What type of installation should I choose: Wi-Fi or GSM subscription?


Link Advanced can be installed and operated in two ways:

  • with the protected home's W-Fi network
  • with the control unit's built-in GSM card

The choice of this communication mode should be determined at the start of the installation.A complete removal of the installation is required to switch from one connection mode to the other. 

GSM installation allows a home without Internet connection (ADSL, Fibre or 4G Box) to be protected. To validate the GSM installation, you will need to take out a €4.99/month mobile network subscription.

What happens to Link Advanced in the event of an Internet outage? 


Link Advanced has a function called “backup network”, which is activated if the system is armed and the Wi-Fi communication mode is off

The back-up network is available for the first 5 years of operation. After this period, if you wish to continue to benefit from the service, you will have to pay a €2.99/month subscription fee.
