About Central Station
Do you have an Elk M1 Gold, M1EZ8, or Ness M1 Alarm System? Do you want to be able to control it remotely from your phone or PC? If so, keep reading…
Central Station allows you to control a compatible Elk M1 alarm panel via the Elk M1XEP. For this to work, you must also have the M1XEP connecting your alarm panel to your network.
Central Station allows you to Arm / Disarm your alarm, as well as to check the current state of the Alarm as to whether or not is Armed or Disarmed.
Central Station is designed to communicate with the M1XEP on the secure port, therefore encrypting traffic, which by default is port 2601. The application also requires a username / password configured in Elk RP2 in order to make communication as secure as possible. If you only plan on using the application on your local network (inside of your home), then there’s not much setup work required outside of the items mentioned above. If you want to use Central Station away from your home, you must first setup port forwarding on your router to forward all external traffic on port 2601 to your M1XEP.
