Additional Considerations
Annual verification of timing of an alarm and a fault message is required. ATS5 requirements is the arithmetic mean of all transmissions is less than or equal to 20
seconds and 95% of all transmissions are less than or equal to 30 seconds. Time is measure from the moment the message is reported on a local keypad to when
the monitoring station receiver successfully receives the message. This can be accomplished by contacting the monitoring station and sending a test message
and calculating the time from which the message appears on the local keypad and when the monitoring station receives the same message. As with traditional
land-line reporting an acknowledgement (kiss-off) signal is used when the IP150 sends a valid message to a receiver that is typically used in a monitoring station.
This acknowledgement is generated within 5 seconds. Discuss with your service provider the different options that are available for monitoring; for example, the
frequency of supervision. The transmission of an alarm message may be negatively affected by a variety of factors. These may include disruptions in 3rd party
services like internet access and GSM service. If after a set amount of transmission attempt are unsuccessful local and remote messages are generated. Standard
set of commonly available hand tool are require to install equipment; no equipment adjustments are necessary. When configured as indicated the IP150 surpasses
the ATS5 performace criteria set out in EN 50131-1.
The period from the time a fault develops in the alarm transmission system until the fault information is reported to the alarm receiving centre and/or monitoring
centre shall not exceed 180 seconds for ATS 5 performance criteria as defined by EN 50131-1. This is achieved through settings in the Security Profile of each
account at the receiver equipment. Refer to receiver instruction documentation for further information. As required per clause 7.5 of EN 50136-1-1, records of all
faults and of all performance verifications carried out on the alarm transmission system shall be maintained. Requirements include the availability of these records
for inspection, and availability analysis calculations based on these records. Consult the standard for more detailed information.
To connect and install the IP150:
1) Connect the 4-pin serial cable between the panel’s serial connector and the IP150’s panel connector (see Right Side View in Figure 2).
2) Connect the Ethernet cable between the router and the IP150’s network connector (see Left
Side View in Figure 2).

When using IP reporting, the IP150 has the ability to poll the monitoring station. To enable IP
reporting, the IP150 must first be registered to the monitoring station’s IP Receiver (IPR512). Telephone reporting can be used in conjunction with, or as a backup to IP reporting. Before registering
the IP150, the following information must be obtained from the monitoring station:
Account number(s) - One account number for each partition used. IP/GPRS reporting uses a
different set of account numbers than those used for dialer reporting.
IP address(es) - (12-digit number e.g., for you must enter
The IP address(es) indicate(s) which of the monitoring station’s IP Receivers will be used for IP
IP port(s) (5-digit number; for 4-digit numbers, enter 0 before the first digit). The IP port refers
to the port used by the monitoring station’s IP Receiver.
Receiver password(s) (up to 32-digits)
The receiver password is used to encrypt the IP150 registration process.
Security profile(s) (2-digit number). The security profile indicates how frequently the monitoring
station is polled by the IP150. Security profile numbers and polling frequency are defined by the
monitoring station.

NOTE: An IP150 used with an MG/SP/E system will always poll using the partition 1 IP account
number. When using an EVO system, the partition 1 IP account is used by default, but can be
defined in section [3020]. All reported system events will originate from the partition selected in
this section.
Remote Access
The IP150 provides remote access to control and monitor a security system via web browsers or
software. This provides the user with the freedom to access the system from anywhere in the
world. The following steps will guide you in setting up remote access.
Step 1: Setting up the Router
This step allows you to set up the router so that the IP150 module can function properly.
1) Ensure that the router is connected properly as indicated in the router’s instructions.
2) Access your router’s configuration page. Refer to your router’s manual for the exact procedure.
In most cases, this is done by entering the router’s static IP address in the address bar of your
Web browser. For this instance, we will use as an example.Your router’s IP address
3) In the router’s configuration page, check the DHCP settings (screenshot below may differ
depending on type of router used).
NOTE: For increased communication security, please change the default PC password and
Panel ID in the control panel. Also, note that the IP150 supports SMTP/ESMTP/SSL/TLS
The method of activation is either Toggle or Pulse. If set to Toggle, a Delay Before Activation can
be defined. If set to Pulse, a Delay Before Activation and Duration can be defined. See figures 4
and 5 for examples of input and output connections.
