I think with all the verbose comments we have completely missed the potential depth of programming that could be involved here. 2 IP touch screen remotes, 2 RF touch screen remotes, 1 IP base station and 1 MSC processor. Together there is a possibility of numerous IP drivers to be configured, multiple RS232 ports, contact closures, macros with trigger codes and on and on. This isn't even close to a simple installation and should never have been sold online because of that fact alone.
There are no IP drivers to configure in this control system. MX5000 and MRX1 are incompatible with each other. RF triggers sent to the MSC400, WiFi RSS return from local network.
KP4000 > MRX1 > MSC400 to trigger macros.
MX1200 > MSC400 to trigger macros.
You're looking at the potential of what this hardware can do, but only in the context of a certain specification. This equipment can be programmed for some pretty straightforward 1-way control with fancier-than-normal interface design.
There's just a lot of whining about not being able to sell the equipment as well as programming. Again, half of something is better than all of nothing.
