The Alarm.com NX-411-US-AT AT&T LTE and IP Dual-Path Communicator provides connectivity for a compatible Interlogix NetworX Panel. The module allows a compatible panel to connect with the Alarm.com Servers for monitoring service. It works with the NetworX 4V2, 6V2, 8V2, or 8E Systems.
Being able to utilize two (2) distinct communication paths is ideal for any security system. This is because the system will have a second communication path available in case one goes down or becomes unavailable. When the system needs to communicate out to Alarm.com, it will send out signals across both IP and the AT&T LTE Cellular Network. As long as one signal reaches the intended destination, the command will go through as intended. The other signal will be automatically discarded to prevent the command from being submitted twice.
In most cases, the Alarm.com NX-411-US-AT will utilize IP connectivity as its primary communication path. This is because IP is still a little bit faster than cellular LTE. The NX-411-US-AT gets its IP service from a wired ethernet connection that you plug into the module. If the internet goes down, then the communicator will still be able to rely on its connection with the AT&T LTE Network. Please note that Alarm.com requires the communicator to be activated for cellular service. In other words, you cannot use the NX-411-US-AT for IP-only connectivity. This means that you will need a monitoring plan that includes cellular service, such as the Alarm Grid Gold Plan.
Once the communicator is activated, you will be able to control your NetworX Alarm Panel through the Alarm.com platform, assuming that interactive monitoring is included in your plan. By accessing Alarm.com, you can arm and disarm your system, check its current status, control Z-Wave devices, and more. Speaking of Z-Wave devices, the NX-411-US-AT serves as a fully functional Z-Wave Plus controller so that you can start pairing a full set of Z-Wave smart home devices. You can also build smart scenes to have your Z-Wave devices activate automatically based on a set schedule or with certain system events.
