Introducing the DSC PowerSeries Pro Touchscreen Alarm Keypads (by Johnson Controls)

GeoArm adds the DSC PowerSeries Pro Touchscreen Hardwired Keypads for professional security.

The DSC HS2TCHPRO (in white color) and HS2TCHPROBLK (in black color) hardwired alarm keypads are now available at GeoArm Security. Having an easy-to-use 7″ touchscreen, these high-tech professional alarm keypads are compatible with DSC PowerSeries Pro line of security systems.

The PowerSeries Pro touchscreen keypads com equipped with proximity support and are expandable up to 248 total zones (with built-in PowerG wireless transceiver). The touchscreen keypad is easy to install and simple to program with a user-friendly interface packaged in a low-profile white case that easily blends into any décor.

The keypad has been designed with the user and installer in mind. For the user, menu driven, intuitive screens with large buttons make programming very easy to configure desired options. For example, to access the Fire, Medical, Panic keys, users just press the EMERGENCY button on the sidebar. LED status lights on the bottom of the frame provide a quick visual check on the security system. Programming of labels is made simple through the ‘QWERTY’ keypad. The installer will also have the ability to do installer programming from virtual keypad, as well directly through the keypad.

Building from the default or optional displays, the installer can quickly configure five of the graphical icons from over 10 options, depending on the user’s needs. With up to 32 partitions available, the keypad offers the benefits of a multi-partition control panel without changing the control panel and lets each partition zone act independently from the rest of the system.

The display can be easily customized for the user. For example if the user doesn’t want to see partitions but wants to turn the chimes on and off, simply hide/display the appropriate icons. The clutter-free home screen can be easily modified later by the installer through password-protected setting menus.

The background of the home screen can be easily customized by the installer to display company logos, contact information, pictures, etc. The integrated digital picture frame gives homeowners the flexibility to display photos as a single photo or a timed slideshow or default background screen.

GeoArm adds the Alula BAT-FIRE Universal Fire Alarm Communicator

GeoArm has released the Alula BAT-FIRE universal dual-path commercial fire communicator.

GeoArm has just released the all new Alula BAT-FIRE universal dual-path IP/cellular commercial fire alarm communicators in both the AT&T and Verizon 5G LTE-M models to the DIY business security market.

The Alula BAT-FIRE-ATT and BAT-FIRE-VZ are universal dual-path internet/cellular AT&T/Verizon 5G LTE-M commercial fire alarm communicator(s). The BAT-FIRE communicator connects to an intrusion or fire alarm control panel (FACP) and provides central station alarm reporting.

The BAT-FIRE can be configured to provide dual-path connectivity using Ethernet/broadband and cell or single-path connectivity using either Ethernet/broadband or cell to Bosch Conettix D6100IPv6 receivers at the central station. The BAT-FIRE allows system integrators to save money, maximize install flexibility and skip the 4G cellular sunset.

It provides two PSTN interfaces for the FACP/burg panel’s DACT phone line connections. The BAT-Fire’s DACT phone interface connection provides phone line voltage, dial tone, ringback tone and all required CID protocol signaling. The BAT-FIRE receives CID events from the FACP/burg panel’s DACT and then relays the CID events to the GeoArm central station receiver.

The BAT-FIRE-ATT provides inputs that can be used to monitor an FACP’s alarm, AC fail, and trouble points (dry contact outputs). In this topology BAT-Fire inputs will be connected to the FACP points (dry contact outputs). The communicator will continually monitor the state of the FACP points (dry contact outputs). A state change on a BAT-FIRE-ATT monitored FACP point (dry contact output) will be reported to the GeoArm central station.

Product Features:

  • Supports 12V and 24V regulated FACPs/burg panels
  • Alarm capture via phone line interface or standard FACP/burg panel points
  • Supports Contact ID (CID) reporting format
  • Dual Path: Ethernet (primary) with Cellular AT&T/Verizon 5G LTE-M (backup)

GeoArm and Resideo Partner with CellBounce

GeoArm and Resideo Partner with CellBounce for AT&T 3G-to-LTE Customer Conversions.

