Useful Important Information

Your Main Control Phone Number will be written into CS0 memory cell by us, do not overwrite or delete that cell unless you are 100% sure! You need to give us at least one of your mobile phone number(s) so we could upload it into your control module. The phone number should be uploaded in a local format. For instance: 07749782278 (our UK phone number, you can call us :-) . The key fob cannot be used to stop the running generator which was initially started from SMS/Call and vice versa. This means if you start the generator from the SMS/Phone Call then you need to stop it from SMS too. If you start the generator from the Key Fob, then you need to stop it from the Key Fob too.
Please follow this simple rule to prevent a situation when the Key Fob takes over the current starting SMS command which wouldn't let to stop the running generator from SMS or vice versa.
SIM card not included. Please use your own SIM card. Bear in mind the module's mobile network working bands when ordering the SIM card for this module, try to avoid using 3rd party SIM card companies (such as GiffGaff and similar) as they are quite slow with SMS sometimes and often having other problems.
Stop command over a Phone Call not available. Text "stop" to stop please.
Protect the module from bad weather, dirt, insects and rain (moisture). Don't fit the module inside the metal container as this will block radio signals and the module might not work. We can supply an external aerial for this controller at £15.00, please ask. The module comes with a portable aerial which is enough for normal function where mobile network signal available and not too weak.
The module has 6 automatic starting attempts. Ones start command received it will crank the engine for 3 sec and wait for 10 sec to make sure the engine started. If not, it will try 5 more times increasing each next attempt for 1sec. If generator hasn't started after 6 attempts, the module will stop cranking. To reset the module back to working mode text: stop
It is recommended to find out the reason of non start first before attempting to start the engine another time.
