Hi, I can't download the file, it says network error. Could you please check.

@Alejandro I don't know. I wrote this plugin is for HC2 only. Why? Because I do not know the limitations of a HCL and the specs for HCL. I only have a HC2. For this plugin to work, you must be able to paste in ".lua" code in a VD or import the ".vfib". Then when starting, sub devices will be auto created and configured along with a few global and predef variables. If that is possible I am afraid you have to ask somebody else with HCL knowledge. Or just test...

Awesome VD adds a lot of functionality without the additional cost of sensors and incredible support from the developer.

The DSC solution is very reliable and works excellently. I'm not a developer and found it easy to setup. The setup instructions are clear and well documented and the setup does a lot of the work for you which simplifies the setup. A superb piece of software that turned an old DSC alarm into a "Smart Alarm" system that I can now control from my HC2. Well done and thank you Peo
