Does the L5000's GSMVLP5 require a cellular SIM card?
The Honeywell GSMVLP5 is an AlarmNet cellular alarm monitoring communicator. Each new GSVMLP5 comes equipped with the cellular SIM card required for the cellular alarm communicators. However, the included SIM card can only be activated by an AlarmNet dealer. AlarmNet does not offer its suite of alternative alarm monitoring communication services to the general public. You must contract with an AlarmNet alarm monitoring provider which will in turn activate the SIM card inside of your GSMVLP5 cellular communicator. Without signing up with an AlarmNet dealer, you won't be able to use the GSMVLP5 with your L5000 LYNX Touch wireless alarm control panel. You will also not be able to utilize AlarmNet's advanced Total Connect service. The GSMVLP5 cellular alarm monitoring communicator is essentially useless without an AlarmNet alarm monitoring plan.
