Alarm.com recently started offering cellular communicators with IP backup. It's hooked to my router with Ethernet cable. Oddly, there are no active data lights at the Ethernet port. It's the only one the alarm installer has installed so there's no reference point. The monitoring service said they could see both the cellular & IP signals were good.
Nonetheless, I'm not comfortable without any data lights at the port. Tried different ports, not the issue. In the picture, you can see the other three have one or two steady or blinking lights. The top white cable has no lights. Any thoughts on this? Thanks.
No, wasn't really watching the lights while calling the monitoring company but they didn't test it per se, they said they could see it was communicating. Guess the only way to really test it is disconnect the cellular modem and see if it communicates. Unfortunately, the installer doesn't know if that's possible.
