Has anyone integrated with a DSX Access DSX-1040? I guess it's a security panel. Nothing on the website here, so didn't know if it's easy or hard to integrate with.
Not sure to be honest what exactly what we're trying to control. I couldn't find any protocol, or anything for whatever this piece is. I'm having our installer check into it more as to what they're trying to do . . .
EDIT: Apparently it's a big piece with an integration controller on it . . . I haven't a clue what it is. It's a piece from DSX Access I guess, but they're saying it's also a security controller as well. Any insight would be great.
I basically orginally put a com2 card between the pc and the 20ma loop converter. First Serial port to the pc and the second serial port to the 20ma loop converter. Watch the strings when I used the software on the pc.

Apologizes in advance for the drift in topic:
Next time you are reverse engineering you may want to check out a free tool like Portmon.exe. Mark Russinovich used to give it away (along with a variety of other tools) at sysinternals.com until Microsoft scarfed them up. You can download the freeware at:http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/portmon.mspx
Portmon.exe is a small app that doesn’t require an install but it’s extremely powerful. You can hook up a serial device to your PC in standard fashion, run the serial device manufacturer software, and then watch Portmon log all incoming and outgoing activity.
I assume by your posts that you are an AMX employee. Is that true? The few AMXers that post hear normally identify themselves as such in their profile but I see no indication in yours. Except of course for your AMXJeff screen name.
I for one think it’s great when AMX chimes in on the board and you’ve been ringing the bell quite frequently the last several months. Thanks to you and the rest of the AMXers on the forum for the insight and contributions.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread...
Off topic: how do I become an AMXer? I wanna be AMXjay LOL
