The Networx NX-410-US-AT Alarm.com AT&T LTE and IP Dual-Path Communicator provides connectivity for a compatible Networx Alarm Panel. The module will work with a Networx 4V2, 6V2, 8V2, or 8E System. Using this communicator will let the panel connect with Alarm.com for monitoring service.
As a dual-path communicator, this module will provide your compatible Networx Panel with two communication paths for accessing the Alarm.com Servers. This communicator works across both AT&T LTE and internet protocol (IP). In most cases, IP will serve as the primary communication path. This is because IP is slightly faster than LTE communication. But if the internet ever goes down, the cellular communication path will still be there as a reliable backup. This will ensure that your Networx System stays consistently connected with Alarm.com for monitoring service.
Adding a cellular communicator is perhaps the most important upgrade you can make for you alarm system. Cellular communication is extremely reliable, as service almost never goes down or becomes unavailable. Using cellular connectivity with your system will help ensure that your signals always go through and that your monitoring service works as reliably as possible. Additionally, this is an AT&T LTE communicator, and AT&T has stated that they plan to support their LTE network well into the very distant future. This communicator will help ensure that your panel will remain monitored for many years to come. Please note that you will need a Gold Plan or higher to activate this module.
By using this communicator, you will be able to access the Alarm.com interactive service platform for controlling your system. This can be done remotely through the Alarm.com Mobile App. Alarm.com lets you arm and disarm your system, check current system status, control Z-Wave smart home devices, view ADC cameras and more. This communicator also effectively doubles as a Z-Wave controller so that you can start building a smart home network around your system. Popular Z-Wave devices include lights, locks, thermostats and more. You can set your Z-Wave devices on Alarm.com to activate based on a set schedule or with predetermined system events.
