I have had my EVL-3 running successfully now for a few months. Arming and disarming via scent, PLEG and VeraMate on iOS all working well. This week I installed 4 Z-Wave smokes and I want to have them trigger a panic alarm should they go off which will then call my central monitoring station and send me a text message. The issue I’m having is getting the panic to work. I found some references to the EnableRemotePanic option in the advanced section, changing it to true or panic does not seem to work. Anyone get this to work…?
I’ve set EnableRemotePanic to ‘panic’ and tried using PLEG as follows
condition: door_open and alarm_armed
action:device:alarm control panel device Action: RequestPanicMode State:panic
the wierd thing I noticed is that to my knowledge I’m using partition 1
however in PLEG whe I select the Device Action it comes up with this list
Note: I have successfully used the alarm to trigger PLEG/scenses so know that the comms via envisalink are working well (I can even remote arm via HomeWave).
