This flow allows integration with ESPA 4.4.4 systems
A flow using an Autronica fire panel via ESPA 4.4.4
Import the flow
Import the ESPA_flow.txt file below and import into your flow editor.
Use the link below if you are unsure how to do this.
Setup the flow
Double click the first node marked “Serial in”, and configure the node by pressing the button in the top right of the node.
You will see the below image, and you will need to change the Baud Rate, Data Bits, Parity and Stop Bits to your devices requirement.
For ESPA 4.4.4 this is typically 1200,7,E,1
We can also check if the Heartbeat back to the ESPA device fails by setting the trigger node, as seen below.
If needed only change, the following.
- The timer which is set at 15 seconds in the example above, ie if we do not recieve a message from the ESPA device within 15 seconds then output a message.
- The message that is passed on is set in the field that says “Lost connection to the fire alarm”. Change this to your preference.
The last part to set is the radio text message out nodes. Double click the nodes, and set wether a group or private message, and the group/radio ID to send the message to.
