The Tecnoalarm TP16-256, TP8-64BUS, TP8-96VIDEO, TP8-96GSM, TP16-512GSM, TP8-88 and TP20-440 are advanced, multi-area security systems integrated with a variety of wired and wireless sensors.

The TECNO OUT driver in HSYCO supports the integration of more than one TP unit within the same HSYCO interface.

The integration with HSYCO can be accomplished with a TCP/IP network connection.

HSYCO Configuration

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


  • IP Address: the Tecnoalarm panel address
  • IP Port: TCP/IP port enabled on the TECNO OUT.

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.

Note The code and model parameters in Options are actually mandatory. The I/O Server cannot start without these parameters.


ID Default Values Description
code code the user code that the driver uses when sending commands to the Tecnoalarm system. It must be a valid user code, or the MASTER code when using the TP8-64BUS
model string the system’s model. Use one of the following values: TP16-256, TP8-64BUS, TP8-96VIDEO, TP8-96GSM, TP16-512GSM, TP8-88, TP8-88P, TP20-440
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
gui true true enable support of the tecnoalarm Web interface object
false disable support of the tecnoalarm Web interface object
userlogs false true generates logs that can be viewed with the userlist object, and can be selected to generate user events
false logs for userlist objects disabled. Normal text logs are generated even when this option is false
logsize 50 n ≥ 0 the number of log events shown in the tecnoalarm Web object. Set to 0 to hide the log in the tecnoalarm object
pass string the passphrase used to encrypt the TCP/IP traffic. If the Tecnoalarm system doesn’t support the passphrase, you should omit this parameter
polltime 1000 n ≥ 0 the data polling interval, in milliseconds. Shorter time improve the response of the system, but increase the load on the CPU of both HSYCO and the Tecnoalarm system

User Interface

Tecnoalarm Object

The user interface for the Tecnoalarm multi-area intrusion detection system:

UI Object tecnoalarm.png

The Tecnoalarm object is listed in the Project Editor’s new object list only when at least one Tecnoalarm I/O Server is defined.


  • server id: the server ID. Supports Redirect variables
  • position: the object's position. Use the pixels or rows and columns coordinates format


(tecnoalarm <server id>; <position>)


(tecnoalarm serverid; x10y20)

Release Notes


  • adds support for TP8-88P


  • added support for TP20-440


  • output.N command data point not working
  • fixed a bug that caused HSYCO to crash when the code and/or model mandatory parameters were not defined
  • user codes starting with one or more zeroes didn't work
  • fixed a bug that could prevent reading of the zones status of the TP 8-88 panel


  • added support for TP8-88
  • Tecnoalarm Tecno Out driver converted to I/O Server
  • Java API write command methods are now obsolete and deprecated, replaced by IO write commands

  • new option userlogs. Used to create (userlist) clickable logs


  • Tecno Out: workaround to address a performance issue on Tecno Out introduced with firmware 1.2.07


  • full integration within HSYCO 2.9.0
