Programming ELK in ISY to send single alerts when system in armed/alarmed/disarmed

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone!

 

 

I am interested in programming the ISY to send me one notification whenever the status of the ELK changes. ex. If someone arms/disarms or if the ELK goes into alarm.  Having not done any programming in 6+ months, I am hoping to geniuses here can help me out.  

 

I tried this a while back but the status would send non stop notifications. ex. if someone armed the system it would send hundreds of alerts, not just one.  

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  

 

Thanks!

  If it sent you 100's of emails, then you had something in there triggering the program over and over.  The ISY programs for the Elk states only trigger when the state changes.  So something else was triggering.

 

You can also use Elk rules to send messages, but there are more restrictions on length and number of messages.

I haven't done email alerts, but I have done network rules (Pushover) triggered from the Elk armed up state. I've only ever got single notifications per state change.

 

Post your program - maybe there is something that we will see.
