Node-RED plugin for EnvisaLink

Post by pakerfeldt »

I have had this EnvisaLink 2DS connected to my DSC alarm for too long without doing anything fancy. Since I have started using Node-RED to automate things at home I decided to write a plugin/binding to EnvisaLink for Node-RED. If anyone is interested in trying it out, feel free to do so and report back any issues or requests you may have. It's sort of in alpha stage right now so don't expect it to function all to well. But I plan to do a proper release soon.

If you're new to Node-RED it's a visual tool for automation and IoT. You wire up flows of data from one end to another. I currently only use it to automate blinds and lights and to store sensor data in InfluxDB/MongoDB. But I plan to expand it to incorporate the alarm system. Like making sure lights are off when I arm DSC.

And finally, if you want to test the plugin, you can find it here: https://github.com/pakerfeldt/node-red- ... envisalink

I recently updated this library and it should be a lot more stable now. If anyone is using the plugin I would appreciate some feedback.

I think the Honeywell protocols are different but I thought you might be able to help me.

I am trying to use your envisalink plugin with a honeywell system. (https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red ... ink-ademco)
I have it working to the point I can see all the statuses on the envisalink in reads.
When I use the settings in image1 I am unable to arm or disarm the system.  I got that code 0331XXXX from the image2.

I'm using node-red for various integrations (Hubitat, modbus, etc).
I installed the pallette (node-red-contrib-envisalink-ademco. I have a Vista 15p) and configured the IP address of the envisalink
It says connected.

How can I receive/extract (properly) the custom codes to see arming/disarming and zones status with this flow ?

I don't want to set/disable alarm through NR, just obtain the different data to send them to another linked unit.
