General Information and Component Identification
Congratulations on your purchase of Honeywell's LTE-IV/LTE-IA communicator (LTE-IC
in Canada). These communicators send alarms and messages from the security
system's control panel to AlarmNet for subsequent transfer to the central monitoring
In addition to alarm reporting, they provide upload/downloading capability of Honeywell's
control panel programming data. Refer to the Installation and Setup Guide for the use of
These communicators represent the most innovative communication technology for the
security industry and use sophisticated encryption to ensure the highest level of security.
This guide addresses a simple installation using default programming values where
possible and is applicable for the majority of installations. For detailed information on
UL, ULC, and configuration of remote services, please refer to the appropriate
Installation and Setup Guide for the product. The LTE-IV, LTE-IA and LTE-IC are
henceforth referred to as the communicator or communications module.
The communicator requires an AlarmNet account. For new installations, please
obtain the account information from the central station prior to programming.
For control panels that do not support ECP, refer to the installation guide to use Zone
The control panel treats the communicator as an ECP device, so ensure to program
the control panel with the communicator's device address. Refer to the control
panel's Installation and Setup Guide for details.
Honeywell offers secure web based services that enable users to remotely monitor and
control their security system. These web services enable users to; monitor and control
their security system from a website or smartphone, receive email notifications of system
events, and receive event confirmations.
Dealers can enroll their customers for "Remote Services" by using the AlarmNet 360
website. Once enabled, the specific programming fields associated with these features
can be programmed into the communications device either remotely using the AlarmNet
360 website or locally using the 7720P programming tool.
1. Determine Signal Strength and Select a Location
The communicator must be mounted indoors. When choosing a suitable mounting location,
understand that signal strength is very important for proper operation. For most installations
using the internal antenna, mounting the unit as high as practical, and avoiding large metal
components provides adequate signal strength for proper operation.
In this step, you will use the communicator to determine signal strength in order to find a
suitable mounting location.
* LTE-I Initial Power Up: Upon initial power up, the communicator LEDs blink in repeated
sequence from top to bottom indicating network initialization.
Green (REG) Yellow (TX/RX) Red (FAULT)
This sequence may take up to 15 minutes. Do not reset power during this time.
When initialization is complete, the Signal Quality display LEDs will light and the yellow and
red LEDs may blink (per their respective functions).
After initial network setup, subsequent resets or power ups can take up to 90 seconds.
2. Mount and Wire the Communicator
1. Locate the case back over the selected mounting position such that the opening in the case
back is aligned with the wire/cable opening on the mounting surface.
2. Pass the wires/cable through the opening in the case back, or route through the removable
side knockouts located on the back cover. Then secure the case back to the mounting
surface using four screws (supplied). Make the following connections:
VISTA CONTROL PANEL
75 ft (23m)
120 ft (37m)
3. When all wiring has been completed (including the Internet cable if used), attach the case
front. Position the top first, then press the bottom section until it snaps in place. Secure
bottom using the supplied cover screw. (Required for UL installations.)
4. You may power up the communicator and control panel.
3. Connect the Internet Cable
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable (Category 5) to the communicator's RJ45 Ethernet
connector and the other end to the cable/DSL router as shown in the figure.
For UL installations, the Ethernet connection between the communicator and
the router cannot exceed 12 feet. Both units must be located within the
Use a Listed cable/DSL router suited for the application.

FOR USE WITH
Note: Read and follow the RF Exposure notice on the other side.
1. Unpack the communicator and open the case by pushing in the two bottom tabs with a screwdriver
while separating the case front.
2. Temporarily connect the AC transformer or battery to the communicator.
3. Choose the installation site with the best signal strength by observing the signal quality bar
graph. Signal strength should be within 2-5 bars. The best signal strength is usually found at the
highest point in the building, near a window.
4. Mark the location for the communicator.
