Interlogix NX-592E-GSM-ZX-AT Alarm.com AT&T Communicator

The NX-592E-GSM-ZX-AT is an Alarm.com cellular communicator that works with Interlogix NetworX alarm panels: NX-4, NX-6, NX-8, and NX-8E. Using this communicator will give you a huge amount of flexibility because it can be used for central station monitoring, self monitoring, or the combination of the two. It gives you this flexibility thanks to Alarm.com which offers wireless signal forwarding to a central station as well as interactive features that you can use for self monitoring. The NX-592E-GSM-ZX-AT uses AT&T's 3G cellular network for communication. If you have a strong AT&T network coverage in your location, this communicator will work wonderfully for you. Alternatively, if Verizon has a better cellular network in your area you can use the NX-592E-CDMA-ZX-VZ. Alarm communication over a cellular network has become more and more popular thanks to numerous advantages and other factors. Many people are choosing to drop plain old telephone lines in favor of other alternatives and it may be hard to justify keeping a landline just for alarm communication. Also, using cellular offers the advantage of the communication being completely wireless and not tied to fully to your home's AC thanks to your security system's backup battery. So even if your power is out, the cellular communicator will still function for a short time. And with the proliferation of cellular networks, most people live in an area where the cellular network is incredibly reliable.

For you to use this communicator, you will also need to purchase an Alarm.com service plan. For residential, there are 4 plans to choose from: Wireless Signal Forwarding, Basic Interactive, Advanced Interactive, and Interactive Gold. Each of those service levels includes all of the features of the prior levels. If you want to use the traditional central station monitoring, you will need to choose any of the Alarm.com service plans in addition to the base monitoring service. For self monitoring, you will want to choose one of the interactive plans. These plans will give you numerous additional features including: remote arming and disarming, location based services through your smartphone, custom notifications for a multitude of system events, and home automation.

The communicator does have a built-in Z-Wave hub for use with the Interactive Gold plan from Alarm.com. Due to the proprietary interface and integration from Alarm.com, there are only certain home automation devices that work with Alarm.com. They do have a large variety of Z-Wave devices that will work with their service from multiple manufacturers. This includes lighting and power devices like the LIN-WO15Z1 wall outlet, access devices like the GD00Z-4 Z-Wave Garage Door Controller, thermostats like the Alarm.com Smart Thermostat, and other miscellaneous devices like the Fortrezz WV-01 Z-Wave Indoor Automated Water Shut-off Valve. All the home automation devices can be controlled with Alarm.com’s powerful rules engine. With it you can create custom automation events such as having your lights turn off and your thermostat turn down when you arm your home security system in away mode.
