  • 26. 3 mobile numbers can be pre-set, where the SDS will send the alarm messages to. In order to do so, a SIM card (with the security pin disabled) must be located in the slot of the GSM modem, which is at the rear of the SDS. Paramount conditions: -  Insert a valid SIM card in the GSM modem -  Modem must be connected -  Modem must have signal and its led must have a green light, which must blink slowly (pulse-type) Important: always put the country code at the beginning of the mobile numbers.
