Caddx NetworX Security Panel  (Indigo Plugin)

Overview

Indigo 6 Plugin for Caddx NetworX Series Security System (version 1.3.0)

OVERVIEW

It is a comprehensive protocol implementation of Caddx NX-584 RS-232 Gateway Interface Protocol (April 2000) spec.

This should work with the Caddx NX-584 RS-232 Gateway Interface for the Caddx NX-4, NX-6 and NX-8 but I do not have the hardware to test this. It has only been tested with NX-8e.

The following is a list of supported message transactions:

- Interface Configuration Request/Message (read interface configuration parameters in alarm panel)

- Zone Name Request/Message (read alarm panel configured "Zone Name" if supported by KeyPad (NX-148e only))

- Zone Status Request/Message (read completed status of the request "zone x")

- Zone Sna
