Security systems over a year old which use the O2’s TAP Service to deliver an SMS (text) message to keyholders when their alarm is activated, now need to switch to another provider, such as Vodafone.
O2 withdrew their “TAP” Gateway product in March this year. The change may well cause problems for a number of alarm systems.
The SMS TAP Service used a landline connection from the alarm panel to send text messages to phone numbers programmed by an installer or end-user. The messages were directed by a service provider using a TAP gateway.
If your system offers the ability to send an SMS text to you when it is activated and you think it is using the O2 TAP gateway for this, then you need OpenTAP from OpenTelecom the UK’s No.1 free of charge TAP messaging gateway and the only valued added product with reliability and 99,9999% up-time guaranteed!
YES…. OpenTAP from OpenTelecom its the only free of charge and reliable TAP gateway in the UK at present. The only catch is you must register to use the service which prevents fraud and text spammers.
