Virtual Operator

This Help File Page was last Modified on 09/23/2017

The Virtual Operator module allows you to automate certain tasks that normally are provided by your Operators.

Putting Accounts On Test, taking them off test, and reporting the results of these tests to Technicians takes a lot of time and causes a lot of distractions in the Central Station.

These On-Test, Off-Test, and Reporting the Results tasks become a completely automated process using the Virtual Operator module

This special stand-alone application - purchased separately - is accessed via 1 to 4 telephone lines connected to a Dialogic card.

You must have a stand alone PC with an available PCI slot.

A Dialogic card will be installed in that PCI slot.

You will also need 1 - 4 dedicated telephone lines with RJ-11 connectors plugged into that card..

The number of telephone lines required is based on the number and frequency of these types of requests from Technicians - either yours or your Alarm Dealers.

There are no page illustrations shown for this application because there is no need for the Technician to have a portable computer to use it.

Unplug the computer.

Remove the PC's cover.
