The 2GIG LTEA-A-GC3 Alarm.com AT&T LTE Cellular Communicator offers fast and reliable connectivity for the 2GIG GC3. Cellular connectivity is extremely consistent and a great way to monitor a panel. This is a cellular communicator, which is needed for connecting the panel with Alarm.com.
With a security system, you want to make sure that it is monitored at all times. If a break-in or fire occurs, then you want to be completely sure that your panel can successfully send out signals. Cellular communication is excellent in this regard. A strong cellular connection will almost never go down or become unavailable. It will also keep the panel monitored during typical power outages. The same cannot usually be said for IP service, which may occasionally go down or become unavailable.
The LTEA-A-GC3 is also used for connecting the GC3 Panel with Alarm.com. This is an interactive monitoring and automation platform that offers some fantastic features. By accessing Alarm.com, you can arm/disarm, check system status, control Z-Wave devices, and more. You can conveniently access this service using the Alarm.com website or mobile app. Just remember that you need a compatible monitoring plan to activate the communicator.
The AT&T LTE Network is very fast and consistent, which is perfect for alarm monitoring service. The term "LTE" refers to Long-Term Evolution. Cellular service providers like AT&T have invested tremendous amounts of money into their LTE networks, and they plan to support them well into the very distant future. With an LTE Communicator, you can keep your system monitored for a very, very long time.
