Is the Honeywell Home PROSIXC2W an LTE Communicator?
No, the Honeywell Home PROSIXC2W is not an LTE communicator. The PROSIXC2W is a wired to wireless converter designed for use with the Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS Alarm System. The module allows you to interface hardwired sensors with the security system that would otherwise be incompatible.
In the world of security systems, an LTE communicator is a type of alarm monitoring communicator, more specifically a cellular communicator, that allows the connected system to communicate with a monitoring platform, such as Resideo's AlarmNet, across an LTE cellular network. The exact LTE cellular network depends on the communicator. Some of the most popular LTE networks used by devices such as security systems, mobile phones, and other cellular devices, include the AT&T LTE Network and the Verizon LTE Network. In order for an LTE communicator for an alarm system to work, it must be installed on a compatible alarm panel, and it must be activated for alarm monitoring service. This will require a compatible cellular alarm monitoring plan, such as an Alarm Grid Gold Plan or an Alarm Grid Platinum Plan.
But the Honeywell Home PROSIXC2W is not an LTE communicator in any shape or form. In fact, it's not even an alarm monitoring communicator at all. Rather, the PROSIXC2W is a wired to wireless converter. Hardwired sensors connect with the PROSIXC2W at one of eight (8) available zones. The PROSIXC2W then sends wireless signals to a compatible PROA7PLUS Alarm Panel so that the connected sensors can interface with the system as though they were compatible wireless sensors. The reason why you may want a PROSIXC2W is if you have upgraded to a PROA7PLUS System from an older hardwired system, and you wanted to find a way to integrate your existing wired devices with your new wireless system so that you can save money by not needing to purchase all new wireless sensors.
If you are looking for an LTE communicator for a Honeywell PROA7PLUS System, then you have a couple of options available. These are the Honeywell Home PROLTE-A AT&T LTE Communicator and the Honeywell Home PROLTE-V Verizon LTE Communicator. Both are AlarmNet Communicators, meaning that these devices will allow the PROA7PLUS System to communicate with the Resideo AlarmNet Servers once they have been activated for alarm monitoring service. The AlarmNet Servers will convey alarm signals to any compatible central monitoring station, such as those used by Alarm Grid. This will also allow the system to be used with the super convenient and handy Total Connect 2.0 platform. Remember that since the Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS System already has a Honeywell Home PROWIFIZW WIFI Communicator and Z-Wave Plus Controller built inside, adding an LTE cellular communicator like the PROLTE-A or PROLTE-V is technically optional for alarm monitoring service. However, many users prefer to "upgrade to cellular" so that way their PROA7PLUS Systems offer both IP (WIFI) and cellular connectivity for alarm monitoring. This will help ensure that their systems remain monitored and protected even if an internet outage occurs. Whenever the internet goes down, the panel will still be able to communicate using its LTE cellular communicator.
