FAQ: How to connect the power supply to my Mobeye CM2 Series device?
Although the Mobeye CM-Guard CM2000 is designed to run on batteries, it is possible to use an external PSU. In this mode the module is always connected with the GSM network and therefore always in program mode. When the power fails, the batteries take over and a power failure alarm message is sent. The module continues operating albeit in the low power mode. This means the GSM module switches off and only establishes network connection when it needs to send an alarm notification, test message or low battery alert.
