The RKI Email / Text generator is an accessory device that can be used in conjunction with any alarm system that provides a relay contact closure for an alarm condition. It will accept 1 or 2 different contact closures, and send a customized message for each closure that could be used to indicate the type or severity of the alarm.

The user programs what message is sent to the recipients of the texts or emails. The Email / Text generator can be programmed to send emails and texts to anyone desired so that other persons can be notified of an alarm condition on the gas monitor or other controller. The emails and texts can be sent to 12 contacts.

The Email / Text generator utilizes a local WiFi connection and requires a working WiFi network to operate. No software required to program the unit, simply connect to the WiFi network that is generated by the Email / Text generator and you will be directed to a website to program the device. There are no monthly subscription fees required to operate this unit.
