The Resideo Honeywell Home PRODCM is a dialer capture plug-In module is intended for use with the LTEM-P series communicators. The PRODCM module is used for control panels that do not support Resideo ECP data communication, but that send Contact ID alarm signals via the control panel's TELCO dialer.
The optional dialer capture module simulates the phone service to the control panel and captures the Contact ID messages from the panel's phone line, then passes the signals to the communicator. The messages are then sent to AlarmNet for routing to the central monitoring station via the Internet or cellular radio network. The PRODCM is compatible only with LTEM-PA or LTEM-PV AlarmNet communicators.
The Dialer Capture module supports only one-way communications (from the control panel to the central station). For those control panels that support two-way voice communications, speakerphone, paging, follow-me, etc., these features will no longer be available. The control panel must be programmed for one-way communications only.
Since Dialer Capture module supports only one-way communications (from the control panel to the central station), the Resideo Compass Downloader cannot be used. In the event the communicator loses power, the module would not be able to generate a fault trigger to the control panel and set an alarm. In this case, after the panel has exhausted its redial attempts, a communication failure is displayed by the panel (you may have to scroll through the messages).
The Dialer Capture module cannot sense a fault on the Tip/Ring side. However, during an alarm, if the module cannot forward the alarm, it will trigger a fault and disable the phone line. The phone line will be re-enabled after communication has been reestablished.
If the Dialer Capture module senses a fault, it will send a Trigger signal to the control panel zone (if wired to a zone). At this point the module will also drop the phone line voltage and will not provide a dial tone to the control panel. During this time, the control panel will make retry attempts (8 for residential, and more for commercial) to dial out and send a report. Until the control panel has completed the series of retry attempts it will not be able to detect a Telco fault. To minimize the wait time, for control panels that allow setting the Telco Fault detection time, please set it to the minimum detection time.
For control panels that may generate erroneous Telco fault conditions based on grounding, turn off "Telco Fault" monitoring at the control panel. If the dialer capture module receives a communication path failure from the communicator, the module will drop the voltage and thereby disable the phone line. If Telco Fault is enabled in the panel, the keypad on the system will display the fault. When the dialer capture module receives a fault clear condition, the module will re-enable the phone line. The panel is notified of all other faults if the fault output of the communicator is wired to a zone on the panel.
Dialer operation is set for DTMF Tone Dialing for each phone number (pulse dialing is not supported and must be disabled in the control panel)
PABX field is disabled (the Dialer Capture module does not communicate through a PABX)
Phone numbers and account numbers are programmed (to ensure the maximum number of messages can be transmitted to the central station before a communication failure occurs, ensure the control panel is programmed with a primary and secondary central station number)
Report format is set to Contact ID for each phone number
The maximum number of retry attempts is programmed
