    • This is a follow on question from http://www.thesecurityinstaller.co.uk/community/topic/41730-replacing-texecom-key-pad/ which contains some pictures of my current alarm system. Thanks for the advice on fitting the replacement key pad which is working fine. The new key pad had a wireless PROX keyfob symbol and I thought these would be better than typing in the code so I bought some Texecom Elite Keyfobs of ebay. However when I tried to program one I discovered that the menu option is missing so I presume this functionality is in the box rather than the key panel. What is my best option for getting the key fob functionality working? Can I upgrade the firmware in the main box to make it compatible or is to too old and I need to purchase a new master box? If it’s a case of new firmware where can I get a copy from and are there any instructions for installing it? Will the current settings remain after the upgrade or will I need to reprogram the system? If I need to buy a new box which one is going to be the best match for my current box? As far as I can tell the box is a Premier 412/816 running the V6 software based on the fact the manual is INS159-5 and it came with an additional loose sheet for the version 6 software.
    • Yes but becareful of the predrilled hole size of the dclip. Also can use plclips without predrilled holes when hidden. I was also meaning for other cable types   Most of the clips are plastic however   I think the 800 replaced the above 
    • I like the idea of the nailer, think that's going to have to be a definite investment.  I take it it can be used to fire nails in for the D clips as well, the pirelli's look good for fire cable, I'm thinking more along the lines of fixing alarm/Beldon/data cable.
    • Agreed on the d line. Also use a spit nailer for speed with pirelli clips
    • No know jack about them , everyone here has used them plenty    But fastening cables depends on where and how , I still see steel cables above voids , metal trunking in communial walk ways or plastic with d clips or other fixings

      Hi all
      trying to get an old galaxy 60 working for a customer at new premises
      I have intentionally removed Rio from system as area doesn’t need to be secured anymore and the system no longer recognises the zones which is correct. 
      However when I try to set system it says one of the zones on the “removed” Rio is still open. 
      Any advice appreciated. 
      Thank you

      Morning, are you still a plan partner? I work for an electrical company and have a job in West London that needs some work on. Very minimal. We have relocated some devices that need decommissioning on the local PC as they do not read the cards since the controllers have been powered down and back up again
