GSM-X offers extensive communication functionality and support for multiple communication paths. This device can be used to carry out reporting in alarm systems. For this purpose, it uses a connection established via the dialer of any alarm control panel or its appropriately configured outputs.
An important feature the communicator offers is the expansion capability by adding the GSM-X-ETH Ethernet module, so that reporting can be implemented through two independent channels (Ethernet and GPRS). Thanks to the constant monitoring of the state of connections with the monitoring station and the substitutability of transmission paths, the stringent requirements of EN 50136 for DP4 category are complied with, regarding the so-called Dual Path Reporting.
GSM-X offers notification of up to 8 users in several ways: by using voice, SMS or PUSH messages, or via the CLIP service.
As for the INTEGRA and INTEGRA Plus control panels, connection with them can be via RS-232. Thus, GSM-X will perform reporting and notification (in INTEGRA Plus), the content is downloaded from the list of events), and will establish remote connection with DLOADX and GUARDX programs.
The module has the function that automatically switches communication over to the GSM path in the event of the analog telephone line failure. GSM-X can also act as a GSM gateway for private branch exchanges (PBX).
The device has 4 programmable outputs that can be remotely controlled using SMS, CLIP, DTMF, GX CONTROL mobile application or GX Soft configuration software. That enables GSM-X to be used for remote control of the alarm system or other connected devices.
A computer with the GX Soft program installed is used for programming and configuration. The computer can connect to the module locally, after connecting it to the module mini-USB port, or remotely, by connecting to the device via GPRS or Ethernet*.
Remote update of the device firmware is possible thanks to GSM-X capability of interacting with the UpServ program.
The built-in GSM telephone has slots for two SIM cards. If any problems occur with the range of the first card operator’s network, the module will automatically switch to the other one to maintain uninterrupted communication.
