QUICK START GUIDE (start here for the most basic set up)

QUICK

For those that want the most simple of features, the device is set up with default settings that more than likely suit your task. Get up & running within minutes.

Add additional features by following the manual to set other Security features & Authorised Users.

 a) Make the Minimum Connections

Connect an input power supply 12-24V AC or DC. Connect the device to be controlled to the output 1 switch. It is a voltage free open contact. It can also be configured to be a closed switch going open on activation by moving the blue jumper next to the relay to the opposite pins.

If you aren't using the GSM intercom, USB for PC software or Weigand Output, just ignore those connections.

 b) Insert any Activated SIM card

Insert the SIM card gold contacts down with the cut off corner to the top RHS as shown on the lid diagram.

If using an 02 or Orange UK PAYG SIM card, send this text message first before any other:  ;+SPO=10;

 c) Power Up & wait for the Blue LED to start flashing

Switch on the power supply. The LED's flash in a particular way while starting up and then change when G2 is ready for use. Check that the LED's conform to the following table:

LED

STATUS (FLASHING)

BLUE (START UP)

SOLID

YELLOW (START UP)

FLASHES ONCE PER SECOND

RED (START UP)

FLASHES WHILE READING SIM CARD ONLY

BLUE (READY)

FLASHES TO INDICATE SIGNAL (1 LOW - 5 MAX.)

YELLOW (READY)

FLASHES ONCE PER 5 SECONDS

RED (READY)

OFF

d) Set a User Phone Number to Test...

The device is set by default to switch Relay Output 1 & by Authorised Users only so you must first add one.

IMPORTANT: If using an 02 UK PAYT SIM card, send this text message first before any other:  ;+SPO=10;

Now Send this SMS text message...

;+CLP1=XXXXXXXXXXX;   where XXXXXXXXXXX = the authorised User phone number 

e) Call G2 to test the Caller ID output...

Dial the number of the SIM card in G2 from the number just programmed above. It will recognise the number and switch the output. You will here a tone and a click.

f) Set an Intercom Call button to Test...

You can set up to 5 number that the intercom will call. 

Now Send this SMS text message...

;+ATN1=XXXXXXXXXXX;   where XXXXXXXXXXX = the User phone number to be called

To set more numbers...

;+ATN1=XXXXXXXXXXX;ATN2=XXXXXXXXXXX;ATN3=XXXXXXXXXXX;    and so on .....  where XXXXXXXXXXX = the User phone numbers to be called in this order

 CALLER ID DEVICE CONTROL [CLIP] mobile phone dialing in to switch G2

Set up G2 to control your gate, barrier, heating or whatever else you choose to control.  The feature can be configured in 2 work modes; 'Authorised Caller' or 'Any Caller'. Authorised Caller is the default setting.

 

a) Disable the CLIP Feature (CLPEN=0)

To temporarily disable the CLIP feature, send text: ;+CLPEN=0;

- This will not affect any Authorised Callers already set up

b) * Enable CLIP  'Authorised Callers Only - 200 Users' (CLPEN=1) (default setting)

To enable the 'Authorised User List', send text: ;+CLPEN=1;

- Only Users on the list can switch the device.

 c) Enable CLIP  'Any Caller Mode' - Unlimited Users (CLPEN=2)

To enable 'Any Caller Mode' , send text: ;+CLPEN=2;

- This mode is less secure as any incoming call will switch the device.

 d) Choose which Output to Switch (CLPOU=1)

The CLIP feature can be used with only one Output. G2 V.2 will have dual output switching on separate numbers.

To enable output 1, send text: ;+CLPOU=1;

To enable output 2, send text: ;+CLPOU=2;

e) Link the CLIP feature to an actived Input in order to enable  (CLPI=0)

The CLIP feature can be used in conjunction with an Input which means the Input must be active before teh CLIP feature can operate. An example is a ground induction loop that must be driven onto before the barrier/gate or device can be activated. This prevents remote control of the device unless another physical parameter is met.

i.) If Input 1 is to be used to arm the CLIP feature, send SMS text: ;+CLPI=1;  (note: ;LN1=0;)

- The device can only be switched by the CLIP feature if Input 1 is active

ii.) If Input 2 is to be used to arm the CLIP feature, send SMS text: ;+CLPI=2;  (note: ;LN2=0;)

- The device can only be switched by the CLIP feature if Input 1 is active

iii.) To enable the CLIP feature without activating an Input, send SMS text: ;+CLPI=0;

- The device can be switched by the CLIP feature as normal without any Input connection

 f) Retrieve the 200 User List in Full or in Parts to Delete or Add New Users (PCLP=xy,xx)

You can retrieve all or some of the Authorised Callers by sending SMS text message:  ;PCLP=xy,xx;  (where xy,xx = the range between User positions in the device memory.

