    Hi Guys,

    I have been trying for the past few days to get my Inception alarm system to control CBUS via 5500SHAC.

    I have seen anther post where someone has the "Inner Range Inception" alarm system working via RS232.

    Although the Inception panel also has the functionality to send TCP/IP messages.

    I have FINALLY got it working and thought i would share my finding.

    I have been able to connect the Inception system to the SHAC_CNI, with the below settings.

    Connection type: TCP (Client)
    Port: 10001
    IP Address: 192.168.178.199

    With these setting it is the only way i get the status as "Connected".

    (Not sure if required although i have also added the below to the "C:\Clipsal\C-Gate2\config\access.txt")

    interface 192.168.178.82 operate
    remote 192.168.178.82 operate
    user <username> <password> operate

    Of course I have the correct username and password i just haven't posted them on here.

    My current setup is:

    SHAC_IP:
    192.168.178.199
    Inception_IP:
    192.168.178.82
    5500PCU:
    USB Serial (Used for Diagnostic Utility).

    The Inception system requires "Data Framing" (Refer to the link above for the image).
    - Prefix for Sent Messages:
    - Suffix for Sent Messages:
    - Prefix for Received Messages:
    - Suffix for Received Messages:

    If i set all the above as (empty) the review logs show me a message being received every second.
    Message: \x11

    When i turn a light on from the Diagnostic Utility i get the following (received message) in the review log on the Inception alarm system: \052D380100010193\r\n

    Then I set the framing as;
    - Prefix for Sent Messages: \
    - Suffix for Sent Messages: \r\n
    - Prefix for Received Messages: \
    - Suffix for Received Messages: \r\n

    And I am now receiving and sending the correct commands.
