3G Alarm Communicator Installlation Manual
Warning: Installer Please Read Carefully
WARNING: INSTALLER PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Note to Installers
Motion Detectors
The Warnings on this page contain vital information. As the only individual in
contact with system users, it is the installer’s responsibility to bring each item in
this Warning to the attention of all users of this system.
Motion detectors can only detect motion within the designated areas as shown in
their respective installation instructions. They cannot discriminate between
intruders and intended occupants. Motion detectors do not provide volumetric
area protection. They have multiple beams of detection and motion can only be
detected in unobstructed areas covered by these beams. They cannot detect
motion which occurs behind walls, ceilings, floor, closed doors, glass partitions,
glass doors or windows. Any type of tampering whether intentional or unintentional such as masking, painting, or spraying of any material on the lenses, mirrors, windows or any other part of the detection system will impair its proper
operation.
Passive infrared motion detectors operate by sensing changes in temperature.
However their effectiveness can be reduced when the ambient temperature rises
near or above body temperature or if there are intentional or unintentional sources
of heat in or near the detection area. Some of these heat sources could be heaters,
radiators, stoves, barbeques, fireplaces, sunlight, steam vents, lighting and so on.
System Failures
This system has been carefully designed to be as effective as possible. There are
circumstances, however, involving fire, burglary, or other types of emergencies
where it may not provide protection. Any alarm system of any type may be compromised deliberately or may fail to operate as expected for a variety of reasons.
Some, but not all, of the reasons may be:
Access by Intruders
Intruders may enter through an unprotected access point, circumvent a sensing
device, evade detection by moving through an area of insufficient coverage, disconnect a warning device, or interfere with or prevent the proper operation of the
system.
Component Failure
Although every effort has been made to make this system as reliable as possible,
the system may fail to function as intended due to the failure of a component.
Compromise of Radio Frequency (Wireless) Devices
Signals may not reach the receiver under all circumstances which could include
metal objects placed on or near the radio path or deliberate jamming or other
inadvertent radio signal interference.
Criminal Knowledge
This system contains security features which were known to be effective at the
time of manufacture. It is possible for persons with criminal intent to develop
techniques which reduce the effectiveness of these features. It is important that
your security system be reviewed periodically to ensure that its features remain
effective and that it is updated or replaced if it is found that it does not provide the
protection expected.
Failure of Replaceable Batteries
This system’s wireless transmitters have been designed to provide several years
of battery life under normal conditions. The expected battery life is a function of
the device environment, usage, and type. Ambient conditions such as high
humidity, high or low temperatures, or large temperature fluctuations may reduce
the expected battery life. While each transmitting device has a low battery monitor which identifies when the batteries need to be replaced, this monitor may fail
to operate as expected. Regular testing and maintenance will keep the system in
good operating condition.
Inadequate Installation
A security system must be installed properly in order to provide adequate protection. Every installation should be evaluated by a security professional to ensure
that all access points and areas are covered. Locks and latches on windows and
doors must be secure and operate as intended. Windows, doors, walls, ceilings
and other building materials must be of sufficient strength and construction to
provide the level of protection expected. A reevaluation must be done during and
after any construction activity. An evaluation by the fire and/or police department
is highly recommended if this service is available.
Inadequate Testing
Most problems that would prevent an alarm system from operating as intended
can be found by regular testing and maintenance. The complete system should be
tested weekly and immediately after a break-in, an attempted break-in, a fire, a
storm, an earthquake, an accident, or any kind of construction activity inside or
outside the premises. The testing should include all sensing devices, keypads,
consoles, alarm indicating devices, and any other operational devices that are part
of the system.
Insufficient Time
There may be circumstances when the system will operate as intended, yet the
occupants will not be protected from an emergency due to their inability to
respond to the warnings in a timely manner. If the system is remotely monitored,
the response may not occur in time to protect the occupants or their belongings.
Power Failure
Control units, intrusion detectors, smoke detectors and many other security
devices require an adequate power supply for proper operation. If a device operates from batteries, it is possible for the batteries to fail. Even if the batteries have
not failed, they must be charged, in good condition and installed correctly. If a
device operates only by AC power, any interruption, however brief, will render
that device inoperative while it does not have power. Power interruptions of any
length are often accompanied by voltage fluctuations which may damage electronic equipment such as a security system. After a power interruption has
occurred, immediately conduct a complete system test to ensure that the system
operates as intended.
