  1. Which Wireless Kit?

    Enforcer all day every day for me. I always wire the bell and keypad if possible too. Wireless is good for detection if cabling isn't possible but for anything like bells/keypads I would always wire. App has been flawless for me, have one fitted in my own house. Fitted plenty ion 40h's and the app has been pretty unreliable. Having to wait a few minutes after your system is set for your detection to respond is laughable also if you ask me. I prefer the look of the Eaton kit but the pyronix stuff just works, function over form for me! Grant
  2. Risky fitters

    As above looks ****.
  3. Pyronix UR2-WE

    I suppose it kind of appeals to customers on a budget to give their old system some flexibility.... Probably not the target audience for a business as such.
  4. Pyronix UR2-WE

    Has anyone used one of these? Looks like quite a good product but haven't used one yet. Any opinions? Grant
  5. Just buy the panel and swap it over if your confident you can program it then. Wouldn't mess around swapping over PCBs ect. (May have different rated PSU - PCB is definitely a different layout) Justswap the complete end station over - it has the same footprint as the ion 16 so will be a doddle.
  6. Worked on plenty Ion's, unsure if you could upload the ion16 programming to the 40h as I've never done it before. The panel can be programmed in approx 10 minutes from the keypad (by someone who knows the panels) anyway so wouldn't go down that route. As above seems a good price so I'd pay that rather than trying to DIY.
  7. gerry

    Sounds like a visonic powemax? Not heard of hot or cold alerts..... What are the zones programmed as?

    Is the panel back up battery healthy? When was it last changed? Probably when the power outage happened, there wasn't enough in the panel battery to run the system. The outside bell would then ring when voltage was temp removed from it (provided the bell battery is ok). I'd be checking panel battery and aux voltages and take it from there.

    How have you found the Traffic Peter? Heard horror stories of gearbox issues on nearly new vans, perhaps they've sorted them out?

    Fitted one of these the other day, seem like quite good little units! Grant
  11. Vans

    Hi all, What type of vans do you use and do you find them reliable? Leased or owned? Most co's seem to use Berlingos or something French up here in Scotland. I assume cause they are cheap to run? Grant
  12. That's good going PSE, nice one! Are you SSAIB/NSI approved? Nice to hear all the other stories too. Why do you hate doing domestics KWCFC/luggsey? I quite like doing the odd domestic, although you always get the odd nightmare customer you can never please. I enjoy doing commercials too. Grant
  13. Hi, As I'm new to the forum, I'm interested in what brought you to the security industry? Did you go straight from school into an apprenticeship or did you enter it some other way? I started out as an auto electrician for à few years then ended up getting laid off when the company lost its main contact. Through my old manager I ended up starting with a small security company where I then served my time. For those of you who now work for yourself/own your own company, would you do it again if you had the opportunity to do so now or would you choose a different path? Grant
  14. New stapler time!

    Very odd, I use a tacwise stapler which is plastic lol and it has lasted years. I bought a more heavy duty tacwise one which was metal after loosing one - thinking it would be more robust....... Broke it! Back to a plastic one again!
  15. New stapler time!

    I've broken 2 or 3.......
