GSMBR / iGSMBR Installation and Setup Guide
The KEY uses 256-bit AES (Rijndael) encryption (which is required for certain government
installations). Further, the AlarmNet AES Encryption Software Module Version 1.0
contained in the Honeywell products have NIST approval. Listings for this approval can be

Remote Services

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
Receive email and text message notifications of system events
Control the system and receive confirmations using text messages
Dealers can enroll their customers for "Remote Services" by using the AlarmNet Direct
website. Once enabled, the specific programming fields associated with these features can be
programmed into the communications device either remotely using the AlarmNet Direct
website or locally using the 7720P local keypad programming tool.

Modes of Operation

The communications device provides four modes of operation so it can be used with various
types of control panels, as summarized below:

ECP Mode

This mode is for control panels that support LRR-ECP communication, and provides
2-way communication with the control panel using ECP messaging.
The control panel treats the module as a Long Range Radio (LRR) device, so program the
control panel accordingly, including setting the module's LRR device address.
The module supports two hardwire zone trigger inputs (zones 6 and 7).
Reports are sent in Contact ID format.

Zone Trigger Mode

This mode is for control panels that do not support LRR-ECP communication nor 4204
Relay Modules.
The communications module provides six input zones.
Each zone can be configured for V+, V–, or EOLR triggering.
Each zone can be programmed for inverted operation, delayed reporting, and restoral
Zone 1 input can distinguish between pulsed and steady signals to report fire or burglary
alarms respectively.
Zone 1 can also be programmed to report LYNX panic (if used with LYNX control).
Reports are sent in ADEMCO High-Speed format.

4204 Mode and Two-4204 Mode

This mode is for control panels that do not support LRR-ECP communication, but do
support 4204 Relay Modules.
The module connects to the control panel's keypad terminals.
The control treats the communications module as a 4204 Relay Module(s), so program
the control accordingly. Also set the module's proper 4204 device address.
4204 mode provides up to four zone inputs, plus two optional trigger zones, depending on
the options programmed.
Two-4204 mode provides up to eight zone inputs, depending on options programmed.
Each 4204 zone can be programmed for delayed reporting and restoral reporting.
Reports are sent in ADEMCO High-Speed format.
Certification number 127.
