Honeywell GSMX4G VS 7847i
The GSMX4G is a cellular communicator which transmits signals to Honeywell's AlarmNet control center via a gsm cellular network. AlarmNet routes signals received to a central monitoring station.
The GSMX4G is backwards compatible with 2G and 3G service. This feature is known as IntelliPath and allows the communicator to choose the fastest available cellular service offered in the area.
The GSMX4G provides full contact ID reporting using ECP mode with a Vista control panel. The primary communication is on 4G.
Users can upload / download Honeywell control panels via ECP only.
The GSMX4G provides the capability of connecting to Total Connect 2.0 remote services.
The GSMX4G is powered directly off the alarm control panel and no transformer is required.
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 CAT-5 10 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.
Both the GSMX4G and 7847i are supervised and users should be notified by their alarm monitoring services provider in the event of loss of communication.
