1 INTRODUCTION
FERCS10 is a remote monitoring and intrusion alarm system. It consists of a
central unit capable of accommodating various wireless and wired sensors and
detectors. FERCS10 can also be used to control remotely electrical devices
such as heating or lighting via internet or text message. FERCS10 sends alarm
or indication messages as emails and/or text messages
External siren can be attached to FERCS10 system in order to conspicuously
expel burglars and other unwanted persons from the property.
Backup battery can be connected to FERCS10 system ensuring continuous
operation of the system during power failures. The user is informed when
system is switched from main power to battery.
The system can be set or unset with a mobile phone, keypad or remote
controller. The system also supports timered setting and unsetting using the
handy week calendar feature.
FERCS10 maintains a user defined list of network cameras so that they can
easily be accessed through one interface.
FERCS10 keeps tracking measurement data, such as temperature and
humidity, so that the user can later view it graphically with internet browser.
The system can be used anywhere from the world. The easiest way to use and
maintain the FERCS10 system is through internet browser but this can also be
done with text messages in absence of an internet connection.

can take up to few minutes. The system can be used and configured using text
messages or internet browser. See chapter 6 USING FERCS10 SYSTEM WITH
COMPUTER or 7 USING FERCS10 SYSTEM WITH MOBILE PHONE for details.
The instructions of the accessories can be found from the documentation of
their manufacturer.
See wiring examples from Appendices.
4.2 INSTALLING SENSORS AND DETECTORS
Various sensors, such as temperature and humidity sensors, can be connected
to FERCS10 system. Also, different detectors, such as motion, fire, smoke,
flood and magnetic contacts for doors and windows, can be connected to the
system. Wired and wireless detectors are available depending on the type of
the detector.
4.2.1 INSTALLING SENSORS
Measuring sensors, such as temperature and humidity sensors, are connected
to the sensor connector of the central unit with straight ethernet cable. The
other end of the cable is connected to the free port of the sensor connector
and the other end to the sensor. More information about functionality of the
sensors can be found from chapter 5.3 SENSOR FUNCTIONALITY.
4.2.2 INSTALLING WIRED DETECTORS
Wired detectors, such as motion and fire detectors, are connected to the zone
connector of the central unit with suitable cable. There are two 12V and GND
pins in the zone connector. The pins numbered one to seven are used to
connect normal close (NC) or normal open (NO) type detectors.
NC type detector alarms when alarm loop breaks and NO type detector alarms
when alarm loop closes. The type of the detector tells the position of the switch
inside the detector in normal situation. Normally, the NC type detector has the
switch closed which opens in alarm situation. The NO type detector operates in
the opposite way. Connection examples can be found from chapter APPENDIX 4
CONNECTION EXAMPLES OF NO AND NC TYPE ZONES. The default type in the
FERCS10 system is NC for each detector. The type can be changed using text
message or internet browser.
10
Zones from one to seven are regular alarm zones. Zone one is dedicated to be
the delay zone and alarms coming from it are delayed by the user configured
time. More information about functionality of the zones can be found from
chapter 5.4 ZONE FUNCTIONALITY.
Zone eight is dedicated to be the bypass zone and regular detectors can not be
attached to it. Information about installation of the bypass zone can be found
from chapter 4.3 INSTALLING BYPASS ZONE.
The suitable cable for connecting wired detectors can be for instance 4 x 0,5
mm2 cable. The wires of the cable are connected between a detector and the
zone connector according to Table 1. Use the counter piece that is attached to
the zone connector.

4.2.3 INSTALLING WIRELESS DETECTORS
An optional receiver is required when wireless detectors are used. The outputs
of the receiver are connected to the zone connector of FERCS10. See chapter
APPENDIX 5 CONNECTION EXAMPLES OF WIRELESS RECEIVER for connecting
Visonic MCR-308 receiver to the FERCS10 system.
