Honeywell is focused on providing the future of alarm communication solutions for the security industry. Alternative communication methods are critical in the marketplace due to VoIP, migration from POTS and global growth of digital networks.
Honeywell’s Digital Cellular Communicators deliver secure, reliable and complementary digital communications via the GSM (Global System for Mobile) network. Our use of Dual-Path GPRS service with SMS backup provides substantial benefits to protect your investment by future-proofing your recurring revenue.
This groundbreaking communications solution offers full data reporting and uploading/downloading with most Honeywell control panels. In addition, with onboard zone inputs and optional dialer capture capability, we’re compatible with other manufacturers’ security panels as well. Honeywell communication products and control panels combine to make installations faster and easier.
All signals are delivered to Honeywell’s AlarmNet Network Control Center, which routes the information to the appropriate central station. The state-of-the-art AlarmNet Network Control Center is fully redundant and monitored 24/7. AlarmNet has the ability to route messages using AlarmNet-i and 800 PLUS services, providing true redundancy and multi-path message delivery.
