Has anyone figured out how to create a macro send email notification when Alarm is triggered?  Niether AHP Pro nor On-Alert seem to have this option, but there's got to be a way.

Trigger: security sensor (either one by one, or involve UM506/single sensor)
Condition: Arm state
Action: send email (advance)

I was hoping not to have to set a separate macro for each door and window sensor separately.  AHP Pro/OnAlert should have a built-in "Alarm Triggered" condition for macros, but for some odd reason, they didn't think to do this.

There's got to be some simple and clever way around this.  Any other ideas anyone?  :)

If you read my comment again in (), you will see the easy way out ;)

Get a UM506, set it to same HC/LC as your DS7000/SC12A, connect it to a DS10A, install it to AHP-OnAlert = one single macro.

I created a program X10SW that watches the security house code and will send another x10 command on a different house code which AHP could use as a macro trigger
You can find a link to the free X10SW in the thirdparty and add on section!

I'm struggling with this question as well. I have AMP and onalert. I'm trying to find a way to email when a motion sensor is triggered but I can't find the option in simple or advanced view. Does it REQUIRE a home security system as well to operate?

if you require additional info, I'll make a seperate topic of my own. I do not want to hijack this thread.

No, but it does require smartmacros.

Can you give some insight as to how you got this working? I am in the same situation and am having a lot of issues knowing when the alarm was triggered.

To  do what you are asking you simply need BVC. It can detect the All lights on/off command from your console, trigger a false switch, use that false switch to trigger the email macro in AHP.  I've had this for over 1 year now and it works great.  I have my AHP send a text to my smart phone, that way I'll always see or hear the alarm trigger without being dependent on have my email open.

peg-leg; That would work for the DS7000 kits but not the SC1200 console. It does not send the All Lights On and All Units Off.
It sends an On and off to the Security Light Address and the Security Light a Address +1 Unit Code.

The new beta version of X10SW will see signals from a SC1200 as well as the DS7000.
However the only way to get this right now is to sign up as a beta tester @mywebsite

I found this post in a Google search and it was hitting on what I was looking for. I found my answer, so I figured I would add it here.

You don't need the built in Email Alert which supposedly comes with some plugin. I have OnAlert and AHP and don't have this option. Instead, I am using a simple Windows Command macro to send the email. It is much easier than you may think.

Create a new Windows command macro and run sendemail.exe http://caspian.dotconf.net/menu/Software/SendEmail/.
Parameters: -f me@gmail.com -t friend@yahoo.com -s smtp.gmail.com:587 -xu me@gmail.com -xp MY-PASSWORD -u "Test email" -m "Hi buddy, this is a test email."

When the macro runs, a command prompt window will open and shoot off the email all very quickly.... that's it. Email sent!