4.3 INSTALLING BYPASS ZONE
Zone eight is the bypass zone and a keypad or wireless remote controller can
be connected to it. Using of wireless remote controller requires a separate
receiver which is connected to the zone connector of the central unit. A
controller connected to the bypass zone can be used either in pulse or hold
mode.
An example of connecting a keypad to FERCS10 system can be found from
chapter APPENDIX 3 CONNECTION EXAMPLES OF EXTERNAL DEVICES.
An example of connecting a receiver for the wireless remote controller can be
found from chapter APPENDIX 5 CONNECTION EXAMPLES OF WIRELESS
RECEIVER.
Information about functionality of the bypass zone can be found from chapter
5.5 BYPASS ZONE FUNCTIONALITY.
11
4.4 INSTALLING GSM/GPRS
GSM antenna is needed when GSM/GPRS feature is used. Antenna is included
in the sales package. The antenna is connected to the GSM antenna connector
labelled as ANT.
Tightening the antenna needs to be done carefully. Turning antenna
too tight may damage the GSM antenna or the connector and weaken
the GSM signal receiving.
SIM card is also required when using GSM/GPRS. SIM card is placed to the SIM
tray which is ejected by pressing the yellow button next to the SIM connector.
The SIM tray is then carefully put in place so that the contacts of SIM card are
facing the metallic contacts of the SIM holder. SIM card is not included in the
sales package.
Before inserting SIM card the PIN inquiry needs to be disabled and
text messages need to be deleted from SIM card. This can be done
with a mobile phone.
4.5 INSTALLING OUTPUTS
There are two outputs which can be used to control external devices.
Depending on the type of the external device a relay might be needed. The
outputs are located in the output connector and are labelled as OUT1 and
OUT2.
When outputs are active then there is current in the circuit. See the maximum
values of the relay control outputs for voltage and current from
SPECIFICATIONS.
See information about the functionality of the outputs from chapter 5.6
OUTPUT FUNCTIONALITY.
See an output connection example from chapter APPENDIX 3 CONNECTION
EXAMPLES OF EXTERNAL DEVICES.
4.6 INSTALLING SIREN
There is one siren output to control external siren. The siren output is located
in the output connector labelled as BUZZ. See the maximum voltage and
current ratings from SPECIFICATIONS.
See information about the functionality of siren from chapter 5.7 SIREN
FUNCTIONALITY.

5 USING THE FERCS10 SYSTEM
This chapter describes how to use the FERCS10 system. It includes adding
users to the system, setting and unsetting the system and using control
outputs, battery, siren and instant alarming features. Also network usage is
covered.
5.1 ADDING USERS TO SYSTEM
There can be up to eight users programmed to the FERCS10 system. Adding
users to the system can be done using text message or internet browser. See
details from chapter 6.2.3.6 USER SETTINGS when using internet browser and
chapter 7.3.4 USER when using text message. User information that can
programmed contains name, mobile phone number and email address. Also
alarm types that are call, sms or email can be programmed. The alarm type
tells the way the user is informed when an alarm occurs.
The FERCS10 system reacts only to mobile phone numbers programmed in the
system. These mobile phone numbers act as administrators. The indication and
alarm messages are sent to these mobile phone numbers and also to email
addresses.
If there are no administrator numbers programmed then the system
can be controlled by any mobile phone.
The system can not be controlled by email.
It is possible to program administrator numbers to the system by
calling from those numbers in 10 minutes after the first startup. This
feature can be used again after restoring factory settings.
14
5.2 SETTING AND UNSETTING SYSTEM
The FERCS10 system has two states which are set and unset. In the set state
FERCS10 monitors the system and informs users when there is an alarm. In
the unset state system is idle. The system is unset by default.
The system can be set or unset using internet browser, mobile phone, remote
controller or keypad:
•
•
•
•
Setting/unsetting system by internet browser
o Chapter 6.2.3.5 ALARM SETTINGS describes how to set or unset the
system using internet browser.
