The 2GIG GC3GA-T is an AT&T (HSPA) Cellular Communicator. It is designed to report alarm signals via the AT&T 3G network to the Telguard server. The Go!Control panel must have firmware revision 1.10.1 or higher in order to support the 3G communications. Telguard is a third party server host that offers a universal cellular platform for alarm reporting to a central station and/or Telguard interactive services. This is a completely different platform than Alarm.com.
There is an included AT&T SIM card which can be activated (if not pre-activated) and registered on the Telguard server by your alarm company. This module supports state of the art firmware updates for the Go!Control panel without any other local hardware required. For central station monitoring, the GC3GA-T will report any configured alarm events to a central station for emergency dispatching of the local authorities.
Just like the other 2GIG cellular radios there are two screws with two locking washers designed to hold the unit in place inside the control panel. The installation is simple and can be seen in detail in the installation guide. There is an included cellular antenna which can be used to acquire a better signal from the AT&T cellular towers. The included 2GIG ANT3X is an in-wall antenna that has a 10 inch cable. If you require a longer cable for better reception in a higher point on the premise you can purchase the 2GIG ANT2X separately. The ANT2X has a 10 foot cable and is designed to be placed in an attic space.
After the snap-in module is installed it is recommended that the cellular signal is tested before moving forward with monitoring. Go into the Installer Toolbox by pressing the logo on the lower right of the keypad. Enter your installer code and click the 'Radio Status' icon. The minimum signal requirement is 7 out of 31 (7/31) or higher. If the signal is below this reading you will need to relocate the panel somewhere higher in the home or closer to an exterior wall.
