Cellular Alerting
SMS and Email
SMS Example for the LTE Add-On
The module sends the alerts over the cell phone network either in a primary or backup mode. In a backup mode it will send over the regular TCP/IP network and only use the cell phone network when the IP network fails.

Alternatively the module can run in primary mode. In this mode all alerts are sent over the cellular network.

Using the module enables you to get alerts even when your main network is down.

Dual SIM Card
The addon features support for 2 micro SIM cards. When the network on SIM1 fails, then automatically it will use the network of the backup SIM to send out the alerts and data.

You choose your primary and backup mobile operator, or just a primary mobile operator.

* Dual SIM functionality for ADDON-LTE purchased after December 2019.

Message Buffering
In the event of a total mobile network outage, the built-in message buffering ensures that only alert or data package is sent as soon as connectivity is restored.

The built-in buffer capacity amounts to number of messages that would be sent at a 5 minute interval for 10 days, or at a 1 minute interval for 2 days.

With the GPS functionality, latitude and longitude coordinates are shared via SNMP, Modbus TCP or via the Cloud.

This enables you to know where your sensors are. You can even select the transmission intervals.
