Today I have an EnvisaLink 3 IP device hooked up to my Honeywell hardwired system. It does have an API, but I’m not a programmer, and I don’t quite have the skills to integrate that with ST (yet).
What I’m thinking about doing instead is using a MIMOlite’s wired contact sensor and have it indicate open/close of just one zone I’m really interesting in monitoring in ST. What I can’t understand exactly yet is how I’d wire the MIMOlite to the panel so that the open/close sensor trips while not causing problems with the hardwired system and/or causing false or no alarms.
I would assume that I’d just connect in parallel the MIMOlite to the NC and COM terminals of the zone I’m wanting to monitor? For some reason that doesn’t seem right, so I’m hoping someone here can help me think this through. Any help would be sincerely appreciated!
