      I checked with Elk Tech Support and there is no way to get access to the 64 counters using the ASCII Protocol. However, they do allow access to the 20 custom values that can be of type "number", "timer" or "time of day". I'll add access to those 20 custom values.

        Ability to "turn off" the humidity column for thermostats that don't have that sensor.

        Is there any way to figure out if the thermostat has "tripped" and is calling for heat/cold?

        Is there a way to trigger a "Test your connection" event other than on the elk? Something like "There was a power failure, trigger event to have alarm call the central station with a test call"?

          Thanks for checking ultra! the custom values sound like they will do the same thing, so will look forward to that change!

            How about a "Thermostat heat/cold setpoint > Degree" type of plugin event/trigger?

            Would help keep the thermostat within a normal range when the kids decide to heat the place up to 80

              You can do that now. Just use event and if Value of heatsetpoint > 80 then...


              I do that now to monitor changes and also reset the thermostat to whatever.

              Works like a charm

                Is there any way to control lighting directly through the Ultra M1 plug-in? I can control lighting through M1 tasks but that is rather inflexible and roundabout. Specifically, I would like to control Insteon devices (primarily lighting) hooked up to my M1.

                  The support hasn't been added yet. What Insteon device do I need to purchase in order to do this? I already have an Elk M1XSP and tons of Insteon switches and modules.

                    You would need an Elk M1XSP (Serial expander) plus a serial PowerLink like the 2414s (if my memory is working on the smarthome part number)

                    Firmware would need to be upgraded to the Insteon version for the serial expander

                      Using Elk Speakers to anounce homeseer events etc

                      Is there a script or, any other way to take advantage of elk speakers such that event anouncement from homeseer are sent to this speakers.

                      I am not sure if this is possible but if it is, I would like to know how.

                      Thanks.

                        Could anyone let me know if this plugin allows you to send and receive X10 commands via the ELK panels X10 interface ?

                        Also has the ethernet connectivity been implemented ?

                        Thanks..Pete

                          I dont know about the x10 for sure, but it doesnt look like it. I could be wrong though as I dont have a need to use it.

                          As far as the ethernet, yes. Working very well.

                          All I need now is hs.execx10 control of outputs and I am good to go. (hint hint)

                            I tried adding X10 via the Elk M1 panel, but couldn't get it working. Can I add this via a serial port expander (ELK M1XSP)? If so, do you have a part number for the X10 module so I can purchase the part?

                            Yes, ethernet connectivity has been implemented. I have been running it 24 x 7 for about a month without issues.

                              The Elk doesn't have a text to speach engine, but you can create events via the Plug-in to have it speak any of the phrases or works loaded in the Elk M1.
