This is a very simple project that interfaces my fire alarms that have a single discrete output that is read my a modbus ethernet module from Schneider. It then unses clickatell to send me an sms whenever any of the alarms go off.
This project is probably not useful unless you have the same modbus ethernet gateway as I have.
To install the daemon, please refer to the foreman documentation. The shortcut is
sudo foreman export upstart /etc/init –app firealarm
Be sure to add the line
+start on runlevel +
