I have a couple new old stock Starlink Cells I ran across yesterday in  
the shop.  I could use an RP1CAe2 keypad or better yet a DK1CA keypad.

Anybody want to swap?

Jim

have you had problems with your I-Bridge not working on some cell tower  
clusters?

We've had several clusters here in Kentucky which would not support the  
the feature..

(everything else just not the I-Bridge..)

Are you using the IBridge module with the Starlink radio or are you using t

I presume that when it doesn't work via cellular that you use the computer  
network connection to obtain operation of the IBridge (??) And that

I haven't had one single problem with the Starlink from day one.
I've got one that's been working reliably at a 103db for almost a year now.

 I do live in a very high density Cellular deployment area. Verizon, ATT, T

building around and now I see them on top of telephone poles.

I'm thinking that in the future there will be no need for microwave ovens.  
Just take the food out of the refridge and by the time it gets to the table
 it'll be cooked.

Jim we've tried both AT&T and Verizon which are the primary carriers  
around here..

We are pretty rural,  can be as much as 5-8 miles between towers in a  
good area..

and it seems that the clusters we have the most problem  with are all  
linked with microwave and not optical cable..

My "guess" is the microwave doesn't have the bandwidth to allow that  
feature..

But the Starlink does work better than the TG-1's we had been using..

none of their suggestions worked out..

It does seem that AT&T  is the major problem though..

but with either type  the IBridge is the only problem

everything else works just like normal.

I don't know how important it is to you to have the IBridge working but wou
ld you/ do you ..... consider using the network connection instead of the c
ellular connection?  

I've never used the network connection myself because cellular service is s
o good where I am. I also don't think network transmission is as reliable a
s Cellular, but I'm thinking that if you could make more on the installatio
n job and a greater monthly if you provided your customer with both central
 station monitoring and remote control .... that it might be worth trying t
o use a network connection exclusively.

Also, it just occurred to me ..... have you spoken to ATT? I know that they
 offer an "enhanced" service around here if someone is having a problem wit
h their cellular connection.  
One service is that they provide a "booster" in the home that I believe act
ually picks up the signal from the cellular device and sends it over the in
ternet on what I presume to be VoIP though their modem.

I don't know if this would work with the Starlink or not.

Another thing that is available is an actual Cellular Antenna on the house  
that enhances the signal from the tower. But I've never thoroughly investig
ate that.  

And another question ...... does the IBridge ,,,,, ALWAYS ...... not work ,
,,,, or just in some places?

Howdy Jim,
the areas where we have the most problems with IBridge are signal rich  
(4-5 bars on standard cell phone)  it's just the tower clusters in that  
area seem to be microwave linked..
our techie guy has had several lengthy talks with AT&T.  they generally  
give the impression they "don't give a rats #$%^" if some odd app doesn't  
work, so long as text and voice do..
Rural Ky. USA  is a long way from a Tech heaven..  
a fair percentage of out alarm systems still use POTs lines.. even DSL..
What U-Verse AT&T installs  an outside contractor will most likely have to  
come in to get it working..
The AT&T employees I've crossed paths with are kind of shell shocked..
A large percentage of their regulars were forced to retire due to  
cutbacks, and the remaining ones are over loaded with tech issues they  
just don't have a handle on...
I will say the Verizon guys do a much better job of fixing tech problems  
the first time...

Hi Rocky

I'm assuming that you get more money from a client if you can provide the IBridge service so rather than not sell it at all because of a failure to function via cellular service .......

Again, have you tried to use the IBridge using a network connection rather than cellular?

Jim,  our sales guy says we charge a flat rate for monitoring and  
customer service.

So I'd assume its the same rate with or without the IBridge  feature..

I only know of our techie guy using the network connection for access..

Ok, I just threw them on Fleabay then.

Re: Starlink
Aren't all the Starlink Connects on the Verizon CDMA network?
I thought that CDMA had a sunset date of Dec 2019, but I just heard from  
Napco that the date has been extended through Dec 2022 and that they will  
soon be releasing the LTE version of its communicators.
