Hmm, so I could maybe hooked it directly to the alarm and not spend a bunch of money on a adaptor kit.
I bought this one for my alarm: http://www.homesecuritystore.com/p-818-visonic-rs232-kit-adaptor-and-software-interface-for-powermax.aspx
But the one you linked looks interesting, Think I will order that one instead.

It's hard to say.  Does the alarm literature say you need that adapter? The adapter you linked has electronic components on it.  It is hard to say exactly what they are doing since the board has a proprietary connector.  It may be TTL to rs-232 or it may do something else.

Well it seems some people have tried to hook up directly to the port without the serial adapter.
http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=25890

I decided I could just as well get the overpriced adapter, so I already have that one installed, but since I have no computers with a serial port, I'm looking around for some nice solution, and the one you linked looks like a good solution. then I could access the Alarm from both the Almond+ and from the computer.

The literature around this device suggests it's meant as a field technician programming tool.  In order to use a laptop or something to program the alarm system on site.  It looks like it can be done however, with some rigging;

Absolutely, and some people have put a ot of effort into reverse engineering the serial protocol for this Alarm.
On the first page of this thread, 6th reply to this thread, I posted a link to a page that lists some various resources for Vera, and there is a link to the Visonic Alarm and few others, and in there is a link to this Forum.

My plan is to see if I can use this to crate some kind of interface for the Almond+ to communicate with the alarm.

This is going to be fun, when the Almond+ is out there.

Lots to do :)

This is the only post I could find regarding DSC integration. Has there been any support or will there be any support for EVL-3 ?

I have seen some coding (C) done talking via a documented API for the Leviton HAI Omnipro II panel using the Arduino.  (writing a little sketch).

I have seen similiar with OpenWRT stuff but compiling it on another machine then just running the stuff on OpenWRT.

The above noted the support would probably come from some Almond + person familiar with the DSC API (guessing there is one there somewhere) and be able to talk to the DSC via a serial port or network connection.

Any progress on this aspect ? I would love to integrate home alarm to Almond + either through Ad2usb or envisalink evl3.
