  • Napco Plug-in choking on Carbon Monoxide Detector

    Plugin Version=3.0.0.5

    I have a Gemini 3200 with a very new EEPROM; it is the EEPROM that works with the Napco iBridge ethernet / zwave unit.

    Communication seems OK up until my 13th zone which is one of my Carbon Monoxide detectors:

    So based on your log, it appears that newer EEPROM on P3200 panels that are iBridge compatible may work with this plugin, at least in some capacity. I have to assume that much of the protocol implemented by the GEM-AUTOMATION EEPROM must be built into this version of the EEPROM - only a guess however.

    Is the CO detector you mention the FW-CO1224 like found at the link below?

      Hi,

      No actually they are Macurco CMS1's.

      I'm guessing maybe since these are not NAPCO products (though they are intended to be hardwired into a control panel) they might not respond to the:

      CMD_ZONE_DESC_LOW command?

        The Napco GEM-AUTOMATION EEPROM is what this plugin was developed to operate with. It is an HS3 port with some improvements over the original Napco plugin for HS2. I can't really comment on non-Napco devices and how the GEM-AUTOMATION or the apparently newer iBridge compatible EEPROM will respond with a non-Napco device. When I have some time to look further at this I may consider getting one of the Napco CO detectors and see if it works or has issues like you are seeing.
