    DSC1864 supported?

    I'm now starting to move from HS3 to HS4. I have been using BLDSC for many years under HS3 successfully. It's not clear to me whether BLSecurity supports DSC1864.

    According to the plugin store it does support HS4. https://shop.homeseer.com/products/b...plugin-for-hs4

    Note that HS has built-in support for DSC 1864 if you use the IT-100 (I think). That is what I am doing. The only beef I have with that HS plugin is that it doesn't notify me when a zone is bypassed or unbypassed. And if you use a different interface then it won't work.

      Thanks. BLSecurity supports HS4 but I can't find any info about DSC1864. I know HS has a built-in plugin for DSC but it seems to be for HS3 so I wonder whether this HS plugin works under HS4.

        I use DSC 1864 with HS4, it works with the DSC HS plugin and the Envisalink plugin.

          OK, thanks. I'll try the DSC HS plugin then.

            I use the HS plugin with the IT-100 interface on HS4. It works fine except, as mentioned, that you can't track when a zone is bypassed and unbypassed. I think BLSecurity can do that but I am not sure.

              OK, thanks guys. I'm also using IT-100 so the HS plugin should work. I think I'll test both plugins and then decide which one to use.

                I have an IT-100 and the Envisalink, I prefer the Envisalink because it was much easier to implement and the Envisalink plugin developer (Spud) supports it really well.

                If you are going to stay with the IT-100 route then the BLSecurity would be your best option, there is a bigger community of users that use the plugin to help with any questions you might have along the way.

                  Most, if not all HS3 plugins should work in HS4. Just make sure there is an active community and/or developer for the plugin.

                  The only difference between the DSC 1832 and DSC 1864 is the number of zones it supports. 32 vs 64 zones. You probably won’t find a lot of posts about which DSC board users have as they both integrate exactly the same way. I opted to go with 64 just to make sure I had room for additional zones for motion or glass break sensors.

                    I installed BLSecurity but I couldn't find how to setup e.g. the IT-100 so I went back to BLDSC which found the setup of my DSC1864.
