Integration with CMS Remote Monitoring

Steps to Use CMS Remote Monitoring with PageGate


PageGate can be easily integrated with CMS Remote Monitoring by using either GetMail or GetSerial modules to receive notifications from CMS and process them in to SMS messages to recipients' cell phones, pages to their pagers or many other output methods.

When configuring an alarm in CMS, you can choose whether you want the alarm to output to a serial port or send an email in the "Linkage Actions" section.

To have CMS send information to PageGate by email, you'll first need to configure a sub-domain off of your main email domain and redirect the MX record of the sub-domain to the IP address of the PageGate computer.

For example, let's say that our main domain is example.com. We could then have the mail server administrators for example.com create the sub-domain paging.example.com and redirect the MX record for this sub-domain to the IP of the PageGate computer. Once this is accomplished, here's how to configure PageGate's GetMail module:

1) Open the PG Admin.

2) Go to Interfaces - GetMail - Settings.

3) Check Enabled.

4) Enter your sub-domain name in the "Local Domain" field.

5) Click Apply.
5a) If prompted, select Yes, you do want this to be enabled for all groups and recipients.

Once you do that, every recipient and group within PageGate becomes a valid email address on the new sub-domain.

For example, if we had a group named Alerts, we could have CMS send an email to alerts@paging.example.com and GetMail would read the message in, then submit the message for delivery to all of the members of the Alerts group.

To have CMS send information via serial, here's how to configure PageGate's GetSerial module:

1) Open the PG Admin.

2) Go to Interfaces - GetSerial - Settings.

3) Specify the following:
Port: Specify the port the cable will connect to.
Baud Rate: 9600
Parity: None
Data Bits: 8
Stop Bits: 1
Handshaking: None
Init String: Leave Blank

4) Click on Apply.

You'll then need to have a sample alarm sent in and review the data stream for appropriate parsing parameters for the record, recipient, sender and message. For more information on how to do that, have a look at our documentation here: http://www.notepage.net/manuals/pg/v7/server/html/index.html
