  2. 2. Comfort GSM Module CHAPTER 1 UCM/GSM Features The UCM/GSM provides a cellular phone connection to Comfort. This gives Comfort the following abilities; 1. Acts as a backup for alarm dial-out when the land line is faulty or cut. Alternately, it can be used without a fixed telephone line, for installations where a telephone line is not available or not desired. 2. Allows the user to dial to the GSM number instead of the fixed telephone line to access Comfort menus. There is no voicemail on this line. 3. Allows Comfort to report alarms to the users cellular phones via SMS (Short Message Service). For Comfort Pro, the SMS message will show numeric information corresponding to the alarm type and zone number, user number or module ID. For Comfort Ultra, the SMS message will show the alarm type and Zone description as text. 4. Allows users to send commands to control home appliances and the security system via SMS. In order for the UCM/GSM to be used, there must be a GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) service in the area. GSM is currently widely available is Europe and Asia. Refer to http://www.gsmworld.com/roaming/index.shtml for network operators worldwide that offer services from the GSM family of Wireless Communications. Specific details included within this section are network, roaming, services and coverage information for over 500 operators in 207 countries/areas of the world. The UCM/GSM operates on dual-band frequency i.e. 900 MHz and 1800 MHz. It currently does not support 1900 MHz which is used in the US. The UCM/GSM requires a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card to be inserted, just like with a cellular phone. This can be a prepaid card, or one which is billed monthly according to a usage plan. Requirements 1. Comfort Controller PCB Rev E6 with U1 Firmware O4.222 Comfort PRO model) or Action 4.221 (Comfort Ultra model). Comfort PCB revisions prior to E6 are NOT able to support the UCM/GSM. 2. Comfigurator version 1.4.0 and above. 2
  3. 3. Comfort GSM Module SIM Card A SIM (Subscriber Information Card) must be used in the GSM Module. This may be a prepaid card or one which is billed monthly as part of a service plan. However, it is not advisable to use a prepaid card as the user would not know when the amount remaining has been used up. If SMS is to be sent, then the card must allow sending of SMS. If incoming SMS commands are to be accepted, then Caller ID must be enabled. This may incur an additional charge. The SIM card will come with a telephone number. Use this number to dial to the system via the GSM module. Contents of UCM/GSM Kit UCM/GSM module consisting of; 1. UCM with firmware GSM5.XX. This is NOT a regular UCM which can be used to program Comfort or learn infrared codes. 3
  4. 4. Comfort GSM Module 2. Antenna with 2 meter cable and FME connector 3. Serial cable with Male-male 8 way D connectors 4. Audio cable: telephone cable with 4 way telephone plug (RJ9) at one end and 5 way connector at the other end. 4
  5. 5. Comfort GSM Module 5. Power Supply Cable with 6 way (RJ11) plug at one end and a 2 way terminal block at the other end 6. GSM modem. 5
  6. 6. Comfort GSM Module CHAPTER 2 SETUP Location Ensure that the location where the module is mounted has sufficiently good reception for the GSM Network. The signal strength can be tested using the SW8-H jumper as described in the Jumper Settings section below. The UCM/GSM can be located several hundred meters away from the Comfort controller so that it should be possible to find a location where the reception is good. Connections 1. Connect the antenna to the GSM Module by screwing it to the FME connector. Place the antenna outside any metal casing which may be used to house the UCM/GSM module. The base of the antenna is magnetic and can sit on a metal surface like the Comfort enclosure. 6
