  4. PUSH versus SMS/Text Notification
  • PUSH vs SMS/Text Notifications are very similar. They both identify the alarm system address, alarm signal and zone, and zone description in a message to the user’s phone.   Notifications are normally delivered within seconds.
  • In order to receive PUSH notifications, you will need to download the ipDatatel SecureSmart application which can be found in your phone’s market place and is compatible for both Android and iPhone users.
  • When a PUSH Notification is sent, it uses an extremely small amount of the customer’s Data Plan to send them a message.
  • When a SMS/Text Notification is sent, it uses the customer’s “pool” of SMS/Text Messages. It can be problematic for a customer that only has 200 SMS/Text messages for their carrier plan and should be moved to PUSH.
