1 Application area
Adaptation to GSM network of alarm control panels which are equipped with PSTN line
communicator to send reports to monitoring station using DTMF based protocols
(Contact ID, Ademco Express); the module makes possible the installation of such alarm
systems in places where PSTN line is not available but reporting to monitoring station is
requested. The module may also be used as phone line substitute, GSM line simulator;
by connecting a wired phone device to the module, incoming and outgoing calls can be
performed through the GSM network.

 Setting the phone number for SMS forwarding function
The module can forward the SMS messages received on the inserted SIM card to one
adjustable mobile phone number. To adjust the phone number, connect a wired phone
device to the module’s “TIP-RING” terminals, then pick up the receiver and dial the
following:
 to set new phone number:
 to delete phone number:
1234phone number#
1234#
After setting or deleting the phone number the module confirms the execution by emitting
a beep through the phone. When a new phone number is set, the module sends as a
confirmation a test SMS to the given phone number with the following message: „SMSForward settings accepted”.
Attention! The module does not forward SMS messages received from the superuser
phone number!
SMS forward limit: the module is equipped with automatic limitation of outgoing SMS
messages. The function allows forwarding of 5 messages/12 hours.

 Voice dialer support
One main characteristic of voice dialers is that they used to start playing the message if
they detect no ringtone on the line in a certain time.
By enabling this function, the module generates a simulated tone signal until the call is
received. This way can be avoided that the voice dialer starts to play the message before
receiving the call. By default, this function is disabled. To enable/disable voice dialer
support, connect a wired phone device to the module’s “TIP-RING” terminals, then pick
up the receiver and dial the following:
 to enable voice dialer support:
 to disable voice dialer support:
00001#
00000#
After entering the activation or deactivation command, the module confirms the execution
by emitting a beep through the phone.
 Configuring by SMS commands
It is possible to configure the module by sending the appropriate command in SMS to the
module’s phone number from the phone number configured as SUPERUSER. After
receiving a command, the module sends response SMS, except for SUPERUSER
registration. The SMS commands are the following:
The module sets the sender’s phone number as Superuser. The
SUPERUSER#
module accepts this parameter only if no Superuser has
been set before! No response SMS is sent for this command!
Deletes the current Superuser. The module accepts this
SU=#
command only from previously set Superuser phone number.
Sets the phone number where incoming SMS messages will be
SFW=phone number#
forwarded.
Deletes the phone number where incoming SMS messages are
SFW=#
forwarded.
Enable voice dialer support.
VDS=1#
VDS=0#
Disable voice dialer support.
GMIC=X#
Adjusts the microphone volume (outgoing CID volume).
Substitute X with a number between 0…15. Default setting: 3.
GSPK=X#
Adjusts the speaker volume (incoming HSK/ACK volume).
Substitute X with a number between 0…100.
Default setting: 50.
 GSM signal strength query
To get the current GSM signal strength, press shortly the pushbutton found on the
module. Thereafter the number of green blinks of the LED found on the module indicates
the signal level on a 3-point scale.
 Service port
The USB service connector found on the module serves for diagnostics and eventual
firmware upgrade or in-call volume adjusting.

4 Volume adjusting application
The module’s USB storage contains a volume adjusting application (Volsetter.exe),
which can be used to adjust the in-call volume levels, if necessary and justified. Adjusting
may be necessary if voice quality or volume problem is experienced while using the
module with the given GSM service provider’s SIM card. The module can be connected
to a PC using USB A-B cable.
Using the software:
 Copy the software form the module’s USB storage to PC, then start it.
 Connect the module to USB. The software connects to the module automatically,
then “Read” and “Set” buttons become available.
 Read the actual settings from the module by pressing “Read from module” button.
 Mic volume: microphone volume (outgoing Contact-ID).
 Spk volume: speaker volume (incoming HSK/ACK).
 Set the desired volume level, then write the settings to the module by pressing “Set”
button.
Attention! Even minor level modifications cause significant changes in the in-call
volume!
 The new settings are applied after writing in the very next voice call.

7 Installation guide
7.1 Mounting
 Test the GSM signal strength with your mobile phone. It may happen that the signal
strength is not sufficient in the desired mounting place. In this case the planned
installation place can be changed before mounting the device.
 Do not mount the unit in places where it can be affected by strong electromagnetic
disturbances (e.g. in the vicinity of electric motors, etc.).
 Do not mount the unit in wet places or places with high degree of humidity.
 Connecting the GSM antenna: the GSM antenna can be fixed in the FME-M socket
found on the panel. The antenna supplied with the module provides good
transmission under normal reception circumstances. In case of occasionally
occurring signal strength problems or/and wave interference (fading), use another
(directed) type of antenna or find a more suitable place for the module.

7.2 Putting into operation
 Disable PIN code request, voicemail and notification in SMS about missed calls on
the SIM card placed into the module.
 Enable caller ID sending service on the SIM card at the GSM service provider.
 Insert the SIM card as shown in the wiring diagram and push it into the socket until it
clicks. If you wish to remove the SIM card, press it again on the part which is
outside of the socket.
 Check the antenna to be fixed properly to the ecoLINE module.
 Check the wires to be connected as shown in the wiring diagram.
 The device can be powered up. Make sure that the power supply is sufficient for the
load of the module. The quiescent current of the module is 110mA, however it may
increase up to 400mA during communication.
