Cytech is  pleased to announce that the new UCM/GSM2 module is now available. The new module has all the capabilities of the old UCM/GSM but at a much lower cost.
We intend to make the GSM interface a mainstream option which will be used in most systems. The features of the GSM module include;

  • Acts as a backup for dial-out on alarm activation when the land line is faulty or cut. Alternately, it can be used without a fixed telephone line, for installations where a telephone line is not available or not desired. Comfort's dialler can dial to 8 telephones which can include mobile or landline phones, pagers or Central Monitoring Stations.
  • Allows the user to dial to the GSM number instead of the fixed telephone line to access Comfort Voice menus. There is no voicemail on this line.
  • Allows Comfort to report alarms to the users cellular phones via text message or SMS (Short Message Service). The SMS message will show the alarm type and Zone description as text.
  • Allows users to send commands to control home appliances and the security system via SMS, and receive acknowledgement of the command by return SMS.
Note that UCM/GSM2 is compatible with Comfort II only, and not Comfort I

Important Note:
The GSM network is subject to delays in the voice transmissions which may cause problems in dialing to Central Monitoring Stations which expect very tight limits on the delays between signalling tones. The UCM/GSM should not be relied on for the purpose of dialing to a CMS Receiver

The UCM/GSM does not act as a stand-alone mode. It needs to be connected to Comfort in order for it to work. The telephone numbers and behaviour are controlled by Comfort. What is your application, may I ask

Am I missing something here; the old GSM module was around £300 and so is the new one so where does the lower cost thing come in?  

Surely to be attractive this module needs to be down in the UCM price range of around £150 to be more mainstream in the user base?

Hi please can you tell me how deep the module is? I need to work out whether I will be able to fit it (piggy backed) in front of my door station module or whether I need to buy a new enclosure.

Thanks

Graham

It consists of a piggy back PCB with a SIM card on top of a UCM, the height is less than a UCM/Ethernet, slightly more than a UCM/CBUS
