How Does the 3GL GSM Work in a Honeywell L7000?

The Honeywell 3GL cellular communicator inserts directly inside the Lynx Touch L7000 control panel.

The 3GL cell communicator is shipped with its own sim card, the cellular carrier is AT&T (this is the only sim card that can be used). Only a Honeywell dealer can register and activate the 3GL cellular communicator. The dealer registers and activates the 3GL using the MAC ID and CRC numbers provided by the user. The MAC ID and CRC numbers can be found on the side of the box the communicator was shipped in and on the 3GL communicator itself.

The Honeywell 3GL can communicate any alarm signal received by the Honeywell Lynx Touch L7000 to a central monitoring station and Total Connect 2.0.

Once the 3GL cellular communicator is activated, and a security device programmed into the Honeywell L7000 is triggered, it sends a signal to the L7000 control panel. The 3GL cellular communicator transmits the signal to AlarmNet servers which, if enabled, send the signals to a central monitoring station, and/or Total Connect 2.0.

Once a signal is received by a central monitoring station, a trained operator will contact the user to confirm a false alarm or contact authorities if needed. Unless a Duress signal or Panic alarm signal is received, then authorities will be contacted immediately without confirmation.

When signals are received via Total Connect 2.0, users will receive notifications by email and or text message, when enabled, on any alarm signal and event.. There is no limit as to how many email addresses and phone numbers can receive text messages in Total Connect 2.0.

Total Connect 2.0 can only communicate with Honeywell Cellular, Internet, and WIFI communicators.

Total Connect 2.0 allows users to remotely control a Honeywell alarm system, home automation and video surveillance from any computer, smart phone and/or iOS device. The options available, depend on the plan selected.
