Description

The Networx NX-592E-GSM-ZX-TM is a cellular communicator that is used for accessing the 3G T-Mobile cellular network. By using this device, a panel can sync with the Alarm.com server. In addition to serving as a cellular communicator, the module also features an integrated Z-Wave controller for operating Z-Wave home automation devices. But users should be aware that 3G cellular networks are soon going to be discontinued in favor of faster and more reliable LTE cellular networks. For that reason, we encourage users to purchase an LTE communicator for their panel instead. Alarm Grid offers compatible LTE communicators that will work with the AT&T, Verizon and Telus networks.

Adding a cellular communicator is possibly the single most important upgrade that a user can make for their alarm system. With a cellular communicator, a panel will communicate faster and more reliably than if it uses a standard telephone line. When it comes to alarm systems, telephone lines represent a dated technology that results in sluggish performance. Additionally, telephone lines can potentially be cut by intruders, rendering the alarm system useless. However, cellular communication is incredibly fast and reliable. Plus it cannot be easily tampered with, helping ensure that the system will always maintain active communication. This is why we recommend cellular communication for every user.

By using a cellular communicator, an alarm panel will be able to sync with the Alarm.com interactive service. This platform provides a user with even greater access to their security system. By accessing Alarm.com, an end user can arm and disarm their system, check the status of sensors and control their programmed Z-Wave devices. And with the Alarm.com Mobile App, these actions can be performed from virtually anywhere in the world. With its great features and easily accessibility, Alarm.com allows users to get the very most out of their systems.

By adding a cellular communicator, a user will also be able to use Z-Wave home automation devices with their system. Z-Wave refers to a special type of RF signal that is used with certain home automation devices. There are many types of Z-Wave devices, including lights, door locks and thermostats. Creating a home automation network of Z-Wave devices can save a user money, and it can make their lives more convenient overall. A user can also establish rules and scenes on Alarm.com that will allow the Z-Wave devices to activate automatically when certain events occur on the system. For instance, a user might have a Z-Wave light turn on when they walk into a room and trip a motion sensor. Or the user might have all their lights turn off and their thermostat cool down when they set the system to armed stay before they go to sleep.

Get an LTE Communicator Instead.
Submitted on 07/24/2019 Alarm Grid

We do not recommend purchasing the Interlogix Networx NX-592E-GSM-ZX-TM. With the Alarm.com 3G sunset, this communicator can no longer be activated. You should purchase an equivalent LTE communicator instead. The LTE communicators are available for around the same price as this module ($217.99 at the time of this review).

Cellular service providers are currently in the process of shutting down their older 3G networks in favor of the more advanced LTE networks. The companies that operate alarm monitoring platforms are aware of this, and they have made it impossible to activate 3G communicators for monitoring service. If you purchase the Interlogix Networx NX-592E-GSM-ZX-TM, you will not be able to activate it. As a result, this product is totally useless. The module was useful when ADC still allowed 3G activations. In fact, it was fairly unique for being a T-Mobile Communicator with Z-Wave control. But now, this module is obsolete.

Instead of the Interlogix Networx NX-592E-GSM-ZX-TM, you should get an equivalent LTE communicator. The best options are either the Alarm.com NX-410-US-AT (AT&T LTE) or the Interlogix Networx NX-592E-LTE-ZX-VZ (Verizon LTE). Just choose whichever service works better in your area. Most users with good T-Mobile service will also have good service from either AT&T or Verizon. These LTE communicators also include built-in Z-Wave control. This means that you will be able to start building a Z-Wave network for use with Alarm.com.

Remember, you will need an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular communication to activate one of these modules. A Gold Plan or Platinum Plan from Alarm Grid are both excellent options for alarm monitoring. These plans also include home automation service so that you can start using Alarm.com for smart home control. You can click the orange Alarm Monitoring button at the top of this page to learn more about alarm monitoring.

With an LTE communicator, you will get faster and more reliable monitoring service. You will also be able to keep your system monitored well into the very distant future. Cellular service providers have stated that they have no plans to shut down their LTE networks any time soon. By getting an LTE communicator, you are essentially "future-proofing" your system. If you want to keep your Interlogix Networx panel monitored for the long run, don't get a 3G communicator. Get an LTE communicator. Either the Alarm.com NX-410-US-AT or the Interlogix Networx NX-592-LTE-ZX-VZ is what you need.
