Re: Honeywell Ademco Vista Alarm Panels Plugin via AD2USB

Good afternoon all,
I've had my Vera and AD2USB for about a week and a half, and I'm getting a lot of triggers and scenes set up.  I've started using some basic PLEG commands, but I'm having problems interfacing with my alarm panel using PLEG.  I posted a thread over in the Lock, Motion & Security Control thread, but I haven't gotten any responses.  I'm posting a link over here, as it may be the more appropriate forum.

http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,37277.0.html

In a nut shell, I can't seem to get PLEG to arm my system when something triggers it.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't use PLEG but if it can run Luup maybe a work-around like this will address the issue:
Code: [Select]
    luup.call_action("urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:AlarmPartition2", "RequestArmMode", { State="Armed", PINCode="1111"} , DEVICE_ID_NUM)

The final argument in the function should be the device ID number of the partition.

Edit: fixed state name

Are you storing the pin code somewhere?  I have it load up something in the vera startup process.  If you think it is related to that, let me know and I will look up the code.

Is there a way to create a device for the letter D on the panel?  I have my garage door setup on a set of contacts and would like a device to easily open and close the garage door.

thanks

Hi--

  Does anyone know how to increase the polling of the Visa 20P devices. Vera still reports doors as open for 15 minutes after they have been closed.

  Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm pretty sure you can increase or decrease the TTL values in the app on the Vera.  The TTL value tells the Vera how long to keep the zone reported as 'faulted' (door open) before it checks again.  E.g. Let's say the TTL value is set to 60.  The garage door is open and Vera detects this.  A countdown from 60 now occurs.  If the garage door is still open at the end of 60, it stays faulted/open for another 60.  I think that's how mine used to work, not able to check at the moment but it's worth playing with the TTL value.

EDIT:

Default setting for TTL is too long, which shows zone in fault when they are cleared. I changed mine to 15 (15 seconds) which will show status change after 15 seconds.

The above was taken from post 969 I this thread, it says the same thing I am saying.  TTL values need to be changed

That's exactly why I came here, I'm looking for the same solution.  I'm sure I got an answer to this once before but can't find it!  Will search and if I find it, will post here. 

EDIT:

Ha! Found it!  Not as difficult as I remembered it to be... http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,13311.0.html

 Can anyone help me, I have a Vera plus and an envisalink connected to a vista 20p panel and I have a zwave fire and carbon detector. I want the smoke detector to trigger the 20p fire alarm in the event of a fire but I can't figure out how to trigger the letter key that I have programmed.

I know this isn't a PLEG thread but my issue seems tied to this plugin and I didn't know if anyone might have a better way to handle my problem.

I have a lock that I want to lock when the alarm is armed.  For some reason if I set the alarm with the door unlocked it will go through the motion and seem like it's arming. Once it gets to the end it arms, immediately disarms, and then locks the door.  If I arm with the door locked to begin with everything is fine.

Does anyone know what might be causing this issue?  At first I though it was because I was locking the door immediately but even placing it on a 20 second delay still keeps the alarm from setting with the door unlocked. It's almost like the presence of the PLEG condition is preventing the alarm from arming.

For what it's worth, here is my PLEG condition:

tSecurityArmed and tGarageDoorUnlocked and (tGarageDoorUnlocked; tSecurityArmed)

I guess I'm hoping there is an advanced setting in the Ademco Plugin that will help solve my problem.  If not, I'll retreat to the PLEG forum to see if they have any tips over there.

Thanks in advance for any help.

For what it's worth, I got this working.  Just in case anyone else has a similar issue I tied to the door locking to the exit delay (instead of arming) with a 30 second action delay.  It seems to work well now.  Apparently it's been this way for some time and I never realized it. My phone would always say it was armed, which it was but for only a second. :-*

I had all of this working well on a Vera Lite for years. I recently upgraded to a Vera Plus and had to relocate the Vera so I implemented a Raspberry Pi based on this thread.

http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,26672.0.html

The Pi side of things works well. Additionally I can trigger and get a response (chime from keypads on panel) for arming/disarming. However, I get no status indication in the Partition widget. Usually the status is indicated and the corresponding button is highlighted. Not really sure where to look to resolve this issue.

I think I've identified a bug of some form. Running Firmware 1.7.2414 on a Vera Edge.

Loading the AD2USB Plugin from the App store always results in an error

failed to load <DEVICENUMBER>/D_Codeset_1086.xml.lz - the device number is whatever device was created for the panel.

If I go to apps the plugin doesn't show installed. However, installing a second time it will install and increment the device number by 1 for the new device and the plug-in will show as installed but the error for the previous device continues. I can manually delete the device with:

http://<vera ip>:3480/data_request?id=device&action=delete&device=<device number>

This eliminates the error and things appear to progress properly (except for the issue in my previous post that I'm still investigating)

Hi All,

I am trying to control my Vista 20p through the Vera Mobile app but am having trouble.

I can control the arming/disarming from the PC just fine, but when I open the app the plugin doesn't have any options.

I attached a screenshot where you can see that my thermostat has the options button, but the Vista Partition does not.

Short of using the "My Modes" is there a way to access the desktop style of control from the app?

Thanks