  7. 7. Comfort GSM Module 2. Connect the 6-way RJ11 telephone jack of the power cable to the GSM Module. 3 signals need to be connected to the Comfort controller board; Pin Signal Colour Comfort 1 VCC Blue 12V 4 TO_IN Red 12V 6 GND White 0v/COM The other signals are left unconnected. The supply voltage and ground signals are reverse polarity and overvoltage-protected on the GSM Module. The Comfort end of the cable is terminated in a two way terminal block for convenience. If necessary, remove the wires from the terminal block and connect them to the appropriate terminals 12V and 0V on Comfort. 3. Connect the 4 way telephone jack of the audio cable to the GSM module. The other end is connected to the white J23 header on Comfort. This header exists only the Comfort PCB Rev E6 and not on previous PCB versions. 7
  8. 8. Comfort GSM Module 4. Connect the serial DB9 to DB9 cables between the GSM Module and the UCM serial connectors. 5. Remove the SIM card cover and insert the SIM card as Shown. 8
  9. 9. Comfort GSM Module UCM Jumper Settings SW7 - UCM ID The SW7 ID shunts on the UCM/GSM should be set to ID in the range 2 to 8 as in the table below. ID - SW7 SW7- A SW7 - B SW7 - C 1 Short Short Short 2 Open Short Short 3 Short Open Short 4 Open Open Short 5 Short Short Open 6 Open Short Open 7 Short Open Open 8 Open Open Open ID=1 is reserved for the UCM used for programming with Comfigurator. Do not set the UCM/GSM id to 1. Set the ID to one which is not used by any UCM installed in the system. For example if ID=2 for C-Bus and UCM=3 for Smartfit has been installed, then ID=4 should be used. This ID should correspond with the “Number of UCMs” setting in Comfigurator > Modules and Settings screen. SW8 Positions A to G are unused. Position H is open for normal operation and shunted to give signal strength indication on the LEDS RDY, BUSY1, BUSY2, ERR. 9
  10. 10. Comfort GSM Module Indicator LEDs UCM Communication Status LEDs LED Function D9 (R) RS485 Transmit to Comfort D10 (G) RS485 Receive from Comfort D11 (G) RS232 Receive from GSM Modem D12 (R) RS232 Transmit to GSM Modem LEDS with SW8-H Shunted (Signal Strength) SW8-H Shunted Signal Strength RDY BUSY1 BUSY2 ERR 1 = Poor Off Off Off On 2 = Fair Off Off On On 3 = Good Off On On On 4,5 = Excellent On On On On Signal strength is updated every 2 seconds The signal strength indications will override the GSM operation status changes. Warning: Do not shunt SW8-H during reset otherwise, the UCM will report signal strength of 0 to Comfort and the GSM will not operate correctly until there is a change in signal strength. Also do not keep the SW8-H shunted permanently to avoid this problem when the UCM is reset for any reason. Always remove the shunt after checking signal strength. LEDS with SW8-H open (Normal) With SW8-H header open (normal operation), the meaning of the 4 indicator LEDs are shown below; RDY Indicates UCM/GSM is initialized, normal operation BUSY1 Steady Initialisation/Comms error with GSM Module BUSY 2 Steady Call In Progress ERR No Network 10
  11. 11. Comfort GSM Module Modem Status LED A green LED on the GSM modem gives the following status; Operating State LED After switching on On after 4 seconds Switch off Off Standby or Talk Flashing No Network, network search, no SIM card, no PIN Integrated Circuits on UCM U1 - Microcontroller IC with Firmware marked “GSM 5.xx” U5 - RS485 transceiver for Comfort communications. U6 - RS232 transceiver for GSM Modem communications. What to Watch Out For Once the UCM is connected with the ID setting set correctly, the LEDs D10 (Green) and D9 (red) will flash continuously, and the RDY green LED should stay on. The RDY LED indicates that the UCM firmware is running. D10 indicates RS485 data is being received from Comfort, and D9 indicates the UCM is replying with RS485 data to Comfort. The BUSY1, BUSY2, and ERROR LEDs should be off. If the RDY LED is not on, press the RESET button on the UCM. This may happen when connecting the UCM 4 way cable to Comfort without turning off power. RESET on the UCM usually starts the UCM operating correctly. 11
