UCM/CBUS 5.203 (Beta) firmware allows the Security Armed Mode to be sent to Cbus when Comfort is armed, with values 01 = Away, 02 = Night, 03 = Day, 02= vacation. Previous UCM/Cbus firmware sent either 01 (armed) irrespective of what mode Comfort is armed to.

However C-Bus devices report 01 = Fully Armed, 02 = Partially armed, 03 , 04 = Armed to Special Mode.

The attached .cbf file can be used to upgrade UCM/Cbus firmware via UCM05, UCM/232, UCM/USB or UCM/Ethernet

Note: UCM/Cbus 5.203 does not work with new Cbus SIM Daughterboard with ST7 micro
