I've had no problems with the Elk plugin. It's been working fine for me for a few months.

That being said, if it's not being supported I can look at taking it over. I'm more of a javascript person but I can give python a shot.

It would be nice to have this supported again!

Re: Elk M1 Plugin

I seem to have lost the ability to connect to my M1 through port 2101. It is affecting both Indigo and my iPhone (EK Alarm). Last connection was April 21. I have no idea why. Trying to work through the Elk board. Not sure if something changed in Indigo or what? I noticed 8 days after I lost functionality.

Could be that the ethernet/serial interface is busted? I created this project in nodejs a little while ago. It works, but planned to expand it a bit more:

Uses a Raspberry Pi and a Serial-to-USB interface.

I realize this is WAY late... but did you upgrade the version on he M1EXP? I recall reading that broke functionality by forcing onto the secure port or something. Also can't be downgraded.

Re: Elk M1 Plugin

Okay. I've not heard from anyone so I've taken this project over.

Most recent package can be found here: https://github.com/billchurch/indigo-el ... Plugin.zip

I've incremented the version number to 2.0.0, but made no changes as of yet. I'd prefer to have any problems or issue reports made on GitHub so it can be tracked with the code:

https://github.com/billchurch/indigo-el ... gin/issues

Also welcome and pull requests if you can program.

Re: Elk M1 Plugin

This is now officially in the Indigo Plugin store here: https://www.indigodomo.com/pluginstore/124/

I needed to clean up a few things to conform to the requirements to the new store, as well as handle the transition from an abandoned plugin. As a result, this upgrade is not directly compatible with devices created prior to v2.0.0.

More details at the plugin page. Please let me know what you think. I'd prefer to track requests and problems at the GitHub repository, if possible:

https://github.com/billchurch/indigo-elk-m1-plugin

Issues / Feature Request Tracking:

https://github.com/billchurch/indigo-el ... gin/issues

Looking forward to getting this thing running better and supporting more. One thing I could use help with is people to test this new version on newer firmware. Right now this is my current Elk M1 configuration, anything outside of this would be great to get feedback on:

Code: Select all
System Type: Elk M1 Gold
Hardware Version: 0.13
Boot Version: 3.36
Firmware Version: 5.2.10
Voice List Version: 0.8

Elk M1 EXP:
Bootware Version: 1.2.0
Application Version: 1.3.28
