SETTINGS FOR CADDX PANEL
In order for the Vera plugin to properly control the CADDX security system and to utilize all the control functionality that the plugin provides, you must program the CADDX system to interface with the Vera plugin.
The CADDX NX-8e can be programmed using CADDDX DL900 software or can be programmed directly from the alarm’s main lcd panel. The settings below show how to program the NX8-e directly from the alarm lcd panel:
Here are the steps and location entries you must make to program the alarm for Vera plugin control of the alarm system:
—Go to the main lcd control panel for your CADDX NX8-e alarm system
—Enter “Program Mode” … Push “*8” (ignore quotes on all entries – enter the data between the quotes) -
—You are then prompted to enter your code… YOU MUST ENTER THE SO-CALLED “PROGRAM CODE” NOT YOUR REGULAR ARM/DISARM USER CODE!!!

—LOCATION PROGRAMMING - GENERAL
You will now have to program a series of alarm system LOCATIONS and SEGMENTS …you first enter the location number followed by the pound " # " key i.e.
For Location 210, enter “210#” .
After entering, for example 210#, you are greeted with a series of “Segments” … Segment 1, Segment 2 etc… Some locations have only one segment and others have several. Each segment has up to 8 data positions 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 which are either turned on (you see the number displayed on the screen) or OFF (the individual number is NOT displayed).
After completing the entering of all data changes in an individual segment, you must press star/asterisk " * " to save the change!!! The asterisk also takes you from segment to segment. DON’T FORGET TO HIT THE " * " KEY TO SAVE ANY CHANGES OR THEY WILL BE LOST!!!
Location Data to be entered:
LOCATION #207 - 1 ON (Serial Port Enable for Home Automation)
LOCATION #208 - 4 ON (Serial Port Baud Rate = 31600)
LOCATION #209 - SEGMENT #1 (Set the Home Automation protocol to BINARY): 1 OFF
