The Resideo LTEM-PXV is a dual-path capable Verizon LTE Cat-M1 communicator that is easy to install. Rather than having its own transformer and backup battery, the LTEM-PXV receives all its power from the alarm panel. This makes for a simple 4-wire connection between the communicator and the alarm system, with no other wiring required. The LTEM-PXV even comes with a wiring harness to make the connection as simple as possible.
Traditionally, Alarmnet-compatible communicators have only been used with Honeywell or Resideo alarm panels. But with the newest entries into the Resideo product line, this is changing. The LTEM-PXV can support Total Connect 2.0 remote services with certain older DSC and Interlogix panels. In the DSC line, the DSC PC1616, PC1832, and PC1864 panels are supported. In the Interlogix/GE line, the NX-8, NX-8V2, NX-6V2, and NX-4V2 panels are supported. With the Interlogix panels, the use of the PRODCM Dialer Capture Module is also required.
LTE stands for Long Term Evolution, and it's the technology behind fourth-generation cellular technology. There are actually a number of variants within LTE, and LTE Cat-M1, otherwise known as LTE-M is one of them. The different categories represent differences in speed, frequency, power consumption, and signaling range. There are trade-offs available between these categories, and manufacturers take advantage of these trade-offs to offer the best value for the price. For example, LTE Cat-M1 gives up a little bit of data speed in exchange for increased power efficiency and a longer signal range. This is why it is considered the primary IoT (Internet of Things) cellular solution.
