I am trying to figure out where to find out how much time is left in the countdowns on my M1 and cant seem to find it.  When you arm the system, there is a configurable countdown timer until the system is armed so you have time to leave the house before it is set.  Similarly, there is a countdown timer from the time the alarm is triggered to the time the alarm sounds so you have time to get in and disarm the alarm.  

 

Is there somewhere in the object model I can see these timers?  I'm hoping to add some announcements to my whole house audio system as I only have 1 elk speaker and it is not audible everywhere.  It would make sense for me to utilize the existing speakers I have rather than buying a bunch more Elk speakers.  

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks in advance.

Entry and exit delays are set in the "AREAS" settings of elkrp2 or the keypad.

I know where to set them in the Elk.  I'm wanting to pull the remaining time in them into Premise when they are triggered.

Sorry I don't know Premise.

 

EDIT - I didn't notice that this question was posted in the Premise forum - DUH.

I know very little about Premise, but I have the impression that those of you who use it must have a bit of familiarity with coding.  So.....

 

Check out the M1 232 ASCII Protocol Interface Specification, which is available on the Elk website (though you will probably need to log in) or PM me with your email.  In particular, it looks like the Arming Status Request described in Section 4.2.10 MIGHT return the information you need (See Section 4.2.11) and then you could figure out a way to port the relevant data (if, in fact, it is there) into Premise.

 

Good luck!

Attached is the data a 4.2.10 request returns, and you can see that it returns an exit time of 9 seconds in this example.