The device will reply  with your selected range of User slots to show the vacant and occupied slots.

Tip: Allocate sections of the CLIP User memory to groups of Users for quick retrieval by SMS text message.

example: CLP1 - CLP50 (Internal Staff)  CLP51 , CLP100 (Drivers)  CLP101 - CLP150 (Visitors) etc...

Tip: If you want to find the List position of an 'existing Driver' in order to delete the phone number, or just 'add a new Driver' to the list, you request only that section of the User List with SMS text message:  ;PCLP=51,100;

- only that section will be returned with currently occupied positions and any free positions.

To Edit the User List:

1. Select 'Forward Message' in your mobile phone text options and choose the SIm card number of G2

2. Edit the message received to either 'add or delete' the Users as required

3. Send the edited message back to the device

 g) Add or delete Authorised Callers (CLP1 - CLP200)

To add 'Authorised Callers' to the 200 User list, you must enter the phone number in a vacant slot in the list. By SMS Text message, you can request individual slots or a range of any 2 numbers between 1 - 200.

ie: Retrieve the first 20 slots from the list, send text:  ;PCLP=1,20;

ie: Retrieve more slots from the list, send text:  ;PCLP=21,50;

... and so on

Depending on how many User slots you request, you will receive 1 or multiple replies including the current CLIP setup as above and the Occupied & Vacant for the selected range.

Example:

;PCLP=1,3;

- You will receive a reply as follows

;CLPEN=1;CLPOU=1;CLP1=;CLP2=;CLP3=;

1. Select 'Forward Message' in your mobile phone text options.

2. Edit the message as required by adding the numbers you want to add. Note the + symbol. This means a reply confirmation will be returned. Omit the + to disable the reply:

;+CLPEN=1;CLPOU=1;CLP1=077965124589;CLP2=02074561254;CLP3=02074561253;

3. Send the message back to the SIM card in the device to update the settings.

h) To delete Authorised Users

Remove the number between the = and ; symbols that you want to delete. Note the + symbol. This means a reply confirmation will be returned. Omit the + to disable the reply:

;+CLPEN=1;CLPOU=1;CLP1=077965124589;CLP2=;CLP3=;

i) Automatic Re-CLIP function (auto close pulse for gates not set to auto close)

About: After a CLIP command (caller ID incoming call) is received, G2 switches the output as set.

If the auto re-clip feature is set, G2 looks at the input number set in CLPRI and will automatically make a second pulse of the same output if the input hasn't been triggered within a set time to indicate a photocell has been passed.

The time window for this function is set using CLPRT. Ie: If the input remains active for longer than this time, the G2 will not automatically repulse the output.

Why?

If an automatic gate is set as 'press to open' & 'press to close', this function acts as an automatic second pulse to close the gate without actually having to press anything. It checks the input to make sure it's safe first. Your safety beam contact would be wired through the G2 input so G2 can check if they are obstructed or not before sending the close pulse. If the featre times out, G2 does not switch.

Also useful in case an garage or gate was opened remotely by mobile phone inadvertently. The G2 will check the input is not active (ie saftey beam broken) and it will pulse to close making it very secure.

