For any DSC PowerSeries Neo owner, it is very important to obtain a reliable communicator that will allow their system to receive consistent monitoring services. This can be done using the DSC PowerSeries Neo Alarm.com AT&T LTE Dual Path Communicator for ethernet and cellular connectivity.
A dual-path communicator facilitates both IP and cellular monitoring for an alarm system. If one communication path is ever down or unavailable, then the system will still have the other path available. In most cases, the system will rely on IP (ethernet) connectivity for communicating with Alarm.com. This is because IP monitoring is typically faster than cellular connectivity. But IP is also more likely to do down than cellular connectivity. As a result, having cellular backup for the panel is very important.
In this case, the communicator will connect with the AT&T LTE Cellular Network. This LTE network will provide fast speeds and reliable connectivity whenever internet service is unavailable. AT&T has stated that they plan to support their LTE network well into the very distant future. So by going with this communicator, a user will be able to keep their DSC PowerSeries Neo System monitored for many years. And they will experience great peace of mind with its dual-path connection.
Another benefit of this communicator is that it will allow the system to connect with the Alarm.com interactive service. A user can access the Alarm.com platform at any time to perform various functions with their security system. These functions include arming and disarming, checking the current status of sensors, controlling Z-Wave smart home devices and more. The Alarm.com service can be accessed from a web browser or remotely using the Alarm.com Mobile App. Please note that this communicator doubles as a Z-Wave Plus controller once it is activated.
Note: This communicator is compatible with Neo HS2016/ HS2032/HS2064/ HS2128 V1.1+ Security Panels. If you are looking for a Verizon LTE Communicator, it is available here.
Note: The DSC PCL-422 Remote Mounting Module is needed for connecting the communicator to the panel. This module comes included with the communicator.
