If you have a device that is not currently supported,
then please send us its communication protocol spec and we'll promptly consider it
Terms used below:
X10 is a technology whereby commands are transmitted to/from light/appliance/sensor modules thru A/C powerlines (using the X10 protocol).
UPB is a technology whereby
commands are transmitted to/from light/appliance/sensor modules thru A/C powerlines
(using the UPB protocol).
Z-Wave is a technology whereby
commands are transmitted to/from light/appliance/sensor modules via radio signals
(using the Z-Wave protocol).
RS232 refers to a standard serial port (referred to as COM1/COM2/etc in Windows).
SNMP is an ethernet protocol.
WiFi is wireless Ethernet.
RF stands for radio-frequency.
Note: SNMP traps are not yet supported in Linux (Windows only).
ECS can read/write the current value of BACNET Accumulators, Analog-Inputs, Analog-Outputs, Analog-Values, Binary-Inputs, Binary-Outputs, Binary-Values, & Integer-Values
(all caller-id modems)
Report: Device reports changes as they occur.
Poll: Inputs must be read (rapid state changes can be missed).
Latched: Device preserves state changes until they are read.
then IR repeaters such as these can be used to amplify the signal and/or route it to another room:
ECS can read/write to any ModBus Holding-Register, Input-Register, Discrete-Input, or Coil
Note: In addition to those below, ECS (itself) can detect video motion via any supported video source.
SNMP I/O is supported directly by ECS (Windows only) and indirectly via the Barionet
Note: SNMP access is not yet supported in Linux (Windows only).
ECS / Microsoft (included with ECS)
Note: We recommend the use of standard/low-cost PCs as touchscreens, as they are
generally less expensive than proprietary products (and can be used for much more).
In addition to the above, the following devices are exclusively supported via OEM versions of ECS (contact us for details):
