You can add the HKC GSM-WIFI card to your alarm system in order to communicate with the system using your phone. When the alarm system is triggered the dialler uses the Securecomm service to send a text, voice message, or push notification to whichever phones you like.
This device can also be used to connect to central station monitoring if required. The device can avail of 2 paths to send signals by using its embedded sim card or the wifi in your home. It will choose the best signal and if that fails it will switch to the other path.
The GSM/GPRS unit is supplied with a pre-fitted World SIM that will only work with that device. The unit communicates with SecureComm - HKC's cloud based solution via the HKC APP and SmartLink700 software. SecureComm provides a heartbeat (polled) connection to the GSM-SC which will signal a loss of communication in the event of an interruption in the GPRS signal. All alarms and alerts are notified to the user via the Smartphone APP (audible and text).
The GSM-WIFI can also send and recieve text messages either to communicate alarm events or to allow the user to arm/disarm the system from a mobile phone.
A typical text message sent might be:
Alarm zone 3 patio door.
333 Main St Terenure.
Fri 31th December 2008.
The device has jam detection which triggers the alarm system in the event of gsm jamming devices being deployed by the burglars.
