Thanks to this feature, the operator who receives the alarm triggered by a W-AIR handset can additionally receive information about the closest Base Station and the type of alarm triggered (e.g. Man Down, Alarm Button). This information is passed using Messaging protocol supported on W-AIR starting from the firmware indicated in this document.
What is the RPN of the base station?
RPN can be found on the W-AIR base station's interface → Home/ Status tab, RFPI Address; in the example below the RPN of the base station is "00":

- Open the terminal from WMS and edit the call file template config located in the file /var/lib/callweaver/dialplan/alarm.template.
Start W-AIR alarms service on the PBX and enable it permanently:
# systemctl start wairmsg # systemctl enable wairmsg
Add the new Dialplan context "alarm-wair". This is the default Dialplan specified in the template file, use this name if you haven't changed it.
