The Bentel KYO320 is an advanced, multi-area security system integrated HSYCO.

The KYO320 driver in HSYCO supports the integration of more than one KYO320 unit on the same HSYCO SERVER.

The integration with HSYCO can be accomplished through the standard RS-232 port on the KYO320’s motherboard.

This I/O server requires the KYO320 firmware version 2.0x or later (protocol revision 1.06).


Employ a DE-9 (often called DB-9) female-female RS-232 crossed cable to connect the RS-232 KYO port to the serial port on HSYCO SERVER. The cable must follow this pinout diagram:

2 ↔ 3
3 ↔ 2
5 ↔ 5

RS-232 parameters:

Baud rate same as defined on the KYO320 (usually 9600, 38400 or 57600)
Data bits 8
Stop bit 1
Parity even
Flow control none

HSYCO Configuration

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


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

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.


ID Default Values Description
gui true true enable support for the UI object, UISET actions and USER commands
false disable UI support
language system language en language of log and display messages. Supported values are it and en
zoneactivitylog false true logs the open/close status of zones in the log page and security.log files
false disable zone status log
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
code the user code to be used when sending IO commands to the KYO, if code is not explicitly set in the command
logsize 50 n ≥ 0 the number of log lines to display in the UI object
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 KYO system


The bentel.ini file is an optional configuration file located in the main directory (same directory as hsyco.ini or hsyco.jar) and used to define zones and partitions names. If defined, these names will be used instead of the original numbers in the log files and the bentel GUI object.

The bentel.ini is automatically detected at start-up. Changes to this file become effective when the I/O Server is restarted.

For each zone or partition, enter a line formatted as:

<io_server_id>.zone.<n> = <name>
<io_server_id>.area.<n> = <name>

For instance: = kitchen = garage
kyo.area.1 = basement
kyo.area.2 = second floor

User Interface

Bentel Object

The user interface for the Bentel KYO320 multi-area intrusion detection system:

UI Object bentel1.png UI Object bentel2.png UI Object bentel3.png UI Object bentel4.png

The Bentel object is listed in the Project Editor’s new object list only when at least one Bentel 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


(bentel <server id>; <position>)


(bentel serverid; x10y20)

UISET Actions

ID Attribute Set to
areas value the status of all partitions
log0 value the latest entry of the security log for a short period
logs value the latest entries of the security log (as many as specified in hsyco.ini)
zones value the status of all known zones (zones are added to this list as soon as an event is detected on a zone) visible true when the panel is connected to HSYCO, false otherwise
connection.label.offline visible true when the panel is not connected to HSYCO, false otherwise
partition.<n>.label.alarm visible true when partition <n> alarm is active, false otherwise
partition.<n>.label.armed visible true when partition <n> is armed, false otherwise
partition.<n>.label.disarmed visible true when partition <n> is disarmed, false otherwise
partition.<n>.label.away visible true when partition <n> is armed in away mode, false otherwise

Log Files

A permanent record of all the events shown in the log page is saved in a file called security.log in the logs/YYYY directory for the current year.

This file is never overwritten or deleted by HSYCO.
