Honeywell GSMV4G vs 7847i

The HoneywellGSMV4G is a gsm cellular communicator that supports Honeywell Vista series control panels.

The GSMV4G cellular communicator connects to the control panel and sends alarm signals to AlarmNet for subsequent transfer to a central monitoring station. The GSMV4G cell unit can be mounted directly on the control panel or remotely.

The new 4G connectivity brings faster GSM data transfers with lower response time, which results in faster data transfers.

If the GSMV4G cellular network is unavailable, the GSMV4G will

attempt to send a transmission via SMS (Short Message Service) also known as a text message as backup communication.

The GSMV4G comes with it’s own battery backup, so if power is lost, the cellular unit will not depend on the control panel’s battery making run time that much longer.

The basic features of the GSMV4G are reports fire, burg, and status messages via GSM. The GSMV4G has an internal antenna which provides additional security.

The GSMV4G can be programmed using the 7720P programming tool or via the AlarmNet Direct website. Sends reports in Contact ID format. Supports remote control of alarm system via Remote Services feature. Allows uploading and downloading of control panel data via GSM.

The 7847i is an internet communicator which transports alarm signals via the internet to Honeywell’s AlarmNet central stations. AlarmNet routes the signals to a central monitoring station.

The 7847i provides upload / downloading capability over the internet.

The 7847i has a base T connection for easy connection to a hub or router and install behind firewalls without compromising network security.

The 7847i also provides the capability of connecting to Total Connect 2.0 remote services.

The 7847i supports dynamic or static IP addressing.

The 7847i does have it’s own battery backup but an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or battery backup for your modem and router is recommended. If internet service is interrupted during a power outage and a power supply is not installed, signals being sent will fail for no internet available.
