Thread: POTS module question

    POTS module question

    I have a unlocked 2gig go control with a pots module installed.
    Is there any way to use it without monitoring service, just to get a phone call from the system on my cellphone when the alarm is triggered and be able to arm and disarm thru the phone line.

    I would also like to be able to call in and arm or disarm the system or hear status options, all without a monitoring plan.

    For what you want, no.

    Its possible though if you add your number in the Q CS#1 and CS#2, and enable POTS features you may get panel to call, but you won't know what its for, or be able to differentiate between troubles, system trouble events, alarms, supervisories, malfunctions, etc

    Pots monitoring runs $7-$14/month (may or may not require contract), basic service, no automation features.

    If you get a cellular module, you can self monitor (emails/notifications), and arm/disarm, use mobile/online remote interactive services and empower home automation, cameras. Runs around $14-$19/month no contracts

    Pots module correction

    With a pots module you would be able to dial into the phone line attached to the panel and with the correct access code send remote commands over the phone, arm,disarm etc...

    Setting your number in the CS Q's would result in the panel calling numerous times. Ryan @ Suretycam explains it like so:

It keeps trying over and over again because your cell phone isn't an alarm signal receiver so it can't receive and acknowledge the signals properly.

    I would also like to be able to call in and arm or disarm the system or hear status options, all without a monitoring plan.

    It was a function that was available during the earlier days of 2gig, going back to like 1.8, I looked into a little further and I found this in the archives, I would try it and see good luck

    Please let us know your outcome

    Q-42 Select remote control phone (0-3)
    DEFAULT: Data and voice (3)
    This setting controls remote telephone access to the system.
    The data option is for the installer. It allows access for programming and operating
    the system with custom PC downloader software.
    The voice option is for the subscriber. It allows the subscriber to call the system
    from an off-site phone, to get the status of the system, and to perform remote
    commands. These commands are executed by entering touch tones. The status
    is reported back via voice prompts. A valid User Code is required for remote
    telephone access. The user will be able to perform the following functions: arm
    in any mode, disarm, bypass, get system status, and turn on or turn off the open
    collector output.
    If voice access is enabled, to connect to the panel, the subscriber will need to call
    the telephone number that the Control Panel is connected to, wait for one or two
    rings, then hang up. The subscriber needs to call again, within 10-45 seconds,
    and the Control Panel will answer the call.
    When the panel answers the phone, the user will be prompted to enter their code.
    If a valid code is entered, the system will announce the current system status. If
    an invalid code is entered, the panel will ask for the code again. After two invalid
    attempts, the panel will disconnect. After two calls, with two invalid attempts each,
    the panel will lock out. The lock out will last for 30 minutes.
    • The default (3) enables data and voice access.
    • For data only (PC downloader) access, select (1).
    • For voice access only, select (2).
    • To disable remote access, select (0).
    REMOTE CONTROL PHONE MODE
    (0) disabled (no remote control phone)
    (1) data only
    (2) voice only
    (3) data and voice
    TELEPHONE KEY REMOTE CONTROL COMMAND
    1 System status report
    2 Arm the system in Away Mode
    3 Arm the system in Stay Mode
    4 Disarm the system
    5 Turn on the auxiliary output
    6 Turn off the auxiliary output
    7 Stop the system status report
    8 Disconnect (hang up)
    9 Repeat command menu
    # Bypass all open sensors and arm system
