The Input Guard - VM606
The Input Guard is a simple to use, 8 dry contact input monitor with built-in telephone dialer in a single package.
The VM606 monitors eight dry contacts inputs such as switch closures, magnetic door or window switches, thermostats, fluid level switches and motion sensors.
Each of the eight inputs can be configured to accept normally open or normally closed contacts.
Inputs are monitored even when power is off using the VM606's internal 24 hour battery backup.
Program a time delay for each input to prevent nuisance calls.
Each input can be configured as N/O or N/C.
How does the VM606 work?
There are three parameters that need to be programmed for each input. They are whether the input is normally open or normally closed, the amount of time to wait after the input changes state to go into alarm condition and a recordable message describing the input.
Input alarm condition example
Input 1 has been programmed to be normally open with a 10 second time delay. The contacts wired to input 2 closes. After the input is closed for 10 seconds, the VM606 goes into alarm condition and begins to make emergency phone calls. The VM606 will call all of the programmed phone numbers until the PIN number is entered. If an answering machine answers the phone, the VM606 will leave the alarm message, but it will not stop calling. Once all of the phone numbers have been dialed, the VM606 will wait twenty minutes and then retry all phone numbers.
Input alarm message
"Warning alarm has been caused by input 1" & your recorded message & "enter your PIN number"
Can an Input Guard and an answering machine or fax machine share the same line?
Yes. To have the answering/fax machine answer the phone, program the Input Guard to answer the phone on the 5th ring. To access the Input Guard, call the number and let the phone ring 3 times. Hang up and wait 20 seconds. Call the number again and on the 2nd ring the Input Guard will answer.
