Vista Alarm Panel Arming
« on: March 15, 2014, 03:46:05 pm »
I think the VeraMate app is the best.  I did however found a problem.  In the Ademco Vista Partition panel I am able to 'Arm Stay' and 'Disarm' the system.  I cannot 'Arm' the system away.  I have to go to the detail panel and it works from there.  Is this a bug or is it supposed to work this way?

Hi - this was actually a bug, but should have been fixed. Are you using the latest version? Please check your AppStore app for pending updates?

Hello,

I just tried it again with the same results.  I can only arm AWAY from the detailed screen.

I am using the latest iOS version 7.1 and version 5.2 of VeraMate.
Is there anything I can do to help nail this down?
Thanks.

(Sorry for the delay - I've been out of the country).
Any chance you could pop a screen shot of what is displayed in the web interface?  It might be different then the one I've tested on.   
Thanks

Attached are the two screen shot.  The first one does not allow me to arm away.  The second one does.
Thank you for your time.

Hi Hwve - sorry I didn't get back to you!   I've just had a realisation of what this will be - I'm looking for an "ARM" command rather then an "Away" command!  It's simply because I chose to name the button differently ("arm" not "away") - I didn't spot that :/.

I have an update (5.3) already with Apple, but as soon as that is released, I'll put in another fix for this straight away!!

Hi hwve - the 5.5 update should've fixed your problem.   I wouldn't mind knowing for sure if this fixed it for you (as I couldn't test with your specific device). :)

Hello Veramate,

I tried it and it is working fine now.  At least from with my LAN.  I try later using the internet.
The arm and disarm work from both screens now although the buttons are a little smal on the expanded screen.
So far so good.  Thanks a million.

I forgot to mention that the above results were using version 5.5.2.

I am now updating to version 5.6.2.

Ah - you aren't seeing the alarm panel specific row in VeraMate?  Could you let me know the device name (in the webui, go to settings/advanced, and it's the device_type)?  I thought I had this pick up, but I might have missed it.

Thanks

I am not sure what you mean here. 
In the Alarm room there are two panels.  The Ademco Vista alarm panel and the Ademco Vista partition panel.  Those buttons are OK.  When I click on the expand triangle, I get the many more buttons (this is the screen that allows me to enter and store my code).  These are the once that are a little small for my fat fingers.

I think I just figured out what you were looking for the device type is :  urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:VistaAlarmPartition:2

Actually sorry, my fault as I had forgotten :)  Your screenshot above shows it's showing the 3 buttons properly.  When do you need to enter your code in the detail (expanded) screen though?  I thought it was only when you click disarm, which should be possible from the Disarm button on the main list....

Of course you are right.  I get the confirm box when I disarm from the 3 button panel.  That did not work before so that is now moot.  I don't have to use the expanded panel anymore.
