Do I need an internet connection to use use the L5100?

The L5100 does not require an internet connection although it does function very well as an internet security system .

While the IP mode of communication is the most popular method, by far, the L5100 can use a traditional phone line by installing an iLP5 module to communicate with Total Connect or a GSM module can be added to the unit.

Each of these modes of communication comes with different benefits. With the L5100-WIFI, which is the L5100s WIFI communication device, an installer is dependent on the effectiveness of their in-house internet. While the up-time on most individual's internet connections is extremely high, for some people it proves to be less reliable. For those that have poor internet connections and for those who simply want the added protection provided by redundant communication pathways the GSM communicator will make a great addition to the unit turning it into a cellular security system.
