1. INTRODUCTION
The Mobeye Argos is an easy to install alarm
system that will notify you about an activation
using the built-in GSM communication module.
To use the Mobeye Argos you will need a SIMcard from any network.
Typical applications are the security of places
without any power supply or the temporary security of properties.
The Mobeye Argos has the following features:
Alarm notifications after movement detection
In case of the detection of an intruder, the Mobeye Argos will send an SMS
text message to your phone(s). The Mobeye Argos will also call the phone
numbers in order to be sure the message is not missed. It is also possible
to set on the siren sound. After an alarm the Mobeye will be in standby
status for about 5 minutes. Following the standby period, the Mobeye will
resume alerting you to new movement.
Alarm notifications after detection of out of range temperature
It is possible to program a minimum and/or maximum temperature alert in
to the Mobeye Argos. The system will monitor the actual temperature of its
environment and send an alert as soon as the temperature reaches the
limit.
Battery operated or using the mains
Although the Mobeye Argos is designed to run on batteries, it is possible to
use an external power supply. When powering the Mobeye Argos with
mains, it notifies the first set telephone number if the power fails and that it
has switched to battery backup. It is also possible to remotely control the
system when using mains power.
Connecting external sensors and devices
In addition to the integrated movement sensor and temperature sensor,
external sensors can be connected. The Mobeye Argos can also switch
external devices connected to it via the outputs when an event triggers it
(such as an alarm or incoming call).
Private numbers or Mobeye Internet Portal
The Mobeye Argos sends alarm messages to a maximum of five
telephone numbers. As an option the Mobeye Argos can be connected to
the Mobeye Internet Portal, which is explained in chapter 11.
Low battery message
The Mobeye Argos will send an SMS text message when the batteries
need to be replaced. When receiving this message, you need to change
the batteries as soon as possible, although the Mobeye Argos remains
functioning for a short time following the message. Even when the Mobeye
Argos is unset, it will measure the battery strength and send the message.
1
2. TO GET READY IN FOUR STEPS
To get started with the Mobeye Argos only four steps are needed.
1. Place the SIM card in the Mobeye Argos.
Make sure this SIM card is not secured by a PIN code.
2. Insert the four batteries.
3. Enter at least one phone number in the Mobeye Argos.
4. Check the settings
In this chapter these steps are explained.
2.1 STEP 1: SIM CARD
To use the Mobeye Argos a SIM card from any network is needed. On this
SIM card, the PIN code security needs to be disabled or 0000. If you have
a SIM card with PIN code, you can disable or change this using any mobile
phone and change the PIN code security. Please consult the manual for
that mobile phone for the procedure.
The SIM card needs to be inserted before the
batteries. When using a prepaid SIM card, take note
of the available credit. Additionally it is wise to set a
recurrent test message in the menu so the card will
be used at least once a month.
 Open the back cover
 Insert the SIM card in the holder. For
opening/closing, move the cover slightly.
2.2 STEP 2: INSERTING THE BATTERIES
Insert the four lithium 3,0 volt batteries (CR123). When replacing the
batteries, all settings remain unchanged.
After inserting the SIM card and the batteries, the Mobeye Argos will
perform a self test taking 1 minute. During the test, the light is red.
If the light is flashing red, a problem with the SIM card is detected. A
reason could be no SIM card was placed, or the PIN code security of the
SIM card was not disabled.
Close the Mobeye Argos using the 4 screws.
2.3 STEP 3: PROGRAM THE PHONE NUMBERS
You need to program at least one phone number in the unit as alarm
number.

Press “OK”
The light turns green and a confirmation melody is played.
The Mobeye Argos is ready to use.
2
2.4 STEP 4: CHECK THE SETTINGS
The settings can be sent to the programmed telephone number as SMS
text message. In this way you also check the correct working of the SIM
card.
 Enter your 4 digit code (factory setting: “1111”)
 Press “menu”
 Enter “10”
 Press “OK”
Within ca. 30 seconds the programmed phone number will receive the list
with settings.

