Instruction for module with firmware ver. 2.20 and above.
The device allows monitoring of events occurring in alarm and security systems as well as operation in remote control systems by means of SMS notifications and CLIP calls, in any GSM mobile phone network 900/1800 MHz. In remote control operation, devices can be directly connected to its relay outputs
and controlled also by means of SMS & CLIP (Calling Line Identification Presentation - a supplementary GSM service used to show the number of a caller).
Specified below are characteristic features of Elmes GSM2 module:
 Mobile phone integrated GSM transceiver (CE, FCC and SGS certified).
 4 control inputs, each with programmable switching levels in the range of 0.2 - 14,5V and programmed hysteresis in the range of 0.1 - 5V.
 Four SMS controlled and isolated relay outputs with NO (Normally Opened), or NC (Normally Closed) terminals – see Fig.1 below.
 Relay outputs operation in pulse mode (programmable time-lapse), or on/off mode (bistable).
 Outputs are set on by means of SMS or CLIP from up to 255 phone numbers, or by input violation.
 Alarm monitor SMS & CLIP notifications sent to up to six preregistered phone numbers.
 The ability to remotely add and delete phone numbers supported by the module.
 Periodical communication test by SMS or CLIP sent to one or two phone numbers, at user’s specified day time or time interval.
 SMS information of all inputs and outputs status.
 The ability to remotely execute AT commands.
 User set limited number of SMS notifications sent daily.
 TAMPER switch monitoring of module’s box cover opening.
 Module configuration, firmware upgrade and user preference parameters are set in “GSM2 Configurator” software made for Windows® based PC (Personal Computer). The software is available for download at manufacturer’s web site: www.elmes.pl
Control Inputs
Elmes GSM2 module features four control inputs with 15VDC(!) maximum allowable input voltage level, as measured with reference to module’s ground
(minus power supply). “GSM2 Configurator” software specifies the following parameters for each input module:
 The level of input switching voltage in the range of 0.2 - 14,5V, and the voltage hysteresis in the range of 0.1 - 5V, set for each input individually.
 Input set on (activation) voltage level – high (H) or low (L).
 Phone numbers to which SMS notifications are sent on input set on (change from inactive to active).
 Phone numbers to which SMS notifications are sent on input set off (change from active to inactive).
 SMS notification text contents on input set on and off (up to 63 characters each).
 Phone numbers CLIP calls are made to on input set on.
When CLIP call is made to phone number engaged or unavailable, the call is redialed twice. First however, the module attempts to call remaining phones in
predefined list and then returns to redial the unmade call. Calls are considered made when:
 call is rejected;
 call is received and ended by call recipient;
 call is received and ended by the module due to predefined notification time passage (up to 99 seconds);
If a call is neither rejected nor received, but the defined notification time has passed, the module would not acknowledge the call as received and will attempt to redial two times. This function can be deactivated - then the module calls only once.
Control Outputs
Elmes GSM2 module features four control relay outputs. Each output has two installation terminals jumper configured to operate in normally opened (NO),
or normally closed (NC) mode (see figure 1). Outputs feature the following “GSM2 Configurator” software set parameters:
 output name (up to 16 characters max.);
 one of four possible operating modes;
 selection whether output’s relay sets ON or OFF on output activation.
Outputs can be controlled by SMS command sent to the module. The user sets the following parameters:
 whether SMS command is protected by preceding password;
 whether SMS command can be sent from any, or module listed only phone numbers;
Fig.1 Output
 whether SMS command letters case (lower or upper) has meaning;
 whether the module confirms command execution by return SMS or, in case of an error, confirms command rejection.
The GSM2 outputs can be also controlled by calling to module’s number from one of its 255 listed numbers. Each of these phone numbers may have predefined one or many control outputs assigned for simultaneous operation. This mode allows programmed time pulse control of outputs only (bistable “on/off”
operation is not available). The third and last available control mode of GSM2 allows predefined output/s control by violation of inputs. In this mode an
output can work in monostable mode (modes 1 and 2) or bistable (modes 3 and 4), as described in the table below.
Table 1: SMS text command pattern depends on selected operating mode of module’s outputs, as below:
Output’s Operating Mode
Examples of SMS commands content and their meaning
1. Pulse Mode with preset set on time.
„OUT1” – Sets on output OUT1 for time preset in GSM2 Configurator
2. Pulse Mode with set on time defined in
„OUT1 1:30” – Sets on output OUT1 for 1m30s
SMS text.
„OUT1” – Sets on output OUT1 for time preset in GSM2 Configurator
3. Bistable Mode – on/off.
„OUT1 Y” or „OUT1” – Sets stable on output OUT1
„OUT1 N” – sets off output OUT1
4. Any mode defined in SMS command
„OUT1” – Sets ON output OUT1 for time preset in GSM2 Configurator
„OUT1 1:30:00” – Sets on output OUT1 for 1h30m
„OUT1 Y” – Sets on output OUT1 stable until set off command is received
„OUT1 N” – Sets off output OUT1
Remarks: SMS text commands should be separated by a space and quotation marks should not be used!
 After applying name to output, the name should be then used in SMS commands, e.g. „STOVE 1:30:00” (switch on stove for 1h30m).
 In output bistable operation mode, letters T, Y, t, y can be used to mark set on while N, n to mark set off.
 In monostable (pulse) operation mode, output set on time can be specified as: HH:MM:SS, MM:SS or SS where “:” can be substituted by . / \ e.g.
„OUT1 1.40.00” (one hour and 40 minutes); „OUT1 5/20” (5 minutes 20 seconds); „OUT1 6” (6 seconds).
 Single SMS command can control any number of outputs, e.g. „OUT1 OUT2 5 OUT3 T OUT4 12.00”.
Correct SMS command is executed immediately after its receipt and, if this option is selected, confirmed by return SMS with “OK” or information on all
inputs and outputs status. If SMS command contained any error, such as improper output name, incorrect password or content, the command is not executed and, if this option is selected, “ERROR” SMS is returned. Typical error could be SMS command “OUT1 Y” send to output that operates in monostable
mode (1 & 2) or, execution of SMS command “OUT1 5:00” when the output is defined to operate in mode 1 (Pulse Mode with predefined set on time).
Communication Test
GSM2 module features periodical communication test by making CLIP call or sending SMS to one or two predefined phone numbers. The SMS text containing up to 31 characters is defined by user. In addition, the contents of the SMS can include the state of the inputs and outputs. In “GSM2 Configurator” it is
possible to define whether the test is performed once daily at specified time, or at specified time interval, e.g. every 8 hours. In the first case, module’s real
time clock should be set first either in Configurator software, or by SMS with password followed by text “TIME HH:MM:SS” or “TIME HH:MM”. Example:
“TIME 12:30” sets the real time clock to 12:30. Then, set the timing of communication test. NOTE! Time setting SMS must include a valid password.
Periodical test can be forced to perform at any time by resetting test time counter, e.g. by sending SMS with “RESTART”. Within a minute the test will be
performed and next test will be made after preset time interval, e.g. after 8 hours. NOTE: The SMS command must include a password.
Communication test can also be done at any time by calling to the module from any of its listed phones. The call would be rejected and, if the option is set
on, a return call will be made confirming proper communication status.

Module Status
The module status is an SMS describing the state of its inputs and outputs. It is send in response to an SMS with the text "STATUS" or SMS which controls
outputs. It can also be sent periodically during the test module. The status may be presented in a simplified form, eg .: "IN1..4 = 1000, OUT1..4 = 0100", or
expanded. In this case, when the zone is triggered, the contents of the SMS will be according to full description of inputs and outputs defined in the software
“GSM2 Configurator”.
Remote edition of phone number list
It is possible to add and delete phones from the list by SMS, but only by one phone number with appropriate authorization. Example SMS which
adds/deletes number to/from the list should be of the following pattern respectively: "ADD +44123…" or “DEL +44123…”. The phone number must be in the
international syntax, e.g. in England must begin with: +44 .... NOTE: SMS can only add/delete phone to/from the list, but not select which output can be
controled, or whether the module can accept incoming SMS from this number. Therefore, these options must be earlier set up by "GSM2 Configurator".
Remote AT commands (recommended for experienced users only)
Any AT commands will be executed at the start of the module. These special commands are send directly to the GSM radio module used in the device and
allow for additional functionality. As an example is the possibility, later on, of remote execution of AT commands via SMS, e.g. to force the module to log on
to the GSM network other than the default GSM provider. For more information, please see extended user’s manual of GSM2 module.
IMPORTANT NOTE! Before module first use prepare SIM card with active PIN code and preset PIN 1234. The required PIN code can be
preset in any mobile phone operating in the same GSM network. In case of GSM2 module with firmware 2.11 or higher, SIM card without active
PIN code can be used, i.e. with card access protection set off. The SIM card must have SMS memory and phonebook cleared and voicemail
option disabled. The use of SIM card with other PIN code is not allowed and may result by the card being blocked.
The use of card
with incorrect PIN can block the card!!!
the Module
GSM2 module can be programmed and tested with „GSM2 Configurator” PC software before, or after installation. The latter allows GSM diagnostics, e.g.
GSM signal reception test in place of module installation. To connect the module to PC a dedicated Elmes made mini USB-RS cable (sold separately) is
needed. The cable can be optionally ordered from Elmes Electronic or its distributors. To use the cable a dedicated software driver must be installed on the
PC. GSM2 Configurator software as well as mini USB-RS cable driver can be downloaded from the manufacturer web site: www.elmes.pl. The user should
make sure that GSM2 Configurator software current version is installed on the PC. If not, then it should be uninstalled by means of Windows® Control Panel
Add/Remove Programs steps and latest version installed.
(!) The following steps should strictly be followed when connecting GSM2 to PC:
1. Make sure SIM card with PIN 1234 is inserted in SIM socket (in case of GSM2 module with firmware
2.11or higher SIM card without active PIN code, i.e. with card access protection set off can be used).
2. Connect power supply to the module (12VDC/1A).
3. Connect mini USB cable plug to socket in the module.
4. Connect USB cable plug to USB socket in PC.
When disconnecting, reverse steps should be followed.
JP Jumper Use
The jumper is used only if module’s firmware upgrade process has not succeeded properly, e.g. power
supply set off while in upgrading. In that case, the jumper should be set ON followed by power supply
switched on. The module starts firmware upgrade now.
Installation Hints
The module can be installed indoor only, in dry place. Poor GSM signal reception places should be
avoided. To improve reception a dedicated external GSM antenna can be used and connected to SMA
socket, in place of the supplied antenna. With the supplied screws bottom part of the module’s plastic
case should be installed to wall observing upwards direction of module’s antenna. SIM card should be
inserted, antenna screwed in and input-output wire connections should be made with cables put through
dedicated cable hole in the bottom cover, or through holes made in purpose. Connection of power supply
is signalled by fast flashing LED. Slow flashing LED, ca every three seconds, indicates module registration in GSM network. Registration procedure takes 30 to 60 seconds.
