 GE Simon XT V2: How to Change the Time on your Wireless Security System

 

In this video you will be getting a walk through on how to change the time on your GE Simon XT V2 wireless security system. To change the time on the Simon XT, you will have to hit the down arrow button to navigate through your panel until you see “Set Clock”, then press the OK button. Enter your  default installer code 4321 than hit OK. After you enter your code it will ask you too “Set Clock”, So with the same arrow navigation buttons you can manipulate the time. Now it will first ask you to change the hour once you selected the correct hour option select OK, next it will prompt you to enter in the current minute, after you have entered in the correct minutes select OK and lastly select whether it is currently am or pm. After your time looks accurate go ahead and select the ok button one last time and hit the status button to exit out of this field.

 How will the 2G Cellular Sunset Affect my Security System?

cell-tower_10736335

 

Some may be asking how will the 2G sunset affect my security system and why are they getting rid of it? What exactly is 2g technology? 2G stands for second generation wireless cellular technology. This mode of communication has been around for quite some time since 1991 actually and has been used in security systems for years. 2G was a huge innovation for its time it replaced the old 1G format which was analog signals. There was a huge difference between 1g and 2g in two different manors. The first being 1g analog signals were much slower as far as getting the information from one point to another. Second, the signals from 1g were not encrypted so data could be intercepted much easier. 2G signals marked the first digital cellular signals meaning information could be processed at a much higher rate of speed and the data it sends will be encrypted making it significantly more difficult for someone to steal the information.

It has been a long time since the release of the 2g cellular equipment and as we all now technology has become leaps and bounds better than it once was. Now that the 2g radios have seen their last day that means 3g/4g cellular towers are taking the top position. Some of the benefits of the cellular companies doing away with the 2g services as follows. 2G radios even though in their day were thought to be very fast, they have become outdated and 3g/4g towers will be able to get their information across much swifter. Which means the signals from your security system will send to our central alarm monitoring station even quicker! You can also sleep a bit easier knowing that the 3g/4g  encryption factor has added many more layers of encryption to make it much more difficult to steal the information. Lastly, once upgrading your security system to newer 3g/4g communicator you can feel confident that you are going to get longevity out because that technology will be around for quite some time.

The time is nearing that the 2g cellular services will be sun-setting “eliminated” by the major communication networks by Jan 2017. The process has already begun and many areas have already been affected. What this means to you is that if your security system communicates to the central monitoring station with a 2g cellular communicator/radio your service may end at any time between now and 2017. GEOARM strongly recommend for you to upgrade now to one of the 3g/4g cellular communicators that way you don’t see any interruption in services leaving you vulnerable.

If you are unsure if your security system has a 2g cellular alarm communicator contact GEOARM Security so we can provide you with an array of options that would suit you best. Contact us at 1-877-443-6276 option 3 for assistance.

 How does Alarm.com Alarm Monitoring Work?

How Alarm.com and GEOARM alarm monitoring services work?

How Alarm.com and GEOARM alarm monitoring services work.

Alarm.com alarm monitoring is defined by GEOARM Security, as a communication between your existing security system, any smart phone/device and our central station.

Your 2GIG or GE control panel is the “brains” of a network of detectors/sensors, which may include window or door sensors, motion detectors, and/or temperature, flood, and smoke detectors. When your system is armed and any of these detectors/sensors are triggered, an emergency signal is sent to the GEOARM Alarm.com compatible alarm monitoring station via the wireless cellular towers.

The initial signal sent by your Alarm.com compatible control panel will alert monitoring personnel at the GEOARM central station, who will call to notify you and confirm whether it’s a real emergency or a false alarm. If you don’t respond, then GEOARM will contact the proper agency (police, fire, or EMS) to dispatch emergency personnel to your address.

Critical information is sent by your Alarm.com home security system to the GEOARM alarm monitoring center, including account identification (to access your address and contact information) and the type of sensor that has been triggered. For example, a smoke detector event will cause the alarm monitoring service to contact the fire department, while the signal from a medical alert pendant will be routed to ambulance or paramedic services.

 Alarm.com ADC-POE-INJ Power-Over-Ethernet for Wired Security Cameras

The Alarm.com ADC-V700X outdoor day/night IP security camera is PoE-compatible, allowing it to be powered by the Ethernet cable if connected to the ADC-POE-INJ power-over-ethernet (PoE) injector installed at the network router. When installing the ADC-V700X with this PoE injector, the outdoor security camera’s power socket wire and AC power adapter are not used, since it derives power from its Ethernet connection to the PoE power injector instead. This allows you to run only one wire back from the camera to the router, without worrying about a power cable.
