Re: PLUGIN: Ademco Vista Alarm Panel with EVL3

Hi! I have a honeywell 20p panel and EVL4 module connected to it.

I am trying to follow the "Installation: Fresh Install" guide. I get stuck at the step where I need to "enter the Installer password for Alarm Panel". In the "EVL3Vista" tab there is no such thing. In the "Panel" tab there is an installer code option. When I'm trying to set the code through it, I receive an error: "No code in the Installer Code input" in the blue bar on top of the page. In the "Codes" tab there is a way to change the code and I did it, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

I'd be happy to get any help or advice. Thanks!

I found the place where you can enter the installer code:

EVL3 Vista Panel device

"Panel" tab => "Advanced" => "Variables" => "InstallerCode" is where you can enter the code for the panel.

After that all other steps without issue.

If i wanted to toggle or turn off chime mode in the evening and turn it back on at a schedule time. what luup would i use?

tried
luup.call_action("urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:EVL3VistaAlarmPanel1","ToggleChimeMode","", DeviceID )

Great Plugin BTW! Using with EVL4 Honeywell 20p and works fine.

Just in case it might help someone I thought I'd post a tip on installation and configuration. Among various small issues with the data entry pages which I solved by entering IP address and installer codes via the "Advanced" pages, I found it would error out on the "Read Panel Config" saying something about unrecognized status or trouble status. After looking at the code it was clear this was a result of my having a couple of zones bypassed. Removed the bypassed so I got a clean "Ready to arm" on the panel which solved the problem. In other words, the panel must be in a completely clean and ready state in order for the Read Panel Config code to work.

Hope that little tidbit streamlines things for someone else.

Cheers,
Ron

Hi
I did a full install of my panel....then after the fact added a zone.    I've manually added the zone in the zone table under the EVL Vista Panel....but I don't see the new device showing up under devices.
Any suggestions?
