AC wall outlet with integrated mobile phone

GSM remote wall outlet

, remotely controlled with any land-line or mobile phone.

With a simple voice-call using any land-line or mobile phone a 230V consumer can be switched ON and OFF. Control commands (ON, OFF, …) are typed in over the phone keypad or send to the box via SMS.

The special feature is the return information via real voice message (e.g.”the Outlet is currently OFF”). Examples of use:

The Outlet is used where 230V devices need to be switched by mobile communication:
  • Heater in the summer residence
  • Computers at work
  • Alarm system in office, shop, factory

In general any switchable 230V consumer in household and office/shop from “A” like  Aquarium Automatic Feeder to “S” like  Shop Window Lighting and “T” like  Time Switch are eligible – there is no limits to imagination here. However, it is most important that whenever an electronic device is switched ON unattended, (time switches for example) it shows no harm during usual continuous operation.

Main features of the AC wall outlet with integrated mobile phone

The outlet can be switched ON and OFF by using any telephone or mobile phone key tones (DTMF), via SMS or Data-Call (= CSD). In addition, for example a reset (OFF / wait 10 seconds / ON) can be triggered.

Extract of the command overview with examples:

  • Remote control by land-line or mobile phone (via DTMF touchtone)
    • 0# immediate turn OFF of the outlet
    • 1# immediate turn ON of the outlet
    • 2# trigger reset (turn OFF outlet – wait 10 seconds – turn ON)
    • 20# status-SMS to the momentary caller

The current switching state of the outlet is then signalled by voice message. Example: 1357*1# –> Password = 1357, command = switch ON outlet

  • Control command via SMS These commands are written in plain text in the SMS text and sent to the outlet. In addition, the password (at any position) must be sent with the message
    • OFF! immediately turn OFF the power outlet
    • ON! immediately turn ON the outlet
    • RESET! Reset now (switch OFF outlet – wait 10 seconds – turn ON)
    • status? Status SMS to the sender
If the command SMS contains a ”*” (at any position) an acknowledgement SMS to the sender is sent after the execution of the command.

Example: 1357 ON! * → Password = 1357, command = switch ON, with acknowledgement SMS Security:

For protection against sabotage and ”jokesters” commands are only accepted by authorised callers! The caller/sender of an SMS can only be authorised if correct password (stored in the phone book) of the SIM card is provided. The password must be given either way by voice call (typing the password) and when sending a SMS (password must be in the SMS text).

Hardware:

The outlet consists of a connector housing with safety plug (CEE 714) contacts. Load up to 2000W can be switched and the box can also manually be switched ON and OFF by push-button at the bottom of the box.

GSM antenna:

The required GSM antenna is screwed (stubby type antenna) directly to the SMA antenna jack. For problematic receiving areas (e.g. basement, interior), it is also possible and recommended to connect an external GSM antenna with SMA connector. A selection of optimised GSM antennas (magnetic mount, disk, etc.) are offered in our shop.

Operation mode: The current switching state of the outlet and the GSM unit are signalled by two LEDs. Moreover simply run query options via voice call and SMS. Specification: General:

  • Connector system: safety plug (CEE 714)
  • The current switching state is signalled by two LEDs
  • Load and control circuits have a safe electrical isolation
  • Protection: IP20, only for dry rooms
  • Ambient -10 … +50 °C

Load circuit:

  • Operating voltage: 230V ~, 50Hz
  • Maximum switching power:
    • resistive loads like light bulbs or heaters: 2000W (8.7A)
    • inductive loads such as motors, transformers, etc.: 2000VA (8.7A)

Control:

  • via voice-call
  • via SMS

Special features:

  • The Outlet can be operated with any prepaid or contract SIM card
  • Of course, it comes without SIM lock
  • Delivery is WITHOUT additional SIM card contract
  • NO HIDDEN COSTS
  • Manufacturing and Product Development “Made in Germany
