The Honeywell Home PROA7PLUS Upgrade Kit comes with the PROA7PLUS Wireless All-in-One (AIO) alarm panel, a PROLTE-A AT&T LTE Cellular Communicator, and an 8' (2.4m) LT-Cable, which will allow you to easily connect the main system to power. This kit provides the heart of a dual-path monitored system. Just add sensors!
The PROA7PLUS is the latest wireless AIO panel from Resideo and Honeywell Home. It is the first major panel release since Resideo and Honeywell Home were spun off from their parent company, Honeywell. This panel is sleek, yet substantial. It doesn't feel flimsy. When mounted to the wall, it fits snugly inside its mounting plate, which snugs up to the wall nicely.
The features of the PROA7PLUS are what we've come to expect in a wireless AIO panel. It has a 7" Graphic Capacitive Touchscreen interface with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, and 16.7 million colors. Up to four (4) partitions can be supported. The front-facing camera can be used to take disarm photos. In addition, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) support means you can pair your phone with the system, tie it to a valid user code, and have the system automatically disarm when your phone comes within Bluetooth range. Bluetooth disarming is only available when the system is armed in the Away mode. Up to six (6) separate phones can be paired with the system.
If you have existing wireless sensors that were made by another manufacturer, the PROTAKEOVER module (sold separately) may allow you to continue to use those sensors with the PROA7PLUS. The PROTAKEOVER can support Honeywell 5800 Series, 2GIG unencrypted 345 MHz Sensors*, Qolsys* or Interlogix/GE 319.5 MHz sensors, DSC 433 MHz sensors (non-PowerG), or Bosch 433 MHz sensors. Napco sensors are not supported, even though they also use 319.5 MHz.
If you happen to be replacing a wired system, then the PROSIXC2W (sold separately) can be used to convert up to eight (8) wired sensors into PROSIX wireless sensors. Each PROSIXC2W comes with its own DC Power Adapter and backup battery. This wired-to-wireless converter uses resistor calibration. As long as the wired zone has a resistor installed with a value between 1k and 10k (1,000 Ohms to 10,000 Ohms) then all you have to do is remove the wires from the existing panel or expander, connect them to the input zones on the PROSIXC2W, make sure all of the zones are restored. This means doors and windows are closed, no movement is detected by motions, etc. Then press the calibration button on the converter module. Once calibrated, the converted wired zones are ready for use with the system. If the zones have no resistors installed, the PROSIXC2W comes with its own resistors. They can be installed at the converter module, and then the unit can be calibrated.
The PROA7PLUS comes with the PROWIFIZW installed from the factory. This provides access to 2.4 GHz WIFI and includes the Z-Wave Plus controller. Fresh out of the box, the PROA7PLUS is ready to support any of the SiX or PROSIX lineup of sensors as well as any Z-Wave devices you may have. In addition to providing lightning-fast access to your system when using Total Connect 2.0 remote services, WIFI also allows the panel to support the PROWLTOUCH wireless touchscreen keypads (sold separately).
The PROLTE-A AT&T LTE Cellular Communicator is included in this kit. AT&T LTE is available in nearly every area of the United States and can often be used in other areas of North America, such as Canada. WIFI communication is great at providing quick responses while you're controlling your system and automation devices remotely, but it's not always reliable for mission-critical things like reporting alarm signals. Particularly in life-safety situations, like a fire alarm. That's why we always recommend dual-path reporting.
Cellular companies have lots of redundancies built into their networks. In the same way that an old landline phone would usually work even when the power was out, a cellular phone will also usually work during a power outage. There are exceptions, but cellular outages are usually brief, and not widespread. For this reason, LTE cellular is the preferred method of transporting alarm signals. The PROA7PLUS will use WIFI if it is available, but as soon as it senses that WIFI is missing, it will switch over to the AT&T LTE communicator, which stands ready to transport any signals.
The Honeywell LT-Cable is one of the great enhancements for DIYers, provided by a professional security products manufacturer. It is an 8' (2.4m) cable that has spade connectors at one end, which connect to the alarm panel transformer. The wires are color-coded Red and Black, for those systems that use a DC Power Adapter, such as the PROA7PLUS. At the opposite end, it has a barrel connector (center positive). Many newer panels also have a barrel connector that this end can plug into. For those that require a connection via screw terminals, there is a dongle that connects to the barrel end of the LT-Cable. This dongle has two pre-stripped leads that can be connected to the panel. These are also color-coded Red and Black, for panels that use DC power.
*The 2GIG Encrypted sensors are not supported by the PROTAKEOVER. If the model number of the sensor has an e, such as 2GIG DW10e that means it is encrypted, and not compatible. On the other hand, the Qolsys S-Line sensors can work with the PROTAKEOVER, at least in theory, though they will lose their ability to transmit encrypted data. All wireless sensors that are used with the PROTAKEOVER must be learned in locally.
