    I know

    We can have this thing arm the alarm... right? Problem is knowing if the alarm is engaged or not

    alarms beep when they are armed, or do you want it to send something to your phone to confirm it?

    No, I'd like the alarm to arm automatically when I am not in range. It would have to know when to press the button though.. otherwise it could arm the alarm when I'm coming closer

    set it on the same circuit as the door locks. When you come closer, doors unlock/alarm disarms. when you go away, doors lock/alarm arms.

    The alarm doesn't always arm on the first time. That's why its important to know the status of the alarm.

    oh.

    Is that an issue with RF reception from the alarm remote to the alarm reciever, or is it something else?

    No.. its just my alarm. I can't disarm it and arm it in 10 seconds, it just starts beeping.
    So, we'd also have to monitor alarm activity.

    does it chirp?

    If so, you can patch into the chirp signal and send it as an input to the PIC.

    If it corresponds to the arm pattern, then youre good.

    If after sending the arm signal to the alarm, the output to the PIC box from the alarm doesnt correspond to the "armed chirp" or thers no chirp at all, send the arm signal again. Keep sending untill the "armed" signal is sent to the PIC box.

    Decoding chirp = hard. Sounds like hacking into the flashing LED is easier. No need to decode sounds.

    i didnt mean decode the sound. patch into the signal that is sent to the speaker, and send that as an input into the PIC
