The SMS Reports app which is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, allows compatible alarm systems programming to send SMS alarm reports to deliver the messages over the data network via a push notification.
Receiving messages via the app in this way offers a number of benefits over the traditional SMS method including.
The ability to easily separate alarm system messages from other messages delivered to your phone.
The ability to filter messages by individual alarm system or site which is especially useful if you have more than one alarm system reporting via SMS.
A unique message alert tone is played each time a push message is received helping to distinguish between alarm messages and other messages recieved on the phone.
The app will sound an alarm siren alert tone whenever an actual alarm message is received. The siren sound plays for up to 30 seconds which may alert you to the message while you are sleeping, something a normal SMS message will not usually do. Launching the app during the 30 second time perioud will stop the alert signal.
Individual messages can be displayed in detailed view using a larger font making them easier to read.
