How is ELK Integration Established and What is Supported

Below are steps for the ELK integration:

Program your ELK controller(s) to send events automatically to the host:

  1. Enter the Installer Programming mode: Press "ELK" key + 9 (menu 9) followed by the Right arrow key.
  2. Enter the default Installer code of 172839 when prompted.
  3. Display should read: "01 - Bus Module Enrollment"
  4. Use the Up arrow key to scroll to Menu 07 "07 - Global System Definitions".  Note: you can alternately jump straight there by entering 07.
  5. When the display shows Menu 07 then you need to press the Right arrow key to enter this menu.
  6. Us the Up arrow key to scroll to option G35.  This option needs to be set to "Yes".  To do that press the right arrow key to place the cursor under "No" and then press 1 to change it to Yes.
  7. Press "ELK" key to move the cursor back after you changed this option to Yes.
  8. You might want to scroll Up to review the settings for options G36, G37, G38, G39, and G40.  All of these should be set to "Yes".
  9. To exit from the programming mode just press the " * " key.
