The Smart Read Alarm

A battery-driven motion sensor notifies you by SMS whenever there is any unwanted movement in the area.

The alarm is silent. It transmits to the customer by SMS via the Smart Read module. The mobile phone acknowledges the transmission, and becomes inactive for 15 minutes. When the 15 minutes is up, the alarm transmits a new message if it still registers any movement. You can always switch the alarm function on or off by sending an SMS message.

Sensitivity The detector is immune to pets weighing up to 36 kg (80 lb) moving on the floor or climbing on the furniture as long as the activity takes place below 1 m. Above the 1 m height limit, the detector is immune to 18 kg pets, but this immunity will decrease as the pet gets closer to the detector. It is therefore recommended to select a mounting location that minimizes potential close proximity of any pets.
