Description
The C3 Cellular Communications Center is a wireless cellular
communicator that allows phone calls to be made over the GSM
cellular network using the existing telephones in your home. The
C3 can be used when there is no landline in your home or the
landline is temporarily unavailable.
Use with security systems…
The C3 allows any existing security panel to communicate alarm
conditions using the GSM cellular network. The C3 checks the
status of the existing PSTN telephone line and if it is unavailable,
the C3 will emulate the line signal to the security panel. When an
alarm occurs, the security panel will dial out using the GSM cellular
network to communicate with the central monitoring station.
Used as Backup phone service (landline unavailable)
1
Everyday use…
When the C3 is connected to the GSM cellular network, attached
telephones can be used to make calls. If a landline is present, you
will hear the normal dial tone and you can make your call as normal
using the landline service. However, if the landline is currently
unavailable, you will hear a different tone which indicates the C3 is
in cellular mode and the call will be made using the cellular network.
If the landline is available, but you still want to make the call using
the cellular network, when you pick up the phone and hear the
normal dial tone, press the ‘*’ key on the phone and the C3 will
switch to GSM mode. At that point, you will hear the cellular mode
tone and you can make the call using the GSM cellular network.
When a call is made to the phone number assigned to the GSM
SIM card that is installed in the C3, any phones that are connected
to the C3 will ring as they normally would when a landline call is
received.
Used as Primary phone service (no landline)

SIM Card
A GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) SIM card
(Subscriber Identity Module) is required for operation. The SIM card
contains subscriber information about your cellular service including
the telephone number.
Typically, an additional line can be added to a GSM cellular plan by
your provider for a nominal monthly fee. You can use the SIM card
from the additional line in the C3 unit. Another option is to use a
prepaid SIM card. Prepaid SIM cards can be used in the C3 as
long as the SIM card isn’t locked to a handset.

Indicator
When the unit is turned on, the Power Indicator will illuminate and
the Network Indicator will flash quickly while the C3 searches for a
network. When a network is found, the Network Indicator will flash
slowly and the Signal Strength Indicators will illuminate based on
the GSM signal strength.
If the SIM card is not installed or the SIM card can’t be used, the
Signal Strength Indicators and Network Indicator will flash quickly. If
a connected phone is taken off-hook, a busy signal will be heard.
Note: If the SIM care is not installed or can’t be used, turn the
Power Switch to “Off” so that the landline can be used as normal.

Making Calls
To make a phone call, simply pick up a connected telephone and
listen for a dial tone. Whenever a connected phone is taken
off-hook, the In Use Indicator is illuminated.
If a PSTN landline is connected, you will hear the normal dial tone.
Simply make your call as normal. If the landline is temporarily
unavailable, the C3 will automatically switch to GSM mode.
If a PSTN landline is not present or is temporarily unavailable, the
GSM network will be used. You will hear a dial tone with a different
cadence from the normal PSTN dial tone. When you hear this dial
tone, you know that the PSTN landline is currently unavailable and
you are using the GSM network.
When connected to a security system and an alarm occurs, the call
will be made using the GSM network as if using the PSTN landline.
Making a call using the GSM network
1) Pick up the phone and listen for the GSM dial tone.
2) Dial the phone number you wish to call and then press the ‘#’
key on the phone keypad. The call will be made immediately.
Note: If you do not press the ‘#’ key after dialing the phone number,
the call will automatically be made several seconds after the last
digit was entered.
When a landline is present
If you would like to make a phone call using the GSM network even
when a PSTN landline is available, you may do so as follows:
1)
2)
3)
4)
Pick up the phone and listen for the normal dial tone.
Press the ‘*’ key on the phone keypad.
You will immediately hear the GSM dial tone.
Dial the phone number you wish to call as described above.

Receiving Calls
When a call is made to either the landline phone number or the
cellular number assigned to the SIM card, the connected phones
will ring as normal. Simply pick up a handset to answer the call.
Ending Calls
While on a call using either the landline or the GSM network, to
disconnect the call, simply hang up the handset.

This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. Located on
the equipment is a label that contains, among other information, the
ACTA registration number and ringer equivalence number (REN). If
requested, this information must be provided to the telephone
company.
The REN is used to determine the quantity of devices which may be
connected to the telephone line. Excessive REN’s on the telephone
line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming
call. In most cases, but not all areas, the sum of the REN’s should
not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that
may be connected to the line, as determined by the total REN’s,
contact the telephone company to determine the maximum REN for
the calling area.
This equipment cannot be used on the telephone companyprovided coin service. Connection to Party Line Service is subject
to State Tariffs.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the
telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary
discontinuance of service may be required. If advance notice isn’t
practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as soon
as possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a
complaint with the FCC if you believe it is necessary.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities,
