If you have a dsc alarm that was installed in new build in the past 15-20 years in the GTA this might work for you. A lot of these alarms was installed by the same company. I was able to find the installer code.

I now have the alarm call me on my cell if it is tripped and added a keypad with wireless receiver. I can now add wireless sensors (also wired ones).

Has anyone set this up with SmartThings ? Which custom handler did you use? Once set up can current sensors (motion,) trigger actions ie lights?

Could you tell me what kind of wireless keypad you have and how to connect to your cell?

You need the installer code for your alarm to do this. You have to program the alarm to use your landlines to call your cell number (instructions are in the manual for your alarm panel). I installed the rfk5500 keypad (simple swap with old keypad) and then bought the compatible wireless sensors. Wireless sensors were easy to install (follow manual).

With envisalink, can I arm my system automatically at 9 PM every night and unarm automatically at 7:00 am ?

What about with homebridge ?

Thanks

Does it really make sense to retrofit old ugly keypad for over hundred bucks? I got the Ring bundle with nice panel for not much more.

Yes but only with homebridge, since other services will require code to disarm.

I have a Windows 10 server running 24/7 for Plex. I can install homebridge on it, add the envisalink plugin and schedule auto arm auto disarm ?

Ya, but note homebridge isn’t perfect, so if the connection somehow is lost those things wont happen. I suggest arming it with amazon echo using a rule and then disarming it with homebridge HomeKit automation.

My house came with this old system and the previous owner did not provide me the master code. The alarm company they used was willing to remove the installer lock-out code for $50-$100 so instead of handing over the ransom to release the alarm panel, I found out how to short the EEPROM and restore the panel back to factory defaults. I don't know why the EnvisaLink 4 is not compatible with these older panels.
Looks like I have this exact same system in my home. Is there anything similar to Eyez-On Envisalink 4 that is compatible with the DSC PC1500 panel with LED615 keypad to make it smart?

I have the Envisalink 3, is there any advantage in upgrading to the 4?
Don't worry about how much you SPEND , it's how much you SAVE that matters.

I was lucky. I managed to return my Hub6 to Home Depot this morning after sitting unopened for just over a year. Got it when they had the free Google Nest Hub promotion. Never installed it due to house moving delays. Will the Envisalink 4 end up the same way?

I love my Envisalink. Been using it for many years. Is handy especially i can remotely disable my alarm as sometimes it gets tripped for various reasons and I can disable it remotely. I still uses a traditional alarm monitoring company that my alarm panel dials out via 3G connection. My alarm has duo redundancy, wireless and the internet connection.

So I already had the connect2go version of the module and just ended my central monitoring contract and was able to register the same module with EyezON for free (and I set up the zones and contacts) and I have the iOS app. I read a lot of posts here on people having this work with HomeKit for notifications and arming/disarming. I don’t have Homebridge (nor know what it is *insert Andy too afraid to ask meme*). Would someone mind PMing me to let me know how to get this to work.

Nothing except you need to go into the panel configuration and remove the "keypad" object that the Envisalink module shows up as.

I am not sure myself and my panel is still wired with a POTS (plain old telephone service) line. I tried to reprogram my panel to dial my cell phone number instead of communicating to a monitoring station but it didn't work because PC1550 boards was not designed to dial a cell phone number. I would have to replace the PC1550 board with a PC1565 board to get the "residential dial" cell phone feature.

There is basically no difference. No need to update.
