29 Menu Mode for IP and GSM Module Programming
This mode is for programming the Internet connectio
n (IP) and optional GSM Module configuration,
collectively referred to as the Internal Device.
NOTE:
The Internal Device is automatically set to addres
s 3 and cannot be changed.
The following section describes the programming of
the Internal Device using an alpha keypad.
Alternatively, these options can be programmed via
the AlarmNet Direct website. After programming is
complete, the
control must be registered
with AlarmNet
via the Internet connection
. Refer to the
Registration with AlarmNet section for procedures.
IMPORTANT:
The use of the IP connection or the VISTA-GSM modul
e requires an AlarmNet–I account.
Please obtain the account information from the cent
ral station prior to programming this module.
Using an Alpha Keypad as a 7720P Programming Tool
When programming IP/GSM features (with

29
menu mode), the alpha keypad mimics the
functions of the 7720P Programming Tool. See
figure at right and table below for 7720P key
functions. Each key has two possible functions: a
normal function and a SHIFT function.
Normal functions:
The numeric values labeled
directly on the keys and the left-hand functions
shown in diagram on the ABC keys. To perform a
normal key function, simply press the desired key.

SHIFT functions:
Those functions shown in
diagram above the numerical keys and the right-
hand functions shown on the ABC keys. To
perform a SHIFT key function, press SHIFT key
(D key), then press the desired function key (shift

function is indicated by the lit READY LED).

5-24 Registering the Control with AlarmNet
The control must be registered with AlarmNet before
internet communication (via IP or GSM) can occur.
To register, the control must be connected to the I
nternet.
Register the control by using one of these methods:

Register by phone
1. Call 1-800-222-6525
You will need the following information:

MAC ID and MAC CRC number (found on the label).

Subscriber information (provided by the central st
ation), including a city code, CSID, and a
subscriber ID.
