Answers to questions of alarm system T6L


Do I need a SIM card to use the T6-L?


The quick answer to that is: No.
The T6-L can be used with a SIM card, OR connected to your landline, or both.
- Using a landline connection enables a basic interaction with your alarm system (by phone call).
- Using a SIM card (sold separately) enables a more advance interaction with your system (by phone call, SMS or app).
- Using both the SIM card and the landline connection offers an optimal security, as you always have a backup in case your landline or your cellular network is down.


Can I use my T6-L without the SIM card?


Yes

The T6-L Control Panel can be used either with a SIM card (GSM mode), plugged to your telephone landline (PSTN mode), or, for optimum security, both (connected to your telephone landline AND with a SIM card).

What if I use my system without only connected to a telephone landline?

 If your T6-L Control Panel is only connected to a landline, you will be informed by phone call in case of intrusion. You can also interact with your control panel by phone call. You cannot however interact with your control panel by SMS or with our iOS and Android apps.


And what if I use my system with a SIM card only?


If there is a SIM card in your control panel, all the features of your control panel can be accessed, provided of course that you have enough credit on the SIM card.

What is the benefit of using the T6-L Control Panel with a SIM card AND plugged to your landline?

For people willing to obtain the maximum level of security, you can use your T6-L Control Panel plugged to your landline and with a SIM card. So for example if an intruder cuts your telephone line, you would be informed by SMS in case the alarm system is triggered.

Alternatively, if for any reason your cellular network fails the day something happens in your home, you can still be informed by phone call thanks to the landline connection. So you are covered in one way or another.


What kind of SIM card shall I use?


The control panel of the T6-L can be used either in GSM mode (with a SIM card) or in PSTN mode (plugged to your telephone landline). In GSM mode, we recommend you to use a SIM card with an unlimited text and one-hour voice plan.

The SIM card must work on the GSM network (Ask your carrier for more information).

To purchase a SIM card, you do not need to purchase a new phone.

More and more mobile carriers offer “Bring Your Own Device” programs, which enable you to purchase only the SIM card with the plan you need.

For more information, please contact your carrier.

Before purchasing your SIM card, make sure the latter is working on the GSM network. Attention: the control panel of the T6-L only supports regular SIM cards. It does not support Micro SIM and Nano SIM cards.

What are the zones ? 


Each detector can be assigned to one of the 4 categories of zones: Normal zone, Home Mode zone, Delay zone or 24h zone. The zones enable the detectors to behave differently when the system is armed, disarmed or triggered:


Normal zone
When the control panel is armed (or in Home Mode), if a detector assigned to the Normal zone is triggered, the siren rings out. When the system is disarmed, the detector does trigger the alarm.

Home Mode zone
The detectors assigned to the Home Mode zone do not trigger the alarm when the system is armed in Home Mode.
We recommend you to assign the motion detectors to the Home Mode zone, so that they will not trigger the alarm even when the system is armed in Home Mode. The door/window contacts will however trigger the alarm (provided they have not been assigned to the Home Mode zone too).

Delay zone
The detectors assigned to the Delay zone will only trigger the alarm after a delay set (counting from the arming or disarming of the alarm system). This enables you to arm or disarm you alarm system from the control panel without triggering the alarm.
We recommend you to assign the detectors located in the entrance of your home to the Delay zone. The delay before the arming or disarming of the detectors assigned to the Delay zone can be changed, please refer to the user manual of your alarm system.

24h zone
The detectors assigned to the 24h zone trigger the alarm in any circumstance, whether the system is armed or not. We recommend you to assign smoke detectors to the 24h zone.

Assigning a detector to a zone is made at the time you register the detector in the control panel. The choice of the zone for the detector is the step following the type of detector to register.


When I create an account in the app for my alarm system, what is the SIM card number? 


The SIM card number of your alarm system is the telephone number of the SIM card you have inserted in the control panel of your alarm system. A SIM card is necessary for the T6-L control panel to work in GSM mode (for the setup and control of the alarm system by SMS). SIM card sold separately.


Can I receive an SMS notification every time the system is armed or disarmed? 


It is possible, provided that there is a SIM card in the control panel.

To receive an SMS notification when the system is armed, enter the menu from the control panel (type your admin code + “Enter”).
In the menu, go to SYSTEM SETTINGS > ARM UPLOAD, and press “Enter”.
Change from “OFF” to “ON” and press “Enter”.
To receive an SMS notification when the system is disarmed, enter the menu from the control panel (type your admin code + “Enter”).
In the menu, go to SYSTEM SETTINGS > DISARM UPLOAD, and press “Enter”.
