    I don't have the option to create "rules" from my panel, why?

    I was really excited to start creating rules for my home automation options. (T-stat) but my enthusiasm was quickly deflated as I realized my menus were slightly different than the menus in the direction I had read online, my menu lacks the most valuable feature to me, the ability to create rules. . I was able to create some rules using the Alarm.com interface but I feel a bit ripped off, as I eventually wanted to make this a Local alarm after my contract, This 2Gig system is through Link Interactive. I do have the installer code, is their a way to give myself the local control to create rules, is it better than the alarm.com rules? they seem to be limited. I guess I don't have to worry about this till my 3 YEAR CONTACT! is up . i'm a $1000 into equipment and I feel a bit like it not mine all the way and its worthless with out a continued contract. Does anyone else use Link and can make "rules" from their Panel?

    ok, with the installer code I figured out I can change Q79 and make "rules" visible and Local but it disables remote changes, I have to pick, there is no option to have it both ways.

    Sounds like your service provider has not activated all the features that are available from alarm.com, you seem to have a good understanding and are aware that you have choices when out of contract

    Without and alarm.com plan, your rules are very limited when you create them at the panel and by changing 79 you figured that out

    What plan do you have with Link?
