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
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.
