case by pus
hing in the two bottom tabs with a screwdriver
while separating the front case.
2. Temporarily connect the power adapter and the ba
ttery to the communicator. When initial power up is

complete, you can remove the power adapter and use
the communicator on battery power to find a
suitable mounting location.
3. Choose the installation site with the best signa
l quality by observing the Cell LED; it should be l
it
solid. The best signal strength is usually found at
the highest point in the building, near a window.

4. Mark the location for the communicator.

Wiring the Communicator
Wiring for VISTA Series ECP Control Panels
Most Resideo VISTA control panels support ECP data
communication with communicators, (e.g., VISTA-
15P, VISTA-20P, VISTA-128BPT and VISTA-128FBPT). H
owever, there are some panels that do not.
Check the
Installation and Setup Guide
for the control panel you are using to see if it s
upports
communication device (LRR) to ECP communication.
Programming Note
: Make sure to program the control panel with the c
ommunicator’s device address.
1. Connect the control panel's ECP (keypad)
Data In
,
Data Out
, and
Ground
terminals to the
communicator's ECP connector using the included 3-w
ire harness (Resideo part R600-00155). Note
that the 12VDC output from the control panel is NOT
used with this connector. See ECP Option 1
diagram below.

Alternatively, connect the VISTA control panel's E
CP (keypad) terminals directly to the
communicator's
RX
,
TX
, and
GND
terminals as shown in the ECP Option 2 diagram bel
ow.
2. Connect the power adapter wires to the communica
tor's
PWR

3. Secure the wiring with cable ties as necessary.
Cable tie anchor points are provided on the back ca
se
below the terminal block.

For UL Listed installations, the communicator must
be powered by the provided 9VDC
Power Adapter only. Powering the communicator from
another source may cause
unexpected results, including reduced battery backu
p time, as well as making the
installation non-UL Listed.
Wire length/gauge limitations are the same for the
communicator as they are for keypads and other
peripheral devices connected to the VISTA control p
anel.

esideo brand control panels.
The following steps show typical connections and pr
ocedures.
1. If required, connect the communicator's
RX
,
TX
, and
GND
terminals to the appropriate terminals at
the control panel according the control panel's ins
tructions. See diagram below.
2. If required, install the PRODCM Dialer Capture m
odule and connect its terminals to the control
panel's telco Ring (R) and Tip (T) terminals respec
tively.
3. Connect the power adapter wires to the communica
tor's
PWR
+
and
GND
terminals as shown.
Observe polarity.
4. Secure the wiring with cable ties as necessary.
Cable tie anchor points are provided on the back ca
se
below the terminal block.
5. Refer to the control panel's installation manual
for details on programming the control panel. When

completed, make sure the control panel is in the "R
eady to Arm" state with no alarms or faults present
.
6. Reboot/power up the communicator then connect th
e battery.

For UL Listed installations, the communicator must
be powered by the provided 9VDC Power
Adapter only. Powering the communicator from anothe
r source may cause unexpected results,
including reduced battery backup time, as well as m
aking the installation non-UL Listed.


After any programming changes are made to non-VISTA
control panels, the communicator
must be reset/rebooted (press and hold the Test swi
tch for 10 seconds).


If using the communicator's Fault Trigger Output, m
ake sure a common ground connection is
made between the communicator's GND (terminal 3) an
d the control panel's Aux NEG (–) or
any common zone ground. See the
Wiring the Fault Trigger Output
section for more
information regarding the Fault Trigger Output.

Check the control panel's instructions for wire len
gth/gauge limitations and refer to the
ECP & BUS
Connection Maximum Wire Lengths
table in the previous section. If the tables diffe
r in respective wire
lengths, use the shorter length.

Supervision Fault (Panel Sync Failure) Indication
: If a panel sync failure occurs during the communi
cator reboot/power up
after installation with a non-Resideo control panel
, the communicator LEDs will continue to blink from
top to bottom in the boot up
marching sequence for up to 10 minutes. During this
time, the installer should determine and correct t
he cause of the sync failure
(clear panel alarms, faults, and troubles; disarm t
he control; clear alarm memory, etc.). If the sync
failure is corrected within the
10-minute period, the LEDs enter normal operation m
ode. However, if the sync failure persists after th
e 10-minute period, the
LEDs enter normal mode, but a supervision fault mes
sage is sent.

