The 2GIG LTEV1-A-GC2 is the Verizon LTE Cellular Communicator for the 2GIG GC2 and 2GIG GC2e. This radio will allow the GC2 or GC2e to access the Verizon LTE Cellular Network for connectivity with the Alarm.com servers. This is very important for ensuring reliable monitoring service and remote functionality.
Cellular communication is extremely important for alarm systems. It is the most reliable communication path available, and the Verizon LTE Network offers speeds that are nearly on par with WIFI. It is almost unheard of for cellular service to go down suddenly, and cellular communication is not affected by power outages. The same cannot be said for WIFI, which is lost when the electricity goes out and will sometimes become unavailable for seemingly no reason.
By choosing the LTEV1-A-GC2, a GC2 or GC2e will be able to maintain a strong and dependable cellular connection with the Verizon LTE network for many, many years into the future. Verizon has promised to continue to support its LTE network for many years to come. With this module, you are "future-proofing" your system, and you will not have to worry about replacing its cellular radio later on. Instead, your 2GIG GC2 or GC2e will continue to receive cellular monitoring service and remain connected with Alarm.com, even as cellular networks continue to evolve and progress.
The GC2 Verizon LTE Cellular Communicator is easy to install, and its fast speeds mean that home automation devices will respond quicker when receiving commands from Alarm.com. Included with the device are two (2) LTE antennas for maximum signal strength. Please note that the 2GIG GC2 or GC2e System must be running firmware version 1.19 or higher to support the communicator. We have pages for GC2 Firmware and GC2e Firmware. The unit will only work in the United States with the Verizon LTE network. An alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular connectivity is required.
