Compatibility and inclusions with the product
The SmartCom is compatible with Premier Elite panels up to the Premier Elite 168, with V4.00 firmware. It is supplied as a separate module that is connected to two COM ports within the panel. A cable is supplied for this purpose. We know that COM ports are used for other reasons and therefore we have also included the COM port expander, this enables the installer to create another COM port from the Expander header on the PCB. We recommend the use of COM1 and COM2 for the SmartCom, but other ports can be used if either of these are already in use.
Future compatibility with 3rd party secure communicators
We are working with a number of secure communication partners including CSL and Webwayone to provide integrated support with their services. We expect to be able to provide a fully integrated solution with CSL and Webwayone later in this calendar year. This should enable communication to their services using the SmartCom communicator.
Simple configuration using Wintex with the cloud server (Wintex version 6.3.0 and above)
Wintex now has the added option to connect via the Cloud to SmartCom. This ensures that you can easily make a UDL connection for configuration of the panel without opening incoming ports.
When to use the SmartCom
If you want to use the Texecom Connect APP, then you must use the SmartCom. If you wish to have a simple method for connecting to support the product using UDL, then the SmartCom is simpler, because it avoids the need for port forwarding.
When to use the COM-IP
The COM-IP is an accredited IP communicator for use in approved systems, for this reason this device remains the appropriate product for use where alarm reporting to ARC’s is required. If remote UDL capability is required with this device, then this requires port forwarding through the Router