Wiring the F
a
ult Trigger Output
The communicator's fault trigger output (Trigger Ou
tput terminal T1) can be wired and programmed for
fail-safe mode (see the program option "FAULT RELAY
NORMALLY ON").
Use of the Fault Trigger Output requires a common g
round* between the communicator and the control
panel. Control panels connecting to the communicato
r's ECP or bus terminals typically include a common

ground connection. However, if using a control pane
l that connects only to the communicator's PRODCM
Dialer Capture module (see Dialer Capture Module se
ction later in this manual), a common ground
connection must also be made. See step 3.
*
PC board ground, not earth ground
To sense a communicator fault at the control panel,
do the following and see the diagram below.
1. Connect the communicator's Trigger Output
T1
to a zone "
+
" input at the control panel. (Trigger
terminal T2 is not used.)
2. Install the proper end-of-line (EOL) resistor re
quired by the control panel.
3. If the Fault Trigger Output is used with a contr
ol panel connected to the PRODCM Dialer Capture
module, make sure to also connect the communicator'
s GND (terminal 3) to the control panel's Aux
NEG (–) or any common zone ground.
4. Set the trigger for Fail-Safe mode by selecting
the FAULT RELAY NORMALLY ON program option
checkbox via AlarmNet 360.

Backup Battery
The included battery is used for backup in the even
t of power loss to the communicator. It does not
provide power to the control panel.
Battery Notes


The unit must be powered up before connecting the b
attery.

The battery can provide over 24 hours of system li
fe in the event of a power failure.

A programmable power loss message can alert the Al
armNet Control Center when system power is lost
(power loss messages are reported within 1-3 hours
of actual loss).

The communicator transmits a low-battery message (
programmable) when the battery reaches 3.8V ±5%,
indicating subsequent messages may not be transmitt
ed.

The system shuts down when the battery falls below
3.3V, and radio transmissions are no longer possib
le.
If system power is restored before the communicator
shuts down, a power restore message is sent within
1-3
hours after power is restored, and the battery is r
echarged using the communicator’s built-in battery
charger.
If system power is restored after the communicator
has shut down, a power-on reset condition exists, t
he
communicator initializes itself and the battery wil
l recharge.

Install the battery as follows:


Do not plug the battery in until

Dialer Capture Module
(not evaluated by UL)

An optional Dialer Capture module (PRODCM) can be u
sed for control panels that send Contact ID alarm
signals via the control panel's dialer but do not c
onnect via ECP or bus terminals. The Dialer Capture

module replaces the phone line and simulates the ph
one service to the control panel. The alarms are
then sent to AlarmNet for routing to the central mo
nitoring station.
1. Power down the communicator and disconnect the b
attery.
2. Install the Dialer Capture module by mating the
module's connector to the edge connector on the
upper right side of the communicator's PCB. Make su
re the module is fully seated in the connector.
Slip the module board under the snap tab to lock it
in place as shown below.
3. Connect the control panel's Telco Ring (R) and T
ip (T) terminals individually to the terminals on t
he
Dialer Capture module (module terminals have no Rin
g/Tip polarity). See diagram below.
4. If using the communicator's Fault Trigger Output
(see
Wiring the Fault Trigger Output
section), make
sure a common ground connection is made between the
communicator's GND (terminal 3) and the
control panel's Aux NEG (–) or any common zone grou
nd.
5. After installation, power up the communicator th
en reconnect the battery.


Dialer Capture Module Connections



Do not connect the outside phone line to either the
Dialer Capture module or the control
panel. There should be no connection to the outside
phone line when using the Dialer
Capture module.
For replacement installations, make sure to disconn
ect the outside phone line when using
the Dialer Capture module with the communicator.

Control Panel Programming Notes for Dialer Capture
After the Dialer Capture module has been installed,
make sure the control panel is programmed for the
following:

Dialer operation is set for DTMF Tone Dialing for
each phone number (pulse dialing is not supported
and must be disabled in the control panel).

