GSMX Installation and Setup Guide

General Information
The GSMX GSM Communicator (also herein referred to as the module) easily connects to your security system's control panel and sends alarms and messages to AlarmNet for subsequent transfer to the central monitoring station. It can be mounted directly on the control panel or remotely. The GSMX requires an AlarmNet account. For new installations, please obtain the account information from the central station prior to programming this module. The GSMX communicates with AlarmNet using GSM (Global System for Mobile) technology utilizing GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) as a means of data transfer. If the GPRS part of the GSM cellular network is unavailable, it will attempt to send a transmission via SMS (Short Message Service) also known as a text message.

ULC

Supervision and Fault Detection
• Network communication failure – In the event the AlarmNet network does not hear a supervisory message from the module within a specified time (“Supervision” option, 24 hours, 30 days, or none), AlarmNet notifies the central station of a communication failure. Communication path failure – In the event the module detects a communication path failure, the control panel can be notified of a trouble condition with the module after a specified time has elapsed.

Specifications
Dimensions Input Voltage Standby Current Transmit Current Transceiver Type 4 x 7 x 1.75 inches 12VDC (powered via the ECP bus.) 30mA 200mA (Average) GSM/GPRS with internal antenna

Data Encryption
This module supports private key encryption. Private Key encryption means that both the sender and the receiver know the KEY used to encrypt the data. Each device produced by Honeywell is loaded with a unique identifier called a MAC number, and a large random number or KEY. This KEY and MAC number are also stored in the AlarmNet servers. When a device contacts AlarmNet, it sends the MAC number followed by the message that is encrypted using the KEY data. The server looks up the MAC number and uses the KEY associated with it to decrypt the message. The KEY uses 256-bit AES (Rijndael) encryption (which is required for certain government installations). Further, the AlarmNet AES Encryption Software Module Version 1.0 contained in the Honeywell products have NIST approval. Listings for this approval can be found at http://csrc.nist.gov/cryptval/aes/aesval.html Certification number 127.

Remote Services Features

Remote Access and Multi-Mode have not been evaluated by UL.

Honeywell offers secure web based services that enable users to remotely monitor and control their security system. These web services enable users to: –2–

GSMX Installation and Setup Guide • • • Monitor and control their security system from a website Receive e-mail and text message notifications of system events Control the system and receive confirmations using text messages

Dealers can enroll their customers for "Remote Services" by using the AlarmNet Direct website. Once enabled, the specific programming fields associated with these features can be programmed into the communications device either remotely using the AlarmNet Direct website or locally using the 7720P programming tool. E-mail notification (Multi Mode) is intended as a convenience for the user, and does not replace Central Station reporting of critical events (alarms, troubles, etc.).

Testing the System
After installation the security system should be tested. Refer to the control panel installation instructions for procedures to test the entire system.

Compatibility
The GSMX functions with any control panel that utilizes a Honeywell ECP bus and supports Long Range Radio.

Compliance
This device has been tested by ETL to meet the following standards: • UL985 – Residential Fire • UL1023 – Residential Burg

Mounting and Wiring the Module
Select a Mounting Location
When choosing a suitable mounting location, understand that it must be mounted indoors, and for best signal strength it should be mounted vertically. Signal strength is very important for proper operation. For most installations, mounting the unit on the control panel provides adequate signal strength and we suggest that this method is tried first. Especially if the control panel is not in a basement location or in an area that contains large metal objects. If the control panel location does not provide adequate signal strength, then the module can be mounted remotely.

–3–

GSMX Installation and Setup Guide

NOTE: The SIM in the communications module must be ACTIVATED first in order for signal strength to be determined. Once the module is installed and programmed, it must be Registered with AlarmNet. Registering activates the account with AlarmNet and enables the security system's control panel to send reports.

Activating the SIM
Go to: https://services.alarmnet.com/AlarmNetDirect/ If you are not signed up for this service, click on “Dealer Signup” from the login screen to set up your dealer account. You will be instructed how to proceed upon completing the sign-up form. Only one sign-up per dealer is required. Once an initial user is established, additional logins may be created by that user. Log in and follow the on-screen prompts. At this time only activate the SIM so signal strength may be checked. DO NOT register the module at this time. Please have the following information available to activate the SIM: • MAC number and MAC CRC (located on outside of box and on label inside module).

