    I'm looking for a 5000SM/2 Sim Module for a project I'm working on, but I can't see them available in the UK anywhere. Is anyone aware of a retailer that sells them in the UK (or Europe), as it would be a huge help to get me started developing hardware :).

    Sorry for confusion

    The link you posted is ST7 I not sure who its made by, but in my Comfort alarm system I upgraded from 5000SM/2 to ST7, when Cytech Comfort upgraded their C-Bus plugin to v2. It maybe Cytech made their own version, for use with comfort.

    Before Cytech released ST7 laser use to sell 5000SM/2 which i previously bought and still use with raspberry pi.

    Only reason I have a spare is due to upgrade.

    The module you are after is the 5000SM/2, commonly known as a C-Bus SIM.

    You want the generic one, and not one recovered from another piece of equipment by choice, as they are branded for each OEM manufacturer and appear in Toolkit as different devices. They also may or may not have the same feature set as the generic one (I can't be sure but I wouldn't be surprised).

    As a general rule you can't use them with Toolkit to program as it would then directly compete with the standard PCI/CNI etc.

    Unfortunately I don't know of any outlet in the UK, but I'd be surprised if someone on this board couldn't help you out.

    Cheers

    Yes thats right, i just checked in Toolkit the 5000SM/2 shows up as INT_CMFT - Comfort Intelligent Home/Office System.

    But its working fine for me for Toolkit access, I have it connected to Pi with C-Gate running on Pi so im happy :)
