The Interlogix 600-1048-XT-LTE-VZ is a cellular communicator for the Concord 4 System. It operates on the Verizon LTE cellular network. By connecting a Concord 4 to this network, it will experience super fast communication speeds. The system will also be able to sync with the Alarm.com interactive service. This communication module is easy to install, and it is activated by the user's alarm monitoring company.
By adding this communicator, the Concord 4 System will become much more versatile and useful than if it only uses a standard phone line connection. It's fair to say that this the single most important upgrade that can be made for a Concord 4 System. Please note that the user will need to have an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular service in order to support this cellular communicator.
By syncing with Alarm.com, the Concord 4 will become a much more versatile system. Alarm.com allows for cloud level integrations with devices such as Nest Thermostats, MyQ Garage Door Controllers and Amazon Alexa devices. Only alarm systems with active cellular service are able to sync with Alarm.com. This makes upgrading to cellular service extremely beneficial for end users.
Alarm.com also provides other uses for security systems. A user can access the Alarm.com platform at any time to arm or disarm the system, check the status of programmed sensors and operate any Z-Wave home automation devices. And with the Alarm.com mobile app, these actions can be performed from virtually anywhere. Overall, the service offers several major conveniences for end users, and it makes it easier than ever to use an alarm system.
A major benefit of this communicator is that it connects to the Verizon LTE network. Verizon is planning on discontinuing support for their older 3G networks within the next few years. By choosing this cellular communicator, you are ensuring that your Concord 4 System will be able to receive cellular monitoring for many years into the future.
This module also includes an integrated Z-Wave controller. This Z-Wave refers to a special wireless radio frequency that is used for controlling Z-Wave home automation devices. These devices can be operated from the Alarm.com interactive service. Some of the most popular Z-Wave devices include lights, thermostats and door locks. It is also possible to establish rules and scenes for Z-Wave devices so that they are triggered automatically based on certain system events. For instance, a user might have a Z-Wave light activate automatically when they walk into a room and trigger a motion sensor.
Please note that the Concord 4 System must be running software version 4.0 or higher in order to use this communicator. If the system is not running this version, then it will require a firmware update.
