Is my panel compatible with the M2M-MINI?

The M2M-MINI will send signals from any panel that has a dialer and can report in Contact ID format.
The unit works as a dial capture device. You program your panel like you would a dialer in Contact ID.

Simply connect the AUX+ (12vdc+) and AUX- (12vdc –) wires & your RING and TIP wires and you are ready to go.
WARNING: Make sure you DO NOT have a phone line connected as the 52 VDC will damage the MiNi.
Remember, some manufacturers such as DSC require HEX programming for Contact ID.

WIRING COLORS: RED – AUX POSITIVE, DARK GRAY – AUX NEGATIVE, GREEN – RINGYELLOW – TIP.

Make sure your panel has a 12 VDC power supply. If not, you may need to install one!

REMOTE ARM / DISARM PROGRAMMING 

The M2M-MINI comes with a FREE APP from M2Mservices to offer your clients remote arm / disarm from any smartphone!  

The FREE app will not have your company logo on it unless you order a “PRIVATE M2M PORTAL” from VirtuAlarm.  Once you do have a private portal, all your M2M devices will be placed into your private portal to allow a broader display and control of your devices as well as have your company logo placed on it.

Compatible panels for this feature must have:

  • A programmable momentary keyswitch zone

  • A programmable armed status output

  • Open and closing reports must be turned on

Wiring this feature is simple. The orange wire goes to your momentary keyswitch zone, the white wire goes to your “armed status output”.

NOTE: Some panels might require EOL resistor on the key switch zone for remote arming. Simply put your EOL across the ground and zone, and put your orange wire on the zone input.

Have your client download the app: RControl. Simply open it up and follow the instructions!

NOTE: The Open/Close signals must be enabled every time you want to allow remote Arming/Disarming. Once the device is synced with the RControl App you can disable the Open/Close reporting if needed.
