Transition from Serial Bridge to the DSC plugin.

Here are some question the I have so far.. and I suspect that they will be a lot of them! lol

I have been adding to my script for years, so it will be a long process to switch over...

Is the plugin capable of speaking to the the 5580TC escort to control my thermostat?

Re: Transition from Serial Bridge to the DSC plugin.

I have a script that also checked is the garage door are open.

My script is that if the temp is -XX and any of the garage door are open for more than 2 minutes, that would trigger an alarm to me.

How would you go about going so with this plugin.

So far I have made a group for the garage door.... but there is so many ways to go about the rest..... which on is best?

I've never used it but the plugin does have an option to control the old DSC thermostats when connected using a IT-100 module.

I might suggest you disable your existing scrips, install the new plugin and test it out before committing as I don't recall many (if any) people commenting on the forums about using it.

Re: Transition from Serial Bridge to the DSC plugin.

here is a script that would put the alarm after on hour of inactivity in the house.
Now is the last zone active contained the "Porte" it would armed in away mode otherwise it Armes in Stay mode.

How can we go about this with this plugin.
Code: Select all
property connectionName : "DSC864"
tell application "IndigoServer"
   if value of variable "DSC_Zones_Activity" contains "Porte" then
      log "True path - variable value is: " & (value of variable "DSC_Zones_Activity")
      tell application "Serial Bridge"
         send to source connectionName byte list {48, 51, 48, 49, 67, 52, 13, 10}
      end tell
   else
      log "False path - variable value is: " & (value of variable "DSC_Zones_Activity")
      tell application "Serial Bridge"
         send to source connectionName byte list {48, 51, 49, 49, 67, 53, 13, 10}
      end tell
   end if
end tell
