The Resideo PRODCM is a dialer capture module. It allows the newest AlarmNet devices to interface with older alarms via their phone line terminals. The PRODCM replaces the phone connection, then captures signals from the panel and translates them to the LTEM-Px communicator for transmittal.
The Resideo PRODCM allows the Honeywell Home LTEM-PA and LTEM-PV to interface with any alarm panel that can communicate through a phone connection and supports Contact ID reporting format. The PRODCM replaces the panel's wired connection to phone service. It then emulates a phone connection to the panel. As far as the alarm panel knows, it's dialing a phone number and transmitting a signal. The PRODCM captures that signal and translates it into data that the LTEM-PA or LTEM-PV can understand. The communicator then sends the signal on to AlarmNet for processing where it will be sent to a central station.
The phone line connection to the panel traditionally comes in via two (2) wires. These wires are referred to as Tip and Ring. Ring is usually connected using a Red wire and Tip is usually connected using a Green wire. With the PRODCM, these wires are removed from the panel, and the PRODCM is connected in their place via the module's 2-terminal terminal block. The PRODCM emulates a phone line, providing voltage through these terminals to the panel. This is necessary for the panel to believe that an actual phone line is connected. When the panel attempts to dial out, the PRODCM provides it with a dial tone. The panel dials, the PRODCM then provides it with a Contact ID handshake, the panel transmits its signal and the PRODCM then provides it with an acknowledgement, known as a Kiss Off. As long as the panel receives a Kiss Off, it will assume the signal was successfully sent and will then hang up without trying to communicate again.
The PRODCM translates the dialed signal into data that it transmits to the LTEM-PA or LTEM-PV communicator. The communicator will then send the signal to the AlarmNet server via IP or Cellular means. The AlarmNet server will forward the information to the proper destination. The AlarmNet account will be associated with an account at the Central Monitoring Station, where the signal will be received and processed for notification and/or dispatch. This seems like a long and drawn out process, but it all occurs within seconds. If the signal is not able to be sent for any reason and is not acknowledged, the PRODCM won't provide the Kiss Off to the panel, and the panel will continue to redial and send the signal until it is either successful, or it reaches the maximum number of retries. If an acknowledgement is never received for the signal, the PRODCM will drop voltage to the panel's phone line terminals, and if the feature is supported, a Telco Fault will occur on the panel.
The PRODCM is a Plug-In module and is installed within the LTEM-PA or LTEM-PV. In order to install it, the communicator module should be fully powered down first. Power down the unit by removing the red battery lead and unplugging the module's transformer. If you're unsure where the transformer is located, you can turn off power at the breaker. Do not attempt to install the PRODCM while power is applied to the LTEM-PA or LTEM-PV module. Damage to both units may occur. Once the unit is powered down, slide the PRODCM into place. It connects with an edge connector on the upper right side of the board, straight up from the battery location inside the plastic housing. Refer to the Installation Guide for full instructions and panel programming notes.
