    Passcode screen with multiple passcodes?

    I'm playing with a passcode screen right now, have it working so I can passcode a screen, and the Passcode screen pops up correctly, and lets me in if I do the correct passcode.

    However, I'd like to be able to have more than one passcode for the screen - ie. multiple users, different passcodes, but it's of course the same passcode screen. The idea is that when the passcode screen pops up, you could punch in anyone of, say, 3 different passcodes, and they'd all work.

    In that way, if I want to 'remove' a user, I can remove that person's code without everyone else having to learn a new one.

    Any ideas if this is possible to rig?

    Bump - anyone ever tried to do this?

      I don't have answer for you but I was wondering if you have made something from scratch or if you have used something pre-defined from HS Touch.

      Same thing is next on my list.

          Bump on this. Was just looking for similar. Wanting multiple codes to access HSTouch security screen for alarm system, as an alternative to trying to script passing keypad values for specific alarm panel arm/disarm functions.

            I have never encountered this kind of situation before with my HS3. I would recommend you to get in touch with the technical team of Homeseer. They can help you out with an exact solution.

              I have tested successfully Matrix keypad with software from zumungo.com It is not a screen. It is $5 piece of plastic with 16 keys. Attached to WiFi controller ESP32 that runs zumungo.com software. They support multiple passwords, time schedules, owner, guest and employees passwords etc. The protocol is open, well documented and I managed to integrate it with HS3 very well using Big5 plug-in. Now that the integration is done and I have a pilot unit working I'm thinking of making a small batch of 6 to 10 units to spread around the property. I have gone full circle from simple keypads as UI trough screens around the house with GUI and about a dozen of GoogleHome units for control by voice. I realize that each technology has it's own space.

                I have done this (and am still using it). I have HSTouch pass the code entered to a script, and that determines if it is one of the correct codes and then there is an action back to HSTouch based on that.

                      Thank You
                      one could also use the keypad to enter a code that would trigger an event / or trigger an event to turn a device on.

                        Sorry for the delay here, somehow I missed your bump and only saw this now when cleaning up my email. I eventually ended up writing my own script to do the job, kind of a similar fashion to what joegr did, except that I didn't want to have to hit ENTER - I wanted the keypad to behave more like a hardware keypad, hit the four numbers and boom, alarm disarms. It's also used to enter the security panel on the ipad - ie when you hit the Security button on the ipad, it asks for a code before letting you in to "Do things" to security. The script determines if it's being called to just go into the panel, or if it's being called because the keypad was popped up due to the security system being triggered, and acts appropriately.

                        Code:
                        Sub Main(ByVal Parm() as String)
                        
                        
                            Dim NumArray() as String = {"1111", "2222", "3333", "4444", "5555", "6666"}
                            Dim NumMaxLen = 4
                            'Dim Client = Parm(1) & ":" & Parm(1)
                            Dim Client = "hallway:hallway"
                            Dim Box = "Passcode:Text Box 001"
                            Dim Fail = "Passcode:Fail"
                            Dim logName = "Security Passcode"
                            'Dim Debug as Boolean = True
                            Dim Debug as Boolean = False

                            Dim Keyed = Parm(0)

                                Disarm = "disarm"
                            End If
                        
                            If Debug Then
                                For i As Integer = LBound(Parm) To UBound(Parm)
                                hs.writelog(logName, "P" & i & ": " & Parm(i))
                                Next i
                            End If
                        
                            If Debug Then hs.writelog(logName, "Passed value is " & Keyed)

                                    hs.writelog(logName, "Disarm is true so automatically disarming alarm")
                                End If
                            ElseIf Len(Keyed) >= 4 Then

                            End If
                        
                        End Sub
                        It's a little bit more work, because you need to add the script to every key on your keypad, but the results are great. I also have it play a short 'beep' on each keypress, and if the person puts in an invalid code it immediately sends a loud buzz and clears the code so you can try again.
