We have now added the Honeywell 7847i IP Communicator to our site!! This IP communicator will work for anyone who wants central station monitoring and has a broadband internet connection. This piece of equipment is very handy if you want central station monitoring service but you don't have a land-line phone line and/or a GSM cellular communicator will not receive good enough signal in the location that you're putting it in.

You can also, through Alarmnet service, use this for download programming and Total Connect monitoring add-on service. Total Connect will allow you to remotely/access and control your alarm system and receive notifications of alarm events all through the use of the 7847i. You can use this as your primary reporting option or as a backup to your phone line. A lot of people are foregoing land-line telephones for VOIP and the Honeywell 7847i IP Communicator makes having monitoring without land-line service an option.

This unit uses 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard or optional 1,024 bit encryption with two-way authentication making reporting through the internet a safe alternative and you never have to worry about your information being compromised. The 7847i also has dial capture features which allows a non-ECP enabled alarm panel to transfer information from it's phone-line terminals to the IP device and then they are routed to your central station. The 7847i is also tamper resistant because of the tamper switch under the cover.

If someone gets the bright idea to open the 7847i to try and disable it; a tamper signal is automatically sent if you have monitoring. All-in-all this is a great choice for an alternative to land-line monitoring. You can check out the specifications of the 7847i HERE
