Product Description

Adds USB for 3G data connection backup and RS232/485 to ZipaBox.

The Zipato Serial Module enables the Zipabox to easily interconnect with an existing security alarm system, such as DSC or PARADOX, or any other system with an RS232 or RS485 communication interface (e.g. air conditioners). It also includes a USB port for connecting a 3G USB stick, not included, for a backup internet connection, so your Zipabox never loses its connection with the cloud. It comes with an additional slot that enables further expansion of your Zipabox controller with additional modules.


Serial Module is used for paring of Zipabox with the wired panels and USB devices.
