App to SMS

A few months ago, we received news from Google that their IOT service will be discontinued by August 16 2023.

We went through great lengths and managed to run our own service to continue bringing proactivity to the palm of your hands.

Many people have missed the update deadline, and Google finally shut down the service, disabling many GSM Units from controlling their motion sensors.

The KwêBeams Keypad, if connected to the same system as the GSM unit, will still be able to control your system, regardless of the current problem.

We simply need you to bring your GSM in for an update. This will immediately put you back on the App, and you won’t have similar problems in the future.

 

If you need a solution right now, please disable the app and enable SMS settings on the GSM.

This will allow you to control the system with normal SMS.

Here are the steps to follow in case you need to do this:

  1. Open the front lid of the GSM
  2. SMS the word APPOFF to the SIM number of the GSM
  3. SMS your number to the GSM in this format: AddControlNumber 2782*******
  4. To arm, SMS: AlarmOn
  5. To disarm SMS: AlarmOff

This will at least put you back in control until we can get the update sorted out for you.