Setting/unsetting system by mobile phone
o Chapter 7.3.5 ALARM describes how to set or unset the system
using text message. This can also be done by calling the system
which toggles the system state between set and unset depending
on which state the system is at the moment.
Setting/unsetting system by remote controller or keypad
o If a remote controller or keypad is connected to the zone eight it
can be used to set or unset the system. See more information from
chapter 4.2.2 INSTALLING WIRED DETECTORS.
Setting/unsetting system by timer
o The system can also be set or unset automatically by using the
timer feature. This feature is only available through web interface
using internet browser. See more information from chapter 6.2.3.5
ALARM SETTINGS.
If a zone is active, meaning NC loop is open or NO loop is closed, then the
system can not be set. For instance, zone with door detector connected is
active if the door is open.
Only the controller attached to the bypass zone can be used to set or
unset the system if the bypass zone is operating in the hold mode.
All the pending zone alarms are automatically acknowledged when the system
is set successfully meaning there are no active zones at the setting moment.
If there is an external siren connected to the system a sound indication will be
played when the system is set or unset. If the setting of the system fails it will
also generate a sound indication. More information about siren functionality
can be found from chapter 5.7 SIREN FUNCTIONALITY. In the alarm situation
siren is played for 15 minutes by default but the user can change this time
using text message or internet browser. Information about changing the alarm
time can be found from chapter 6.2.3.5 ALARM SETTINGS when done with
internet browser or from chapter 7.3.5 ALARM when done with text message.
15
5.3 SENSOR FUNCTIONALITY
Sensors are detected automatically when the system is started up. Sensors are
disabled by default and thus will not generate any alarms. If a sensor is
enabled it will generate an alarm if its high or low limit has been exceeded
whether the system is set or unset. This is because enabled sensors are always
active.
In sensor alarm situation siren will not be played but text message and email
will be sent. Also, the user is not called even though the user is configured to
have a call in alarm situations. Sensor will not alarm again until its alarm has
been acknowledged either by text message or internet browser.
5.4 ZONE FUNCTIONALITY
Zones can not be detected automatically when the system is started up. Thus
the type and the state have to be configured. Type can be either NC or NO and
is NC by default. Zone state is disabled by default and can be one of the
following:
•
•
•
Disabled
o In alarm situation zone alarm will not be generated regardless of
the system state
Enabled
o In alarm situation zone alarm will be generated if the system is set
24h
o In alarm situation zone alarm will be generated regardless of the
system state
o Siren will not be played in alarm situation
o Fire or flood detectors are advised to be used in 24h mode
Zone will not alarm again until its alarm is acknowledged using text message
or internet browser. The zone alarm can not be acknowledged until the zone is
back in normal state. For instance, if a door is open then door detector alarm
can not be acknowledged before the door is closed.
Zone one is the delay zone and alarms coming from it are delayed by the user
configured time. By default the delay is 30 seconds. If the delay is set zero the
zone will work as a regular zone. Information about setting the delay can be
found from chapter 6.2.3.5 ALARM SETTINGS when done with internet browser
or from chapter 7.3.5 ALARM when done with text message. The delay applies
for both entry and exit directions. For instance, a door detector can be
attached to the zone one so that an alarm is not passed immediately when the
user enters property. This way the user has time to unset the system. Also,
when the system is set the user has time to leave without alarm being caused
by the door detector.
16
Zone eight is the bypass zone and its functionality differs from other zones.
Information about the functionality of the bypass zone can be found from
chapter 5.5 BYPASS ZONE FUNCTIONALITY.
5.5 BYPASS ZONE FUNCTIONALITY
Zone eight is the bypass zone dedicated to unset and set the system. Thus it
can not be connected with regular detectors. A keypad or wireless remote
controller can be connected to the bypass zone. More information about
installation can be found from chapter 4.3 INSTALLING BYPASS ZONE.
