How to compose an SMS text according to your needs

This is applicable to TMT250 | GH5200 | TAT100 | TST100 | TFT100.

In Configurator, SMS text field could be composed to send SMS text not just with an event notification, but additionally it can be composed to send custom messages along with an event. Maximum message length is 160 symbols (numbers, letters and symbols in ASCII, except for comma “,”).

For example, Alarm event default format for a text message is:
Date, time, longitude, latitude, 'SMS text', value

Alarm event default SMS text format example:
Alarm Event SMS

Lets say we do not want SMS text to send us Date/Time, Longitude/Latitude and instead, we want to see a Battery Level and Instant movement values.

More about GPRS parameters list for each device can be found here:

TAT100 |TST100 | TFT100 | GH5200 | TMT250

In order to do this, in the text SMS field we need to show device, which parameters need to be shown.
Alarm %io11711, Battery Level %io50690, Instant Movement %io51050
