Introducing the all-new Resideo 5800SMOKEV which is a 3V lithium-powered, photoelectric multi-criteria detector that has a built-in wireless transmitter capable of detecting smoke, heat, rate-of-rise and low temperature.
DIY friendly alarm companies, such as GeoArm, make it simple for the end user to add 5800SMOKEV detectors to any compatible security system, which supports 5800-Series sensors. The following control panels (e.g. VISTA®, LYNX, Lyric®, ProSeries, Qolsys IQ Panel 4, Qolsys IQ4 Hub) can accept 345 MHz wireless RF frequency sensors, including the 5800SMOKEV sensor.
5800SMOKEV meets UL 268 7th Edition requirements, which provides early
detection, while also reducing nuisance alarms from everyday cooking. The
5800SMOKEV has improved detection of smoke from common synthetic materials
found in many modern home furnishings, which typically burn faster and hotter.
This comprehensive detector is particularly ideal for hard-to-wire locations or where hazardous materials exist, and features a small, sleek design for locations where aesthetics are of utmost importance. The built-in sounder provides clear, audible annunciation during potential incidents and low battery conditions.

Supervision: The detector will transmits its status every 60 to 70 minutes
The Honeywell HW-AV-LTE-M Connected Life Safety Services (CLSS) Dual-Path LTE Communicator with dial-capture interface for commercial building fire alarm monitoring has been released on GeoArm.
The HW-AV-LTE-M is a commercial fire dual-path (internet and cellular multi-band AT&T/Verizon LTE) alarm communicator designed for universally compatible fire alarm panels. The CLSS Pathway combines dial capture functionality with the powerful capabilities of Honeywell’s CLSS Cloud. It represents the latest alarm communications technology for the fire industry. The CLSS Pathway allows data transmission by utilizing LTE CAT-M1 networks, serving as a bridge between the fire system and the CLSS Cloud. This device provides a single site-to-cloud path ensuring all CLSS Cloud services use the same audited and monitored method to access the on-premises life safety system.
The CLSS Pathway is commissioned via the CLSS mobile app and CLSS Site Manager interface, which also allow for additional remote visibility. Connection and mounting is simplified using the enclosure kit. The CLSS Pathway is compatible with any fire alarm dialer using Contact ID format and automatically recognizes the format when powered up. Any number can be programmed into the panel phone numbers. Installers can select the central station service they wish to use from a list of approved central station providers.
Equipped with dual SIM cards, the CLSS Pathway supports both AT&T and Verizon networks. When first powered on, the communicator selects the strongest signal. If either path is not available, the device provides redundant paths for the cellular signal. The HW-AV-LTE-M dual-path communicator transmits signals to the AlarmNet Control Center (via the internet or AT&T/Verizon cellular LTE network), which in turn routes signals to the GeoArm central station. If the Internet and AT&T or Verizon LTE networks are all unavailable (fail), the message will not be sent using this HW-AV-LTE-M communicator.
Honeywell CLSS is an innovative, all-in-one cloud platform that enables systems integrators and facilities managers to deliver an enhanced fire safety service, while maximizing the performance efficiencies offered by Honeywell’s trusted detection and alarm systems.
The CLSS platform enables users to;
Universal Panel Compatibility – Dial capture interface supporting Contact ID
Get a “bird’s eye” view of all accounts
Obtain real-time information on event generation, enabling diagnosis before dispatch
Conduct tests and inspections using a mobile app (available in select markets)

Connection monitoring – adjustable fault reporting time as low as 20 seconds
Web-based software and smartphone app for device configuration and administration
GeoArm Security releases the All-New Alarm.com Pro Series Commercial Stream Video Recorders (“CSVR’s”) for commercial-grade business security.
The Alarm.com Pro Series CSVR gives your customers the convenience of 24/7 local recording with cloud-connected accessibility, allowing them to review and export footage from anywhere. Plus, its built-in PoE options make it easier for you to install while lowering equipment and wiring costs.
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. Just insert an updated standard SD card into the SD slot and follow the onscreen prompts, similar to other “off-the-shelf” digital picture frames.

At GeoArm, we have just received notice from Resideo Pro (formerly “Honeywell Home”) that the older LYNX Plus L3000 and LYNX Touch L7000 wireless control panels are being discontinued from new sales as of April 18, 2022(or while supplies last).
More recently, Resideo has released the all-new ProSeries platform, with two self-contained offerings, the PROA7 and PROA7PLUS, along with the SiX sensor portfolio and LTE communicators. This ProSeries platform will act as the replacement moving forward.
Customers who still have a L3000 or L7000 panel have the full protection of the Resideo warranty.
Resideo’s AlarmNet and Total Connect 2.0 interactive app services experienced a global outage on 3/13/22 starting at approximately 9 PM ET.
Some conspiracy theorists out there thought it was a ransomware attack. Well it turns out that you can now take a deep breath, as Resideo strongly denied those claims. It seems the reason for the outage is quite embarrassingly simple, it had to do with their environmental system.
Total Connect 2.0 has now been fully restored within about 12 hours or so of it initially going down. GeoArm has confirmed at approximately 2:30 PM ET (on 3/14/22) that both Apple iOS and Android devices are now able to successfully connect again. Resideo has confirmed that Total Connect 2.0 is restored as well.
For most GeoArm customers, you do not need to do anything at all. However, we have found upon restoral for some panels, such as the LYNX Touch WiFi that they are not successfully reconnecting. If applicable, in most cases all you have to do is reboot the panel. If this does not work than go back through the WiFi settings and rejoin your network.
We are excited to announce the brand new Alarm.com Pro Series bullet/turret and dome cameras are available on GeoArm. Help customers monitor their businesses any time, from anywhere with Alarm.com’s best-in-class PoE cameras.

The Alarm.com Pro Series business security cameras come in 4 new models:
Resideo (REZI) has announced that they intend to acquire First Alert, Inc., a leading provider of home safety products from Newell Brands for $593 million in cash.
The deal is a natural extension to Resideo’s home comfort and security business and extends the number of residential sensors they have in the home. For those unfamiliar with the security industry, for many decades Resideo and its affiliates have previously sold First Alert equipment across it’s residential new construction and other professional segments.
“We’re excited about First Alert becoming part of our overall product portfolio and the growth opportunities we’ll have in the future. Their strategy and vision as a company align with our vision to help make homes safer and more secure,” said Scott Harkins, Vice President, Sales and Channel Americas.
As far as timelines for this transaction to occur, they have intentions of integrating the First Alert brand into the Resideo umbrella later in the first quarter of 2022. However, as with all acquisition’s including this one, it is still subject to regulatory approval.