GeoArm and Resideo have partnered with CellBounce to help address the AT&T 3G Sunset on 2/22/2022. The security industry is facing a major challenge: As cellular carriers begin to retire their 3G networks, existing AT&T 3G GSM Communicators will no longer be able to connect to a carrier network. CellBounce has developed technology, specifically designed to keep Resideo AlarmNet 3G GSM devices connected beyond the current 3G sunset of 2/22/22.

The CellBounce (model number: CB34UDRES01A) provides a seamless AT&T 3G GSM to LTE connection between an existing Resideo AT&T 3G GSM Communicator and AT&T LTE network. CellBounce is simple to activate and can be installed easily by the end-user by plugging it into an electrical outlet within 25 feet of their current communicator. CellBounce eliminates the need for a truck roll / technician to visit each site to upgrade or modify the existing device. When installed CellBounce establishes a conversion of the existing Resideo AT&T 3G GSM Communicator signals on the new LTE service. Service functionality of the AT&T network is maintained with the CellBounce unit.

Product Features:

  • Plug-and-play 3G to LTE conversion
  • Keep AT&T 3G devices connected past the sunset
  • Designed for quick and easy end-user installation
  • Easy provisioning via AlarmNet 360™
  • No truck roll needed
  • Doesn’t require technicians entering homes and business
  • AT&T only
  • US only
  • Compatible with Existing Communicators ; GSMV4G, IGSMV4G, Vista-21iP4G, 3GL/4GL, GSMVLP5-4G, LCP500-L, GSMX4G, GSMVLP4G

GeoArm Expands With Resideo’s Innovative LTEM-P Alarm Communicator

Introducing the all new dual-path alarm communicator that supports either AT&T or Verizon Cellular LTE, Ethernet or optional Wi-Fi/Z-Wave automation control by Resideo Technologies, Inc.

GeoArm, a fast-growing, do-it-yourself brand in smart home and business security, announced today the release of the all-new Resideo LTEM-P dual-path alarm communicators. 

Together, GeoArm and Resideo (formerly “Honeywell Home”) are adding more alternative technologies for switching away from the traditional overpriced alarm company. With universal compatibility, the do-it-yourselfer can easily add the newly released LTEM-P communicator into most existing security systems. Whether a consumer has a DSC PowerSeries, Honeywell Home VISTA-Series, GE Interlogix NetworX NX-Series, or other burglary intrusion control panel that supports Contact ID, this brand new Resideo communicator is a great choice for low-cost, nationwide, central station alarm monitoring services provided by GeoArm.

“We are excited to offer the new Resideo product line of LTEM-P universal communicators into our brand’s portfolio of products and services that our customers have to choose from in advance of the cellular radio sunset dates set to take place in the first quarter of 2022,” said Steve Rosenthal, General Manager of GeoArm. With the impending sunset of the cellular 3G/4G AT&T network taking effect in the month of February 2022, and the cellular 3G/4G Verizon network slated to shutdown sometime later in 2022, it was important for users to find a low-priced, cellular 5G LTE radio that offered maximum network longevity.

With an LTE Cat M1 cellular alarm communicator built into the module for use over either the AT&T or Verizon 4G/5G network, this radio was constructed for the strongest signal penetration in the most challenging of installation environments. “Because the Resideo LTEM-P comes with its own plug-in power supply and doesn’t require power directly from the panel, it is easy to install in just minutes,” said Drew Davis, Operations Manager of GeoArm. The equipment was made by Resideo for a DIY-friendly installation and only requires a screwdriver in order to land just two wires on the takeover circuit board’s dialer, keybus or ECP connector.

Having an advanced modular design, the LTEM-P was engineered to be compatible with future control panels and cellular services that have still yet to come. For customers wanting Wi-Fi and/or Z-Wave automation control, they can add the PROWIFIZW communications module at any time. Resideo offers secure web-based services that enable users to remotely monitor and control the VISTA-Series hardwired security systems. These web services enable users to monitor and control the security system using their Android or iOS smartphone, receive email notifications of system events, and receive event confirmations using the Total Connect 2.0 interactive monitoring app.