  12. 12. Comfort GSM Module CHAPTER 3 PROGRAMMING AND OPERATION Comfigurator > Number of UCMs In Comfigurator Modules and Settings screen, set the Number of UCMs according to the number of UCMs in the system. UCM ID=1 is reserved for the UCM used for upload/download with Comfigurator, even if it is not used or connected to Comfort. There should not be any unused UCM Ids, e.g. if the number of UCMs is 4, then UCM Ids 2,3 and 4 should be used. Programming for SMS Dial-out Programming SMS Phone Type 1. To program a cellular phone for SMS reporting, go to Security > Phone Numbers, and select the phone index 1 to 8 which will be programmed for SMS. Comfigurator 1.4.0 and above is required to support SMS Phone Types 2. Click on the Phone Type column to reveal the pull-down menu and select SMS. 1. Enter the phone number of the cellular phone for SMS reporting. The cellular phone must operate in the GSM network (either 900 MHz or 1800 MHz) and be able to receive SMS messages. Check with your cellular operator if you do not know whether your cellular phone and service meets these requirements. The same mobile phone number can be programmed in 2 phone indexes as Voice Phone and SMS. SMS Messages Comfort has a buffer of 12 events for SMS reporting to cater for multiple alarms occurring around the same time. If there is a backlog of 12 SMS events which have not been sent because of network or other problems, new events will not be reported. If SMS messages are not sent because of a temporary loss of signal, they 12
  13. 13. Comfort GSM Module will be sent out when the network communication is restored. However, if there is a communications failure for the UCM/GSM on the RS485 network, SMS messages will be lost and will not be sent out when the communications is restored. SMS Messages for Comfort PRO For Comfort PRO, SMS messages show numeric information in the format; When an alarm is activated, XXXX - YY - ZZ When a trouble alarm is restored or (optionally) if a zone which caused an alarm is restored; XXXX - YY - ZZ-Restore w XXXX is the 4-digit Pager Report Code, which identifies your system. This can be changed in Program Menu, 3 for Security Options, 3 for Pager Report Code. YY is the 2-digit Alarm Type code. See the table below for the list of standard Alarm Type codes. YY Description ZZ YY Description ZZ 1 Intruder Zone 17 Security Off User 2 Duress User 18 CMS Test User 3 Line Cut 01 19 System Armed User 4 Arm Fail User 20 Alarm Abort User 5 Zone Trouble Zone 21 Entry Warning - 6 Zone Alert Zone 22 Siren Trouble - 7 Low Battery ID 23 - - 8 Power Fail 01 24 RS485 Comms ID 9 Panic Zone 25 Doorbell ID 10 Entry Alert Zone 26 - - 11 Tamper Zone 27 Dial Test User 12 Fire Zone 28 CMS Fail - 13 Gas Zone 29 New Message User 14 Family Care Zone 30 Engineer Dial - 15 Perimeter Zone 31 Sign-in Tamper - 16 Bypass Zone Zone Alarm Types w ZZ is the 2-digit Zone number (1 -64) or User number (1-16), depending on the Alarm Type. For example, Intruder alarm type will report zone number, while Arm and Disarm will report user number. w “Restore” is automatically appended for when Trouble alarms like Power Failure, Low Battery, Phone Trouble, RS485 Comms alarms are restored. Reporting of Trouble alarm restore is automatically enabled and does not need to be programmed. 13
  14. 14. Comfort GSM Module w OK may be appended after the message if a zone (input) has been restored after a zone-related alarm, if the Zone Restore field is enabled in Security > Zones/Inputs. For example if zone 3 (window) which caused an intruder alarm has been closed, the SMS message will be XXXX - 01 - 03 Restore The Zone Restore report is enabled in Security > Zone Settings screen. The “Restore” field should be set to “Yes” for each zone which should report when restored. The “Restore” field appears only in Comfigurator 1.4.0 and above. The Zone Restore feature for SMS reporting is normally only useful for monitoring inputs from industrial equipment or machinery, or from smoke and gas sensors where it is important to know whether the monitored sensor has been restored to its normal state after the alarm. It should not be used for alarm sensors like magnetic contacts and Motion detectors where reporting of zone restore would increase the amount of SMS messages transmitted without any useful purpose. For example, a motion detector or PIR (Passive Infrared sensor) would restore after each activation so reporting of restore would double the SMS traffic. Zone Restore can programmed by Engineer Menu 1,4. SMS Messages for Comfort Ultra For Ultra, text information instead of numeric information is reported in the SMS message, e.g. XXXX - Alarm - ZZ Zonename Where the alarm text is the Alarm Name field in Security Types > Alarm Types. For Comfort Ultra, the Alarm Type number is not reported. 14
