Honeywell LTE-L3V - Verizon LTE Cellular Communicator for L3000 Reviews
Submitted on 09/24/2020 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell LTE-L3V is a Verizon LTE Communicator for a Honeywell L3000 Security System. By installing and activating this communicator, a Honeywell L3000 can communicate with the AlarmNet servers. This is necessary for getting the system monitored and set up with the Total Connect 2.0 interactive service platform. The module is extremely reliable, due to the fact that it relies on cellular connectivity. Overall, this is an excellent communicator option for anyone with a Honeywell L3000 System who wants to receive reliable alarm monitoring service. We give the Honeywell LTE-L3V a perfect 5-Star rating.
There are many things to like about the Honeywell LTE-L3V. For one, the communicator connects with the Verizon LTE Network. It is very important to choose an LTE communicator, because the LTE cellular networks are going to be kept in service for a very long time. Older 3G and CDMA networks are in the process of being shut down in favor of newer LTE networks. Even once 5G is inevitably released, LTE networks will be kept running as a backup. We also like the fact that the Honeywell LTE-L3V allows for connectivity with the Total Connect 2.0 platform. This service is great for controlling your Honeywell L3000 System remotely using a web browser or an app on your phone. And of course, as a cellular communicator, the Honeywell LTE-L3V provides reliable connectivity.
There are not many downsides for the Honeywell LTE-L3V. Like any communicator for the system, the Honeywell LTE-L3V will need to be installed inside the L3000. This can be slightly inconvenient, but you only need to do it once. There is also the consideration that you must pay for cellular monitoring service with the LTE-L3V, which is more expensive than IP-only monitoring. Finally, the Honeywell LTE-L3V is for the L3000 only, which does limit how it can be used. But these downsides are nothing too significant, and they do not stop us from awarding the Honeywell LTE-L3V a perfect 5-Star score.
Good: LTE Communicator, Total Connect 2.0, Reliable
Bad: Must be Installed, Cellular is More Expensive, For L3000 Only
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
