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.
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
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.
