GEM420 4G Router and Public Fixed IP SIM for CCTV

Thanks for viewing our page to describe the 4G router and Fixed IP SIM Card solution you need for the SIMPLE WAY to provide a 4G solution for easy access to your CCTV installation.

All you need is a Proroute® GEM420® M2M 4G Router and a Fixed IP SIM Card service.

Let’s take a look at the router first of all.

GEM420 4G Router for CCTV

It comprises a robust metal casing, with 2 x antennas for cellular connectivity (that’s your 3G / 4G mobile broadband service) and 2 x WiFi Antennas if you want to connect to the router via WiFi.  It has 4 x Ethernet Ports so you can connect to your devices with an Ethernet cable.  In many cases you would connect this to your POE switch because many CCTV installations use IP cameras that may be powered using a POE switch.  In fact the Ethernet ports and router functionality are just like ANY router – so don’t overthink it – the only thing different is that it connects to the INTERNET using 3G/4G instead of a telephone cable.

The GEM420 4G Router is priced at £189.00 (plus £8.00 carriage plus VAT).

Now – all you need to do to complete your solution is to sign up for a Fixed IP SIM Card contract and once you receive your SIM card, insert it into the router and with a few minutes of configuration your are ready to go.

We have listed below the different Fixed IP SIM Card options and you only need to know a few pieces of information to determine which tariff to use.

  1. Which networks have good signal strength in the location you intend to use your 4G router.  You can use your mobile phone to check this or if you are going to have lots of 4G CCTV installations you can purchase a signal checker like the Dycon D2377 4G Signal Analyser which will tell you the available 3G and 4G networks in your location.
  2. Once you know which networks are available you need to decide whether you want 3G or 4G – the main difference is speed, 3G is slower and 4G is faster – also 4G data plans tend to have more inclusive data plans so even if you only have a 3G signal but you need alot of inclusive data then you can use a 4G SIM in your 4G router, and if 4G is not available it will connect at 3G.
  3. Once you know your network and whether you want 3G or 4G simply choose how much inclusive data you want.  We can’t tell you how much you will use – however as a rule of thumb a one and a half hour Netflix movie will use around 2GB of data at standard quality, but if you watch the same movie in HD then it might be double or triple that – so you need to find out what streaming quality / codec your IP camera’s / DVR / NVR uses and with help from your camera hardware provider work out what an hour of remote viewing or downloading of files will be.
  4. If you go over your inclusive data allowance then you will be charged around £14 per GB (if differs slightly depending upon the network or plan but you will see the overuse charges listed below) so if you think you are going to use 4 or 5GB per month it would be worthwhile getting an 8GB SIM which is only slightly more expensive than paying overage charges.
  5. You get access to the SIM Management portal so you can see how much data you use and you can set alerts to send you an email when you reach 80% or 90% of your inclusive data to help you manage the data use.
  6. The SIM Card WILL NOT stop working once it reaches it’s inclusive data allowance – and for CCTV you would not want it to.
  7. Finally you need to decide who is going to pay the bill, if you are the CCTV installer then you will probably want the SIM card contract to be in your customer’s name – so you will need to get their details.
  8. Once you have decided and have all the details, give us a call and tell us or drop us an email and we will send over the Fixed IP SIM card contract for you to complete – this includes a direct debit mandate – you will need to complete all pages and then scan them and email them back.  Once we receive the completed SIM contract your order will be processed and the SIM card dispatched within one or two working days.
  9. Once you receive the SIM you insert it into your router and can visit our GEM420 Fixed IP SIM Card configuration page which will guide you step by step to configure your router and get your 4G CCTV installation up and running.

Fixed IP SIM Cards with Public IP For Use With 4G CCTV Solution

Here are the Fixed IP SIM Card data plans so you can decide which plan you want.  Please note that these have a Public IP address so your router is available to connect to on the Internet – the GEM420 has a built-in firewall to protect from unauthorised use but if you need a more secure solution then you can have the same router and SIM card plan but ask for a PRIVATE IP address – There will be a £50.00 or £250.00 set up charge for the private IP Fixed IP SIM Card – click here and this will all be explained.
