Can I program a new Elk M1 Gold straight from the M1XEP
Posted 06 October 2019 - 11:29 AM
Although we've been living in our new home for a few months already, I'm just getting around to installing the Elk M1 Gold.
Is there a way to program this from scratch directly through the M1XEP? None of my computers have an RS232 anymore...
Also, as a side topic: does anyone have experience running ElkRP on a Chromebook?

You can do a great deal of the programming via the M1XEP and RP software. I suspect there may be a few things you can not do via M1XEP, but I can't think of anything right now....I prefer enrolling wireless devices via the keypad, since that way I don't have to make sure I type in the wireless IDs correctly, but that is a preference, not a requirement.....I can't speak to running ElkRP on a Chromebook, as I don't own any.

You can program the complete system via the XEP, including enrolling bus modules. As wmcneil stated, wireless devices are definitely easier from the keypad.