Do not use zone eight for any other purpose than setting and unsetting
the system.
The bypass zone can be programmed to operate in pulse or hold mode. More
information about programming can be found from chapter 6.2.5 ZONES PAGE
when done with internet browser or from chapter 7.3.11 ZONE when done with
text message.
In pulse mode a controller connected to the bypass zone has to send an
upwards pulse lasting for at least one second to change the system state.
Figure 3 demonstrates this. When the bypass zone is operating in pulse mode
the system state can also be changed by calling, text message, internet
browser or timer.
In hold mode the bypass zone operates as NC loop. The system is unset when
signal coming in to the bypass zone is low. When incoming signal is high (512V) the system is set. Figure 3 demonstrates this. The system state can not
be changed in any other way but using the device connected to the bypass
zone when the bypass zone is operating in hold mode. Thus system state can
not be changed by calling, text message, internet browser or timer in hold
mode.
17
Figure 3. The bypass zone functionality in pulse and hold modes
The system state can only be changed using the device connected to
the bypass zone when the bypass zone is programmed to hold mode.
5.6 OUTPUT FUNCTIONALITY
The outputs are set off by default. They can be controlled using text message
or internet browser. See details from chapter 6.2.7 CONTROLS PAGE when
using internet browser and chapter 7.3.8 CONTROL when using text message.
The user can program outputs to operate in following modes:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Normal control: user sets the output on or off
Pulse control: user sets the output on for a certain period of time after
which the output is set off automatically
Follow system state: the output is set automatically on or off:
o System is set the output is on
o System is unset the output is off
Follow alarm state: the output is set on or off automatically depending if
a zone alarm has occurred. The output is set on when an alarm occurs
from a zone and set off when all the zone alarms have been
acknowledged which can be done manually or by setting the system.
Follow zone: the output is set automatically on or off
o User defined zone is active the output is on
o User defined zone is not active the output is off
Follow sensor: the output is set on or off automatically according to on
and off limits of a user-defined sensor. These limits can be different than
18
low and high limits of the sensor. See more information from this
chapter.
The user can set output on or off only in normal or pulse control mode.
In other modes the outputs are set on or off automatically. If the output is
wanted to be set on or off while it is operating automatically then the output
mode has to be changed to normal or pulse mode.
Output following a sensor
Figure 4 shows two cases, A and B, when output is following a sensor.
Figure 4. Output state changing according to on and off limits
In case A, sensor on value is greater than sensor off value. The output is set
on when the curve goes over on value and set off when it goes below off value.
In case B, sensor off value is greater than sensor on value. The output is set
on when the curve goes below on value and set off when it goes over OFF
value.
19
5.7 SIREN FUNCTIONALITY
Siren is used to give information to the users about current state of the
system. Siren is played in the following situations:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Alarm: siren is on for 2 - 15 minutes except in alarm situations caused
by sensors and 24h mode zones
System is set: three beeps and during exit delay
System is unset: two beeps
System setting failure: long beep
Entry time indication: beeps during entry delay
User launch instant alarm: as in normal alarm
5.8 BATTERY FUNCTIONALITY
Battery is used to ensure power to the system in case of main power supply
failure. The user will be informed if the system switches to work on battery and
also when the system again runs on main power. Battery is maintenance
charged while the system is running on main power.
FERCS10 is reading the battery voltage from time to time and alerts if
the battery voltage drops too low. It is recommended to have low
voltage protection and protective container when backup battery is
connected to system.
5.9 INSTANT ALARM FUNCTIONALITY
The user can make an instant alarm using internet browser or text message.
See chapter 6.2.3.5 ALARM SETTINGS when using internet browser and chapter
7.3.10 INSTANT ALARMING when using text message for information. In the
case of instant alarm all users are informed as in normal alarm situation and
also the external siren will be played. Instant alarm can be launched regardless
if the system is set or unset. Instant alarm can be used to remotely expel an
unwanted person from the property.
