What is LRR?
LRR refers to a long-range radio system that sends messages to an external network and can provide several advantages:
- Provides the User ID of the person who triggered the event.
- Provides the ability to receive notification of a PANIC.
- Simplifies detecting of specific alarm events with better granularity.
These messages can be made visible to the AlarmDecoder either using a physical radio device or by enabling emulation in the configuration. Please see How do I enable LRR? for instructions on how to accomplish this.
Once enabled you'll start seeing LRR events on your AlarmDecoder. Here is an example showing User 12 arming and disarming the system:
!LRR:012,1,ARM_STAY !LRR:012,1,ARM_AWAY !LRR:012,1,OPEN !LRR:003,1,BYPASS
Please see the Protocol reference page for more detailed information on LRR messages.
How do I enable LRR?
- Check your panel programming, which is likely field *29.
- If it's already enabled:
- You're already set up for LRR. Proceed to Step #2.
- If not:
- Enable the field on the panel
- If you don't have an LRR device then you'll need to enable emulation on the AlarmDecoder:
- Connect to your AlarmDecoder with a terminal. (PuTTY, screen, etc.)
- Send !
- Go through the configuration prompts and enable support for LRR emulation.
- If it's already enabled:
- Enable any reporting fields you want to receive. The ALARM_* events are always enabled. See the table below for the others.
LRR Event Types Name Program Fields Description ALARM_EXIT_ERROR *59 Indicates an error when a zone is not closed during arming TROUBLE *60 Indicates that a zone is reporting a tamper or failure BYPASS *61 Indicates that a zone has been bypassed ACLOSS *62 Indicates that AC power was lost LOWBAT *63 Low battery indication TEST_CALL *64 Indicates a phone test when in testing mode OPEN *65, requires *66 Indicates that the alarm is disarmed ARM_AWAY *66 Indicates that the system was armed AWAY ARM_STAY *66 Indicates that the system was armed STAY RFLOWBAT *67 Low battery indication for the RF transmitter CANCEL *68 Indicates that the alarm was canceled after second disarm RESTORE *70 Indicates that the alarm was restored TROUBLE_RESTORE *71 Indicates that the trouble event was restored BYPASS_RESTORE *72 Indicates that the bypassed zonew as restored AC_RESTORE *73 Indicates that AC power was restored LOWBAT_RESTORE *74 Indicates that the low battery has been restored RFLOWBAT_RESTORE *75 Indicates that the low battery on the RF transmitter has been restored. TEST_RESTORE *76 Indicates that a zone was restored in testing mode ALARM_PANIC Indicates that there is a panic ALARM_FIRE Indicates that there is a fire ALARM_ENTRY Indicates that there was an entry alarm ALARM_AUX Indicates that an auxiliary alarm type was triggered ALARM_AUDIBLE Indicates that an audible alarm is in progress ALARM_SILENT Indicates that there was a silent alarm ALARM_PERIMETER Indicates that there was a perimeter alarm