PABX field is disabled (the Dialer Capture module
does not communicate through a PABX).

Phone numbers and account numbers are programmed (
to ensure the maximum number of messages
can be transmitted to the central station before a
communication failure occurs, ensure the control
panel is programmed with a primary and secondary ce
ntral station number).

Report format is set to Contact ID for each phone
number.

The maximum number of retry attempts is programmed
.

Desired zone and partition reports are enabled.


Section 3: Programming the Communicator


19
Additional Notes When Using the Dialer Capture Modu
le

The Dialer Capture module supports only one-way co
mmunications (from the control panel to the
central station). For those control panels that sup
port two-way voice communications, speakerphone,
paging, follow-me, etc., these features will no lon
ger be available. The control panel must be
programmed for one-way communications only.

Since Dialer Capture module supports only one-way
communications (from the control panel to the
central station), the Resideo Compass Downloader ca
nnot be used.

In the event the communicator loses power, the mod
ule would not be able to generate a fault trigger t
o
the control panel and set an alarm. In this case, a
fter the panel has exhausted its redial attempts, a

communication failure is displayed by the panel (yo
u may have to scroll through the messages).

The Dialer Capture module cannot sense a fault on
the Tip/Ring side. However, during an alarm, if the

module cannot forward the alarm, it will trigger a
fault and disable the phone line. The phone line wi
ll be
re-enabled after communication has been re-establis
hed.

If the Dialer Capture module senses a fault, it wi
ll send a Trigger signal to the control panel zone
(if
wired to a zone). At this point the module will als
o drop the phone line voltage and will not provide
a dial
tone to the control panel. During this time, the co
ntrol panel will make retry attempts (8 for residen
tial,
and more for commercial) to dial out and send a rep
ort. Until the control panel has completed the seri
es
of retry attempts it will not be able to detect a T
elco fault. To minimize the wait time, for control
panels
that allow setting the Telco Fault detection time,
please set it to the minimum detection time.

For control panels that may generate erroneous Tel
co fault conditions based on grounding, turn off
"Telco Fault" monitoring at the control panel.


If the dialer capture module receives a communicati
on path failure from the communicator, the module
will drop the voltage and thereby disable the phone
line. If Telco Fault is enabled in the panel, the

keypad on the system will display the fault. When t
he dialer capture module receives a fault clear
condition, the module will re-enable the phone line
. The panel is notified of all other faults if the
fault
output of the communicator is wired to a zone on th
e panel.

FIXED SETTINGS
(the following options are factory set and not prog
rammable)

Cell Rollover

ON

Cell Rollover is factory-set to ON and cannot be ch
anged.
All messages (including AlarmNet network supervisor
y messages) are sent over the
cell network in the event of an Internet failure.
Power Save

ON

The Power Save feature is factory-set to ON and can
not be changed.
This feature allows the LTEM-P to meet the 24-hour
UL battery backup requirement.
IP Connection

Auto Detect

IP Connection is factory-set to Auto-Detect and can
not be changed.
In Auto Detect mode, the device will always try to
use IP* to communicate but it will not
generate a Primary Comm Path Failure unless it prev
iously detected the presence of
IP. As soon as the presence of IP is detected, a P
rimary Comm Path Restore
message is generated and the value of IP Connectivi
ty programming parameter is
changed from “Auto Detect” to “Detected”.
From this point on, the software expects connectivi
ty. The auto detect logic will
resume only when the parameter is changed back to “
Auto Detect”.

Ethernet or Wi-Fi, depending on option selected in
Comm Path choice.

ECP Status Codes
When the communicator is configured for ECP usage,
it sends status messages to the control panel for
battery, power, tamper, and network connectivity fa
ilures. Some of the control panels (e.g., VISTA-10
P,
VISTA-15P and VISTA-20P Series) display these on th
e keypad as “LngRng Radio” followed by a 4-digit
code (listed in the table below). In addition, the
Contact ID codes (listed in Appendix B) for these
conditions are sent to the central station by the c
ommunicator.
