Hi,
I have a comofort panel which must be about 18 years old now and still going strong. I presume its a comfort 1, not sure.
Any how's I wish to add a remote to arm / disarm the unit and if I recall correctly when I installed it there was an option to add a key switch arm/disarm.
I'm presuming I could link it this but is there any info anywhere about adding the key switch and do I need to go into the programming of he unit?

Thanks for your help

Connect the key switch to any zone and program it as Switch Nornally Open Zone Type
Assign one of the default responses
Momentary switch Keyarm/Disarm to Away mode

If SecurityMode = SecurityOff Then
    If AlarmState < Alert Then
        KeyswitchArm NightMode
    End If
Else
    KeyswitchArm SecurityOff
End If

Momentary switch Keyarm/Disarm to Away mode

If SecurityMode = SecurityOff And AlarmState < Alert Then
    KeyswitchArm AwayMode
Else
    KeyswitchArm SecurityOff
End If

Hi SlyChiu,
I have just programmed the comfort with this and when I try shorting the zone 11 and common I get the Please exit and countdown but if I don't exit it goes back into security off.
How could I have it so that when using the keypad I need to exit but if using the key switch I don't need to exit and it still arms?

Regards
Dave

See the different ways of arming to Away Mode here http://www.comfortforums.com/forum125/2367.html


If you want to arm to away mode without having to exit, use the action "Auto arm Away" instead of "Key switch arm away mode"
