A5 GSM Fire/Burglar Alarm Communicator Auto-Dialer and SMS Sender (SIM Card)
The A5 GSM Alarm Dialer is ideal for use in Burglar or Fire Alarms as a universal fit cellular phone (GSM) Auto-Dialer/SMS Message Sender (mobile phone based dialler). It allows remote home/business security monitoring without a phone line.
With 2 inputs both the intruder alarm bell and set/unset status can be monitored. Similarly on fire panels the fire alarm bell and fault output can be monitored. If the alarm is triggered a user customisable SMS message can be sent to up to 500 numbers. Additionally up to 500 numbers can be called to instantly alert users to the alarm sounding.
Emails can also be sent when either input is triggered along with SIM card balance and allowance information.

Anything else I need to know?
All PCBs are supplied with a quad band stub antenna and a PCB to aerial connector cable (~15cm long). Anrtennas should be mounted outside of metallic enclosures. The PCB connector is a U.FL connector and the aerial connector is a standard GSM SMA connector shown below (should an extension cable be required).
Our optional sticky backed antenna makes installation quick and simple however this can only be mounted on non-metallic thin surfaces. Various antennas are available from our wesbite - please see 'Accessories'.
When deciding on which network to use we recommend that you search on the network provider home page to ensure you will receive a good signal in your geographic location. Please note GSM products do not work with 3G only networks such as 'Three'.
