Introduction Congratulations on your purchase of Honeywell's GSMV4G GSM Communicator (referred to as the GSMV4G, or GSMVCN4G in Canada). It represents the latest and most innovative communication technology for the security industry and uses sophisticated encryption to ensure the highest level of security for your customer.
“Certificate number 979.” Remote Services Honeywell now offers a new series of web based services that provides consumers with the ability to communicate with their security system remotely in a number of ways. These new web services will allow users to: •...
Opening and Closing ring back is supported by the control panel’s digital dialer. 4204 Mode and Two-4204 Mode • This mode is for use with Honeywell control panels that do not support ECP communica- tion, but do support 4204 Relay Modules •...
GSMV4G/GSMVCN4G Installation and Setup Guide • Fault output: Terminal 11 can serve as a fail-safe trigger for communicator fault conditions. If used, the fault relay will trip when the following conditions occur: tamper*, power loss*, low battery*, battery charger fault*, loss of network connectivity*, the device is not registered and the device is remotely disabled by AlarmNet.
(Honeywell transformer # 1361CN not included with the GSMVCN4G.) Current Drain: 220mA standby, 380mA active 6V, 3.1AH, (Honeywell # K14139 included with GSMV4G only.) Backup Battery: Expected Battery Life: 5 Years (approx.) Note: The sealed lead acid battery used for backup will have reduced life expectancy when exposed to elevated temperatures.
For UL installations and ULC Commercial Burglary Installations, any compatible UL or ULC (respectively) Listed Control Panel may be used. Note, that any control panel that does not communicate via Honeywell's ECP data bus is compatible using zone Trigger Mode. For ULC Commercial Fire Installations, only ULC Listed Subscriber's Unit Panels which use Honeywell's ECP data bus are compatible.

4. For Commercial Burglary installations, you must install the rear tamper switch. The cover must be secured with the supplied screw. Mounting Procedure, GSMV4G (no rear tamper switch) 1. Locate the case back over selected mounting position such that the opening in the case back is aligned with the wire/cable opening on the mounting surface.
Section 2: Mounting and Wiring Mounting Procedure, GSMVCN4G (with rear tamper switch) For Canadian installations where the rear tamper switch is used, this procedure requires the removal of the printed circuit boards and installation of the tamper screw. 1. Remove the two mounting screws, and standoff from the daughter card, as shown in Step A below.
The GSMV4G requires an optional audio cable (GSMV-AUDIO, grey) to support two-way voice using the AVS Base Unit. Note the AVS Base Unit is part of Honeywell’s AVS Audio Verification System. This system consist of the AVS Base Unit, Remote Station, and the Remote Station PC board.
Check the Installation and Setup Guide for the control panel you are using to see if it supports ECP communication. Connect the communicator to a compatible Honeywell VISTA control panel's ECP terminals, in parallel with keypads and other peripheral devices such as RF receiver, VIP module, etc.

GSMV4G/GSMVCN4G Installation and Setup Guide Shared Transformer Installation NOTE: When calculating the total load on the auxiliary power output of the control panel, budget 10mA for the communicator when using ECP mode. Backup Battery Connection The included battery (K14139) is used for backup in the event of power loss to the commu- nicator.

GSMV4G/GSMVCN4G Installation and Setup Guide 7720P Programmer Tool Connection Each key of the 7720P has two possible functions: a normal function and a Shift function. To perform a normal key function, simply press the desired key. To perform a Shift function, press the [Shift] key, and then press the appropriate key.
Section 3: Programming the Communicator Programming Conventions Programming is accomplished by answering a series of prompts (questions). Most prompts require only a [Y]es or [N]o response, while others require a numerical response (ID numbers, etc.). The current value is displayed on the second line in parentheses ( ). A "?" indicates an invalid entry.
