CDMA L3000

Honeywell’s CDMA-L3 Radio with Verizon 1xRTT technology gives you more choices and lets you reach more customers.

Mobile communications technology continues to evolve and improve. We’re using more and more data on our mobile devices and that’s not going to change. Service providers are well aware of this trend and have ongoing initiatives to build out and improve their networks. And just like your old obsolete flip phone, older networks like 2G have to be decommissioned to make room for faster more reliable systems that can handle the enormous increase in data usage.

As security professionals, you rely on the continuous performance of communications on every installation. We all know about the upcoming 2G sunset and Honeywell has responded with a series of new CDMA radios that will help you continue to provide reliable alarm communications for your customers and uninterrupted RMR for your business.

More Choices and Flexibility
Our latest addition is the CDMA-L3, our first CDMA radio for LYNX Plus (L3000) that resides on the Verizon Network. Now in the United States, on new and existing installations, you have two modern radio communications options: our GSMVLP4G – 4G radio on the AT&T network and the newly launched CDMA-L3 Verizon Network radio.  These two options give you more choices and much more flexibility on every installation helping you land more sales, increase RMR and grow your business.

It’s nice to know no matter where you are, you have a choice when it comes to LYNX Plus radio communications solutions that support Honeywell Total Connect Remote Services and alarm transport.

Save Time with Honeywell SpecWizard

Spec Wizard

SpecWizard helps write CSI Format A&E specifications for access control, video and intrusion solutions.

Are you fed up wasting countless hours copying and pasting multiple product specifications when drafting your master functional specifications? How about the time it takes to index and format your specifications? We have heard it over and over again; there has to be a better and easier way to create multiproduct CSI format functional specifications.

We understand the value of a designer’s time and that the focus needs to be all about the functional design attributes of a specification and not the administrative components. However, the importance of a professional, well-indexed CSI formatted specification can’t be understated. After consulting with professional security designers and channel partners, we came up with the Honeywell SpecWizard, an easy to access Honeywell Security CSI Specification web tool. This new time saving specification tool assists in writing CSI Format A&E specifications for access control, video surveillance, and intrusion system solutions.

Designers can log in anytime, anywhere, select the relevant components required to meet their specific functional requirements and download a multiproduct fully indexed CSI formatted functional specification. The downloads are available in Word, Word Perfect and RTF formats, making it easy to import into office masters or other design documents.

Why not give it a try, and let us know your thoughts?
