Connecting to Programable Output 17 & 18 for Status monitoring

Answered

Hi Mike

Trying to set up a new install of Homebridge Konnected v1.1.8 for an Ademco panel using 2 interface panels. I have set-up up the Config using Cofig-ui-x, as the panels were not recognised automatically when I installed the plugin. Successfully got the first panel monitoring Zones 1 through 6 working, but I'm unsure how to configure the second panel to monitor the Programable Outputs from the Ademco board. Currently selected "Contact Sensor" for the "Type" of the  two zone that I have connected to Programable Outputs 17 & 18. Could you please confirm the correct settings for these Zones? Thanks in advance. 

Here is my current config file

  • I've converted this to a ticket to resolve privately and will circle back with any configuration notes or software updates that the rest of the public may come across and resolve with on their own.

  • Rob, thank you for helping me troubleshoot this. For anyone else interested, here's some details that appear to have fixed Rob's problem:


    First off, there were duplicate panel entries both separate panels leading to four (4) separate panel configurations inside his Konnected block in the Homebridge config.json file.


    After trying that, Rob had a service person program outputs 17 and 18 on my Honeywell Ademco Alarm with the following settings:

    17 Alarm Status: Off - low, Away or Stay - high
    18 Alarm Triggered: Off - low, On - high


    However, neither setting was registering a change of state for either Zone when triggered (he tried Zone Type Contact sensor and then Motion Sensor).


    In this case, there is either an issue with Homebridge needing to sync its config settings with the cached states, OR this could be a power issue with the interface boards.


    The latter was the final resolution, Rob tried connecting the interface to a different Aux power source on the Honeywell board and recalibrated the Zones – now everything is working as planned.
