Polling Zone Bypass in DSC Alarm

Does anyone know how to have Openhab poll the DSC Alarm for the status of the bypass for each zone? I know in the DSC Alarm sample that there is an indication on the keypad leds that at least one of the zones has been bypassed but how do you find out which one?


Hello @Cland_Estine,

The DSC Alarm doesn’t really allow for polling of individual devices. Most of the communication is event based, meaning that the alarm sends a message whenever something happens. The binding receives the message and acts accordingly. There is no message that comes from the alarm to indicate that a specific zone has been bypassed, which makes it hard to determine the status. The only indicator that I know of is the keypad zone bypass LED, but it doesn’t indicate which zone is bypassed.
