What Does A 3GA-A-GC3 Communicator Do For A 2GIG GC3?
Once installed and connected to the GC3 panel, a 2GIG dealer needs to register and activate the 3GA-A-GC3 cellular radio.
When the 2GIG GC3 alarm system is armed and paired with an activated 3GA-A-GC3, and a protected area’s device is triggered, the the device will send a signal to the panel and the 3GA-A-GC3 will wirelessly transmit the signal / signals to a central monitoring station and or Alarm.com.
If a user is connected to central station monitoring and alarm signals are received trained operators will contact authorities, if needed. If a user is connected with an Alarm.com account only, the user will receive notifications via email and or text message and it is up to the user to contact authorities, if needed.
Cellular radio communicators are a very safe path of communication. They are wireless and therefore have no wires that can be cut.
The 2GIG GC3 control panel does have a built in internet communicator but at this time 2GIG does not support internet or WIFI monitoring as a path of communication.
In addition to being a communicator for the GC3 control panel, the 3GA-A-GC3 cellular radio communicator allows users to receive firmware updates remotely over the air.
The 3GA-A-GC3 comes with its own sim card and only authorized dealers for Alarm.com can register and activate the 2GA-A-GC3.
In addition to the 3GA-A-GC3’s AT&T cellular communicator there is also the compatible Verizon CDMA cellular communicator, 2GIG CDMAV-A-GC3 and for Canada, Rogers cellular communicator, 2GIG 3GR-A-GC3.
