Im brand new to the world of Raspberry Pi and quite excited about what can be done with it. Basically I already have an intruder alarm installed in my house, I know quite a bit about the workings of them. It has outputs which can alert you if the system is going off but it also has inputs that let you arm/disarm the system. Basically I was hoping to be able to control these io's using an iPhone. Just wondering do I need to buy anything extra to connect the Rasp Pi to the io's on the alarm panel? Or can I just use jump wires as the wiring is just for signal rather than something carrying current.
I know some people have done similar projects but they all seem to directly connect the sensors to the raspberry pi, I want to connect the alarm panels io's to the Raspberry Pi.
