Honeywell is focused on providing the best 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.

Transmission Protocols
Honeywell's IntelliPath® Series communicators provide seamless, reliable coverage by automatically choosing the best signal in the area (whether 2G, 3G or 4G) and self-adjusting as necessary. The following wireless communication protocols are supported:
HSPA+ (4G )

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.
