Innnerange Inception Crestron Home Setup Guide

“Simple & Easy Installation
Integrated Security – Access Control”

Web Powered Security

User Experience

Our Innerange is a suite of drivers to allow you to make the most of this powerful Security and Access Controller. The Core Driver is only available in a package along with the Events and Actions Driver ( this is as we dont support Core Events). All the other companion drivers can be used standalone on a system allowing you to use the subsystems of the Inception independantly.

Hardware Configuration

The core and additional drivers connect to the Inception as a standard user. The best practice is to create a user just for the Crestron system and set the web page profile to “REST Web Api User”. Its up to you if you share a single user (recommended) or create a user per driver. The user must be added the relevant permissions for the Areas, Doors, Inputs and Outputs that you wish to control and monitor.

Core Alarm actions require a user pin to be entered and the userassociated with that PIN in Inception
will be the user that performs the action, with their permissions checked and their name logged in
the review event history.

Any control requests of areas, outputs or doors that don’t require a PIN will be performed by
the api user and must have permissions on all deviced.

Adding drivers to the system

Drivers are all located in Security System Type under the manufacturer “Inner Range”

Core Alarm Driver

This is a native Crestron home Security System Driver and only appears on the Home page and not in the room win which the driver is loaded. We suggest you add the core driver and supplementary drivers to a Rack room hidden from the client.

Home Page

The home page tile is the access point for users into the security sytem.

Alarm Areas

  • Area are added dynamically to the system
  • Area Names are pulled in from the Alarm system.
  • Main Arm and Disarm Functions can be controlled directly from this page.

Known Issue:

  • If an area is removed from the alarm it will remain visible until a Crestron Home Reboot.

Area Page

  • The induvidual Area Page shows area status and all available area controls.

Swiping right takes you to the Global System Page

Global Alarm Control

  • Global Status Text
    • Alarm Status
    • Door Command Status
    • Panic Status
    • Licence Status
  • Global Function buttons
    • Lock All Doors
    • Close All Outputs

User Pin

When you first attempt an alarm action you will be prompted to enter your inception user pin.

You can choose to store the pin on the user device by ticking the box.

Once a pin has been saved you will no longer be prompted for a user pin.

Actions and Events (Core Driver)

Security System Types Provide Events based on Alarm States.

However we do not support these events in our Core Driver and instead:

We advise loading and using the Events and Actions provided in our Dedicated Module


(See Below)


Inception Events and Actions

A Seperate extension driver is provided to expose Actions and Events.

This driver must be loaded to your crestron home system ( there is no Extension UI). Once loaded and setup as described here you will see events and Actions allowing you to control your alarm System.

The User account used in the hardware setup should have permissions on all areas you want to control/monitor.


Events listed below are supported for up to 20 Areas per System.

  • Alarm
  • ArmAway
  • StayArm
  • Disarmed

These events are triggered once on the initial change of state.

The Areas are Referenced using the Area ReportingID (See more detail below)


Actions are supported for up to 20 Areas per System

The Areas are Referenced using the Area ReportingID (See more detail below)

Please note that this method of control allows you to potentially control the the Alarm directly without user passwords.

This functionality should be used with caution if you are to maintain the validity of your alarm system security.
