Up to three phone numbers can be used. When a phone call is answered, there is an option to press a button on the phone and acknowledge the call. In doing so, no additional calls will be made for that alert. If a phone call is not acknowledged, the next phone number will be dialed. If the call is not acknowledged, the next phone number in the list will be called until all numbers have been dialed.
  • Land Line Modem. This option requires additional hardware connected to your computer and can only dial a phone number. These modems are inexpensive and can be connected very easily to your computer and phone line.
  • GSM/Cellular Modem. This option requires additional hardware connected to your computer and can only dial a phone number. It also requires a SIM card and service from a U.S. based cellular service provider.
  • Events And Actions

    Event are created to cause an action to be made when the status of a device changes. When a status changes, one or more actions can be made. For example, A light bulb changes from “off” to “on” and an email is sent to an email address. The event is the light bulb change and the action is the email being sent. Actions can also be scheduled to occur at a specific time or regular interval.

    The following actions are examples of actions that can be selected:
