If you want to get IP module for your alarm system and uses web browser via paradoxmyhome.com to control it, you'd better go for the IP150S module, which ships with V1.40 firmware on it. This module can be used with iParadox app, which gives you all the control over your phone, the only drawback is the lack of push notification, but you can get email notification, which for my case, email push notification is enabled for my Gmail.

 

Otherwise, with the latest firmware V4.0+, you can use Insight Gold app, which is free for the first month and subscription based later on, if you don't mind paying them monthly fee. The advantage is you get push notification and if you buy the web cam, you can view them in the app too.

 

 

 

 

If you have an android phone, I would recommend alarmin from the play store. This gives you basically the same / better features of the insight gold app, without any cost. Note - you have to have <4.0 firmware on your IP150.

 

I've only just found it within the last month and it's really good.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've checked out the Alarmin, very good app! I will have a goal with it. Luckily I have both Android phone and iPhone. At least, the Android one I can get this free app. Thanks a lot. I am thinking make a free iOS app if I can decode the IP150 communication protocol. Apparently, the author of Alarmin app did not give out the source code, even though it is free.

It looks like the author has released the source for the backend of the Alarmin app. 

 

There's an explanation here: https://github.com/Tertiush/Alarmin-Android-App/issues/54

 

And the source here: https://github.com/Tertiush/Alarmin-Android-App/tree/master/Alarmin%20Code

 

The same developer has also implemented some Python based middle-ware' that uses the IP150 module's software port for monitoring and control of the alarm via an MQTT Broker: https://github.com/Tertiush/ParadoxIP150v2

 

Looking at some of the issue threads it seems new versions (v4+?) of the IP150 firmware have locked things down a bit.  There is a post detailing a downgrade process but it's quite involved.  I don't have one of these modules so can't speak from experience.  I was just looking at the options for replacing the analogue dial out that my Paradox panel currently uses.  Although the IP150 module opens up lots of other possibilities my current thinking is it might just be easier to install an ATA.  Ultimately I want to replace my FRITZ!Box 7390 with and UBNT EdgeRouter but I'll miss the ATA ports on the FRITZ!Box.

Yeah I've taken over adding to/maintenance of Tertiush/ParadoxIP150v2 over at https://github.com/psyciknz/ParadoxIP150v2.

But for those with firmware issues there is another project which is able to get around this problem: https://github.com/jpbarraca/pai

I think if you've got an IP module these projects are pretty good.  I run my ParadoxIP150v2 in docker, with the output read by both openhab and homeassistant....where homeassistant thene exposes it to apple home kit.  It works really well, and I find it stable.  I also use the PIR zones for triggering other things (lights etc).

 

If you haven't got an ip module there the jpbarraca/pai did start off as a serial project, so there's that option also....but what I've not really seen (but expect it possible) is for someone to hook a EPS8266 up in serial and pull status off that way.

Thanks for the reply and suggestions David.  I finally got around running some cable through the wall and ceiling from my alarm to an old Raspberry Pi 1B (via a level shifter) that I had gathering dust in my comms cabinet.  I now have PAI  up and running along with mosquitto and am seeing events come streaming through.  The next step is to set up a simple MQTT subscriber that forwards the more significant events through to Slack.  Your idea of using an ESP8266 would certainly make for a nice self contained solution.

Look at mqttwarn. It subscribes to mqtt and sends to email, Twitter slack pushover all sorts of places.

I’ve actually also moved to using pai.

Hello,

 

 

 

I have a paradox Alarm and was looking to get the module, this thread has lots of great information, thanks to all those who have contributed.

 

I wanted to ask, Does the IP150 module now support NEware or Babyware? It says it does on their website but wanted to see if anyone had tried this recently before making and decisions.

I would recommend babyware.

 

but it also depends what panel you are connecting to, the ip150 will work with winload on some panels but not on others.

 

I would think that ne ware would be the same but i haven't tested neware with the ip150
