Alarm Panel Intergration
« on: April 18, 2010, 07:31:46 am »
Hi All,
Looking for advice on integrating our existing alarm panel using mce's built in security if possible.

We have 5 battery operated wireless pir's, 3 x hard wired pir's, external siren and strobe, internal piezo siren, wireless control panel, wired control panel and 3 x wireless remotes for alarm control. Can mce control this type of equip and would I need something like a GC-100 or would it be simpler to use RS232 which I think the panel has..........any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

The alarm system is a Honeywell Ademco Vista-48A

Cheers
Beeker

if you can attach the RS232 port to an MD then you can integrate it that way.  I think you will need to create a device template for it though

Thanks,
What about if it does not have a an RS232 port can I still connect it to the core as I have a cabling duct between the panel & core

I now have the install manual if this helps....I can email it if someone can help to give a few pointers to whether this panel is able to be integrated into mce
