If you need to boost cellular signal strength for a DSC PowerSeries NEO LTE Communicator, then the DSC LTE-15ANT is a great option. The LTE-15ANT is a 15-foot cellular antenna designed to boost cell signals for DSC Alarm Systems used in remote areas located far away from cellular towers.
The DSC LTE-15ANT works with the DSC PowerSeries NEO LTE Communicators, including the DSC TL880LEAT N, the DSC TL880LTVZ N, and the earlier "non-N" LTE models as well. It can also be used with a selection of LTE radios for other DSC Security Systems including the original PowerSeries, DSC Alexor, and DSC Impassa.
Although most users in the United States can get by just fine without an added cellular antenna, users in certain areas may need the extra boost in signal strength to achieve an adequate signal. Your alarm monitoring company will be able to perform a complete signal strength test to let you know if one is needed. You might also try positioning the existing stock antenna as high up as possible and far away from large metal objects to try and increase the signal. But if you find that it doesn't do the trick, then the LTE-15ANT may be a great option. This antenna can be used indoors or outdoors as needed.
Please note that this outdoor cellular antenna is also available in a 25-foot length (DSC LTE-25ANT) and a 50-foot length (DSC LTE-50ANT). You can also mount it outside of the panel's metal enclosure. Make sure to mount the antenna properly in order to achieve the strongest possible boost in cellular signals for your alarm system.
