GE Concord 4 RS232 Automation Module Interface Library and Server

This is a tool to let you interact with your GE Concord 4 alarm panel via the RS232 Automation module.

The goal of this project was to utilize my GE Concord 4 alarm panel with Home Assistant

Following the framework of kk7ds to integrate the nx584 into Home Assistant, and douglasdecouto's work into building the base communication class as part of their integration into the Indigo platform, we now have a working Interlogix/GE Concord 4 Automation Module interface

To install::

sudo pip3 install concord232

The server must be run on a machine with connectivity to the panel, to get started, you must only supply the serial port. In this case I use a USB to Serial adapter

concord232_server --serial /dev/ttyUSB0 

Once that is running, you should be able to do something like this::

 $ concord232_client summary
 | Zone |       Name      | Bypass | Status |
 |  1   |    FRONT DOOR   |   -    | False  |
 |  2   |   GARAGE DOOR   |   -    | False  |
 |  3   |     SLIDING     |   -    | False  |
 |  4   | MOTION DETECTOR |   -    | False  |

Basic arming and disarming

Arm to stay (level 2)

$ concord232_client arm-stay

Arm to away (level 3)

$ concord232_client arm-away


$ concord232_client disarm --master 1234

Arming with options

Both stay (level 2) and away (level 3) alarms can take one of two options: silent arming, or instant arming. Silent arming will not beep while the alarm is setting. Instant arming has no delay. Clearly, this should only be used with away arming if you are already outside.


Arm to stay with no delay

$ concord232_client arm-stay-instant

Arm to away without beeps

$ concord232_client arm-away-silent

Home Assistant

Home Assistant will automatically download and install the pip3 library, but it only utilizes the Client to connect to the server. I used the instructions found here for setting up the server to run automatically at boot time.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
