DSC NEO Integration

Recommended Posts

Yes, it can be programmed to arm the DSC alarm system at a given time. Programming is done in Composer (HE or Pro) once the driver is installed and set up. Installation and setup is done in Composer Pro (dealer software).

Many Thanks, this is reassuring. Do you know whether this would work on an older controller like:C4-hc250-bl Home Automation System Controller. And do I really need a dealer or is composer pro available to end users as well so that I could install it myself?

Unfortunately you cannot set up the controller yourself but you can program what you desire after initial setup using the end user version of the software Composer Home Edition.  The pro software is only available for dealers.

If you plan on sourcing an older used controller, try to find an HC250-BL-1 or HC-800-BL-1.  The model you mentioned (BL) does not have a "site licence" so you will not have access to a C4 mobile app, or PC/MAC app without it.  Look for the BL-1.

I offer remote mote programming/integration services if you decide that you need assistance with the next step.

Many thanks guys! I hope this will solve my annoying power series neo issue.

Dear Dan, I wrote you a pm. Would you mind letting me know briefly what the next step would be?

Cheers,

Hi All,  My setup sends a warning chirp to the alarm keypads whenever my internet goes down.   I seem to recall a setting in either the TL280 or overall Neo Panel setup where you can disable this but can't locate it easily.   Appreciate if anyone knows the alarm panel subsection to disable this if they can share.   I only have the TL280 for C4 integration and have a cellular alarm connection so its not critical for me to hear the chirping (versus someone that has alarm solely connected via internet monitoring).  Every time i upgrade my switch or internet goes down it can wake up folks if sleeping etc so want to disable it.

Thanks!

I have had Control4 talking to my TL280 (5.03) and HS2032 for some time now since my C4 2.10.2 system has been fully functional for the last 6 mos or so.  I am able to arm and disarm the alarm in C4 within my LAN and outside the home as well.  I have read all of the forum entries here and other places and as I take another run at this I just need a level set.

The PDF document referred to in this thread as well as others shows things that I do not see in Control4 on any of my navigators.  My various security windows look similar to what I see in the PDF but....SHOULD I BE ABLE TO SEE:

1.  Status, Zones and History tabs at top?  I do see status and zones off to the left on the iPhone navigator (see attached screen print).  I have NEVER seen the history tab exposed.  Zones and status  work fine and show all the zones in my system albeit with some mislabeled doors vs windows etc (I understood this was fixed with the old Domosapiens IT-100 serial driver).

2.  Should I see "Security Panel" or "Partition 1" in the navigator.  For the attached screen print this dialog was opened under the heading security panel.  Occasionally I see Partition 1 as the entry point but all other points here remain the same.  

3.  MOST importantly I have never been able to use the functions menu from within C4 for such things as bypassing zones while away from the house, temporary codes and the other things I would hope that would be here should the functions icon ever show as enabled.

 

All items in the driver seem to look as everyone has explained here but I just wanted to confirm as it is not  100% clear in these forums or in the PDF if the extended functionality I am after should be enabled with the latest driver, C4 version and other linkages here (protocol version is 02.17) and I am using AES-encryption 128 and of course all my keys are working (show true) and IP is communicating. It stops if I reset the TL-280 but always comes back in a few minutes.  I just never see history or a functions menu enabled.

Should I?

Thanks in advance.

Did the bypassing feature ever get resolved using the TL-280? I have the same issue.

I finally figured this out by turning off the section in the TL280 that sends trouble alerts when internet goes down.  Was a real PIA that every time i was doing network work or internet down the alarm chirped like a smoke detector and didnt stop until the internet was live again.
