Hey so this is what I've got:

Ademco Honeywell Vista 21IP Alarm panel (with 6160RF and TuxedoTouch), no remote monitoring service
Envisilink EVL-4CG connect2go (fully configured and functional using connect2go software & app) same as EyezOn
Vera Edge running UI7

my problem is probably what everyones problem is. That the plugin doesn't exist for honeywell ademco panels so I've been attempting to use / configure the DSC plugin which I've read in a few places "Should work". but nobody confirms this.

I have the device showing up in Vera (as a DSC alarm), I've set its static IPaddress with :4025 and the correct MAC address. Inturn the partition device on VERA was created, and my zones, as I enable them in the configuration page, do show up. however there is no communication. my zone devices do not show change of state, and any commands I make (arm/disarm) do not communicate to the alarm panel. This functionality of course is fully functional from the connect2go web page and directly connecting to the envisilink's IP address is properly showing zone statuses.

Am I wasting my time trying to use a DSC alarm plugin for a honeywell panel or am I simply missing a configuration setting. Any help is much appreciated. ALSO, is it a consideration to scrap the envisilink and use a AD2USB module. Which i think would suck because I don't want to be connecting a CPU and keeping it running at all times just so I can see my honeywell panel through my Vera.

I like the idea of having all 8 hardwired input zones visible in VERA which I plan to use for other purposes which is part of the reason I'm not simply satisfied using the connect2go app.

Thanks for any help
