Cytech have developed an Crestron interface to Comfort using the Crestron software tools, coutesy of Crestron Asia.
I am happy to inform you that Crestron is able to interface with  Comfort to allow full control and Monitoring of the security system using a touchscreen as a user interface.

The following functions can be implemented;

Arm and disarm the security system using the onscreen keypad




Show zone status open, close, trouble





Bypass zones and show bypass status




 

Show AC failure, low battery, and Communications failure




Work as Video intercom with the Comfort door stations with very good audio and video quality.






Hear voice menu, record and hear messages




The above screenshots show how the various screens can look

Equipment List (typical)
Crestron:
MC2E Processor
TPS-IMPC audio interface
TPS4000 Touchscreen

Comfort
CP9000 Comfort Controller
UCM/232M Serial Interface Module with AUD01 Audio plugin. This has a Male Rs232 connector and a straight Rs232 cable to the Crestron Female Rs232 connector
The Crestron is programmed to use the Comfort protocol in talking to Comfort so a normal UCM is used (Not the universal UCM)

DS01 or DS02 Intercom with Audio/Video (Optional)


We believe this is the most comprehensive interface for Crestron to any alarm system
The Crestron configuration files can be provided to Comfort/Crestron Installers.

Please contact support@cytech.biz

The Cytech  Simple Windows and vtp files and images can be downloaded from

I believe Crestron offers an RS232 Interface to their processor only
However there is an Xpanel software which is able to access the device through an IP address to see the same user interface

You could to this over internet, by setting up a TCP/IP client in the Crestron program and use the Comfort IP UCM...

Yes you will need to upgrade to Comfort II and a new UCM/232M (RS232 with male connector).

Yes the interface can be by UCM/Ethernet if Crestron has a TCP/IP interface
