Note: App requires compatible alarm system to function. See below for more information.
The Myalarm SMS Control App allows you to easily create and save SMS templates which can then be sent your security system to arm or disarm areas, operate outputs, unlock doors, check SIM balance or to check system status.
This means you will have the ability remotely control your system anywhere you have mobile coverage. Each template can be given a unique and descriptive name simplifying operation, and for further peace of mind, a confirmation SMS message can be sent by your alarm system to your phone if requested.
Multiple sites or alarm systems can be setup with their own unique templates allowing you to control your home, office, holiday home or other buildings with the one app.
Your alarm system may be able to be configured to automatically check the balance of it's SIM card on a regular basis and to notify you when a recharge is required.
SIM balance checking is different for nearly all telco providers and therefore you will need to check with them to see how to set this up on your alarm system.
A number of default setups for selected telcos have been provided. Please read the associated help information for each field before constructing the SIM balance template. This feature is provided to assist you to set up balance checking. We cannot guarantee that your telco will not change these options or the way you request your SIM balance in the future. If in doubt please check with your telco.
NOTE The SIM Balance Feature Is Only Available In Panel Version V2.10 Or Higher:
The App and integrated GSM module are currently only compatible with the panels listed below. Some features including SIM balance checking may require a panel firmware upgrade. If you do not have one of the systems listed then do not download the App as it currently will only work on these systems.
* Bosch - Solution 144 Alarm Panel
* Bosch - Solution 6000 Alarm Panel
* Digiflex - Vision-X Alarm Panel
Note: The App makes use of your devices ability to send and receive SMS messages and as such you will need to make sure you device has this capability.
For the SMS Control App to function correctly a number of parameters must be configured in your alarm system including setting up the SMS Control options in MENU 6-5-6. Your system must be fitted with the integrated 2G or 3G GSM radio interface module and you need to know the GSM phone number of the SIM card installed in the radio before you can configure the app.
Third party modules are not compatible.
If you are in doubt how to set these options contact your security professional for assistance.