3. INTRUDER ALARM: OPERATION
3.1 SWITCHING ON AND OFF
To activate the Mobeye Argos movement detector, use the installation
code or user code.
 Enter your code
 Press “OK”
The light turns red shortly and an indication tone is started. This
repetitive tone will last during the exit delay of 60 seconds. As soon as
the acoustic signal stops, the Mobeye Argos is active.
- If the code is entered incorrectly 3 times, the indicator turns red and the
Mobeye Argos will be blocked for 10 minutes.
- The action can be interrupted at any time, by twice pressing “OK”.
- The entry indication and siren are off as factory default. Look at the next
chapter how to activate them.
To de-activate the Mobeye Argos movement detector with your code.
 Enter your code
 Press “OK”
The light switches to green and a confirmation melody is played.
The system needs to be switched on and off using the same code; the
installation code and user code are not interchangeable.
3.2 ALARM MESSAGE, CONFIRMATION AND LISTEN-IN
When the armed system detects a movement, it first waits for the entry
delay period and then it alarms. During the entry delay the GSM module
starts to establish a connection to the network. If the system was not
disarmed, the alarm messages follow. First an SMS text message is sent
to all programmed alarm numbers; next a phone call is made to the
numbers. When you answer the phone, a beep tone is heard.
Confirm using “1”
It is possible to confirm the phone call by answering the phone and
pressing “1“. The other alarm numbers will not be called afterwards.
Listen-in using “9”
It is possible to start a listen-in connection by answering the phone call and
pressing “9”. You will then be able to hear anything in the immediate
vicinity of the Mobeye Argos. If the siren was set to “loud”, it is stopped.
After two minutes one hears two short beeps; if one presses “9” again, the
listen-in is extended by another two minutes. By pressing “9” the call is
confirmed as well and the other alarm numbers will not be called
afterwards.

4.2 INSTALLATION CODE
The installation code is the 4-digit code for switching on/off and
programming the settings or activating the special functions. Factory
default is “1111”. It is possible to change the code to any 4-digit number.
Please change the code to make the unit more secure.
4.3 USER CODE
The Mobeye Argos offers the possibility to set a personal 4-digit user code,
for just arming and disarming the system. It is not possible to change the
settings with the user code. The system needs to be switched on and off
using the same code; the installation code and user code are not
interchangeable. Factory settings for the user code is “8888”. This code
can be changed by the installation code or user code (menu number 50).
We recommend that you change this code to make the unit more secure.
4.4 SMS CUSTOM TEXT
It is possible to add a custom text in the SMS text messages, to identify
the Mobeye Argos unit that sent the message. The second part of the SMS
text message contains a standard text like ‘Mobeye alarm’, or ‘Test
message OK’. The custom text will be written before the standard text.
This custom text (max. 20 characters) is programmed by sending an SMS
to the Mobeye Argos. Changing the custom text cannot be done via the
keypad, only via sending an SMS text message.
Switch the Mobeye Argos into the programming mode. In this mode the
GSM module is switched on and is able to receive messages.




