This communicator will transmit alarm signal using the same network that Verizon runs on and has dual antennas to give you exceptional signal strength. The dual antennas will increase the transmission range up to 50%. Being dual path gives this communicator the ability to be redundant. It has both internet connectivity and cellular capability. If the internet fails then the signal will be sent through the cellular network. Of course you could also choose to use just the internet or just cellular as well.

This communicator will also, on capable panels, give you a virtual keypad that will give you the ability for remote, off-site arming and disarming. This can be done through your user account through a web browser or via a smartphone application. 

With capable panels you will connect the BAT LTE to the 4 terminal keybus and the tip and ring terminals. The keybus connection will give you the virtual keypad. On panels that aren't capable of having the keybus connection there is a way to do a simple, generic keyswitch arming and disarming function. 

NOTE: The service fee of $135.00 also shown as setup fee, is non refundable once the IP BAT is activated.


Extended Information

  • Question.. Do I need a telephone or VOIP dial-tone when using the Broadband Alarm Transmitter (BAT) ?
    Answer.. No. The BAT is connected only to a broadband Internet connection. The control panel does not need dial-tone to be monitored.
  • Question.. How does the BAT obtain an IP Address?
    Answer.. The BAT automatically assigns itself an IP Address by your router through DHCP.
  • Question.. What is "Always-On" Internet?
    Answer.. This is Broadband Internet that uses a Router/Modem that is connected to the Internet Service Provider 24/7. There is no wait for dialing and connecting.
  • Question.. Can the BAT be connected to any Honeywell Vista or DSC control panel?
    Answer.. The BAT can be connected to a Vista 10P, 15P, 20P, 32BP, 128FB, 128FBP, LYNXR-I, Lynx Plus, and DSC Power Series 1616, 1832 and 1864 control panels with 4.2 firmware or later.
  • Question.. How are some signals directed to the customer and others directed to the central station?
    Answer.. The routing of your signals are performed through IpDatatel's network where authorized dealers/users can go on-line and program each account to perform these tasks.
  • Question.. Can a customer be emailed and called by telephone in the event of an alarm signal?
    Answer.. Yes, any signal type can be routed to the central station, a person or group of people, and notifications can be emailed, texted, and/or phoned to the customer.
  • Question.. If the customer doesn't want police dispatching, can all signals be send only the customer?
    Answer.. Yes, there is no requirement to send signals to a monitoring station.
  • Question.. Can the BAT work with my central station?
    Answer.. Yes, IpDatatel's carrier network can relay signals to any central station that is capable of receiving the industry standard Contact ID or SIA/FSK Databurst format. Because ipDatatel delivers standard CID or SIA alarm signals with these formats, this eliminates the need for monitoring stations to purchase expensive IP alarm receivers.
  • Question.. What signals does the BAT transmit?
    Answer.. The BAT can communicate alarms, low battery, supervisory, trouble, test, and other diagnostic signals. It also can poll the panel for connectivity and notify the customer if the panel fails to respond after a predetermined time.
  • Question.. How difficult is the BAT to install?
    Answer.. The BAT is extremely easy to install, and is connected similar to any other keypad bus module. Just install the small board inside the control panel (or an equipment panel). Connect the power and data (4 connections) to the keypad bus, and then plug the Ethernet Jack into an active router or hub. (Note: DSC also has a small 4-conductor cord from the control to the BAT, which is included.)
  • Question.. Can signals be suppressed?
    Answer.. IpDataTel's network can suppress (not relay) certain signals or groups of signals that otherwise would have been relayed to your central station and/or customer. This is based on your preferences.
  • Question.. Can the BAT relay to our corporate digital receiver?
    Answer.. Yes, IpDatatel's network can relay signals to any digital receiver using industry standard Contact ID or SIA/FSK Databurst format.
  • Question.. Can I operate my system remotely?
    Answer.. Yes. With your iPhone, you can operate your system with ipDatatel's virtual keypad just as if you were at home or the office standing in front of the keypad. Access is fully password protected.
