Author Topic: Connecting PowerMax+ system to Central Monitoring without landline  (Read 387 times)

I have a PowerMax+ alarm system that is currently being centrally monitored by AR.  I will be discontinuing the use of a landline and wanted to see how I need to setup to have the alarm system monitored without the use of a landline.  I have cell service, internet as well.

I am not sure if there is some sort of module / connection that I need to purchase, as well as how to set it up so that AR can continue with the central monitoring. 

Any help, suggestions on modules/connections/products to use, would be appreciated.

I think internet is out, well maybe you can setup a "telephone line simulator" .  Ebay used to have a bunch but I haven't looked 7-8 years.

GSM modem is a possibililty but I don't know how to judge if the service will be continued in your area.  Mine still works for now and they keep charging me.

from the powermaxplug installer manual:

4.6.5  GSM Line Purpose
Define whether the GSM unit will serve as a backup for the
regular telephone line, as a primary communication
channel or as the only telephone channel or for sending
SMS only.
Available options are: GSM is backup, GSM is primary or
GSM only or SMS only.