Figure 3: Input/Output Configuration
If DHCP is enabled, verify that the IP address range leaves at least one IP address available
outside of the range. The range shown in the above example would leave addresses 2 to 4 and
101 to 254 available (all the numbers in an IP address are between 1 and 254.) Record one of
the addresses outside the DHCP range as the one you will use for the IP150. If DHCP is
disabled, the IP150 will use the default address of It is possible to change that
address if needed using the Paradox IP Exploring Tools software.
4) In the router’s configuration page, go to the Port Range Forwarding section (also known as
“port mapping” or “port redirection.”) Add a service/item, set the Port to 80 and enter the
static IP address selected in the previous step for the IP module. If port 80 is already used, you
can use another one, such as 81 or 82 but you will have to modify the IP150’s settings in step 2.
Some Internet Service Providers block port 80, therefore the IP150 may function locally using
port 80 but not over the Internet. If this is the case, change the port to another number. Repeat
this step for port 10 000 (screenshot below may differ depending on type of router used). Also, repeat
this step for port 443 if using a secure connection (https).
Step 3: Setting up ParadoxMyHome (optional)
This step is not needed if the IP address provided by the Internet Service Provider is static. Using
the ParadoxMyHome service will allow you to access your system over the Internet with a
dynamic IP address. The IP150 will then poll the ParadoxMyHome server to keep the information
updated. By default, the ParadoxMyHome service is disabled (enable it on the IP150 Module
Configuration page).
Figure 4: Input Connection Example
To set up the ParadoxMyHome service:
1) Go to www.paradoxmyhome.com, click Request Login and provide the requested information.
2) Start the Paradox IP Exploring Tools software and right-click the IP150.
3) Select Register to ParadoxMyHome.
4) Enter the requested information. Enter a unique SiteID for the module.
Step 2: Configuring the IP150
1) Using a computer connected to the same network as the IP150, open the Paradox IP Exploring
2) Click Find It. Your IP150 appears in the list.
5) When registration is complete, you can access the IP150 page by going to:
If there are issues with connecting to the IP150, try making the polling delay shorter (configured on
the IP150’s webpage interface), so that the IP information available for the ParadoxMyHome
connection is up to date. However, a shorter delay for the polls will increase the traffic on the
internet (WAN).
Figure 5: Output Connection Example
Step 4: Using a Web Browser to Access the System
Once the module is configured, it can be accessed either from the local network or through the
internet using the alarm system’s user code or user IP150 password.
On-Site Access:
1) Enter the IP address assigned to the IP150 in the address
bar of your Web browser. If you have used a port other than
port 80, you must add [: port number] at the end. (For
example, if the port used is 81, the IP address entered
should look like this: For a secure
connection, make sure to write “https://...etc.”.
Use the Paradox IP Exploring Tools software, click Refresh
and double-click on your IP150 in the list.
3) Right-click your IP150 and select Module setup, see screenshot below. Enter the static IP
address you recorded in Step 1.3 or modify the address so that it corresponds to the one you
have selected for the IP150. Enter the IP150’s password (default: paradox) and click OK. If it
indicates that the IP address is already used, change it to another and modify it in the Port
Forwarding of the router (step 1.4) and go back to step 2.1.
4) Set any additional information such as port, subnet mask, etc. To find this information, click
Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. Enter command: IPCONFIG /ALL (with
space after IPCONFIG).
2) Enter your alarm system’s User Code and IP150 user password (default: paradox).
WARNING: A pop-up warning you that the website’s certificate is not secure may occur.
This is acceptable, click to continue.
Off-Site Access:
1) Go to www.paradoxmyhome.com/siteID (replace ‘siteID’ by the ‘siteID’ you used to register
with the ParadoxMyHome service).
2) Enter your alarm system’s User Code and IP150 password (default: paradox).
Event Log
There are three types of events logged (note that only the last 64 events will be displayed):
- Reporting (which are color-coded: success, fail, pending, and cancel by panel)