Security and Insurance
Regardless of its capabilities, an alarm system is not a substitute for property or
life insurance. An alarm system also is not a substitute for property owners, renters, or other occupants to act prudently to prevent or minimize the harmful effects
of an emergency situation.
Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors that are a part of this system may not properly alert occupants of
a fire for a number of reasons, some of which follow. The smoke detectors may
have been improperly installed or positioned. Smoke may not be able to reach the
smoke detectors, such as when the fire is in a chimney, walls or roofs, or on the
other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors may not detect smoke from fires on
another level of the residence or building.
Every fire is different in the amount of smoke produced and the rate of burning.
Smoke detectors cannot sense all types of fires equally well. Smoke detectors
may not provide timely warning of fires caused by carelessness or safety hazards
such as smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of
flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with
matches, or arson.
Even if the smoke detector operates as intended, there may be circumstances
when there is insufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to
avoid injury or death.
Telephone Lines
If telephone lines are used to transmit alarms, they may be out of service or busy
for certain periods of time. Also an intruder may cut the telephone line or defeat
its operation by more sophisticated means which may be difficult to detect.
Warning Devices
Warning devices such as sirens, bells, horns, or strobes may not warn people or
waken someone sleeping if there is an intervening wall or door. If warning
devices are located on a different level of the residence or premise, then it is less
likely that the occupants will be alerted or awakened. Audible warning devices
may be interfered with by other noise sources such as stereos, radios, televisions,
air conditioners, other appliances, or passing traffic. Audible warning devices,
however loud, may not be heard by a hearing-impaired person

C24 Interactive
NOTE: This application has not been investigated by UL/ULC and is not be used on UL/ULC certified installations.
The Communicator provides C24 Interactive monitoring and control via an RS-422 interface to an external C24-HUB. The default Keybus link speed is 115.2
KB and this option is programmable by the installer. All life-style events are transmitted by the RS-422 link to the C24-HUB and then remotely to the C24 Interactive Servers.
NOTE: The C24-HUB is an interface device which connects to security panels, IP cameras, sensors, Z-wave based home automation devices, etc. to deliver a
host of advanced functionality.
NOTE: Life-style events are “non alarm” events. Life-safety events are “alarm” events.
The following features are available with the RS-422 C24 Interactive:
• Communicator faults can be transmitted.
• Panel communication errors are reported to the C24-HUB.
• Real time reporting of Zone status information to the C24 Interactive Server.
• Remote update of the Communicator (flash upgrade).
• SMS incoming “wake up” for the 3G/GPRS channel.
• WEB login to request an incoming session with the Communicator.
• Zone Label Programming.
NOTE: Communicator buffers 1000 date/time stamped Life-Style events to the C24-HUB as First In First Out (FIFO).
NOTE: When Interactive is enabled, (Via Gateway or Data Network) Upon exiting installer programming, communicator will synchronize programming with control panel. This process takes approx. 5 seconds, during this time the keypad will be “Function Not Available”.
PRE INSTALLATION CONFIGURATION
Encryption
The Communicator uses 128 Bit AES Encryption. Encryption can only be enabled from the monitoring station receiver. Each receiver (Ethernet 1 and 2, 3G/
GPRS 1 and 2) can independently have encryption enabled or disabled. When encryption is enabled, the central station will configure the device to encrypt
communications the next time the Communicator module performs a communication to that receiver.
NOTE: Packets will start being encrypted only after the next event is sent to that receiver, or if the unit is restarted.
Before leaving the installation site, the Communicator TL2603GR Ethernet line shall be connected via an APPROVED (acceptable to the local authorities)
Network Interface Device (NID) (e.g., for UL Installations, UL60950 listed NID). All wiring shall be performed according to the local electrical codes.

that number. The User can program their own mobile telephone numbers at the keypad using [*] [6] <> “SMS Programming”. The
SMS Command and Control feature utilize the SMS messaging service provided by the Cellular network and is subject to the limitations of SMS messaging. These limitations include delayed messages and lack of guaranteed delivery.