;CLRPI=X; Input number for auto reclip function (X = the input number ie: 1 or 2)

;CLPRT=XX; Time window (XX = the time frame in seconds within which the G2 will check the input)

 SET UP TO 5 AUTHORISED ADMINISTRATORS FOR PROGRAMMING & ALERTS

Authorised Administrators are 'authorised' to program the device by SMS text & also receive SMS text alerts for various event as set by parameter LN.  By 'linking' events (LN1 - LN5) to Authorised Administrators, you can select certain Administrators to receive alerts for some or all events.

 a) Add or delete Authorised Administrator Mobile Numbers (TN1 - TN5)

Send this SMS text message to receive a list of Current Authorised Administrators:  ;PTN;

- You will receive a reply:  ;TN1=;TN2=;TN3=;TN4=;TN5=;

TN1

 07798765140

 Authorised Administrator 1 (default for all SMS alerts)

TN2

 xxxxxxxxxxx

 Authorised Administrator 2

TN3

 xxxxxxxxxxx

 Authorised Administrator 3

TN4

 xxxxxxxxxxx

 Authorised Administrator 4

TN5

 xxxxxxxxxxx

 Authorised Administrator 5

To change the above example setting, send:  ;TN1=07798765140;TN2=;TN3=;TN4=;TN5=;

 b) Set up Active Authorised Administrator Mobile Numbers (SL)

You can allow any mobile number to program G2 by SMS text by leaving it as the default setting. If you want to restrict programming to a limited number of Administrators, send this SMS text message to receive the currently set Security Level:  ;PSL;

- You will receive a reply:  ;SL=0; 

Reply to the message and set one of the following parameters to allow numbers in your Authorised Administrator list to program the G2 exclusively.

Security Level  SMS Text Commands

Description

;+SL=0;

Any number will be accepted (DEFAULT)

;+SL=1;

 Only Authorised Administrator TN1 is allowed

 Only Authorised Administrators TN1 - TN3 are allowed

;+SL=4;

 Only Authorised Administrators TN1 - TN4 are allowed

;+SL=5;

 Only Authorised Administrators TN1 - TN5 are allowed

 

 To change the setting, send:  ;+SL=X;  Where 'X' = your chosen security level as detailed above

c) Link Events from Inputs or Preset Events to Authorised Administrators (LN1 - LN6)

Linking events to Authorised Administrators enables you to direct alerts to the most suitable people.

You can add multiple Administrators per alert by adding just the number of the Administrator 1 - 5 after the LN command for each alert.

Alerts SMS Text Commands  (x = Auth. Admin.1 - 5)

Description

;+LN1=xxxxx;

 Activity on Input 1

;+LN2=xxxxx;

 Activity on Input 2

;+LN3=xxxxx;

 Periodic Test Alert

;+LN4=xxxxx;

 Low Credit Alert

;+LN5=xxxxx;

 NAC (Non-Authorised Call or SMS text)

;+LN6=xxxxx;

 Event Log Buffer Full (1000 events)

To change the setting, send:  ;+LNx=y;  

Where 'x' = The 'Alert Link' number as above (LN1 - LN6)

Where 'y' = The 'Authorised Administrator' number/s as detailed above (TN1 - TN5)

Note: You can add more than 1 Adminsitrator: Just add the numbers ie: ;+LN1=123;

CALLER ID EVENT LOG

Calls made to the SIM card in G2 are Events and are logged by Date, Time, Phone Number, Output & Authorised / Non-Authorisd Status.  Activity on the Inputs is also logged by Active & Restored Status. Up to 1000 events are logged.

The Event Log can be requested in various ways by both SMS Text Message & PC via the onboard mini USB port to ensure quick and simple retrieval of Events within the entire Log.

 a) Set up the Self Updating Clock (UDC)

G2 will send itself an SMS text message after it loses power to refresh the clock with the Network Operators Clock.

To set the feature, enter the mobile number of the SIM card you have put into G2 by sending this SMS text:  ;+UDC=XXXXXXXXXXX;

 b) Change the Event Log Buffer from Auto Clear to Manual Clear & Send Alert at 900 events (ALC)

The Event Log is full at 1000 Events. By default, G2 will automatically clear the event log when it is full. You can change this for 'Manual Log Clear' by sending an SMS text message.

;+ALC=0; (Event Log will send an SMS text alert when 900 Events are in the device - User must clear*) ;+ALC=1; (Event Log will automatically clear after 1000 Events are in the device) DEFAULT SETTING

*With Automatic Log Clear set, you can still request the event log at any time and retrieve log events. If you retreive log events regularly and save them, you can use the manual Log clear at any time by sending SMS text message:  ;LCLR;

The Event Log will then start from 0001 again.

 c) Request Event Log by SMS Text Message (PLOG) 

To return the Events by either SMS Text Message, first you should set the default amounts of events to be returned. Note by SMS text message, each log is sent in 1 message so 5 events will send 5 messages.

