    Default Elk Plug-In Enhancements

    Now that cold days are beginning to make for more time being spent indoors, I am working on what needs to be done to the Elk Plug-In. Below are a few things that come to mind. If anyone has any other thoughts/suggestions please let me know.

    Moving non-alarm zones to a new device type - I have several motion sensors that I use for lighting control, and I know a couple of people using inputs for other non-security related tasks. In the Elk I have programmed these as Non-Alarm inputs. I am considering removing them from the Security\Zone device type to another device type.

    Support for outputs above 64 - The Elk does not allow for outputs above 64 to have names, the plug-in only shows devices that have names associated with them. Outputs above 64 can be used as virtual outputs, since they do not show up in the plug-in I am now considering a method to allow only the outputs desired instead of all above 64.

    I agree on the non secure zones... would be nice nice to have them included in the same device path as the secure ones.
