I'm attempting to get a server to recognise when an alarm system has been triggered. The system is running CentOS Linux.
Basically what I am looking for is an interface that will connect via RS232 to the server, and take an input from an alarm panel (detect a certain voltage on a line I guess). The next step would be to find some software that will take this trigger and run some shell scripts for me...
If anyone has any suggestions i'd appreciate them!
