I'm going to have to do a little more research on the EOL's or give a call to ELK directly to see what they think. I have some motion detectors on order that I want to connect as well...so I'm curious if I'll run into the same issues with them.
I do use the serial port for programming ala ELK-RP and also communication from my own company developed software that we offer to dealers and direct to consumers. Once programmed via Elk-RP, we can read in all the data and display it in a nice user friendly interface like you see above. We found many many years ago, all these companies were offering their own user interfaces; MainLobby, ties them altogether under a single unified interface making it much more user friendly. So you get access to security, cameras, video/audio switching, whole house distribution, lighting, thermostats, irrigation, energy monitoring, xm radio, etc. I don't want to turn this into an infomercial so I'll stop there. But I'm happy to answer any questions you have.
The hardware backend is the Cinemar MLS-3000.
