I want to have AHP send me a email to tell me that the system is armed.
Have tried to use the SH624 as the trigger in the macro, but have no success so far.
If I click on the macro, it works fine and sends the email message, but will not send the email after the arming procedure.

I have called X10 several times and so far nobody seems to understand or cares to help me ;-(

Please send me the macro steps if you can get this to work.

Thanks,
Chuck

make sure you success login your system via myhouse online, then email will work as description in email config.

I think it's also a bug for email.

Sorry Chuck,
I re-read my rsp and it's out of whack! ;)

For now, I dont think there's 100% way to do that since the DX7000 is not communicate with CM15A.
What I have tried: creat couple macros to turn on/off the light when the ARM command send, and recheck with flags to make sure it's was ARM by receving cmd, but not by accidently turn on that light!

Yet, that's kind of "one-way" only, while the system may not ARM: sensor is open; but the cmd was sent and received.

There're few way to hack out the LED lights...seach it and you will find them. I personally dont like it at this time.

Makes me wonder... if we couldn't utilize a function of the (newer) consoles. The new consoles will light or flash the security (code) light when armed. That code could be used with the CM15A (and running PC) to send an Email.

Now that is an excellent idea!!! Wish my PS561 was one of the newer guys.

That suggestion should work and help a lot of people.

Dave,
Newer console?
I'm interested in your idea...
Could you elaborate it a bit, please?
Thanks,

Could you elaborate it a bit,

The older consoles would/will turn on the security light for less than a minute when armed away using the SH624 remote. But when using the tiny remote... no such light was turned on.

However on the new(er) console: the security light still stays on for a lighted exit (less than a minute) but when using the pocket remote from outside... it will also quickly flash (or blink) the security light (code).

I AHP... I think you should be able to use the security light code as a macro trigger... to send the Email notice you want. No need to use OnAlert.

I hope some smart person can figure out how to do this.. needs to be a lot smarter than me ;-)

Then maybe they will "share" it with  us mortals!

I am sorry. Email sending is in advanced functions when creating a macro.

In the attached image I created a macro.. triggered by A5... this would be (as an example) the security light setting on the DS7000 alarm. The real security light is actually A6. This allows you to remote control your security light (A6) without sending email. But do note: Triggering the alarm will send a flood of emails.

Of course... I didn't create the needed A5 off triggers A6 off macro (required).

I think the real Q here is: when to know the security light trigger (in this case A5) in ARMED state: with all doors/windors confirmed closed.

The console won't arm... (and therefore not flash or turn on he security light) unless the sensors are in a "closed" state (or unless you manually bypass).

Dave,
Perfect! I just tested and it worked. Thanks.
How come I didnt think about that ;)
I made all kind of macros and flags...now, with your tips, I choose the console address as trigger and it worked ;)

You're correct, that address/lights will not go on/off when any sensor open.

Now, I wish that the DIS-ARM command does the same thing, but it not...
