This project aims to provide a method for listening on a serial port and decode incoming messages from a Galaxy security control panel. The messages are transmitted using the SIA DC-03-1990.01 (R2000.11) protocol. The decoded messages are stored in a database (MySQL) or forwarded by email using ssmtp. Besides just listening for messages openGalaxy can also be used to arm/disarm the panel and much more...
This software is still in a testing (beta) phase but has been tested successfully with the following security control panels made by Microtech / Honeywell Security:
- Galaxy 18 (Dutch firmware v1.25) with external RS232 box
- Galaxy 60 (Dutch firmware v1.07) with external RS232 box
- Galaxy G3-520 (Dutch firmware v5.50) (internal RS232)
