    Wireless security systems.

    Guys,
    I have a friend who's house was recently broken into and he's asking me about a good wireless security system that he can install him self and will interface with HomeSeer. Are there any "good" wireless systems that interface?

    I use the CaddX system, pretty cheap, easy to install and supports wired or wireless, also has a free plug-in. The jvcaddx forum could lead you to supported model numbers.

      Will this interface WIRELESSLY with Homeseer?

      I have an old outdated wired Caddx system that I would like to replace with one the will utilize the existing hard wired door switches. In a perfect world, I would like to be able to add the DS-10 switches I use on the windows and include a couple X-10 motion detectors. Then have the alarm wireless interface to Homeseer box that is on the other side of the house.

      Is there such a system?

        I use an ELK panel with the ethernet module to HS integration. This then connects to a DD-WRT based firmware router to create a wireless bridge between the panel and the HS box.

        As far as alarm sensors, I use the wireless Elk module and Caddx wireless sensors.

          What model of caddx do you have? The systems is old but surprisingly nimble/flexible. They do sell wireless modules and you can add wireless sensors, key fob's, freeze sensors, water sensors, etc.

          The DS10a use a different frequency that most alarm systems and I would be surprised to find any other than x10 that would interface with.

          There are many interfaces (plugins) of alarm systems to Homeseer some free some not.

              Yeah! That won't work as far as I know. Time to look at your options.

                  A standard DSC panel will allow up to 32 wireless zones. You do have to wire the keypad and siren but beyond that it's all wireless and the plug-ins for it shouldn't know the difference.
