I am awaiting my first Vera Lite to install. If someone can help me understand this process of integrating it with my DSC alarm panel.
These are the parts I need.
[ol][li]Vera Lite connected to LAN[/li]
[li]DSC Plugin from Vera’s marketplace downloading the Plugin from here. MiOS Apps
[li]DSC IT-100 DSC
[/li][li]DSC 1616, 1832 or 1864. PowerSeries Integration Module | DSC Security Products | DSC
[li]Serial to Ethernet gateway. http://www.embeddedworks.net/pdetail.php?mn=wire&prod=wire014&gclid=CNfK9bmujLYCFcR7QgodcwQAOg[/li]
[li]I then install this gateway on the IT-100 and ethernet it to my switch and the LAN my VL is on.[/li]
[li]Refer to installation instructions here. http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_dscalarmpanel[/li][/ol]
I realize as as an option, instead of the IT-100 + serial gateway I can go with a Envisalink 3 EyezOn - Smart Home Security No Monthly Fees
This route is a little more money but I will not have to deal with the extra Serial to Ethernet Gateway. I would like to have as clean a install as possible. For a few extra dollars, I might do this.
Does anyone know of the latest pro’s and con’s of the two peices of hardware? (IT-100+ gateway or Envisalink 3)
Such as can I hook the TI oe EL3 up to a static IP? Is there any more programming involved to get the VL to see my custom text zones?
Please keep in mind, I would like to have as many options as possible on my VL like being able to use my motions and switches as programmable features in my VL.
Thanks so much
