Well it looks like the Vodafone TAP is getting less reliable every day.
Today it was only sending around 10% of messages from a Castle Euro 46. Tried it on 2 other panels at different sites, story was the same.
Pyronix/Castle keep selling it though. Why do they release bulletins like this http://shl.createsen…C70DBB5D28FA0F4
claiming it is reliable when the TAP is out of their control.
Is there a better TAP service out there?
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.
