Octalarm-IP

The Octalarm-IP is an extremely reliable alarm dialler that has been used for more than 10 years in horticulture, intensive livestock farming and water management. The alarm dialler is available in 3 variants, one with a second call connection (redundant). This means that alarms arrive with high certainty. 

The benefits

  1. Alerts sent as voice messages, SMS, paging and Email
  2. Alerts via analogue telephone connection (PSTN) and GSM (2-3G)
  3. VoIP possible with analogue telephone adapter (ATA)
  4. Remote setup and management with IP-prog and / or internet via standard web browser

A consideration

We would like to point out that the lifespan of this dialler is limited due to changes in the telecom networks (see the knowledge article Disabling 2G and 3G network, what does this mean for my alerts?). We advise you to consider the purchase of the successor, the Octalarm-Touch.

Reliability

Companies are steadily increasing in scale, causing technical installations to become larger and more complex. The demands put on monitoring and alarm systems in the event of technical malfunctions are increasing accordingly. To guarantee the reliability of telephone alarms, 1 telephone connection is often not enough. In the variants with two call connections, the Octalarm-IP switches to the second network if the network of the first choice should fail.

The Octalarm-IP alerts using spoken messages, SMS, paging or email and are supplied including a UTP cable. The different variants of the versatile alarm dialler are devided into 3 main groups:

  1. PE-version: Alarm dialler for the fixed PSTN network (VoIP possible with an analog port on a VoIP modem or ATA; analogue telephone adapter)
  2. PG-version: Redundant alarm dialler through combined PSTN (VoIP possible with an analog port on a VoIP modem or ATA; analogue telephone adapter) and GSM network (supplied with 2-3G GSM/UMTS module)
  3. GE-version: Alarm dialler for the GSM network (supplied with 2-3G GSM/UMTS module)

All main groups can be supplied with 4, 8 or 12 inputs. Please note that the Octalarm-IP cannot be expanded with more inputs afterwards. The dialler does not come with an antenna. If you require an antenna, select it from the related products.

Note: limited lifespan

As of the beginning of 2020, Dutch telecom providers started phasing out the 3G network  and 3G will no longer be provided by them from January 1, 2022. If the provider support 2G, the Octalarm-IP has an automatic fallback to 2G. However, the 2G network will expire in the Netherlands as of April 2025. We recommend you to contact your provider for clarity in your 2G and 3G delivery guarantee. Due to the loss of these networks, the lifespan of this dialler is limited.

We advise you to consider the purchase of the successor, the Octalarm-Touch. This 5th-generation Octalarm uses the latest technology to enable secure and reliable alerts using today’s (significantly changed) digital telephone networks. With Octalarm-Touch, you’re ready for the future!
