alarm-server Configuration

Installing

alarm-server requires some python dependencies to run.

pip install paho-mqtt
pip install python-daemon

Configuring the Server

MQTT Server Configuration

  • If your MQTT server is running locally or on the same box as the server listener, you can likely leave the settings as default.
  • If you need to adjust anything, you can do so in alarmserver.conf

Configuring allowed panel addresses

  • Allowed panel addresses should be entered in tab separated format innto /etc/alarmserver/accounts.conf (or wherever you configure this file to be - see alarmserver.conf)
  • Example: 1234 192.168.1.2 where 1234 is the account number you configure in Wintex/On Panel.

Configuring the Alarm Panel

The simplest method to configure the server and panel communication is to use Wintex to configure the ARC settings.

Using Wintex

Disclaimer! It's easy to overwrite configurations, misconfigure or break your panel's current working configuration using Wintex. Please be sure you're confident in using wintex before proceeding - and always remember to take a backup, or at the very least receive all data first!

  • Connect to your Panel
  • Navigate to the Comms page
  • Select the ARCs tab
  • Find an empty ARC slot
  • Enter the IP address and port of your server in the Pri Tel No field in the format ip/port (For example 192.168.1.92/10500)
  • Ensure Connect via IP is checked
  • Save / send current page.

Running the Server

python alarmrx.py
