Wiring the Advent Controls GSM Alarm Dialer and SMS sender to the Castle Care 1600 Alarm panel is straight forward. The bell -ve connection on the panel is used to trigger input A. The OUT terminal on the alarm panel is used to send a SMS text informing the users when the alarm has been set, unset or both (if desired).
To customise the input alarm message the programmer should send to the dialer:
CustomAL The alarm is sounding. (don’t forget the full stop!)
If desired a message can be sent when the alarm stops sounding as follows:
Firstly set inlevela to both so a message is sent when the alarm starts and stops:
Next the alarm stopping message should be set up:
customAH The alarm has be deactivated. (don’t forget the ‘.’)
If using input B for set/unset notifications you may wish to separate the numbers that receive each message. You do this by sending the alarm alert message recipients as textnumA:
textnuma <alarm recipient 1>.
textnuma <alarm recipient 2>. and so on…
For the people who would like to know when the alarm is armed/disarmed you would set as follows:
textnumb <armed recipient 1>. …and so on
You should also separate the callnumA and callnumBs too.
From the above diagram we can see the OUT voltage goes LOW (0v) when set therefore to customise the input B message you send the following text:
custombL The system is armed.
custombH The system has been disarmed.
Again you will need to send inlevelb both to receive both messages.
You will also need to tell the alarm panel to output the Set/Unset signal using command 50
