AlarmDecoder reports non-existent restore/fault events

Postby dssinger » Wed Aug 26, 2020 2:04 pm

If I have several doors/windows open (6 is enough; I'm not sure about the lower limit) and a motion detector fires, AlarmDecoder reports a series of "restore/fault" events for every open door or window. Here's an example (I've replaced serial numbers for my sensors with the zone number for security):



Code: Select all
sqlite> select * from event_log where timestamp >= '2020-08-25 05:43:34' and timestamp <= '2020-08-25 05:44:02';

The log from the WebApp shows RFX events for windows which were open the whole time (I've sorted it earliest-to-latest):

How can I help debug this?

Please send your version and configuration settings via a 'C' and 'V' commands.

Here you are:

Code: Select all
CONFIG>MODE=A&CONFIGBITS=ff00&ADDRESS=18&LRR=N&COM=N&EXP=NNNNN&REL=NNNN&MASK=ffffffff&DEDUPLICATE=Y
!Reading configuration.
!UART init.
!VER:ffffffff,V2.2a.8.9b-306,TX;RX;SM;VZ;RF;ZX;RE;AU;3X;CG;DD;MF;L2;KE;M2;CB;DS;ER;CR


BTW, the same thing happened with the old AD2PI but I didn't get around to reporting it.

Thanks.

Interesting. I wish I could see the raw messages but I think I understand what you are seeing. Not sure how this is happening though since I dont think the logs have enough data. Please send me the link to the code base that you are running and I will review the code that is tracking zones.

If you can get me a raw log from the AD2* that would help me figure out how we got from A to B.

It's the most current Buster-based download: http://www.alarmdecoder.com/downloads/p ... 90710B.ZIP

I updated it with the current changes from GitHub.

Is a ser2sock capture good enough for the debugging, or do you need something even closer to the metal?

I need to wait until it's not too hot and not too polluted to open the windows and run the test, but it looks plausible for tonight.

Ser2sock is perfect! It shows me raw data then I will overlay that as best I can (no timestamps) with your database journel of what happend and I can then run each message through the same code on my end and track down what is happening.

I ran the ser2sock capture through a program to add timestamps as I logged the stream and merged the database dump and the capture.

Here's the program (I'm using Python 3.8):
Code: Select all
#!/usr/bin/env python3
import sys
from datetime import datetime

while (l := sys.stdin.readline()):
    sys.stdout.write(f'{datetime.utcnow().strftime("%H:%M:%S")} {l}')
    sys.stdout.flush()


Here's the merged dump and capture - I've replaced the serial number of my devices with their zone number.

I looked at the code in alarmdecoder/zonetracking.py and I wonder if the problem is as simple as not allowing a longer time between sightings of a zone if many are open - it looks like the panel sends out one "Fault" message every four seconds or so, so with 7 or 8 faulted zones, the timer would expire before the zone came back around.

Re: AlarmDecoder reports non-existent restore/fault events

This sounds like the same issue(s).
https://github.com/nutechsoftware/alarmdecoder/pull/53

I reviewed the supplied patch yesterday and was planning on merging it into the 'dev' branch to test. Please switch to the dev branch if you can help me test that would be excellent. I just released a serial driver code improvement that needs testing as well :)

I just switched the webapp and the API to the dev branch and restarted. When I see an update available, I'll take it and try my testing again.

Ok the EXP / ZONE fix is now in dev. I am testing currently and so far nothing is broken :)
