PM 45 4G

Dual SIM 4G + IP

The Permaconn solution provides a constant secure link between the supervised premises and the Central Station.

The PM45 4G is a versatile alarm communicator that reports on 4G, 3G and IP to the Central Station.

This communicator can interface with a range of alarm panels using Contact ID. Primary alarm path is IP, followed by 4G/3G in the event of a wired Ethernet failure. The communicator reports on 4G or 3G if there is no IP connected.

Key Features
