GSMX Installation and Setup Guide
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. It can be mounted directly on the control panel or remotely.
The GSMX requires an AlarmNet account. For new
installations, please obtain the account information from the
central station prior to programming this module.
The GSMX communicates with AlarmNet using GSM (Global System for
Mobile) technology utilizing GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) as a
means of data transfer. If the GPRS part of the GSM cellular network is
unavailable, it will attempt to send a transmission via SMS (Short Message
Service) also known as a text message.
SMS has not been evaluated for ULC central station
