No, I dont think so
Do you use Control 4, and do you know if they have any interfacing capability?

Control 4 currently interfaces with a couple of alarm panels like G.E. They also communicate to various audio and video equipment using either serial or ir see http://www.control4.com

Hi,

I have interfaced Comfort security to Control4 using serial. 

Works great.

Hi,

Basically, I have programmed the Night, Day, Away and Security Off buttons (no security code needed).

Also, on the Security GUI in C4, I display zone activities, similar to the LCD Keypad.

I  programmed events for Gate, Sprinkers etc.

I also set variables for armed states, with this you can pass control to C4 eg all my lighting is C4, so when I set my alarm to Night mode, all the lights I nominated will be turned off by C4.

Yes, you can control anything in Comfort.

I will post a screen map tonight.

PS : There are preferred Security devices for C4, but NONE comes close to Comfort and that's the fact.

Hi dcrera,

I am interested in your Comfort C4 interface solution. Did you create using DriverWorks?

Regards

Sorry I did not get anywhere with this... To be honest I think if Cytech and extra vegetables got together to write the drivers jointly it would be a fantastic overall solution.

Cytech please try and get something sorted here it would open a new market for you I am sure.
