Can the Honeywell CELL-ANT3DB Work With LTE Communicators?
Yes, the Honeywell CELL-ANT3DB will work with LTE communicators. The cellular antenna will boost the signal strength for the LTE communicators for the Lyric, LYNX Touch, and VISTA Series Panels. These include the LYRICLTE-A, LYRICLTE-V, LTE-L57A, LTE-L57V, LTE-XA, LTE-XV, LTE-IA, and LTE-IV.
When using a cellular communicator, it is very important that you have adequate signal strength. If you are using your security system a very far distance from any cell tower, then it is likely that you may have trouble achieving a strong signal. One way that you can boost the cellular signal strength for your system is to use a cellular antenna. This device will connect with your system's cellular communicator and boost its power. This will make it easier for the system to maintain a strong connection with the cellular network.
The Honeywell CELL-ANT3DB provides an average signal boost of 3dB. This is great for people living in rural areas, and any users who have their systems in locations with poor cellular reception. Originally, this antenna was called the GSM-ANT3DB. This is because it was built for older GSM and CDMA networks. However, this antenna will still support the newer LTE networks. This makes it still viable for use today. In order to avoid confusion, Honeywell eventually changed its name to the CELL-ANT3DB. Remember, this antenna is only for AlarmNet Panels that are compatible with the Total Connect 2.0 service.
Please note that you may need a variety of different cables and adapters to connect the CELL-ANT3DB to your system's communicator. We offer convenient kits that include everything you need. You can buy a 25-foot kit called the Honeywell CELL3DB25KT, or a 50-foot kit called the Honeywell CELL3DB50KT. Both kits work great for anyone looking to boost the signal strength for an LTE communicator.
Alternatively, you might consider getting a cellular amplifier to boost the signal strength for a variety of different cellular devices in your home or business. With the right cellular amplifier, you can boost the signal strength for your security system, plus your smartphone when it is used in the building.