The default amount of SMS logs is 5.

1. To request the events, send this SMS text:  ;PLOG;

- The G2 will only send you the most recent 5 events.

                                                                                                                                                  

To clear the device and start a fresh event log send SMS:  ;LCLR;

 d) Set the default amount of Events to receive by SMS Text Message (LOGN)

Note: You will receive the most recent events in individual SMS text messages

The default amount of events sent is 5.

To change it:

1. First send this command  ;LOGN=10;

2. Then send this command to get the events  ;PLOG;

- 10 events will be returned.

 e) Request how many Events are in the Current Event Log (PLOG=?)

To return how many events are in the current Log memory, send this SMS text message  ;PLOG=?; 

 f) Request Event Logs between a set range of Total Events (PLOG=xy,xx)

Send this SMS text message with a range of event logs: ;PLOG=xy,xx; (where 'xy,xx' = the range of event log numbers)

 g) How to find the most Recent Events 

If you want to know the most recent events, first you need to check how many Events are currently in the device. Send the SMS text message: ;PLOG=?;

- The reply will be:   Num. of LOG Entries:95   (95 is an example only)

From this point you know you have '95' events in memory so send this SMS text message to retrieve the most recent 5 events: ;PLOG=90,95;

 h) After Retrieving & Saving the Event Log to your PC, Erase completely by SMS Text (LCLR)

Send this SMS text message to clear all events and start a fresh Event Log:  ;LCLR;

 OUTPUTS FOR SWITCHING DEVICES

G2 has 2 outputs which switch in the same way however the outputs are completely different. Output 1 is a voltage free contact which is set open by default. It closes when it is activated and makes a voltage free connection between the 2 terminals marked 'relay'.

Output 2 is different in the sense that it is not voltage free when it is activated. It supplies 300mA max. from the 2 terminals marked Out 2 GND & Out 2 +12VDC. It supplies a voltage near to 12VDC depending on your input supply voltage and is designed to power low consumption 12VDC devices such as relays.

 a) Request Current Output Switch Status Pulse, Latch, Timed, 1st call ON / 2nd OFF (POS)

Send this SMS text message to receive the current configuration of each output:   ;POS;

- You will receive a reply like this: ;OS1=5;OS2=5;

 b) Request Current Output State  (PORC)

Send this SMS text message to receive the current state of each output:   ;PORC;

- You will receive a reply like this:   ;Output 1=OFF;Output 2=OFF;

 c) Change Output Switching Status Pulse, Latch, Timed, 1st call ON / 2nd call OFF (OS1 & OS2)

By default, both outputs are set 'Normally Open' & will pulse closed for 5 seconds. Both outputs can be configured to switch in various ways to suit multiple applications.

Output Setup SMS Commands (x = output number 1 or 2)

Description

;+OSx=0;

- To switch Output 1 ON by SMS text message, send SMS text message:  ;+ORC1=1;

- To switch Output 1 OFF by SMS text message, send SMS text message:  ;+ORC1=0;

- To switch Output 2 ON by SMS text message, send SMS text message:  ;+ORC2=1;

- To switch Output 2 OFF by SMS text message, send SMS text message:  ;+ORC2=0;

Note: If you have the Output Status (OS) set to '1', the contact is latching. In this case, switch the output OFF using the OFF commands above. If you have the Output Status (OS) set to 'any other number', it is a pulse time contact so you don't need to switch it off. It switches off after yoiur chosen time.

 SET UP INPUTS FOR SMS TEXT ALERTS or GSM INTERCOM CALL BUTTONS

The Inputs are used for 2 functions. SMS Text Alarms & Call Buttons. With any type of sensor ie: door contacts / motion / temperature / water level etc, connected to the inputs, SMS Text Alerts can be sent to Authorised Administrators as set by the Links (LN)

 a) Change how inputs trigger & whether an SMS text is sent to notify 'input restored' (IN1 & IN2)

IN = 0 : Normally Open – triggered by linking Input to a negative voltage (GND) DEFAULT

IN = 1 : Normally Close – breaking a closed voltage loop (between Input & +12VDC or GND)

IN = 2 : Normally Open – triggered by linking Input to a positive voltage (+12VDC)

IN = 3 : not used

IN = 4 : [Same as IN = 0] + input restored SMS text sent when Input is not active anymore

IN = 5 : [Same as IN = 1] + input restored SMS text sent when Input is not active anymore

IN = 6 : [Same as IN = 2] + input restored SMS text sent when Input is not active anymore

- To change Input 1 Status, send SMS text message:  ;+IN1=x; where 'x' = the status number (0-6)

- To change Input 2 Status, send SMS text message:  ;+IN2=x;  where 'x' = the status number (0-6)

 b) Change the time delay before SMS text alerts are sent after inputs activated (ID1 & ID2)

Change the delay time in which SMS text alerts are sent. By default they send immediately when the input is activated. You can set a delay so that the input must be activated for a time period before the alert is sent:

- To delay Input 1 alerts, send SMS text message:  ;+ID1=xx; where 'xx' = the delay time in seconds

- To delay Input 2 alerts, send SMS text message:  ;+ID2=xx; where 'xx' = the delay time in seconds

 

 c) Request the current Device labels for the SMS Text Alerts (P#)

To return the current device labels for location & inputs, send this SMS text message:  ;P#;

- You will receive a reply like this:   ;User Location, Input 1, Activity in Progress!

 d) Change the label printed on the SMS text alert sent related to Device (#0LOCATION)

To change the label for Device/User Location, send this SMS text message:  ;+#0MY_HOUSE=1;

- The Name label can be changed up to a maximum of 14 characters including spaces.

 e) Change the label printed on the SMS text alert sent related to Input 1 (#1INPUT 1)

To change the label for Input 1, send this SMS text message:  ;+#1SENSOR_OUT=1;

- The Name label can be changed up to a maximum of 14 characters including spaces.

 f) Change the label printed on the SMS text alert sent related to Input 2 (#2INPUT 2)

To change the label for Input 2, send this SMS text message:  ;+#2SENSOR_TWO=1;

- The Name label can be changed up to a maximum of 14 characters including spaces.

 GSM INTERCOM SET UP

By enabling Inputs 1 and/or 2 as Call Buttons, a preset list of phone numbers can be called one after the other for 2 way communication. With a preset trip delay between the numbers, Voicemail can be prevented from interupting the calling process.

Step 1: Connect power input, call button, 12VDC OUT & audio wires as shown. 

Step 2: Connect power, call button and audio cable to call point terminals.

Step 3: Program the system by SMS text messages as follows

 a) Firstly, enable the Inputs to be used as GSM intercom Call Buttons (WMOD)

You must enable the Inputs as Call Buttons to use the intercom feature. Wire call button into Input 1 or 2 then...

To enable Input 1 as a call button Input, send Text: ;+WMOD=1;

To enable Input 2 as a call button Input, send Text: ;+WMOD=2;

To enable both Input 1 & 2 as a call button Inputs, send Text: ;+WMOD=12;

 b) Set Up the Numbers called by Call Button 1 (PDEA)

To retrieve the current settings, send Text: ;PDEA;

- You will receive a reply as follows:

;ATN1=;ATN2=;ATN3=;ATN4=;ATN5=;RTNA=15;

Select 'Forward Message' from your mobile phone text options & choose the intercom's SIM No.

Edit the message as required by adding the the numbers you want the intercom to call in order starting at ATN1 as follows:

;+ATN1=077965124589;ATN2=02074561254;ATN3=;ATN4=;ATN5=;RTNA=15;

 c) Set Up the delay timer before dialing the next number (RTNA)

The time delay is set at 15 seconds by default. If you want to change this time up or down, send text:  ;+RTNA=xx;  where 'xx' = the time in seconds.

 d) Set Up the Numbers called by Call Button 2 (PDEB)

To retrieve the current settings, send Text: ;PDEB;

- You will receive a reply as follows:

;BTN1=;BTN2=;BN3=;BTN4=;BTN5=;RTNB=15;

Select 'Forward Message' for your mobile phone text options.

Edit the message as required by adding the numbers you want the intercom to call in order as follows:

;+BTN1=077965124589;BTN2=02074561254;BTN3=;BTN4=;BTN5=;RTNB=20;

 e) Set Up the delay timer before dialing the next number (RTNB)

The time delay is set at 15 seconds by default.

If you need to change this up or down, send text:  ;+RTNA=xx;  where 'xx' = the time in seconds.

 f) Door Release 

The User hangs up the call & speed dials the G2 back from an authorised phone. When the G2 is called back, an audible beep is played from the call point speaker as the door unlocks. The entry event is logged.

i) The number of the SIM card in G2 should be set as a preset 1 press speed-dial on the User's phone

ii) The preset speed-dial button can be used for door release at any time

 LED DISPLAY

The LED's are to indicate what is happening on the device at any given time.

 1.   BLUE   GSM Network Signal Strength  (1 Flash = Low Signal  /  5 Flashes = Maximum Signal)

If the Blue is on solid, the device is not connected to the network. You will find that red is also on or flashing on/off. This indicates something is not right with the network and could be antenna, or SIm card related.

 2.    RED    Device / Connection / Network Fault  

Red will flash during start up to indicate the processor is reading the SIM card. It will also flash if the device is erasing data when prompted. It should not be on at all during normal operation. If the Red is solid or flashing at any time other than the initial 30 - 60 seconds after power up while the device logs onto the network; you have a fault somewhere.

Red indicates something is not right in general and could be to do with the network, antenna, SIM card, connections or hardware damage. Check carefully starting with your wiring connections. Then try the device in a different 'open air' location. Failing that try a differnt network SIM card. Visually inspect the hardware and look for any obvious damage or foreign objects on the PCB.

 3.   YELLOW   GSM Network  (1 Flash/sec. = Registering  &  1 Flash per 5 sec.  = On Network)

The Yellow is only related to the Network initial registration & then reporting that the device is currently on the network. If the Yellow is not flashing once every 5 seconds, it is not on the GSM Network.

 TROUBLESHOOTING

Check the status of the LED's first and check the LED descriptions to provide a general idea of what to look at first.

    a) Device won’t connect to the GSM network

-  Move the G2 to another location

-  Try another SIM card or check the SIM card PIN code request is disabled

-  Connect the optional external antenna

-  Check supply voltage is sufficient

    b) General audio interference during intercom calls

     -  Make sure you have all cable screens (metal bare wire around coloured cores) connected to GND

     -  The bare wire screen of the 2 pair audio cable must be connected to GND both ends

     -  Use a Switch mode 12VDC regulated power supply 1 amp minimum. 

     -  Don’t run other equipment on the same power supply as the GSM intercom

     -  Keep the intercom audio cable & antenna away from mains power cables as best as possible

     -  Keep the antenna outside any metal enclosures or fit an optional external antenna

     -  Connect any metal panel enclosures to GND especially if mounted to a steel post

     -  Check the audio terminal connections are not loose (yellow, white, brown, green)

     -  Lower the microphone level on the GSM call panel 

     c)  Whistling or interference all the time or during a call

     -  Lower the microphone level on the GSM call panel

      d)  Device won’t respond and blue LED is solid

     -  GSM Network Signal issue

     -  SIM card not inserted correctly

     -  Try different SIM card

     -  Check antenna connection

     -  Make sure antenna is not inside a metal enclosure

     e)  SMS Programming won't work

     -  Check SL (Security Level). The number you are sending the commands from may not be authorised

     -  Check SIM card is on the network (see LED display)

 f)  Voicemail cuts in before my intercom call transfers to the second number

-  Change RTNA (button1 ) or RTNB (Button 2) to a higher number. This will make the call ring longer.

     g) Speaker Level is too low / high    

     -  Adjust SPK up or in Miscellaneous Parameters

     h) Red LED is solid

     - Check connections and polarity on GSM controller & intercom interface PCB

     - Check PCB components visually to locate obvious damage

     - Check power supply input voltage is sufficient

          i)  Red LED is Flashing

     -  Fit external antenna

-  Relocate controller

-  Change Network SIM card

     j)  If your issue is not listed here

     -    Contact your Supplier for Support

 


[1]N/O: Normally Open [Open going Closed] This is a commonly used switching configuration for most devices. The contact is open when in a deactivated state. When it activates, the contact closes.

N/C: Normally Closed [Closed going open] This switching method is most commonly used with magnetic locks. Magnetic locks require power to be applied during a deactivated state. When activated, the contact opens and removes power from the magnetic lock thus releasing it.
