- Activate the GC3. Before the GC3 security panel can be activated, it will need to be powered up and have a cellular communicator installed. Once the GC3 system is on a cellular network, the alarm monitoring company will be able to remotely activate the device with Alarm.com using the serial number provided from the device.
- Login to Alarm.com. After your account activation is complete, the alarm monitoring company will send you an automated email, telling your the username, and allowing you to set up a password used to log into Alarm.com. It is recommended that you go through the initial account setup process using a desktop or laptop computer.
Download and login to the Alarm.com app. After you have setup your username and password, download the Alarm.com app on the iPad. Make sure that the iPad is connected to the internet. The app is available for free in the app store, and it is simply called "Alarm.com". After installing, launch the app and enter your login credentials.
