    Xantech MRC 88

    looks like you may have to have your dealer make you a serial driver. the RS-232 control codes and specifications can be found starting on page 86 of the manual http://www.sirkom.com/datos/doc_productos/archivo351/mrc88_manual.pdf

  11. and if my above reasons are not enough upon doing some more research which you clearly have not done: 300,000 American Homes Open To Hacks Of 'Unfixable' SimpliSafe Alarm https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomasbrewster/2016/02/17/simplisafe-alarm-attacks/#2e29f3d53b00 https://besthomesecuritycompanys.com/company/simplisafe/ The Bad Upfront costs No professional installation option Recent reports of system vulnerability Customer complaints Upfront Costs Although many SimpliSafe customers will still save money in the long run due to the company’s low monthly monitoring prices, there is an upfront equipment fee that ranges from $200 to $500+. There are five Simplisafe package options to fit a variety of budgets and needs, however, none include a carbon monoxide detector. Also important to note: you own this equipment forever after purchasing. Regardless, this price amounts to years of monitoring service from other top-rated alarm companies. If you need a system immediately and do not have cash on hand, there are other DIY security companies that do not charge any upfront equipment fees. No Professional Installation Option Some customers would prefer to have their home security system professionally installed rather than doing it themselves. Unfortunately, SimpliSafe does not offer professional installation options. Recent Reports of System Vulnerability As reported by Forbes in February 2016, SimpliSafe hardware is vulnerable to hackers, which could compromise the security of the home. Customer Complaints According to the user reviews we’ve received, chief complaints from SimpliSafe customers center around technical problems with the equipment, long customer service and monitoring center wait times, and issues with receiving the wrong hardware. Those complaints about the equipment include motion detectors, and window sensors not functioning correctly.
  12. without investigating their product any further (looks like a cheap DIY solution) I would start by this is what makes DSC better especially in this forum https://simplisafe.com/forum/customer-support-forum/testimonials-reviews-and-suggestions/home-automation-control4 https://simplisafe.com/forum/customer-support-forum/installing-and-using-simplisafe/control4-automation-system if that is not enough SimpliSafe founded 2006 DSC (Digital Security Controls) Founded in 1979 now I realize that just because a company has been around longer is does not make them better but they have a lot more experience and have been an industry leader for much longer and for a very good reason. DSC is not sold as a DIY solution IMO (though they are offering some newer products (iotega series) that may be considered that for tech savvy people) just my 2 cents. also judging by the response you received on your previous post on dec 22, 2017 i am not sure why you are even asking this question again?
  13. DSC is my go to brand of choice. Integrates well and easily with Control4. Large amount of highly reliable competitively priced options. Widely supported. It just works and works well IMO.
  14. it may have something to do with the built in ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts backlight and status LED brightness depending on the light level in the room. https://www.control4.com/docs/product/wireless-fan-speed-controller/data-sheet/english/latest/wireless-fan-speed-controller-data-sheet-rev-a.pdf
