Will a Honeywell L7000 work w/o an Internet Connection?

Just like it's predecessor the L5100, and its contemporaneous little brother the L5200, the L7000 can be used without an internet communicator. While internet is the most popular communication pathway for the L7000 which can be connected wirelessly to the internet using the L5100-WIFI or using an ethernet cable if an iLP5 communicator is installed, the L7000 does not support plain old phone line communication unlike all the many security systems that came before it. There is NO phone line connection built into the unit. While the L5200 can communicate over phone, the L7000 does not have the capabilities.

Cellular communication, which does not use the internet, requires the purchase of a wireless cellular communicator. While the L5200 and the older L5100 can use the older Honeywell GSMVLP5-4G communicator, the L7000 requires the Honeywell 4GL to communicate over the cellular network. These cellular communicators use the AT&T network to send signals.

Yes, all Honeywell communicators ship with the SIM card that must be used with the communicator. Whichever company you choose to sign up with for monitoring will activate the SIM and will pay Honeywell/AlarmNet for the data charges on the SIM card.
Thanks for the reply; is that even if I don't buy the security system from Alarm Grid? How would be able to receive this AT&T SIM card?
All Honeywell cellular communicators come with an AT&T SIM card which we would activate once you sign up for monitoring. You don't need to do anything with your personal cell phone provider to get cellular monitoring.
What if I don't have AT&T? Is the GSMVLP-5G compatible with a Verizon simm card.
The L5200 still has the phone line connection and it's almost the exact same panel - just everything is a little bit smaller. The truth is, almost no one has a usable copper line in their home anymore. I think the move was probably viewed as one of modernization. But as with any changes, not everyone will agree.
It is major step back without phone line. Not sure why Honeywell removed it.
You're absolutely correct Tony. Thanks for finding the error in the FAQ. It has been corrected.
L7000 panel does NOT support phone line, there is NO phone connectors on the board, even the installation manual confirms that. Could you check?
