    I’m watching the RS-232 protocol sequence when arming my Elk M1 Gold in away mode with an exit delay. All looks well except for the bolded line below, which the protocol doc describes as Reply – Arming Status Report, for area 1: Armed Stay, Armed Fully. But…it’s not armed fully. It’s armed with a delay as indicated in the messages that follow. Then there’s another armed fully message a minute later which is correct.

    Is this a known problem? Is there any way to prevent it? I’d prefer not to have to debounce bad input data in my software…

    My panel has hardware version 0.13, firmware version 5.3.10. I’m communicating via an M1XEP.

    Here’s the sequence. At 10:03:01, my software sends “0Da1100xxxx00xx” (code and checksum censored) and immediately receives:

    17IC00000000000000101007A
    1CLD1173001110020204000622005B
    1EAS000000001111111100000000000E
    0CAM000000007F
    1EAS100000004111111100000000000A
    0CAM000000007F
    …many ZC lines…
    0FEE10060180100DF
    1EAS1000000031111111000000003BF6
    0CAM000000007F

    at 10:03:09, a periodic M1XEP test

    16XK0703106040222000007B
    16XK37031060402220000078

    at 10:04:00, it full arms:

    1EAS100000004111111100000000000A
    0CAM000000007F
    …many ZC lines…

    The first “AS” string when the arm command is processed has the Area 1 as Armed Away and Armed Fully.

    But…the M1G quickly sends out the next “AS” string with Area 1 as “Armed Away” and “Armed With Exit Timer Working”. The “3B” is the exit timer, that value 3B hex equals 59 seconds.

    Each second during the exit timer countdown you should see a new “AS” string with the exit timer decrementing

    I see that, but why? It’s inaccurate to say it’s armed fully when the exit timer hasn’t finished.

    I don’t. I quoted what was sent (minus the ZC lines and my arming code/its checksum).