NOTE: SMS Command and Control (Sections [601] - [618] will only process messages from the mobile telephone numbers programmed in this Section if SMS Command and Control is enabled [301][ 3] ON. SMS responses are listed in Sections [621] [630]. A blank telephone number is disabled.
SMS COMMAND AND CONTROL FUNCTIONS
Users can send SMS text messages from their mobile phone to the communicator cellular phone number assigned to their system. Commands are only accepted from telephone numbers that have been programmed in Sections [311]-[318]. The system will reject messages
sent from telephone numbers that are not on the programmed list.
When the received SMS text matches a valid Section message, the function is performed on the control panel. Text messages are not
case sensitive and extra spaces are ignored. A User Access Code may be required for some SMS messages.
The User can send just the partition number or the complete label.(e.g., “Away arm Partition 2 1234” is treated the same as “away arm
2 1234”).
The SMS Message format is in 3 parts: Command, Partition Label (or only the partition number), and Access Code.
• If an Access Code is included in the message, it is sent to the control panel for validation, along with the requested function.
• If the panel is configured to require an Access Code and the code is not sent (or invalid) the panel will fail the function (unsuccessful).
• If the panel fails the function, an SMS response message is sent to the user. The SMS response will echo the command sent, followed
by the label “unsuccessful”. (e.g., “night arm partition 2 1234 unsuccessful”).
• The partition label or partition number may be excluded from the SMS request in a single partition system (e.g., disarm 9123).

COMMUNICATOR STATUS, INITIALIZATION, DIAGNOSTICS AND TROUBLESHOOTING
[984] Communicator Status
The communicator status sections are intended to provide the installer with real-time status of the communicator’s functionality, operational readiness, failures, and potential malfunctions that may affect flawless operation of the communicator and its primary function of
sending signal to the central station in case the monitored event occurs.
The communicator status is displayed in the form of a 6-digit CODE (6 hexadecimal numbers) as in the following pattern: 00000F. The
range of the code is from: 00000F – 2220CF. Not all numbers in this range are assigned a status code (Some numbers are skipped, i.e.
not assigned the code).
Each digit represents a status or trouble indicator (or assigned function when no trouble is present) as described below:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Digit 1 - Signal Indicator 1, displays the presence/strength of signal 1.
Digit 2 - Signal Indicator 2, displays the presence/strength of signal 2.
Digit 3 - Network Indicator, displays the presence (operational status) of network.
Digit 4 & 5 – TROUBLE INDICATOR displays the type of problem/malfunction on communicator or modules associated with and
connected to communicator.
5. Digit 6 – Reserved for future use.
For example, status code 11002F – when interpreted means: “Signal Indicator 1 OK, Signal indicator 2 OK, there is no network trouble,
and there is trouble in the communicator, Panel supervision trouble.” For details see the table below:

The communicator status codes will indicate the signal levels with digit 1 and 2, a network status with digit 3, and the trouble status
with digit 4 and 5 as indicated in table above. For example status code 11000F would display following status:
1 – On = Signal indicator 1, is ON
1 – On = Signal indicator 2, is ON
0 – OFF = Network indicator, network is working
00 – TROUBLE INDICATOR = there is no trouble on the communicator.
F – Future code not assigned yet. It is sixth hexadecimal digit. It could be also ‘ - ‘ (dash) instead of letter F (11000-).
In this example both signal indicators are on indicating that communicator has excellent signal level; the network indicator is OFF
showing that we do no have any network problems and trouble indicators are both OFF indicating that we don’t have any trouble on the
communicator.
[985] Radio Initialization Status
The radio initialization status is intended to provide the installer with real-time status of radio communication. The radio initialization
status is displayed in an 8 bit toggle option. Each digit indicates one task in the radio initialization process as follows:
1. Radio power up
2. Received the SMS from C24
3. Radio reset
4. Radio attached to network
5. Receiver 1 Initialized
6. Receiver 2 Initialized
7. Receiver 3 Initialized
8. Receiver 4 Initialize
The following table shows each digit position in the status code, each digit’s value and its assigned meaning in the eight-digit code:
