Main functions

  • Bistable remote activation of any system, equipment or device via SMS, up to 250 registered users (e.g. remote boiler ignition, air conditioning, irrigation, lighting, etc.).
  • Monostable remote activation of any system, equipment or device by means of a zero-cost call, with automatic recognition and rejection, up to 250 registered users (e.g. motorized gate opening, electric locks, etc.).
  • Digital remote alarm via SMS and / or call when opening alarm contacts connected to any type of sensor (movement, anti-intrusion, fire, anti-flooding, etc.).

The START-SMS remote control / gate opener has been designed to make installation very simple and quick, its watertight container allows it to be installed outdoors as well. It is possible to connect standard sensors and transducers to its digital inputs, such as those already installed for other measurement and anti-intrusion security systems, such as magnetic contacts, PIR detectors, photocells, to send alarm calls or SMS. It is also possible to customize the SMS messages relating to each input and each output, in order to quickly identify the line that generated an alarm or the device that was activated. It can also be supplied in an assembly kit version.
