Good to know.  I never did get the ntp server configured on m1xep.  Nice addition.

Command retries at startup, currently will retry a command to alarm system twice with a 300ms gap in between before dying.

Does this plugin support temperatures yet?

Thinking about picking up a M1ZTSR to monitor a lake....  Otherwise I may go RFXCOM.

so Vera shows a numerical figure for the temp in the GUI?  Can we base rules off temperature points?

Yep.  Image attached.  Vera treats it as a regular temp sensor, so you can do rules and LUA code using it.

I'm running the 1.1 version of the Elk plugin.
What do I need to do to update it to your 2.0 version now?

Thanks,

Thanks,

Any chance of getting this new version on the market thingy?  I haven't really run into any bugs with it and it seems solid.

Sorry missed the question

1. Download zip file here: -
http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_elk-alarm-panel/changeset/93/branches/2.0_changes?old_path=%2F&format=zip

2. Extract zip file to location of your choice.

3. In UI5 go to "APPS >> Develop Apps >> Luup Files" Screenshot attached.

4. Using Browse buttons browse to where files were extracted. Do this for all eight files.

5. Tick the "Restart Luup after upload" button.

6. Click to "GO" button.

And that should be it.

regards

John

Playing around with the new update, I found a small bug.

If I click on the log tab, it will timeout and show nothing.
Then if I click on time and update Elk RTC to PC time, then back to the log tab, it will show the log fine.

So I changed my Elk XEP to use the same internet time as I use for my PC. But this had no effect on the Log tab. Only after I do the Time tab again, will it show the logs.

Something is requiring me to first update the Elk RTC time, even though both read the same time.

Does the same to me but it does not matter which tab you go to it has the same effect so not related to time tab.

I have not yet worked out why it is doing what it does :(

No luck with the M1XSP i bought... I have the XSP enrolled and visible within ELK and I followed the setup from the main ELK Plugin WIKI, it cannot establish communication.  I keep getting Device Not Ready.

I'm configured exactly like this;
http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_elk-alarm-panel/attachment/wiki/UI5/ui5_serial_port_config.png

I even bought the USB to Serial adapter suggested as the best one on the Vera WIKI.

Does the baud rate still need to be 115,200?  I dont see this baud rate supported on M1XSP.

I selected the ELK ALARM PANEL as the device in the Serial setup...  I lastly chose the ELK USB device I created as the Parent to the ELK alarm panel.  No Luck.

Whats the best way to trouble shoot this?

Thanks,
