    Hi guys
    I have a Visonic Powermax Complete alarm that is not connected to a phone line. I have just bought a used GSM Module from ebay and am fairly confident I can fit and programme it myself as I programmed the alarm myself from scratch. The only thing I'm unsure about f is the SIM card. It doesn't say anywhere in the manual whether or not it has to be a certain type of SIM card. I assumed it would be some sort of special one that I'd have to get from Visonic but I can't find anything like that so maybe not. Is it just a case of getting a standard SIM card from somewhere and using that? Also, maybe a stupid question, but would it have to be topped up with credit so that it can send a text?
    Thanks as always

    if its for the App, then a data sim, if its for gsm functionality only then a pay as you go should be fine.

    size will depend on what the module takes, but nowadays sims come with pop outs, so you just pop out the right size.

    add sim and gsm module whilst powered down.

    Thanks for your reply. Just waiting on the module to turn up and then I'll have a go at it.
