The IT MINI interface simulates a traditional telephone line (PSTN) using a GSM system module.
It can be used as telephone backup system when a PSTN line is out of order or is not available: in these
conditions, or if the interface is properly configured, a call from an external unit is forwarded through the
GSM network.
The system is completely transparent to SIA FSK and CONTACT ID protocols signals; it also provides a
signalling PSTN Fail relay output (NC/NO).
Using SMS commands IT MINI can be remotely configured and can generate system informations.

                                                                                                IT MINI
IT MINI handles incoming and outgoing SMS messages. Incoming messages are used to configure the
system. Outgoing messages can be answers to commands or the following event-generated (if enabled)

       pStn:faIL                 calling telephone number belongs to the address book and, if yes, it
                                 answers with a message containing the system status.
                                 This message doesn’t need to be associated to a specific telephone
                                 number of the address book.
1) The text of the first 3 messages can be changed
2) The echo function returns the message received by the system preceeded by the sender id.
   This function also allows to monitor improper access attempts

A SMS message is sent if the relevant event occurs and if it has been previously associated at least to a
telephone number (8 telephone numbers may be stored in the system): by default, all messages are asso-
ciated to the first telephone number of the address book.

LED fUnCtIon

The following 3 LEDs provide systems status informations:

 YeLLoW      This LED gives the GSM link status: after startup this LED blinks to indicate that the system
             is trying to login the GSM network.
   GSM       Once logged the LED is turned OFF if the PSTN line is available and is turned to a steady
 STATUS      ON status is the PSTN line is not available.
             When the system is working on the GSM network (outgoing call or SMS or incoming SMS)
             the LED blinks.
  GREEn      This LED indicates the GSM signal strength. At system startup it blinks together with the yel-
             low LED then it blinks according to the GSM signal strength:
    GSM            1 blink and 1 pause: signal absent or too weak (if this condition is stable it is
  SIGNAL             reccomended not to use this system)
  LEVEL            2 blinks and 1 pause: sufficient signal
                   3 blinks and 1 pause: good signal
   RED       This LED blinks when a system failure occurs (GSM out of order or network not available,
             SIM card locked). If the problem is related to GSM network the RED and the YELLOW LEDs
 SYSTEM      will blink simultaneously.

RESEt (DEfaULt) bUtton
To return to the initial default programming condition the system must be turned off (disconnecting supply)
and then turned on with the RESET KEY (SW1) pressed.
The are two type of system reset:

1° paSSWoRD RESEt: if the key is pressed for about 5 seconds only the system password is reset
2° totaL RESEt: if the reset key is pressed for more than 10 seconds the system will resume the default
REMaRk: during reset the RED LED is turned on, the GREEn LED blinks and, only for totaL RESEt, the YELLoW LED
gives a short flash.

                                                       3                                                IT MINI
The system normally works with SIM cards without the PIN code. If the SIM card cannot work without the
PIN code it must programmed to the 1234 value: the board will use that code to use the SIM card.
In case of SIM card provided with PIN code, it’s possible to set in the SIM card the code 1234. This code is
used by the system for the release of the SIM card.
When the IT MINI is connected to a telephone exchange, the number generated by the alarm system may
contain a prefix that must be skipped when forwarded to the GSM network (eg: the 0 065487954 number
must exit as 065487954).
This can be done through a suitable system setup (see the relevant paragraph).

ex: the 0 065487954 becomes 065487954
DIaL tonE
 IT MINI is able to generate either a continuous dial tone (default setting) or a pulsed dial tone.
To change the setting a suitable SMS command must be sent (PULSE=on/off).
At system reset, all SMS messages are associated to the first telephone number (if any): to modify
this setting it is necessary to send a suitable command to the unit (smstel.x=0)
 at system reset, all SMS messages are associated to the first telephone
 number (if any): to modify this setting an suitable command must be sent
 to the unit
use of the sms text messages for remote programming
As already explained, IT MINI is completely configurable by means of SMS text messages.
To program the system, the user must send a text message suitably formatted.
A command can be composed by more fields separated by a space character: each field is composed by a
command id, an optional command index, an operator and a value (ID[.index]operator[value])
The first field of a command text must be the password declaration in order to authenticate the user access
(e.g.; pWD:000000) .
The following operators are recognized by the system:

operator       name           Example
:              Declarator     PWD:111111 This statement declares the password value
=              assignment     TEL.3=1234 This statement assignes the 123456 value to the third phone
 ?              Request       PFX?           This statement asks the system to return the PFX parameter
After receiving a SMS, the system will execute the command(s) and will answer with a SMS containing the
result of each single command.
For example, after receiving the “PWD:000000 TEL1.1=24 “ SMS, the “PWD:OK TEL.1:OK” SMS will be
A wrong field will be answered with the *FAIL* indication while a not recognized field will be answered with
the *?* indication.

Commands are CASE UNSENSITIVE and may be written either in capital letters or in small letters.

WaRninG: incoming messages exceeding 64 characters will be ignored and will be not acknowledged.

The factory refuses any responsibility when changes or unauthorized repairs are made to the product/sys-
tem. It is recommended to test the operation of the alarm product/system at least once a month. Despite
frequent testing and due to, but not limited to, any or all of the following: tampering, electrical or com-
munication disruption or improper use, it is possible for the product/system to fail to prevent burglary,
robbery, fire or otherwise. A properly installed and maintained alarm system can only reduce the risk that
this happens.
Any GSM speech dialler or communicator, not connected to the PSTN standard telephone line, does not
ensure proper communication in case of problems or limitations due to the GSM network.
