    Re TL-150 ? 

    OPTION A :
    I have a Power Series 832 with PC5010 with no PC Link.  Will the TL-150 do the job for IP, Internet and Email connection.  I see in the TL-250 installation manual that the 250 can send email but I cannot find any documents of that detail for the TL-150.

    OPTION B :
    Unless I change my board to PC5020 and buy a TL-250, which option would you suggest ?

    Thanks

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    The TL-150 will do the job of IP reporting but will not send email notifications.

    Unless you are planning an update/upgrade, I would suggest keeping the 5010, adding the TL-150 and having the CS send the email.

    My system operate on a stand-alone basis therefore there is no CS involved.

    Can I check the DSC system status trough an internet access based on a TL-150 hooked-up to my DSL modem (with a router) ?

    No, the TL-150 will not do what you want.  It is designed to provide IP Reporting to a CS.

    As you noted, the 250 will send email notification; however, it will require upgrading to a 5020.  Additionally, the 250 requires special software to configure it for email and its installation is best left to a professional.

    You could add a dialer to your 5010 but consider that professional monitoring can be had for as little as $9 a month and could qualify for a discount on your insurance.
