The GSM Systell X4 Cellular intercom allows a great deal of flexibility:
Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to open your gate for someone and couldn't because you were 15 minutes away at the mall?
Home intercoms have the disadvantage that strangers may try and establish whether you’re home or not. By having your intercom connected to your cell phone will give you an “Always at Home” presence.
More Than Just Another Intercom System
If you can work a cellphone, you can operate and manage the GSM based Systell X4 Cellular Intercom System.
It can be a great addition to your home security. It allows you:
Four trigger inputs. (They can be used for intercom push buttons, or as "alarm" inputs - for example warning you when the gate stands open).
Two relayed outputs. (These are typically used to open the vehicle gate, and perhaps a pedestrian gate).
By utilizing the cellular network, the distance between you and your gate is no longer an obstacle.
You can program two different phone numbers to each push button. The unit will automatically call the second number in case the first number is not available.
Your visitor will be connected to the stored phone number.
During the call with your visitor, you can select whether or not to open the gate.
An event log stores 16000 events as they happen. The log is retrievable via the optional programming cable.
Let's Explore the GSM Systell X4 Inputs:
The GSM Systell X4 Wireless Intercom system allows you to use all four inputs as intercom push buttons.
However, a typical residential home has a need for only one, perhaps two intercom push buttons.
The balance of the inputs need not go to waste; they can be used for other triggers.
This is a great feature... for example, let’s say you use two inputs for your intercom (house and staff), you then have two available to be used as input triggers. You could:
Receive an SMS when the gate opens, or
Receive a SMS if the gate stands open for too long, or
Receive a prerecorded voice message when the fence alarm triggers, etc.
Let's Explore the GSM Systell X4 Outputs:
The GSM Systell X4 Intercom Module has two trigger outputs.
Your gate's trigger would typically be connected to one of them; the other can be used to open a pedestrian gate, or to switch on your security lights, etc.
These are also controlled with free miscalls. You can store up to 1000 cell numbers; authorizing only trusted people to trigger the gate.
What do you need?
A prepaid SIM card (it’s an open system and supports any service provider).
Check on-site signal strength of your preferred service provider before purchasing the unit.
Signal strength can be slightly improved by the external antenna that is supplied with the unit.
The SIM card must be:
have airtime loaded
opted out of PIN number requests, voice mail and call notifications
enabled for number identifying and call initiations
Check the SIM card’s operation by making and receiving a call before inserting into the unit.
What about Installation?
The GSM Systell X4 Module easily connects to a one-, two-, three-, or four buttons conventional Fermax or BPT gate station.
This means that you may connect this to your existing BPT (or Fermax) gate station if you have one in place.
Alternatively, we can supply you with a BPT gate station.
BPT gate stations are easy to use... no need for your visitors to figure out complicated keypads when arriving at your gate; they simply push the required button and wait for you to answer the call.
We recommend that the unit not to be installed near places where strong electromagnetic waves occur (not inside gate motors).
It should also not be installed in watery places or places with high humidity.
Setting up the GSM Systell X4 Intercom System
We will configure the system according to your specific needs and requirements.
This is done by connecting the GSM module to a PC using a specially configured cable and the setup software. (The cable and software is available as an optional extra should you prefer to do the initial settings yourself).
Adding or deleting user numbers in the future is done with SMS commands. For example, a typical SMS command to add someone to your "Trusted List" will look something like this: 2468ADD=+2783O1OO1O1.
