Looking for a bit of technical assistance on configuring this to work correctly,

 

I'll start with that i'm an electrician and have a reasonable working knowledge and quite computer literate.

 

 

 

Anyway got an AAP Elite S alarm panel, and purchased an IP module for it along with the smartphone app.

 

Can arm/disarm/view events from the smartphone app, but none of the push notifications come thru.

 

I'm looking for a bit of technical help in figuring out what is wrong.

Can't help with the query, sorry, but I'm quite keen on a similar model for our place. I'll say I'm not an electrician and so would be getting someone to install it (if you're in Welly...) But any chance of posting a review / your general thoughts / would (not?) recommend once you've got it running?

Generally AAP has been pretty good, it's just fine tuning the small things like the push notifications which seem like they should be straight forward to do, but IRL arn't

Maybe it's like to paradox alatms in that push notifications only work when you sign up to their cloud device (hopefully free).

As a cheap and cheerful solution, I use boxcar as with boxcar they give you an email address, so I've just set up my boxcar account as a recipient from the alarm. Boxcar then handles all the push notifications.

AAP provide the push service as part of their paid app, all of which I have purchased, just trying to get the settings right so the notifications coming thru.

 

 

 

That's why I'm after some one with a bit of experience with AAP and the IP module, they may have already been thru this and no exactly where to look.

I've also haven't noticed a single push notification like the OP, however have the same module configured for reporting to an Alarm monitoring Co. Took a while to get the timer settings right (remote end had an agressive firewall that blacklisted the connection attempts), but now seems to be working ok (~ 2 months so far). My monitoring co. are definately getting the IP notifications.

I must admit is a bit marginal to get the module, or just upgrade your panel to a newer, natively IP capable one.

Can recommend Mainline Electrical if you need a WN based installer.

Been doing that via email, but it's been a slow process