Enter your 4-digit personal code. (factory setting: “1111”)
Press “menu”
Press “21” -> light turns green
Press “OK”
First the light flashes red (interval ca. 1 sec). As soon as the light turns
green, the Mobeye Argos is able to receive SMS-messages.
To program the custom text, send an SMS in following structure:
1111 NAME:myowntext
-
‘1111’ stands for the installation code (1111)
‘NAME’ is a standard command (capitals)
Replace ‘myowntext’ by a self-defined text (max. 20 characters)
Be aware of the space after 1111 and the colon after NAME
You will hear two short beeps in case of a correct command.
Leave the menu by pressing “OK” twice.
6
4.5 TELEPHONE NUMBERS
Up to five telephone numbers can be programmed in to the Mobeye Argos.
In the event of an alarm the Mobeye Argos first sends an SMS text
message to all numbers, next they are called. It is possible to confirm the
call, after which the other numbers will not be called anymore. Or to start a
listen-in connection.
Note: The first telephone number is required, the others are optional.
4.6 SMS ON/OFF
By default, the Mobeye Argos sends alarm notifications via text message
and calls to the preset contact persons. By turning off the SMS, the unit
will only call after the movement sensors send an alarm. Regardless of this
setting the temperature alarm always sends an SMS including the actual
temperature.
4.7 CALL ON/OFF
By default, the Mobeye Argos sends alarm notifications via text message
and calls to the preset contact persons. By turning off the CALL, the unit
will only send an SMS text message as alarm notification. It is not possible
to switch off both the SMS and the call.
4.8 SENSOR SENSITIVITY
The detectors’ sensitivity can be changed to a high or low value.
1= High
2 = Low
In the high sensitivity mode each detection will generate an alarm. In the
lower sensitivity mode the alarm will be generated only when the detector
is activated twice in any 15 second period. This mode prevents false
alarms in case of e.g. draught and is most suitable if the sensor is directed
towards an open space.
4.9 ENTRY DELAY
It is possible to choose from 5 entry delay times (1,15, 30, 45 and 60
seconds). The entry delay is the time between the moment of detection
and the moment of sending the first SMS text message.
Important note: If the GSM network has low signal strength, the time can
be longer as the network connection may not be established within the
time of the entry delay.
4.10 ENTRY INDICATION
No entry indication is set as the factory default. It is possible to hear an
indication beep during the entry delay. This can be used as a reminder that
the Mobeye is in active mode. It is also possible to just let the LED
indicator flash a few times, as an indication for the user.
7
4.11 SIREN
After the entry delay, the siren can sound for two minutes. At the same
time the SMS text messages and telephone calls will be sent. At soon as
the Mobeye is switched off, the siren will stop. The siren is set to silent as
the factory default.
4.12 EXIT INDICATION
Upon arming the system, you have one minute to leave the room. The PIR
is not active yet and an exit indication sounds. It is possible to change this
to a silent exit time. A short beep is heard and the LED flashes red during
the exit time.
4.13 INTERVAL TEST MESSAGE
The Mobeye Argos can send test messages. Through these ‘keep alive’
reports you will be informed about the status of your Mobeye Argos. You
can set the interval between the test reports. This is adjustable between 0
(no test reported) and 30 (every 30 days a test message). Note: the
interval of 1 day will result in a daily test message; the exact time between
the messages will be about 24 hours.
The smaller the interval between the test reports, the shorter is the battery
life. The test message only works if the system is on or a temperature limit
is set.
4.14 SET ACTUAL TIME AND DATE
If the system is to be armed automatically, the internal clock time needs to
be correct. Some Telecom providers offer this in the network, to be
synchronised by the Mobeye Argos during the start-up and after sending
test messages. It is possible to set the time and date manually. To view
the clock time, send a list of the settings to the first programmed phone
number (CODE MENU 10 OK).
4.15 AUTOMATIC TIME-BASED ARM/DISARM
The Mobeye Argos can be armed and/or disarmed based on a daily time
schedule. If the exit indication was set to ‘silent’, the system makes no
noise during arming and disarming. The first telephone number needs to
be set before the arming and/or disarming time can be set.
4.16 INACTIVE TIME AFTER A MOVEMENT DETECTION
The “PIR inactive time” is the time the movement sensor is inactive after
having seen and reported movement. If the time is set to “5” (minutes), the
sensor will only report new movements after a minimum of 5 minutes after
the previous movement.
The inactive time can be set in minutes from 0 to 999. As factory default
the inactive time is set to “5”.

5.2 MONITORING THE TEMPERATURE LIMITS
The Mobeye Argos is able to send a temperature alarm as soon as the
actual temperature reaches a programmed min. or max. level. This
function can be used independently of the motion detection. As soon as
the temperature is too high or too low, an SMS text message is sent,
followed by a telephone call. As long as the out of range temperature
remains, the report will be repeated every four hours (factory default).
Once the temperature is back to normal, the Mobeye Argos confirms this
to you.
This function is active as soon as a temperature limit is programmed. By
resetting the limits, the function becomes inactive.
9
5.3 ADJUSTING THE TEMPERATURE
The built-in temperature sensor may have a standard deviation of the
actual temperature. In this case, the deviation will be similar at all
temperatures. It is possible to correct the temperature deviation in the
Mobeye Argos. In the SMS setting summary, you see the reported
temperature. If a correction is specified, it is processed in the displayed
temperature; the correction factor itself is displayed separately.
Example: Mobeye temperature: 13 °C. Actual temperature: 14 °C. To
correct this deviation, one degree should be added.
5.4 DELAY TIME
The temperature delay time defines the duration a temperature limit is
exceeded before an alarm is initiated. If the temperature returns to the nonalarm status within the delay time, no alarm is sent. The delay time can be
set between 0 and 999 minutes.
As default, the temperature delay time is set to 0 minutes.
5.5 ALARM REPEAT
In order to emphasize the urgency of the alarm messages, the
temperature alarm (and alarms on the inputs 1 and 2) can be repeated. As
long as the alarm status has not returned to the inactive status, the SMS
alarm will be repeated after the ‘alarm repeat time’ (as long as the alarm
SMS is “ON”). In the repeated temperature alarm message the actual
temperature is mentioned as well, to follow the temperature development.
The time can be set between 0 and 24 hours. As default the alarm repeat
time is set to 4 hours.

