I am a newbie, I love my Elk M1 Gold and my Vera, I want to use the Elk to trigger a scene that turns off the lights when we set the alarm. I called my alarm guy who confirmed I have the M1XEP interface, he said I should be able to install the plugin using the IP address 192.168.1.251. Port 2601. I successfully installed the plugin and I followed the instructions putting the IP address as 192.168.1.251:2601. Then I saved and restarted the Lua engine, it says “Elk Alarm Panel : starting up…”
but then I get the following error “Elk Alarm Panel.Can’t Detect Device”. After reading the forum, I believed that the interface needed to be re-started, I had my alarm guy log in and restart it. That did not work. Any ideas?
BTW… I don’t know if this will make any sense but I do not have the software (except on my phone) to program the Elk. That is the reason why I use my alarm guy. Not sure if this is a software package I have to buy or what. I bought my home with the Elk already installed.
