Product Description

The Fortress GSM-A allows you to install a full-scale monitored alarm in your home without incurring costly monthly fees. A totally wireless system, the main console monitors the remote sensors (see below) and triggers the alarm in case of an intrusion. At the same time, it'll send a text message or call you to notify you of a potential break-in. Enter 6 numbers to dial in case the first isn't answered, and 3 SMS numbers. Text feature requires use of a SIM card.

The GSM-A System has both landline and GSM (cellphone) capabilities, allowing one as a backup. In case an intruder manages to cut your landline, the system will still function with the GSM dialer. Furthermore, the alarm will automatically sound if the landline is forcibly cut and the system is armed.

Dial in to arm or disarm the system, check the status or use the built-in intercom. This allows you to talk to anyone near the main console. Intercom feature requires use of a SIM card.

Includes

* 1 X Main Console
* 5 X Window/Door Contacts
* 2 X Passive infrared motion detectors
* 2 X Remote control keyfobs
* 1 X Loud indoor siren

Really cheap garbage, I returned it.
Justin
I use the GSM with AT&T, and it works fine as long as you get someone on the phone that knows what they are talking about.
Sean Sprague
This unit is easy to install and does its job as advertised.

Purchased this about a month ago; installed within a few hours (2-ish?), spend the next few hours playing around with it to learn the system.

Prior reviews on similar systems are correct: the manual is poorly written (I understand I even received the re-written, but yet still poorly written manual) but is still fairly understandable. I found the set up fairly (there's that word again) intuitive and after a bit of playing around got everything set up the way I wanted.

Yes, the plastic body of both alarm main housing and components feels cheap... and, although I've found alarm main housings that felt more solid, every door/window component I've felt by any other manufacture felt just as cheap. Regardless of feel, they work fine.

After witnessing the prior exchange between seller and apparently a knock-off seller attempting to use the seller's name I contacted the seller by phone and was pleased with his responsiveness. Didn't have to take him up on his offer of help if I experienced difficulties, as I experienced no difficulties - but he seemed sincere (despite the fact that a follow up *email* to his Website remains unanswered now 3 weeks after I sent one). My recommendation is contact him by phone as he seems to respond quickly that way.

The knock-off seller claimed that this system wouldn't work with cellular service - which has been shown to be untrue: it works fine with T-Mobile 4G (even though it converts the 4G to 2G); T-Mobile confirmed that I should experience no problems for the foreseeable future.

Purchased a 30 minute card from T-Mobile for ~50 total and cell notifications are working fine (I've got it set to confirm arming/dearming and alarms).

Hardest thing is remembering I have the darn thing turned on as I run out of my house, setting it off -- but at least that's shown me that this system *consistently* works (!@#$ alarm is LOUD).

I am so impressed with this system and the customer service! I received my system and went through the set up instructions. They must've been updated because others said that they were poorly written, but I found them to be easily read and followed. Low and behold, I didn't do much except update the time and a few personalized settings! All of the sensors were already coded into the system.

I purchased a TMobile, pay as you go card. They have different options (from immediately affordable ($25) to $100 worth that can be used over the course of a year). I placed the SIM (full size SIM... They ask at the TMobile store) in my system, chose GSM as the option and it worked perfectly!

When I was hanging the unit, somehow I broke/messed up something (I still am not quite sure what happened) and my sensors no longer worked with the unit. It wouldn't recognize them. I called Michael at Fortress Security Store. He went through some troubleshooting procedures with me and it still wouldn't take a code. He gave me an address and told me to ship my keypad to him and he would fix it or replace it!!

FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! I shipped my keypad, and it was returned to me, fixed and working beautifully, within a couple of weeks! Each time I have called, I have received a response. If I leave a message, he calls back the same day. I'm so glad I purchased this item from Fortress Security Store. I couldn't ask for a better customer experience. And the Security System is great too!

I definitely recommend this system and this seller!

I live Off the Grid - solar power, Propane Fridge, no phone line, etc... This Alarm IS INCREDIBLE and came with TONS of sensors - some of which i don't even need... THE CELL PHONE INTEGRATION SOLVES MY PROBLEM of not having a land line - This alarm calls my Cell phone via it's internal cell phone - ((((( I went to the local ATT corporate store and they got me set up in less than 15 min with a SIM Card for the unit - i got a card with 3 months - 150 min and the setup all for just $27 plus change... UNIT WORKS EVERY TIME i have tripped it !!! - VERY VERY SATISFIED INDEED - Jeff Hall - Columbia, TN

As many of you I was between Fortress and PiSector... after reading a lot of reviews I decide to choose Fortress because of the excellent feedback on customer service... and I couldn't be happier... I'm using this alarm on Nicaragua so it can be used on any country... work with all GSM companies around here with no problem... Siren is loud and work perfectly... I don't know why people complaint about installing the alarm... it took me around 5 to 10 min to setup everything... the alarm came pre configured so you just need to read the piece of paper that they will sent you with the alarm... I don't see how people complaint about the poor written manual when there is no need to use it on the first place... I didn't had to call customer service because everything was explained on a piece of paper that came with the alarm. I just have 3 little complaints about the alarm: power adapter is too short, siren cable is even shorter and the windows decals should have been a little bit bigger.... beside that, great seller, great product.

plug and play. Goes in easy, works great, keeps the bad guys away. I added 2 more motion sensors and my house now is a fortress. T mobile still has the sim cards for $10 plus another $10 for every 3 months of use. Going to get another one for a rental property.
