    We also have a txt message server running to send sms to customers when jobs are ready to pick up etc so I also inject the alarm messages into it.

    After arming/disarming the system I usually get a text withing 10 seconds. I know when any workers enter or leave the workshop. It also sends email/text on any events,
    This is perfect for me, care to share please? Iím keen to run on my qnap server, and want to make better use of my ness d16x, aux etc. thank you

    Another Ness alarm via Home Assistant user here. My solution to the RS232-WiFi is a Wemos D1 Mini ESP8266 module running ESPlink firmware plus a RS232-TTL module in line.
    HA's Ness addon works fine.

    Anyone know if there is a not too difficult way to connect NessComm over IP though, it would be handy to not need a serial-USB cable for that ?

    sorry to bump a old thread.
    recently trying to use ascii protocol with a d8x v5.8.
    finally managed get the d8x panel to send ascii on arm and disarm.
    but I canít seem to ask the panel for get status command.
    the panel just seems to echo back the command and does not respond.

    there was a mention about enabling free flowing comms serial.
    How do I do that? Was that the P199E?

    im about to connect panel to computer and try nesscomms.
