Hi,
I already knew this product, but they use the EDP protocol, instead of the Flexc protocol. But I need a bidirectional communication, and I think that the EDP protocol is only to report, or I’m wrong?

Hi David,

you are correct: we are using the EDP protocol.

However, this is a full bidirectional protocol. This means that we process panel events and states an can publish them on KNX (or Modbus/BACnet/...)
But we also take in KNX write (and req) telegrams to issue commands inside the SPC panel. For example you can unlock a door or arm an area.
Inside the SPC configuration, you can fully configure what commands you whish to expose on the KNX side and which you want to keep purely inside the panel for safety reasons

We are also aware of the Flex protocol and we have regular direct contact with the SPC product development team in Ireland. Today, there is no plan on the SPC side to stop support for EDP given the importance of the current use of that protocol.
Thanks to our good contacts and Vanderbilt's acceptance of our development quality, we are, with the SPCway, an official technology partner of Vanderbilt. We regularly do tradeshows together. Most recently our products were showcased by Vanderbilt on the Dubai security fair in January.

I hope this clarifies your concerns

Don't ask what we can do in KNX but wonder what we can't - www.KNXlogic.eu
