I'd like to be able to detect the system being armed through the iphone app (UCM). What's the best way to-do this?

The reason is that I need to use AutoArm to force arming due to final exit not always being done.

thanks,

steve

I am not sure what you mean

When you use Auto-arm, it will arm and bypass all open zones. How is it not always done?

If the system is arned, the armed state is shown on the Comfort app
If the system is being armed locally there is an exit timer that starts countdown

Hi,

At the moment, my KeyArmAway response calls KeyswitchArm which will not arm unless a final exit zone is triggered.

If I'm outside and via the iphone app try to arm it fails due to no final exit zone being triggered.

Perhaps I should be arming differently?

thanks,

If you are outside you should connect by "Use Internet" option
Enter the public IP address in the Internet IP

When connected by Internet Comfort wiill auto-arm. If connect by LAN, it will Key arm ie need exit

Thanks, I now understand the difference between LAN and internet with this app!
