The Honeywell LTE-L57A is the AT&T version of the LTE cellular communicator for the Honeywell LYNX Touch Systems. The module will allow a Honeywell L5210 or L7000 System to connect with the fast and reliable AT&T LTE Network. This is crucial for ensuring the long-term function of the system.
Connecting with the AT&T LTE Network provides superb performance for the Honeywell LYNX Touch Systems when communicating with the Honeywell AlarmNet servers. LTE refers to "Long-Term Evolution", and these networks are known for their ultra-fast speeds and overall reliability. This is very important for anyone who wants consistent and dependable communication with AlarmNet and a central monitoring station.
Although older cellular networks (2G, 3G, etc.) are in the process of being discontinued, AT&T has repeatedly stated that they plan on supporting their 4G LTE network well into the distant future. The LTE network will continue to remain active even as 5G networks are introduced in the coming years. By obtaining this communicator, a user is future-proofing their LYNX Touch System so that it can continue to protect their home or business for many years. This communicator is an excellent long-term investment for keeping these versatile and capable LYNX Touch Panels running and communicating reliably.
Cellular networks provide tremendous performance and dependability for alarm systems overall. Unlike WIFI, a cellular communication path almost never goes down. Another benefit is that cellular networks are not affected by common power outages, and a system will remain monitored even when the electricity is out. With LTE speeds, the panel will enjoy fast communication with AlarmNet. Not only will this allow for a quicker response from a central monitoring station during an alarm, it will also help any smart home automation commands to go through more efficiently. Plus, the user will receive personal notifications via text and/or email more quickly as well. This makes upgrading to LTE essential for getting the most out of the system.
Please Note: Requires Firmware Version 9 or higher on LYNX Touch L5210 and L7000. Newly purchased systems should already be running this firmware version. Older models will require a firmware update using the firmware updater tool, which can be purchased separately..
