GSMX Installation and Setup Guide General Information The GSMX GSM Communicator (also herein referred to as the module) easily connects to your security system's control panel and sends alarms and messages to AlarmNet for subsequent transfer to the central monitoring station.
KEY used to encrypt the data. Each device produced by Honeywell is loaded with a unique identifier called a MAC number, and a large random number or KEY. This KEY and MAC number are also stored in the AlarmNet servers.
After installation the security system should be tested. Refer to the control panel installation instructions for procedures to test the entire system. Compatibility The GSMX functions with any control panel that utilizes a Honeywell ECP bus and supports Long Range Radio. Compliance This device has been tested by ETL to meet the following standards: •...
Ensure power to the control panel (both AC and battery) is off. Open the enclosure and connect the ECP cable to the GSMX module. Temporarily attach the Black and Red wires to the GND and AUX PWR terminals of the control panel. DO NOT connect the Yellow and Green wires at this time.
Ensure power to the control panel (both AC and battery) is off, then remove the knockout on the top right of the control panel cabinet. Open the GSMX cover. Remove the Hole Cap attached to the plastic (trim as necessary), and snap it into the top opening of the enclosure.
Open the GSMX cover. Remove the Hole Cap attached to the plastic (trim as necessary), and snap it into the top opening of the enclosure. Secure the enclosure to the wall using both mounting holes.
GSMX Installation and Setup Guide Connect the ECP cable to the GSMX circuit board. When mounting the GSMX off the cabinet, the length of the supplied ECP cable will have to be spliced to a four-wire extender cable. Ensure the splices are located within the GSMX's enclosure.
ECP cable wiring. Secure the wiring with ties as necessary. Programming the Module The GSMX requires an AlarmNet account. For new installa- tions, please obtain the account information from the central station prior to programming this module. You can program the communications module by one of the following methods: •...
GSMX Installation and Setup Guide Using the 7720P Programming Tool Ensure the GSMX is powered, and connect the 7720P Programming Tool. TEST MESSAGE/REGISTRATION Switch Each key has two possible functions; a Normal function and a Shift function. • To perform a Normal key function, simply press the desired key.

GSMX Installation and Setup Guide Programming Options NOTE: The default programming values are listed in the prompts below. PROMPTS ENTRY OPTIONS DESCRIPTION [Y], [N] Enters programming mode. Strt Prog Mode? (Y/N)_ [0-9, A-F, If a password has been previously Enter N, S, T, X, assigned, this prompt appears.
GSMX Installation and Setup Guide PROMPTS ENTRY OPTIONS DESCRIPTION [Y], [N] If a password has already been Change Password? assigned, this prompt appears after pressing [N] at the (Y/N)_ "Program Device?" prompt. Press [Y] if you want to change the password.
When programming the GSMX, at prompt #10, choose 4204-Sourced so the user can be notified of up to four events, or choose 2-4204-Sourced so the user can be notified of up to eight system events.
• Remote Access must be enabled by selecting "Enabled" at the Remote Access prompt. • A keypad address must be enabled in the GSMX in order for the module to communicate with the control panel. • At the “Keypad Type” prompt, select the appropriate Keypad.
GSMX Installation and Setup Guide PROMPTS ENTRY OPTIONS DESCRIPTION • 30 Day The AlarmNet network must hear Supervi- sion at least one supervisory message • 24 Hour from the module during this • None supervision period; otherwise, Hours)_ AlarmNet notifies the central station that a communication failure has occurred.
Exiting Programming Mode topic. ECP Status Codes The GSMX sends status messages to the control panel to report various failures. Some control panels, (e.g., VISTA-10P, VISTA-15P and VISTA-20P Series) display these status codes on the keypad as “LngRng Radio” followed by a 4-digit code.
If critical configuration changes were made, such as the mode of operation, the GSMX will reset to ensure that the programming features are enabled. If the file is not successfully uploaded, one of the following prompts will be displayed.
“E339 803”. The description may read “Trouble – Exp. Mod. Reset”. If registration is not validated within 90 seconds, the GSMX times out, and the REG (green) LED will be lit solid. Registering through the AlarmNet Direct Website To register the module via the website, go to: https://services.alarmnet.com/AlarmNetDirect...
REGISTRATION Switch Registering Using the Programming Tool The interactive registration feature allows the installer to register the GSMX through a series of keyboard commands on the 7720P Programming Tool. This method of registration lets the installer monitor the registration process.
The registration message is sent and the unit waits for Registering acknowledgement. … If the PIN is valid, the new GSMX is registered and the old Registration unit unregistered. Additionally, AlarmNet sends a SUCCESS substitution alarm to the central station.
GSMX Installation and Setup Guide Registering by Phone You can register the module by calling the AlarmNet Support at 1-800-222- 6525 (Option 1). You will need the following information: • MAC ID and CRC (located on outside of box and on label inside module).

NOTE: For UL, downloading may only be performed if a technician is at the site. The GSMX can be used to provide high-speed up/downloading to control panels (that support this feature) over the GPRS network via ECP communication. This allows site maintenance independent of central station monitoring, and modification to sites globally.
