Envisalink TPI Parser
ENVISALINK_HOST is the IP or hostname of an Envisalink board with TPI enabled on port 4025
MUST choose '-c' or '-s' ; otherwise there'd be nothing to do!
-c Console output
-s Hostname or IP of syslog server
-o Syslog UDP port (if different than default 514)
-p Syslog message PRI (digits ONLY)
-u Envisalink username (if different than default 'user')
-d Show DISARMED messages (noisy)
-v Verbose settings output to console for debugging
Some miscellaneous notes...
- You MUST choose -c or -s (host-or-ip) - otherwise the script has nothing to do
- The script checks to see if another process on the same system is already connected to TPI, and will SILENTLY exit if there is one
- My panel constantly spits out DISARMED messages every few seconds, so the script ignores anything with the text DISARMED. Use the -d switch to not ignore them
- I use "166" for my syslog PRI (local0 facility, informational messages). You choose what works for your syslog server.
- When using -c, you will only see the PRI if you are simultaneously sending to syslog. Otherwise it will be blank.
- Timestamps are those of the system sending to syslog and are generated by the script
