Cool, I cant hide my excitement knowing all this.

I will be going for the Premier Elite with external perimeter sensors too (hard wired) and also the R8 (relay?) module.  What will your plugin allow me to do?  Will it require the alarm being not graded as level 2 or something if I try and make it more bespoke or if I jus take the outputs from the relay the grading will still remain fine?

No idea about the grading - although I can't see how remote operation via Texecom's own published protocol would affect things.

The plug-in allows remote arm, part-arm and disarm of each partition, live monitoring of partition and zone statuses, remote keypad LED display, control and monitoring of programmable outputs and daily time synchronisation with Vera.  The panel can be connected to Vera via LAN or USB.

The combination of the heating and alarm done properly in independently reliable systems bit fully controllable from Vera is very good, and very exciting. I recommend the USB output from the telecom serial port to control it. As racarter says it's telecoms own API and they even have controls on their iOS app to control home automation devices. The grading if the alarm is only relevant for insurance and monitoring. Does this imply you will be using someone setup and monitor it for you. You may need to check they would be happy with the extra control. Otherwise I and I beelibbe racarter have just done or all ourselves so the grading is irrelevant, other than security in knowing it's a proper professional alarm that won't fail if Vera crashes.

I would want the grading for insurance purposes yes and the alarm installer will only give me access to the Texecom code after the one year service contract has expired, but then if I make any changes this will change the grading and potentially affect the insurance premium because it will not longer then be touched by alarm companies for obvious reasons i.e. no control over the alarm and faults etc with customers tinkering with it.

Hi

just ordered a Vera edge and some other kit to start on the home automation. I already have a few Neostats installed, so hooking these up via the Vera would be very good. Could I get a copy of the plug-in please?

thanks

I guess the concern would be whether the USB serial connection using the Texecom API could potentially change the settings, rather than control the alarm as a normal user.  From memory, racarter would need to confirm, it may need the engineers code, which would mean you couldnt use it, also whether in theory the API gives full access to the setup of the alarm. 

If they wont allow you to use the serial or ethernet connection and the API then yes, the RM8 relay is your only option, but you would then need to plug those outputs into zwave devices that Vera would recognise.

hello RA Carter
can you send me the app plugin for the heatmiser please? 

i have the Neo and want to use the vera platform ( i have the Veralite G) to control it, will the vera platform speak to the neo hub?  or do i replace the neo hub with the veralite G

Also, is it possible to control the heating schedule from the thermostat and also in the vera app so that the most recent changes will overwrite the other? Or does the neo just become a slave to the Vera scenes?

appreciate your help!

arbtguk,

The plug-in runs on Vera and talks to the hub, which in turn talks to the thermostat(s).  The heating schedule runs on the thermostat but can be overridden by Vera if required.  Once the override period has expired the thermostat resumes its normal schedule.  It is not currently possible to amend the thermostat's schedule via the plug-in.

I've PMed you about sending the plug-in.

Hi Alan

Could I trouble you fit the plug in please. I am Just ordering some Neo Thermostats. I have the older RS485 version but not had much success in intergrating them.

Regards
Phil

Hi guys,

I'm new to the forum, soon my vera plus will arrive. One of my first projects is to be able to get more control over my CH, HW & UFH. Would someone be able to drop me a plugin for heatmiser neo, please  ;D As I'm new member I don't think I can send private messages  ???

Thank You
