The Honeywell GSM-ANT3DB is an AlarmNet remote weatherproof GSM antenna with an average gain of 3dBi that is compatible with certain AlarmNet cellular alarm monitoring communicators and dual path alarm monitoring communicators. Unlike the AlarmNet GSM-ANT remote indoor antenna, which only allows you to change the point of reception but does not increase the actual cellular signal strength of your AlarmNet cellular alarm monitoring communicator, the GSM-ANT3DB actually triples the cellular signal strength of your AlarmNet communicator.
The GSM-ANT3DB includes the weatherproof 3dB gain outdoor GSM antenna and the K14207LF MMCX-SMA adapter cable needed to connect the remote GSM antenna to the cellular alarm monitoring communicator’s internal antenna board. The 7670F mounting bracket used to securely mount the GSM-ANT3DB antenna is also included. You will need to purchase separately a WA7626-CA SMA-N RF adapter cable and a RF antenna coax cable which comes in various lengths (5/25/50’) to connect the GSM antenna to the cellular alarm communicator. You should look at the AlarmNet GSM3DB25KT or GSM3DB50KT antenna kits if you don’t already have the extra cables needed as they include everything you will need to connect your GSM-ANT3DB antenna to your AlarmNet cellular alarm monitoring communicator.
Before installing your GSM-ANT3DB, make sure to disconnect all power to your AlarmNet dual path or cellular alarm monitoring communicator. Once power has been disconnected, including the backup battery, you should secure the SMA connector of the K14207LF adapter cable into the SMA mounting hole at the top of your cellular alarm communicator’s plastic enclosure and then carefully connect the MMCX end of the adapter cable into the external antenna port of your AlarmNet communicator. Connect your WA7626-CA cable (purchased separately) to the SMA connector and mount the N female connector on the wall using the included bracket. Then route whichever RF antenna coax cable you have purchased to the intended location of the GSM-ANT3DB. The 7626-5 will allow you to install the GSM-ATN3DB 5’ from your cellular alarm communicator. The 7626-25HC will provide 25’ of extension and the 7626-50HC will provide 50’. The 7626 cable has an N male connector on both ends. One end connects to the WA7626-CA cable and the other end connects to the N female connector on the GSM-ANT3DB. Secure the GSM-ANT3DB weatherproof antenna to your wall or to the outside of your house using the included 7670F mounting bracket. Finally, if you have installed your GSM-ANT3DB antenna outside, use the silicone rubber tape to wrap the N male to female connection to make it waterproof.
The AlarmNet GSM-ANT3DB remote weatherproof antenna will dramatically improve the cellular signal strength of the AlarmNet GSMV, VISTA-GSM, iGSMV and iGSMHS alarm monitoring communicators. If your Honeywell LYNX Plus GSMVLP or Honeywell GSMX cellular alarm communicator is not reliably connecting to the cellular GSM tower in your area, you will need to replace the internal antenna of the GSMVLP or GSMX with the GSM-EAA external antenna accessory before connecting the GSM-ANT3DB to improve the cellular signal strength. The GSM-ANT3DB is not compatible with the Honeywell L5000 LYNX Touch GSMVLP5 or the Honeywell L5100 LYNX Touch GSMVLP5-4G cellular alarm monitoring communicators so if you have one of those Honeywell AlarmNet communicators, your only option would be to relocate your LYNX Touch alarm control panel.