You may log out of the AlarmNet Direct website. Once the module is installed and programmed, it must be Registered with AlarmNet. Registering activates the account with AlarmNet and enables the security system's control panel to send reports.

Verifying Satisfactory Signal Strength
NOTE: In this procedure you will temporarily power up the communications module to check for satisfactory signal strength. You can power it from a 12V battery or from the control panels AUX PWR terminals. In buildings where reception may be a problem, powering from a battery would allow the module to be portable. The following procedure assumes the control panel will be used for power. If satisfactory signal strength is present at the control panel that is the preferred mounting location. 1. Ensure power to the control panel (both AC and battery) is off. Open the enclosure and connect the ECP cable to the GSMX module. Temporarily attach the Black and Red wires to the GND and AUX PWR terminals of the control panel. DO NOT connect the Yellow and Green wires at this time. Turn power on and wait about one minute for the module to initialize. Position the module near a suitable mounting position.

Using the Control Panel
Some control panels support programming of the communications module through the control panel programming mode. If using this method of programming, only the ECP Mode programming options are available. Other "mode" prompts will not be displayed, and the mode cannot be changed. For a description of key functions on the control panel keypad, and how they map to the 7720P programming tool, refer to the control panel's Programming Guide.

Programming for ECP Mode
ECP mode enables the control panel to communicate with the module via the ECP bus. Control panels that support this bus and have the LRR (Long Range Radio) enabled, send Contact ID format alarms to the module over the ECP bus. Not all control panels support the LRR interface on ECP, so be sure to check the control panel's Installation and Setup Guide to see if it supports this feature.

ULC

Only ECP Mode has been approved for ULC installations.

Press the [ENTER] key to begin programming.

NOTE: The central station can remotely block access to local device programming. If this has been done, prompt on the right appears.

Access to Prog Mode Denied

The default programming values for each prompt are shown in parentheses in the PROMPTS column. Further, the table below shows all the prompts for this programming mode. Depending on your answers, unnecessary prompts will be bypassed and you will advance to the next appropriate prompt.

Programming for 4204 and Two-4204 Emulation Modes
In this mode the communications module emulates a 4204 module (or two) and appears to the control panel as a 4204 module. If two 4204s are enabled in the communications module, it acts as two 4204s using consecutive device addresses. The compatible Honeywell VISTA series or First Alert control panel sends data (triggers) to the communications module as if it were a 4204 module. (The control panel must be configured to recognize one or two 4204 relay modules accordingly.) On VISTA-32FB (or higher) control panels and First Alert equivalents, addresses 6 and 13 should not be used when the secondary 4204 is enabled. Messages are sent in ADEMCO High-Speed format. NOTE: See your control panel Installation and Setup Guide for the number of 4204 modules supported.

4204 Emulation Mode Options
For control panels that do not support LRR-ECP communication, the 4204 Emulation modes provide a means of sending up to eight unique reports based on defined system conditions. In 4204 mode, the communications module functions as a logical 4204 Relay Module, where each relay number, referred to in the module as zone number, can be programmed to send a report based on the output function programmed in the control for that relay. Each relay-zone can also be programmed to send a restore message of the reported condition, can be set to delay transmission of messages, and can be programmed to send reports only when a conditional zone is triggered (armed). In single 4204 mode, the module supports up to four relay-zones. In Two4204 mode, the module functions as two 4204 modules, supporting up to eight relay-zones. Refer to the following table.

– 11 –

GSMX Installation and Setup Guide

4204 Relay Outputs map to zones First 4204 Zones (device address entered in Prompt 15): Relay 1 = Zone 1 Relay 2 = Zone 2 Relay 3 = Zone 3 Relay 4 = Zone 4 or conditional zone trigger if “report only if armed” is selected in any zone 1-3 when using single 4204 mode. NOTE: Zone 4 status is not reported when being used as the conditional (armed) trigger zone. Second 4204 Zones (device address entered in Prompt 15, plus 1): Relay 1 = Zone 5 Relay 2 = Zone 6 Relay 3 = Zone 7 Relay 4 = Zone 8 or conditional zone trigger if “report only if armed” is selected in any zone 1-7 when using Two-4204 mode. NOTE: Zone 8 status is not reported when being used as the conditional (armed) trigger zone or if tamper reporting is enabled.

