Control4™ & XR150/XR550 Integration

Easily integrate your XR150/XR550 control panel  V171 or greater into Control4 via IP.

The Control4 driver detects the XR150/XR550 panel with Control4's Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) broadcast. When the Control4 Composeer V2.8 or greater sees the XR Panels SDDP broadcast, it asks if you want to integrate the DMP XR Panel that is on your network. This makes the integration seamless, easy to detect, and inexpensive.

Designed to remain generic and flexible, this driver gives dealers greater control over the security system. Arm or disarm your system and receive full zone status. The driver also allows for custom user codes defined inside Composer!

Features

  • 2.8 Alarm Proxy
  • Arm/disarm individual areas
  • Track zone status for each area
  • Define user codes for each area (30 users per area)
  • Set individual areas to bypass/force zones on arm
  • Receive user disarmed events for use in Control4 programming:
    • User 1 Disarmed - Turn lights on in User 1's office

DRIVER OVERVIEW
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This driver integrates a DMP XR550 or XR150 Security Panel into your Control4 project. Composer version 2.8 or greater is required for this driver. Please follow the setup below to use this driver with the panel. The driver is limited to a maximum of 8 areas, but is unlimited to the number of zones and outputs.

**NOTE: The keypad is featured with a 6 character buffer limit that is cleared after 20 seconds of inactivity. This is intended for arming and disarming functionality. If the keypad is empty and a user tries to arm or disarm the system, a keypad will pop up requesting a code. **

DMP HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE SETUP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A DMP installer is recommended for this part of the setup.

Physical wiring and configuration of the panel is required for operation as well as configuration through the Remote Link software for setting up Areas, Zones, Outputs, and other panel information. 

For real-time feedback for area status, zone status, and output status, configuration for the Entré Connection must be done as well as enabling real-time status for zones and outputs.

For emergency setup, outputs must be assigned to fire, medical, panic, and police.


COMPOSER SETUP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Add the DMP Security Panel driver to the project.

2. Enter the security panel’s network address in the Connections tab.

3. Set the Account Number and the Remote Key in the properties tab. For
details on those properties, see documentation below.

4 At this point, the panel should be connected and authenticated. If the driver has not
already gotten the information from the panel, click on the read from panel button to
retrieve the panel configuration. This retrieval includes Areas, Zones, System Info, Outputs, 
User Codes, and Profiles. 

5. After successfully reading from the panel, if the panel had any initial zones or outputs, they will be 
created in the connections tab for you. If any zones or outputs are added to the panel at any time after, 
just click the read from panel button again to retrieve those updates.

6. Bind up any connections and then refresh navigators.
