Our basic GSM Auto Alarm Dialer is ideal for this application. As a minimum it requires only 3 connections to the panel PCB (+VE, 0V and Bell -) and may fit within your alarm enclosure. If there is no space then your can use the external enclosure available on our dialer page. If set/unset control and silencing are both require the C4 unit available here (GSM Control and Monitoring System) is required.
You can also connect the three wires to the communicator connection (centre left) using the 13V, 0V and COMMS terminals as above however this will require the engineer to active these terminals within your panel interface.
To set the system up for basic operation will then require just two messages to be sent to the SIM card number:
master <your number no spaces within the number>. e.g. master 07830111222.
callnumA <recipient number>. e.g. callnuma 07574222333
textnumA <recipient>. For anyone wanting a text message when the alarm sounds.
We strongly recommend adding a textnum as, should there be a fault or network error at the first attempt and texting, the system will continue to try to send the message until it is sent.
Input B can be connected to the SET terminal next to the BELL – terminal. This allows you to see if the alarm is SET and will notify you of this when it changes state. You may wish to setup CALLNUMA(s) for the alarm so it dials only when the alarm sound and have seperate TEXTNUMA and TEXTNUMB if you use the input B for this purpose.
There are two methods of wiring the Advent Controls GSM dialler in order to set the system remotely. The recommended means of wiring the dialler is in ‘Push-To-Set’ mode. The COM and NO terminals are connected to a zone (we recommend zone 8). The zone is then set up as a PTS zone. A call or SMS reading OPEN will set the alarm. The alarm cannot be unset in this mode.
The output relay on the GSM Dialler can be wired to remotely set and unset the alarm panel. In this case the COM and NC connections are used for the connection to zone 8. To set the alarm the word ON is sent in a SMS text. To unset the alarm the word OFF is sent in a text. The zone should be set as a keyswitch input. We strongly recommend the SET terminal is monitored by input B when controlling the alarm in this mode.
Further details can be found on page 6 of the G3 installation manual.