Instant alarming can be stopped by unsetting the system with text
message or internet browser.
5.10 CHANGING LANGUAGE
User can change language of the device using text message or internet
browser. See details from chapter 6.2.3.1 DEVICE SETTINGS when using
internet browser and chapter 7.3.13 CHANGING LANGUAGE when using text
message for more information.
20
5.11 RESTORING FACTORY SETTINGS
The factory settings can be restored using text message or internet browser
See chapter 6.2.8 ADMINISTRATION PAGE when using internet browser and
7.3.7 DEVICE when using text message for more information.
Hardware restoring is also possible:
• BATT+ and BUZZ+ are connected together
• FERCS10 is rebooted. Booting takes 30 – 60 seconds during which the
power led labelled PWR lights steadily. After the boot the power led will
flash for 30 seconds
• During flashing the connection between BATT+ and BUZZ+ is removed
• After flashing time is over FERCS10 will restore factory settings and boot
itself during which the led is not lighting
• Hardware restoring is completed
5.12 USING FERCS10 FROM NETWORK
The FERCS10 system can be used and programmed using text messages and
internet browser. Figure 5 shows the usage of the FERCS10 system in network
environment.
Figure 5. Network charts
FERCS10 is connected to internet via ADSL modem as shown in option A.
FERCS10 can also be connected directly to computer as shown in option B.

Programming the FERCS10 system is easy when using option B because
internet browser can be used as described in chapter 6 USING FERCS10 SYSTEM
WITH COMPUTER. Programming can also be done using text messages as
described in chapter 7 USING FERCS10 SYSTEM WITH MOBILE PHONE. In both
options A and B a straight network cable is used to connect FERCS10 to
modem or computer.
Both modem and FERCS10 network settings need to be configured properly if
the system is accessed via internet:
• FERCS10 network settings are configured using text message or internet
browser. See chapter 6.2.3.2 CONNECTION SETTINGS when using internet
browser and chapter 7.3.12 CONNECTION when using text message for
more information.
• The NAT settings of the modem need to be programmed so that the
incoming http traffic is routed to the IP address of FERCS10.
• Firewall settings are programmed if needed. See more information from
the manual of your modem.
For internet connection SNTP or SMTP server address of the FERCS10 system
need to be defined. See details from chapters 6.2.3.3 TIME SETTINGS or 6.2.3.2
CONNECTION SETTINGS.
The IP address of the modem has to be known before the FERCS10 system can
be accessed via internet. The modem routes the incoming http traffic to
FERCS10 when the above mentioned NAT settings are done. Usually a modem
does not have a fixed IP address so that it could be easily accessed from
internet.
Dynamic DNS service can be used to locate the modem in internet. For this an
account needs to be created in DDNS service. For instance www.dyndns.org
can be used to create a DDNS account. After creating the account the IP
address of the modem can be associated to an easily remembered internet
address.
Many modems support the DDNS service and thus the information of DDNS
account can be stored to the modem. This way the modem updates its IP
address to the DDNS service and the user does not have to worry about the
changing IP address of the modem.
5.13 USING FERCS10 FROM MOBILE NETWORK
FERCS10 has an internal GPRS modem and so the system can be operated
from mobile internet. The GPRS connection can be used in places where there
is no ADSL network available or as a backup connection for IP traffic.
22
For creating the mobile internet connection GPRS feature needs to be enabled
and operator’s APN or access point name to be defined. The APN defines the
access point between internet and GPRS networks. If email messages are
needed to be received via GPRS network then the IP address of the operator’s
SMTP server has to be defined. These settings can be defined by using internet
browser as described in chapter 6.2.3.2 CONNECTION SETTINGS or by text
message as described in chapter 7.3.3 GPRS.