  15. 15. Comfort GSM Module The name is a single word without any spaces. The default Alarm names can be changed if desired, although it is best to leave them unchanged to maintain consistency with other systems. The Zone Name following the Zone Number ZZ is taken from Security > Zones/Inputs. The Name field will be displayed when that zone is activated to cause an alarm For example, if zone 2 - Kitchen Window causes an intruder alarm, the SMS message will be 1234 - Intruder - 02 KitchenWindow A power failure will be reported as 1234 - PowerFail - 01 In this case, there is no zone/input associated with Power Failure. If a Communications Failure from keypad 1 occurs, the message would be 15
  16. 16. Comfort GSM Module 1234 - RS485Comms - 65 Where 65 is the ID of keypad 1. For a Low Battery on Slave 1 1234 - LowBattery - 33 where 33 is the ID of SEM 1 When Trouble alarms are restored, “Restore” is appended after the message e.g.. 1234 - PowerFail Restore 1234 - 09 LowBattery Restore 1234 - RS485Comms - Restore Note that the ID when restored is not reported Dialing out via GSM Normally, Comfort will not dial to the programmed numbers (maximum 8) by GSM if there is a fixed telephone line connected. It will only do so if it detects that the telephone line is faulty, i.e. has a low voltage on it causing a “Phone Trouble” alarm or is not connected. It also dials out by GSM if the telephone line is working, but a dial tone is not obtained, perhaps by an incoming caller holding on to the connection. Thus, it acts as a backup telephone line to the fixed line for high security installations. If Comfort is connected to an analog extension of a PABX as programmed in Telecoms > Dialing, Comfort will not dial the PABX access digit (9 in the picture below) when dialing via the GSM Module. When dialing to a Voice Phone, Comfort knows when the called party has answered, so unlike a normal 16
  17. 17. Comfort GSM Module dial-out, it will not wait for a “hello” from the line before giving the alarm message. When the telephone line is restored, dial-outs will once again be by the fixed telephone line. Dialing In via GSM To access Comfort using the UCM/GSM, dial the number which comes with the SIM card. Comfort will answer immediately, instead of waiting for the programmed number of rings, and will say “Please Sign In”. There will be no Greeting message, as there answering machine when dialing in via GSM. Enter the user code to access the system as usual. Comfort knows when the calling party has ended the call via GSM, and will clear the line immediately and attend to its other tasks. With a fixed line, Comfort needs to detect busy tone to know that the caller has hung up. Sending SMS Commands to Comfort SMS messages can be sent to Comfort from a cellular phone to perform any programmed action on the Home Control Menu or to arm and disarm the security system. The sending mobile phone number must be programmed as one of the 8 telephone numbers for dial-out in Security > Phone Numbers, as a Voice Phone or SMS phone type. SMS messages from other phone numbers not programmed in the Phone number list will not be accepted. The format of SMS messages to be sent to Comfort are as follows; (menulevel1 menulevel2 menulevel3,...) Where the command is placed between the “(“ and “)” characters. Any characters outside (...) are ignored. Menulevel1, menulevel2, etc. are the menu commands in the User. The numeric commands can be separated by space e.g. (1,2) , or they may be sent without any separator , e.g. (12). Voice Menu (refer to the User Manual for the User Menu Flowchart). Only the Arm Security Menu (Menu 1) and the Home Control Menu (menu 4) can be accessed by SMS messages. To arm and disarm the security system, the following commands are used; (10) Disarm Security System (11) Arm Security to Away Mode (12) Arm Security to Night Mode (13) Arm Security to Day Mode (14) Arm Security to Vacation Mode 17
