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.
