    Interlogix Door Sensor (TX-1012-01-1) compatible w/ Elk

    I have an Interlogic door sensor (GE part # 60-688-95) that I cannot enroll in the Elk. I have other GE (either CADDX or Interlogic) sensors that have been going great and easy to setup. I have an M1XRF2G and it states this sensor should work. On the side there is what I think is the TX ID...

    Moving from HAI OmniStat to Aprilaire 8800 on Elk M1

    Background: 15 years ago we got 9 HAI OmniStat (1st-gen) thermostats, connected to an OmniPro II controller. The OmniPro II has since been replaced by an Elk M1. The thermostats have been slowly dying one by one (failing to turn the heating/cooling on and off correctly) and now that we are down...

    Question about NC vs NO door sensor

    The GRI RB-02 roller ball sensor can be be bought in a NC configuration, which I always thought was best for entry/exit doors, windows, etc. The problem is that they seem to be in very short supply, e.g., 6 to 7 week lead time. GRI also manufactures a DS-01T roller ball sensor (with wire...

    Rule not working as expected

    I'm bench testing some rules for an overhead garage door in an attached garage. The idea is that I want to have "as long as it takes" to back out of the garage and close the overhead door without causing an alarm. The zone is defined as "Burglar Entry/Exit 2" and "bypassable". It is defined as...

    M1XEP power consumptions

    The Elk current draw spreadsheet shows the M1XEP draws 330 mA, but it also has in the notes column "Power from P1216 Power Supply (included with M1XEP)". But when I put "1" in the quantity column, it adds 330 mA to the total. I always powered the M1XEP with the included wall wart, so I assumed...

    Was Elk RMS discontinued?

    I'm dusting off an M1G system that's been on the shelf since 2016. I've been able to update the firmware for the M1G and the XEP, install the latest version of RP2, and connected a new M1XRFTWM. Everything is working great. I have a license code for the Elk RMS software that I purchased back in...

    ELK M1XEP major troubles - no longer responding

    I am nearly two weeks into my migration from a Vista 20P panel to a new (to me) ELK M1 Gold system and I have hit a major block and could really use some help. I had no issues connecting up the M1XEP to the system and have been using it for nearly two weeks. I recently purchased the Ekeypad Pro...
