ClareOne: Setup with LTE Only

Introduction

When a ClareOne panel is installed without a local network connection, either WiFi or Ethernet, the panel’s LTE/cellular can be activated using FusionPro. This document is meant to guide the installer on how to activate the LTE.

Notes

  • You will need access to the panel’s UUID, ICCID, and IMEI. This information is found on the panel’s label.
  • This is done before powering on the panel. If the panel is already powered on, reset the panel and then follow the instructions to activate LTE/cellular.

To reset the panel:

    1. Tap Settings, and then tap Installer Settings.
    2. Enter the Installer PIN as prompted, and then tap Panel Reset.
    3. Tap Panel Reset to confirm.
      Allow the panel to restart and begin activating LTE/Cellular.
