Stop using the Vodafone service centre number for your alarm systems and other monitoring!
Stop using the Vodafone TAP gateway access number +447785499993 for your alarm TAP to Text (SMS) messaging. It’s unreliable and is not a dedicated managed TAP gateway!
Its time you switched to OpenTAP, established since 2012-2018 and its the UK’s only official TAP gateway which has been approved by Texecom and Honeywell.
