Direct control with data bus or serial port connection

Direct control with data bus or serial port connection

Connecting to data bus or serial port, what does that mean?

The essence of the technology is that the connected Trikdis communicator knows the language of the control panel, it knows how interpret the messages. (This is a one-way communication connection). Like keypads or other peripherals, the communicator also receives and understands the messages sent by the alarm system control panel and the events will be forwarded to the client and / or to remote monitoring station according to the settings.

There are two ways how Trikdis communicators can talk to the alarm system control panels. It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. For example, DSC, Honeywell, CROW, Pyronix, etc. in the case of the Trikdis relay, which also has the operators, must be connected to the data bus. Elsewhere, such as Paradox and Texecom hubs, the serial port (serial port) should be used.

What are the benefits?

  • This is a simpler solution that the regular TIP RING connection
  • It is more reliable
  • Faster to install
  • Offers a wider range of services
  • Communicate faster

Direct control

Direct Control is an even more advanced solution because it in this case the communicator not only receives events from the security system control panel for transmission, but also some of the functions available on the keypad become available, i.e it's a two-way communication.

What are the additional benefits of direct control?

More features, specifically:

  • The whole system or one of the partitions can be armed or can be disarmed using the user code (same as the one used on the keypad)
  • Automatic partition and zone mapping
  • Detecting the status of mapped zones
    Common question, but this does not mean that there is a constant status display in the user app, the zone status information is only available in case of an event)
  • Zone Bypass
  • It is not necessary to connect an OUT from TRIKDIS to the control panel as keyswitch zone for arming and disarming, this is done directly on the data bus or serial port.

How can you use Trikdis devices for Smart functions around your home?

Depending on the device, Trikdis smart communicators and Trikdis smart alarm centers have one or more outputs. These outputs can be used for remote control: gate or garage door opening, heating, watering or lighting control, etc. By adding some sensors to your system, e.g. light, liquid level, temperature sensor, you can achive simple, but useful automatitions around the house or flat. Also you can use the inputs on the communicator as feedback (e.g. open gate or garage door).

Which Trikdis communicators work like above described?

Trikdis offers Radio, Ethernet and a GSM communicators and the most common manufacturer's control panels are supported such as Paradox, DSC, Pyronix, UTC Interlogix (Caddx), Innerrange, Honeywell and Texecom.

* You can learn more about which security control panel models are supported on the product page description. Direct controllable models and highlighted with underline.

Can't find your own system in the list? The E16T communicator can be connected to any other brand control panel with a TIP RING connection.

Can't find your own system in the list? The G16T communicator can be connected to any other brand control panel with a TIP RING connection.

A Trikdis G16 és a G16T 2G, 3G, 4G modemmel is rendelhető. Mivel egységnyi adatkapcsolat díja nagyságrendekkel több mint a vezetékes internet kapcsolaté, ezért a kommunikátorokat további Wifi-s RS485 modullal kiegészítve vagy Ethernetes RS485 modullal kiegészítve mobil adat forgalom csökkenés érhető el a kommunikáció biztonságának növelése mellett.

The Trikdis G16 and G16T are available with 2G, 3G, 4G modems. You can save mobile data cost charges are orders of magnitude higher than wired Internet connection, so the communicators are connected to an additional supplemented with RS485 module with WiFi or with Ethernet RS485 module a reduction in mobile data traffic can be achieved to increase communication security next.

The Trikdis G16 and G16T are also available with 2G, 3G and 4G modems. In addition to the data connection, a wired internet connection can also be established for these communicators (and also for the radio communicators) with  the WiFi W485 module or Ethernet E485 module using. This solution increases communication security and reduces mobile Internet (data connection) traffic. Read more about DUAL PATH solutions from Trikdis.
