Guardall

From HSYCO
Jump to: navigation, search

Guardall QX32i, PX80 and PX500 are multi-area security systems. The integration with HSYCO can be accomplished via direct control through the RS-232 port on the panel. The I/O Server supports QX32i, PX80 and PX500 Guardall units with software version 4.33.

Communication

Employ a female-female RS-232 crossed cable to connect the panel directly to HSYCO or to an Ethernet/RS-232 gateway. The cable must follow this pinout diagram:

2 ↔ 3
3 ↔ 2
5 ↔ 5
7 ↔ 8
8 ↔ 7

RS-232 parameters:

Baud rate 9600
Data bits 8
Stop bit 1
Parity none
Flow control none

It is also possible to communicate with the Guardall control panel without a full RTS/CTS flow control, but simply asserting (+3 to +15V) the CTS line (pin 8) of the Guardall serial port, and ignoring its RTS line (pin 7).

Guardall Configuration

You must configure the unit to enable serial communication even if the system is armed. Digit the technician code on the keypad and select menu entry "99" (Total Configuration), then select entry “10” (Communication) and make sure that the serial connection is enabled when the system is armed (on).

Moreover, it is necessary to enable the required features to be available remotely. To this end, from the technician’s menu, select again menu entry “99”, then “12”. Here enter the number 1 and modify the settings accordingly to your requirements.

HSYCO Configuration

Add a Guardall I/O Server in the I/O Servers section of the Settings and set its parameters:

Communication

  • Comm ID: select the comm port connected to the panel.

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.

Options

ID Default Values Description
gui true true enable support for the UI object, UISET actions and USER commands
false disable UI support
startupevents false true generate IO events also during the driver’s start-up phase
false start generating events only after HSYCO is aligned with the current status of the system
logsize 20 n ≥ 0 the number of log lines to display in the UI object
arm true true allow groups arming
false deny groups arming
disarm true true allow groups disarming
false deny groups disarming
fastpolling false true perform a faster polling, required for big installations
false normal polling performed
key 00000000 <auth_key> the 8-digits authentication key set in the panel's configuration

guardall.ini

The guardall.ini file is a specific configuration file located in the root directory. Here you can define the names of the groups so that they will be automatically added to the user interface. Add a new line for each group using this format:

<io_server_id>.group.<n> = <name>

For instance:

guard.group.1 = Kitchen
guard.group.2 = Living room

Log Files

If a Guardall anti-intrusion unit is connected to HSYCO, the security.log file will be written in the same directories as the daily log files.

This file is never overwritten or deleted from HSYCO SERVER.
