In order to complete an activation of an Alarm.com cellular communicator a cell test must be initiated by the homeowner.  In almost all cases just the Master Code is needed but some panels such as the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 requires the Installer Code to reach the correct menu to trigger the manual communication test.  While Its not a bad idea to trigger a manual test on occasion, Alarm.com will be looking for a successful communication test daily from their communicator (programmed automatically).
