I’ve set up my new Pro panel to replace my Bosch Solution 16i with PIR sensors, strobe and siren, using Hoobs on a Raspberry Pi 4. Works great and I had a blast setting it all up. Excellent work on the plugin, @Mike.
Our Bosch setup had two keypads but we NEVER used them. We only ever armed and disarmed using RF keyfob remotes. A button press triggers a relay connected to a zone marked as a keyswitch to arm or disarm the alarm. The relay and remote device is sold as a gate/door opener and works the same way a garage door opener does, by momentarily opening.
Is it possible to get the same result with Konnected, either out of the box or via the HomeBridge/HOOBS plugin? All mentions of a keyswitch in the Konnected documentation seem to be about interfacing with a legacy system.
I’ve currently got it configured as a Contact Sensor and it displays as open on HomeKit momentarily when the button is pressed.
I can even arm the alarm by setting up an Automation in the Home app (when a sensor is triggered, arm the alarm).
But what I really want is to arm/disarm when pressed. But there doesn’t seem to be any support of conditionals in the Automation setup (eg when the contact opens, if the system is armed then disarm it, else arm it).
Am I going about this the wrong way?
I know that there are other ways to arm/disarm the system, but not everyone in the house has a phone, and the RF remotes are important for WAF.
I’d appreciate any suggestions or thoughts on how I could achieve the desired outcome!
