The device is capable of generating a reserve telephone line when the PSTN is unavailable, as well as operating as a GSM voice dialler with 100 pre-recorded messages customizable by means of text-to-speech software or .wav file. In fact, the new hardware (for P and GP versions) integrates a powerful voice card capable of storing 15 minutes of speech and 100 messages.
Moreover, the SmartLink Advanced is capable of sending SMS messages over the GSM network, in both manual and automatic mode. Automatically generated texts can be modified through the software editor. The SmartLink Advanced also operates as a dual-net digital GSM and PSTN dialler and can transmit information to alarm receiving centres via the most widely used protocols, such as Contact-ID (PSTN) or standard SIA-IP (GPRS).
The SmartLink Advanced provides a call-answering feature with voice guide (similar to that on SmartLiving intrusion control panels) that allows users to control the system over-the-phone (up to 200 telephone numbers can be enabled on the white-list). It also provides all the functions related to activation of scenarios, home-automation and intrusion control via SMS, with the added assurance of command feedback (ring or SMS message).
The new generation technologies integrated in the SmartLink Advanced allow you to select the best provider even before purchasing the SIM card (EasyScan function). These technologies also allow you to be sure that your system is protected against intentional or unintentional jamming that can disrupt wireless transmission and inhibit the GSM signal.
Thanks to the up-to-the-minute technology of the new GSM module, the SmartLink Advanced takes full advantage of Roaming services through a single SIM card, thus allowing the end-user to avoid buying other SIM cards for the device. In this way, it is possible to achieve the best possible connection at all times.
It is also possible to establish a connection between two SmartLink Advanced devices for the periodic control and management of the "GSM Network Connection" check.
Another useful aspect of the SmartLink Advanced is that it is capable of managing the GPRS channel for its own remote management and programming. This feature allows users to access the device through the Internet. Just insert a SIM card (enabled for the Internet) to activate the GPRS channel of the GSM network. The installer can activate the GPRS connection by sending an SMS message containing valid credentials. The SmartLink Advanced will connect to the IP address previously programmed for the device. If the installer is on the move and thus the Connection IP address is different from the programmed one, it is possible to send the device an SMS message containing valid credentials and the IP address the SmartLink Advanced must connect to.
By means of new programming and control software, it is now possible to obtain remote access to all the device functions in a simple, fast and secure way.