When using the module in 4204 Emulation Mode, DO NOT enable the LongRange Radio module in control panel programming. Instead, enable 4204 relay module address(es) and program the appropriate relay activation functions for the relay-zones being used. In some control panels, it is called “relay programming” and in others it is called “output device programming.” It is recommended that “close and stay closed” (usually choice 2) action is selected. Selection of momentary activation will cause the communications module to generate an alarm and NOT a restore, even if the module is programmed to send a restore for the given zone. In 4204 mode, messages are reported in ADEMCO High-Speed format. Zone alarms (status 7) are reported with “1” (alarm) or “3” (restore) displayed in the zone position for the respective zone (e.g. alarm on zone 2: 5155 5555 7; restore 5355 5555 7). A supervision fault trouble message is automatically sent if the module detects no activity on its connection to the control. The message is: 5555 5515 5; restore message is: 5555 5535 5.

GSMX Installation and Setup Guide

Registering the Module
Once you have programmed the GSMX, it must be registered to enable the AlarmNet account. Registering the communications module activates the account with AlarmNet and enables the security system's control panel to send reports. You can register by using one of the following methods: • AlarmNet Direct website • 7720P Programming Tool

• Test Message/Registration switch • Phone The top display LED will indicate the module's registration status as follows: (Refer to the Summary of Connections topic.)
LED REG (green) Indication ON – Module is NOT registered with AlarmNet. OFF – Module is registered with AlarmNet.

You can monitor the registration process by viewing the display LEDs. The TX/RX (yellow) LED and the REG (green) LED will blink slowly in unison while registration is in progress. When the registration successfully completes, the GSMX enters a normal operating mode; the REG (green) LED goes out and the TX/RX (yellow) LED is lit to indicate that the power-on / reset message is waiting to be sent. This message will appear at the receiving station as “E339 803”. The description may read “Trouble – Exp. Mod. Reset”. If registration is not validated within 90 seconds, the GSMX times out, and the REG (green) LED will be lit solid.

Registering through the AlarmNet Direct Website
To register the module via the website, go to: https://services.alarmnet.com/AlarmNetDirect Log in and follow the on-screen prompts. If you are not signed up for this service, click on “Dealer Signup” from the login screen to create an account. You will be instructed how to proceed upon completing the sign-up form. Only one sign-up per dealer is required. Once an initial user is established, additional logins may be created by that user. NOTE: Central Stations can sign up by contacting AlarmNet Support at 800-222-6525 and selecting option 1. Please have the following information available: • • • • Primary City ID (two-digit number). Primary Central Station ID (two-digit hexadecimal number). Primary Subscriber ID (four-digit number). MAC ID and MAC CRC number (located on outside of box and on label inside module). – 20 –

GSMX Installation and Setup Guide After the communications module is registered, you may log out of the AlarmNet Direct website.

Remote Services
The dealer/installer will set up the customer account and define the events to be notified of. These events match the output relay triggering events that were programmed in the control panel. NOTE: At the AlarmNet Direct website, refer to the online "AlarmNet Direct User Guide" for information on configuring the hardware and creating a Total Connect web account for the customer. Once the dealer assigns a login name and password, the customer will receive a “Welcome” e-mail message with their login name along with some helpful information. The customer will receive another e-mail message with their password. They will then be able to receive notifications, and access their system via the Total Connect website or using their cell phone/PDA that supports GSM/GPRS and Text Messaging (SMS).

Registering Using the Test Message/Registration Switch
Initiate the registration sequence by clicking the TEST MESSAGE/REGISTRATION switch three times.

Registering Using the Programming Tool
The interactive registration feature allows the installer to register the GSMX through a series of keyboard commands on the 7720P Programming Tool. This method of registration lets the installer monitor the registration process. Registering … Once the installation is complete, press the [Shift] plus the up arrow [↑] on the 7720P.
