I am ordering a Concord 4 system with the alphanumeric keypad.  I am also ordering the voice/telephone module with the system.  I would like to know what actual text messages and what verbal voice messages I will be able to obtain by using the keypad.  For example would an actual text message on the keypad and an actual voice message from the speaker state and announce something like:  "The window on the upstairs east bedroom is open".  I have not been able to find out whether there is a character limitation or time limitation and whether only built in codes can be used.  I haven't found whether the 16 character message on the keypad is scrollable such that a message longer than 16 characters can be displayed.  I am surprised that no actual examples of messages have been published.  It seems the user is required to purchase and install the system in order to discover specifically what it will do.

Also, it is stated that voice module has a 220 word vocabulary, but I have never found a list of those 220 words.

Thanks

  • Hi Frank, 

    The Phone Interface and Voice Module (PIVM) is not so descriptive to say  "The window on the upstairs east bedroom is open" but it can say " Upstairs East Bedroom Window open" 

    There are 184 actual words available.  These are programmed in the Sensor Text section of Sensor Programming.

    The sensor text will not scroll. If you have multiple zones (sensors) open, they will alternate flashing on the screen. Below is the sensor text available for the Concord 4

  • Perfect example!  Thanks Joe.  That is the information I wanted and the chart I have been looking for.

    Thanks again!

  • Hi

    Does a Voice module require additional speaker or it use touchpanel speaker?

    Thank you

  • Yes, the Concord voice module requires an additional speaker connected, something like the the Elk Interior Speaker would work for that.

  • I connected my voice module output to my whole house intercom system.  The wife allowed me to keep it that way for about 3 hours.  Then had to limit the announcements to the basement, garage, and dog house, where I now reside.
