What is it?

This menu option allows you to set up the sending of customised SMS messages whenever an auxillary input is triggered.

 

Adding Aux Triggered SMS Alerts

To add a new aux alert, select Aux Triggered SMS Alerts from the main options menu. From here, click the green ADD AUX ALERT button at the bottom of the screen.

On the next page, select the aux input you would like to trigger to send the message. Next, select how you want the system to interpret a trigger - this can be set up one of two ways:

  • When normally open contacts go closed: Use this if you want the message to be sent when the aux contacts are shorted (the circuit is made).
  • When normally closed contacts go open: Use this if you want the message to be sent when the aux contacts are opened (the circuit is broken).

You will also need to enter a trigger delay. This is how many seconds you want the aux input to be triggered for before the message is sent. For example, if you set this to 5 seconds and your trigger is normally open go closed, when the aux input is shorted for 5 continual seconds, the message will be sent.

Next, enter the message you want to be sent when this happens. For example, your message might read 'Your gates have been open for an extended time'. The message is identical for all recepients.

Finally, enter the phone numbers that will be recieving this message. If you need to send to more than 3 numbers, you can click the green + arrow to add another number. You can do this up to a maximum of 10 numbers.

Once you have filled in all the required info, click the green ‘SEND COMMAND’ button at the bottom of the screen. You will then be taken to your SMS app with a text pre-generated to be sent.
