Indoor / Outdoor Strobe Siren
This article contains the procedure for programming the Fortress Indoor/Outdoor Strobe Siren with the GSM system.
NOTE: If you purchased the siren as part of a kit, then it has been pre-programmed to the main panel already, and no other programming is needed. Follow these steps below if you have purchased a siren separately, and are now adding it to an existing system.
