Result

House Alarm Internet_1
To compile:
config.h – Set your IP/your Email and other options.
Installing
1. Enter Engineering mode and select the option from the menus to “Install RKP” (Install Remote KeyPad).
2. The display will show a K for each keypad the Alarm sees (eg. KKxxx for two keypads).
3. Accept and exit Engineering menu.

Network security
1.Make sure the User and Engineer(Admin)Password on the Aritech Alarm Panel are not the default passwords.
2.Consider having an Alarm Panel password 6 digits long (default is 4 digits long)
You could also change the Port to some random number (default is 8383).

Matters that require attention

Powering the arduino
1. Don’t recommend using the Arduinos built in 9V socket when using the Ethernet adapter or using the Alarm Panels 5V power supply to power the Arduino – things will get hot! The DC-DC adapter specified above is very efficient and provides a very stable 5V without heating up – I apply this 5V to the 5V pin of the Arduino.
