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
To ensure maximum login security, GeoArm’s Alarm.com subscribers will be required to enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). Two-Factor Authentication requires the entry of an additional code at login, providing an extra layer of protection if passwords are compromised.
At the end of August, subscribers will be prompted to set up 2FA and verify their phone, tablet, or laptop as a trusted device when they log in to the mobile app or customer website. They can choose to receive 2FA verification codes via e-mail, SMS, or authenticator app. This update will roll out gradually.
Please note that 2FA can only be associated with one account, so creating secondary logins per user is recommended to provide the best experience for all users during their first login.