function before it is ready, please press “OK” twice.
Warning
In the event of a weak signal, the Mobeye Argos can still be used, but
there is a risk that messages cannot be sent or will be received with a
delay. In case of no signal, it is advised to try a different network.
12
7. CONNECTING SENSORS, DEVICES AND EXTERNAL POWER
In addition to the integrated movement sensor and temperature sensor,
external sensors can be connected as alarm input. The Mobeye Argos can
also switch external devices connected to it via the outputs when an event
triggers it (like an alarm or incoming call).
And although the Mobeye Argos is designed to run on batteries, it is
possible to use an external power supply in order to report power failure
and to remotely control the system.
In following chapters the inputs, outputs and external power settings are
explained. Please find below the architecture of the main unit.
13
8. INPUTS
External sensors can be connected to the inputs. Upon closing (or
opening) an input, the Mobeye Argos will send an alarm message to the

8.2 ALARM TEXT
Custom alarm texts can be programmed. These texts have a maximum
length of 20 characters.
The following texts are programmed as factory default:
Triggered input 1
Triggered input 2
TEXT1: alarm 1
TEXT2: alarm 2
The alarm text can be changed by SMS command (see chapter 12 for
explanation):
SMS command TEXT1: CODE TEXT1:free text
SMS command TEXT2: CODE TEXT2: free text
8.3 INPUT TYPE
The input type defines the character of the inputs IN1 and IN2. This can be
Normally Open (NO) or Normally Closed (NC). If an input is set to NO, the
alarm will be triggered as soon as the terminals of the input are closed. If
the input is set to NC, the alarm is triggered if the connection between the
input terminals is broken. The default input type is set to NO.
8.4 INPUT DELAY TIME
The input delay time defines the time that the inputs are triggered before
an alarm is initiated. If the input returns to the non-alarm status within the
delay time, no alarm is sent. The delay time can be set between 0 and 999
seconds.
As default, the input delay time is set to 1 second.
8.5 INACTIVE TIME
The “inactive time” defines the time the movement sensor, input 1 or input
2 is not active after an activation. If the time is set to “0” (minutes), the
input is active again immediately after returning to the non-alarm status. If
the time is set to e.g. 30 minutes, the input remains inactive for the first 30
minutes. If the input is again (or still) activated after these 30 minutes, a
new alarm message is sent. The inactive time can be set between 0 and
60 minutes. As default, the inactive time is set to “5” for all inputs.
8.6 PIR SENSOR ON/OFF
If the inputs are in use, it could be useful to de-activate the integrated
movement sensor (PIR). The Mobeye Argos will then cease activating
alarms when movement is detected until this function is reinstated. As
factory settings the PIR is ON.
8.7 ALARM REPEAT
See 5.5 for explanation.

9. EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY
Although the Mobeye Argos is designed to run on batteries, it is possible to
use an external power supply (9-24VDC). In this mode the module is
always in connection with the GSM network. The advantage of external
power is the longer battery lifetime, to receive power failure messages and
the possibility to perform remote actions, like arm/disarm, switch the
outputs, ask status reports and to program it via SMS-commands. Be
aware: the PIR sensor will be slightly less sensitive when using external
power supply.
1) Replace the
white grommet
with the rubber
ring (using a
tool)
2) Insert the 2 wires through
the hole to the inside part and
in to the two connectors
(press the orange pins):
V+
to “+”
“Ground” to “-“
3) Be sure the wires
are laid between
the tapped holes
and the wall of the
casing
before
closing.
Article 10027: black wire with white line is “+”, black wire is “-“
9.1 CONFIGURATION

