Thanks a lot Mark .. this really helps .. I really appreciate your prompt response ..
What is the IT-100 interface? I tried to look at the picture in Homeseer and it seems that items is not independently available.. Is this it? http://www.aartech.ca/it-100-dsc-serial-integration-module-rs232-serial-interface.html
. I really sorry for my ignorance. But what kind of wire do I need to connect this to DSC?
I assume what you mean by monitoring through internet is to arm/disarm/check status over the internet, right? If you open the HS to be accessible over the internet, would you also not be able to access DSC too?
I have sonos too and would love to use it to confirm when some of the commands are completed. The idea to greet a person when he comes in a good one too .. :-)
I was actually planning to be have my phone's wifi to be able to automatically connect to my wireless and it triggers an event to disarm, turn on the lights, etc. Do you know whether that can be done through HSTouch app?
How did you interaface with your movie sound to trigger the lights to be dimmed? Can you tell me what components you used for that?
BTW, I saw you have the USB wave interface and not the Z-wavetroller provided by HS .. is that sufficient?
do you have any rough diagram of how all these components connected? if yes, do you mind sharing it with me .. it would surely help me a lot ..
I know these are too many questions and I will understand if you do not want to spend time answering all of those .. but any help is appreciated as you have so many years of experience on these products and I am sure with your help, I can automate my home very well .. especially since, most of the things you have done is what I was also thinking to do with these components.
Thanks again for your time ..
