In South Africa, we link our alarms to a central control room, being our paid for armed response company.
Our current alarms send this via a radio link.
I have spoken with my armed response company and they have to have the radio, not an SMS, Not an Email etc…
How can this be added to a Sonoff system?
For example the Ajax smart alarm has this ability with a add on VHF unit.
sonoff cannot be compared to a professional alarm system. if you want security, you should go for a real alarm system. ajax or honeywell galaxy
I think someone has to make a dedicated radio capture/transmitter for your alarm system, to convert the signal and integrated it to eWeLink system.
Yes, that’s exactly what I need…any boffs out there that could make it? I’m not that technically capable.
you can use an iristouch 220ng. I use this for my honeywell alarm system. the iristouch has 4 programmable inputs and also 3 outputs. you can use a trigger as an input switch on the iristouch. (put a relay in between)
I spoke with a technical specialist @ ADT security.
All he says, in order for the usual radio link to be triggered is a 5v pulse to either 1 of 3 communication ports on the radio transmitter.
I’ve put together 2 X SV boards (independant signal out for Alarm in Alarm and Panic Alarm) in a box and a test eWelink account set up with both SV cards, set on itching, as he says the trigger need not be longer than 1.5 seconds…
Is that not a better solution?
The IRIS is R20 000.
This is potentially a R500 solution.
I’ll revert back after he’s tested today or tomorrow.