Creating the GPRS connection to the FERCS10 system is initiated by sending a
text message as described in chapter 7.3.3 GPRS. The system replies by
sending a message which contains the IP address if the GPRS connection was
successfully created. By writing this IP address to the address bar of the
internet browser the FERCS10 system can be accessed. The WWW pages are
optimized for GPRS browsing. Chapter APPENDIX 6 CREATING GPRS CONNECTION
TO FERCS10 SYSTEM has a picture how to create a GPRS connection to the
FERCS10 system. If GPRS connection is not used for five minutes it is
automatically closed.
23
6 USING FERCS10 SYSTEM WITH COMPUTER
The connection between computer and FERCS10 is created by connecting a
straight network cable between the LAN connector of FERCS10 and the
ethernet connector of the computer.
6.1 CHANGING NETWORK SETTINGS OF THE COMPUTER
Computer and FERCS10 have to be in the same network before they can
communicate with each other. Thus the network settings of the computer
might need to be changed. The old network settings of the computer should be
written down before changing the network settings so that they can be
restored back to original.
There is an example of changing network settings in Microsoft Windows XP
using traditional menu model and it might be different in other operating
systems:
1. Open Network Connections as shown in Figure 6:
Figure 6. Network Connections
•
Click Start Settings Network Connections
24
2. Change the properties of the network connection to which FERCS10 is
connected as shown in Figure 7:
Figure 7. Network connection properties
•
Right click the correct connection and select Properties
3. Choose the properties of internet protocol as shown in Figure 8:
Figure 8. Internet protocol properties
•
Under General tab choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click
Properties
25
4. Change internet protocol settings as shown in Figure 9:
Figure 9. Changing Internet protocol properties
•
•
Under General tab select Use the following IP address
o IP address: 10.0.0.5 or other suitable address different than
10.0.0.20
o Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
o Default gateway: leave empty
Press OK
5. After all settings are done close window by pressing OK button.
Now the computer should be able to communicate with the FERCS10 system.
See chapter 6.2 FERCS10 WWW PAGES for using FERCS WWW pages.
6.2 FERCS10 WWW PAGES
The easiest way to use and maintain the FERCS10 system is through internet
browser. To see all the WWW pages correctly Javascript needs to be enabled in
browser settings. Usually it is enabled by default. If the Javascript functionality
is disabled the user is notified.
26
Avoid using back, forward and refresh buttons of the browser but rather links
of the www pages of FERCS10 while using them.
Some of the FERCS10 www pages contain question marks for assistance.
6.2.1 FERCS10 SYSTEM LOGIN
The FERCS10 www pages can be accessed by writing the IP address of
FERCS10 to the address bar of the browser as shown in Figure 10:
Figure 10. Writing FERCS10 IP address in address bar

7 USING FERCS10 SYSTEM WITH MOBILE PHONE
The FERCS10 system can be used and configured by text messages using
mobile phone. This chapter describes the necessary text message commands
to use and configure FERCS10.
Before using text messages the SIM card must be inserted and the GSM
antenna must be attached to the FERCS10. See details from chapter 4.4
INSTALLING GSM.
7.1 TEXT MESSAGE TYPES
There are two types of text messages:
•
•
Setting messages
Daily use messages
The setting messages are used to program the FERCS10 system and they are
mainly used in installation phase. Daily use messages are used more often for
controlling or getting information about the system.
See APPENDIX 1 SUMMARY OF TEXT MESSAGES for summary of all the text
messages and their examples.
7.2 TEXT MESSAGE STRUCTURE
The structure of a daily use message:
group <action> <extra attribute>
The structure of a setting message:
group <action> <extra attribute> <possible parameters and their values>
In setting messages parameters are separated from each other with comma.
Parameter and its value is separated by ‘=’ sign. User can set one or more
parameters relating to the same function at a time. If one or more values of
parameters are faulty then none off the values of parameters is changed.
Changing a value of a parameter does not affect on any other values of other
parameters.
NOTE!
Do not send text messages over 160 characters.
