Re: ad2usb plugin discussion

If you are looking to have perimeter PIR sensors that trigger events and notifications only. You can add any wireless sensor to the plugin but you don't need to have it programed into the alarm panel. I have a few outdoor wireless PIR's that control lights and notify on any one moving around outside. Just add a new device type "alarm zone" enter it's serial number and loop number. Now the alarm panel does not see the sensor but the plugin does. Set up a trigger to fire any time the device state changes.

Re: ad2usb plugin discussion

Thanks for the tip. Do you include the a in front of the wireless number as well as the dash in the middle? For a standard 5800 PIR it would be a loop one?

The plug-in is working in basic mode. I tried adding some relay boards and assigning the zones to the different relays in sequence, then tried adding emulator boards and assigning the zones to the different emulator board spots. The zones don’t register or clear. Not sure I can operate this 20se in advanced mode? So am I out of luck getting the wireless sensors to work if it won’t operate in advanced mode? Or is there something I’m doing wrong?

Hi hamw
I am running a vista 128 panel in advanced mode. I think your vista 20se should work with wireless in basic mode. I have included a screen
shot of the setup for one of my outdoor wireless motion detectors. The only difference for your setup is the zone number. With the 20se
you need to enter only 2 digits for the zone number. Also this wireless zone is not programed into the vista128 panel.

Re: ad2usb plugin discussion

I am suddenly getting a stream of errors from the plugin. I have been using 1.5.5. I downloaded 1.60 but it will not install. An error message says something is wrong with the plugin.

I have no idea. Did you download the plugin from the Plugin-Store? I just downloaded a copy and it installed without any issues.
Was there anything in the log?

Re: ad2usb plugin discussion

I downloaded from a page somewhere in Indigo. Could you give me a link to the download you used?

Re: ad2usb plugin discussion

Of course. Sorry to not be thinking. I went to Plugin Store. You have a nice prominent spot there at top left. I downloaded the file and launched it. Got exactly same error as before. I am using Indigo 7.1.1. I restarted my Mac and tried again. Same result. Any suggestions on how to diagnose this?

I’d drop Matt and Jay a note.. My guess is a corrupted plugin settings file. Unfortunately, I a,m not near a computer right now to tell you exactly how to find it.
