Commands apply for these devices:

FTC921 FTC961 FTC881

All commands are case sensitive. When user tries to send SMS/GPRS message to device that operates in Deep Sleep mode, it cannot arrive to it because the GSM/GPRS module is disabled most of the time. Device will receive the SMS message when it exits Deep Sleep mode, but GPRS commands will not be received after exiting Deep Sleep Mode.
If the device is in GPS Sleep or Online Deep Sleep mode, sent SMS/GPRS message will arrive to the device.

SMS command structure:

<SMS login><space><SMS password><space><command><space><value>

SMS command getinfo example:

  • If you have set SMS login and password: login pass getinfo
  • If SMS login and password are not set leave two spaces before command:   getinfo
