I have a new shop going up that is detached from my house. I have no wire running between the house and the shop, but I do have a 802.11 wireless bridge. I think I can use the ELK-M1XRFTWM to add zones for heat detectors and door sensors.
I’d really love to have a keypad, but I don’t see how to connect a keypad wirelessly. I can use the M1 Cloud app on my phone, which could be a stop gap for that. I might even be able to mount a tablet with it running I was ambitious. Is there a way to have a wireless keypad?
I’d like to have a wireless relay so I can open and close the garage door remotely. I don’t see anything that gives me a relay. Is there a product that can do this?
If I can’t get a remote keypad, I have no indication when the system is in alarm (other than M1 Cloud possibly using notifications, which I could miss). I’d like to have some audible indication in the shop that let’s me know the system is in alarm. If I could solve #2, I could probably connect a siren to a power supply. Is there a better solution?
Perhaps the answer for #3 could be the addition of a another wireless relay as in question #2. You’d have it wired up on Output 2 on your Elk M1 Gold as voltage and have it trigger a local relay that is 2 outputs, one drives the local siren and the other is the transmitter to your remote location. That relay would then connect a siren mounted out in the garage. If the alarm is triggered, you’ll have the siren sounding there as well as in the primary location.