9.2 SENSITIVITY PIR
Using an external power source, the internal PIR sensor will react slight
slower after detecting movements, even when the sensitivity is set to
‘high’. Be sure the sensor is positioned well, so the intruder can be seen
while walking or working. Please test the PIR positioning to ensure the PIR
detects you in the areas you are trying to secure.
9.3 POWER FAILURE MESSAGE
Upon a power outage the batteries take over functioning. A ‘power failure’
SMS text message is sent to the first telephone number. The GSM
module turns to the low power status, meaning it closes and only
establishes network connection in case it needs to send a message
(alarm, test, battery low).
The power failure message can be deactivated (OFF). As factory default
the power failure message is set to ‘ON’.
9.4 POWER FAILURE DELAY TIME
The power failure delay time defines the time that the power fails before an
alarm is initiated. If the power is restored within the delay time, no alarm is
sent. The delay time can be set between 0 and 60 minutes. As default, the
delay time is set to 1.
9.5 AUTHORISATIONS AND REMOTE CONTROL
When connected to an external power, the GSM module is active all the
time, able to receive SMS commands. This enables both programming and
remote control. Remote control actions are: arming, disarming and
switching the outputs. As prerequisite for remote control the ‘controlling
telephone number’ needs to be authorised. . A maximum of ten numbers
can be authorised via keypad or SMS command. If it is not clear what
memory positions are available, it is possible to add a new number by the
SMS command ‘ADDTELA’ . The new number takes the first free position.
To receive a list with the authorised numbers, please refer to paragraph
14.3.
SMS-commands for remote control (no code is necessary, but numbers
need to be authorised):
Arm:
ARM
Disarm:
DISARM
Switch on output 1:

17
10. OUTPUTS
The Mobeye Argos has two outputs (O1 and O2).These (dry) relay outputs
can switch external devices. The maximum load is 2A/30V per output.
Output 1 is free to use for an external device. Switching the relay can be
done in several ways: after an alarm, upon arming, upon disarming or
remote (via SMS or call).
Output 2 (O2) is configured for an external siren. This output reacts similar
to the internal siren; if this is set to ‘silent’, O2 does not react. Upon a
(loud) alarm, it switches for 2 minutes.
1) Replace the white
grommet with the
rubber ring (using a
tool)
2) Insert the 2 wires
through the hole in to the
terminal connectors (press
the orange pins):
3) Be sure the wires are
laid between the tapped
holes and the wall of the
casing before closing
the casing.

10.2 DURATION OF OUTPUTS: SWITCH OR PULSE TIMES
If an output is used, the time this output is activated can be set between 1
and 999 seconds. If the setting is set to 0, the output does not return to its
previous state automatically. An authorised number can switch it back by
the SMS command O1OFF (see 9.5). In the factory settings the duration of
the pulse time for output 1 is “0” and for output 2 “120”.
10.3 SWITCH BEHAVIOR
The reason why output 1 is switched can be configured. Choices are:
switch by remote control (RC), switch when arming the Mobeye Argos
(ARMED), switch when disarming the Mobeye Argos (DISARMED), switch
upon an intruder alarm (alarm on PIR, IN1 or IN2), switch upon a
temperature alarm (temp). For remote control (switch via SMS-commands,
please refer to 9.5), the senders’ telephone number needs to be
authorised. In the factory settings the switch behaviour of output 1 is set to
‘RC’.
10.4 AUTHORISING TELEPHONE NUMBERS
For remote control by telephone (arm, disarm, switch outputs), the
telephone numbers need to be ‘authorised’. A maximum of ten numbers
can be authorised via keypad or SMS command. In case it is not clear
which memory position is free, it is possible to add a new number by the
SMS command ‘ADDTELA’ . The new number takes the first free position.
To receive a list with the authorised numbers, please refer to paragraph
14.3.

11. MOBEYE INTERNET PORTAL
The Mobeye Argos sends GSM messages to the pre-set contact persons.
It is also possible to connect the system to the Mobeye Internet Portal. In
this secured internet environment the Mobeye Argos systems can be
administered. The portal offers various functions:
1) the portal dispatches alarm messages to contact persons (SMS
and/or mail), which are set in the portal. Different persons can be set
for alarm messages versus technical message.
2) the name and location can be set in the portal. This name is used in
SMS and mail messages.
3) the portal will check the receipt of test messages (‘keep alive’); in
case the message was not received on time, it sends an exception
message.
Please contact Mobeye for more information.
It is also possible to connect the Mobeye Argos to an alarm receiving
centre (ARC), if this ARC has an SMS receiver.
Please contact Mobeye for more information.
20
12. PROGRAMMING VIA SMS TEXT MESSAGES
