So that a Honeywell Galaxy intrusion panel can communicate with Security Center, the panel must be configured for remote access over Ethernet. This configuration can be done locally by using the panel's keypad or remotely by using the Honeywell Galaxy Remote Servicing Suite (RSS).

Before you begin

Make sure your control panels are functioning properly and have an Ethernet module installed.

What you should know

For detailed information about setting up a panel and configuring it for remote communication, refer to your panel's Installer Manual and the GX Remote Control User Manual, which you can download from http://www.honeywellvideosystems.com/.
IMPORTANT: Content in this guide that references information found on third-party websites was accurate at the time of publication, however, this information is subject to change without prior notice from Genetec Inc.
Tip: If you have the Galaxy RSS software, you can use it instead of the keypad to prepare the panel remotely from a computer.
