LRR Support

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:


Please see the Protocol reference page for more detailed information on LRR messages.

How do I enable LRR?

  1. 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:
      1. Enable the field on the panel
      2. If you don't have an LRR device then you'll need to enable emulation on the AlarmDecoder:
        1. Connect to your AlarmDecoder with a terminal. (PuTTY, screen, etc.)
        2. Send !
        3. Go through the configuration prompts and enable support for LRR emulation.
  2. Enable any reporting fields you want to receive. The ALARM_* events are always enabled. See the table below for the others.
