The SEM210-VT-AT is a dual path alarm communicator that can be used with the Honeywell Vista 10P, Vista 15P, and Visat 20P alarm panels that are from year 2005 and forward. Being dual path it can use cellular communication for the primary and internet for a backup communication path. This makes the SEM redundant and provides more piece of mind because if one fails the other takes over.
The SEM uses the 4G LTE cellular network to quickly transmit alarm signals. This SEM is powered by the alarm system’s 12 volt power supply and gathers this power from the system’s backup battery. It also connects to the keybus terminals of the Vista series panels. This also features several LEDs which are used for reading signal strength, network and module status, power, and Z-Wave indicators. This module also features dual antennas to maximize cell signal strength.
This does contain a fully functional Z-Wave controller which can be used to set up a Z-Wave home automation network in your building by using the Alarm.com Residential Interactive with Automation package. Yes, this will allow you to subscribe to any level of Alarm.com Interactive services and can also be used to forward alarm signals to a central station monitoring service.
