    Basic Input Question

    I am starting to connect door sensors to the Ocelot and have a couple very basic question.
    1. For supervised inputs, would I connect one wire to the input and the other wire to a common (with a 1k resistor between them)? Also, it seems there are only 4 commons but 8 inputs. Would I double up on the commons if I needed 8 supervised?
    2. How do I connect an analog connection?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    YES

    YES

    2. How do I connect an analog connection?

    You would use the same inputs but with the 1K resistor removed. You then set the input to analog via the Homeseer device.

    Thanks in advance for the help.
