it looks like the package wasn't folded into the build. I have added it to the list of packages to build for this next pass.

Has anyone here tested with the new Ademco/Honeywell Vista 21iP panel that integrates the ICM onto the main panel? 

I am thinking that it will be very similar to the 20P combined with the ICM.  I have recently purchased the 21iP for close to $200 which is a great savings to the combination of the 20P and ICM.  I would like to hear if anyone has and potentially test this out with LinuxMCE.

Also any word when the next release is coming out with the previous feature included?

Thanks!

You need the ICM device as the driver was written for the ICM, not the panel.  Thus any panel supported by the ICM will work out of the box with LinuxMCE.  Though if it actually integrates the ICM device and not a variant of it then it may work.

Thanks for the hard work everyone - the VistaICM is wheeling it's way to my house as we speak.

I'm pretty sure the 21iP still needs the vista icm to work with lmce. From what I can tell, its ip capabilities were designed for alarmnet integration only. Honeywell phone support is pretty good - give them a call and see what they say.

Maybe this is the answer we've been looking for...

This is from the Vista-21ip Installation Manual:

Code: [Select]
∗29 Menu Mode for IP and GSM Module Programming
This mode is for programming the Internet connection (IP) and optional GSM Module configuration,
collectively referred to as the Internal Device.
NOTE: The Internal Device is automatically set to address 3 and cannot be changed.
The following section describes the programming of the Internal Device using an alpha keypad.
Alternatively, these options can be programmed via the AlarmNet Direct website. After programming is
complete, the control must be registered with AlarmNet via the Internet connection. Refer to the
Registration with AlarmNet section for procedures.
IMPORTANT: The use of the IP connection or the VISTA-GSM module requires an AlarmNet–I account.
Please obtain the account information from the central station prior to programming this module.

The ICM is now installed - I'm working through the MCE integration now...
