  1. Today
  2. Further to this, I have noticed that the option for name chime has been removed from latest firmware (19.3) for the newer generation of PIRs. It's still there for the NEXT and camera PIRs but it still works in the way I mentioned above. I guess there is no solution and I just have to abandon using the non-alarm (announcement) zones.

    Beat me to it, we're dinosaurs in comparison with skills that are no longer needed, don't knock plug and play in a few years home security will be wireless plug and play interconnected to your Alexa... Oh...

    My old boss wouldnt even by a hand held scope, mind you £300 was a weeks wages back then, I had to take a full size one to site

    I found specific testers much easier to use on site have a BBV and a Ranger.

    Hi all, advice, info needed

    Or behind a multiplexer with your scope checking you have 1v p to p. I always found it terribly clever how the mplexer encoded and decoded onto a vhs.

    Hi all, advice, info needed

    Probably best to stick that ,and not do anything that might be conflict of interest with your employer, assuming they only do fire ?

    Hi all, advice, info needed

    Got a load of the spacing rings if you stuck, forgot now which way round it is.

    Hi all, advice, info needed

    Ah the good old days, diagnosing intermittent issues up a pole in the rain, measuring for peak and sync on cameras that actually had pots to adjust them.

    Hi all, advice, info needed

    No skill with Hikvision thats why its so popular, its all plug and play. Do you know how to back-focus a camera? ( i dont mean focus I mean back-focus) Do you know what any of the stuff in the OSD is for like what BLC stands for or HLC stands for, shutter speeds? Very few people installing cameras nowadays have any idea on what settings to use, Hik have taken all the skill away and now a ten year old can claim to be a CCTV expert

    Hi all, advice, info needed

    Sorry, Intruder alarms and CCTV is my best skill. Scantronic,menviers,galaxy,texecom, Hik vision,concept pro to name a few. Door access, only touched net2 plus, abit of Videx. As above the company does. I service the odd fire alarm panels. Thanks mate, i kinda new where I am now at this time might be tough out there.

    Hi all, advice, info needed

    This the answer I needed. I can install alarms and cameras no problem, I just haven't had a install role. So from your answer I guess I need to get a install role and get more experience before going out. I do my own bits at the weekend so I know I more the capable but on a larger scale I'm not sure? Thanks
  22. After the entry time expires it should go into alarm correct
  23. If I disable Dual Ply the external sounder will go of immediately after my Entry/Exit time for EE zones?
  24. Bell delay for E/E timeout? For some reason called "Dual Ply" delay on Scanny.
  25. I am trying to install Scantronic 9448+ control panel but i am facing a problem with my EE zone and Zone 3 as i set it for Entry Exit as well. The alarm does not go off in the external sounder (Bell) for Entry Exit Zones, it only goes off in the Internal Sounder. Is there a way to over come this problem. Thank you.

    No, paper programming manuals do not come with any commercial grade panel. You maybe lucky and get a CD with the controls. Also the manual is revised regularly due to updates in both hardware and software, so your old manual while helpful may not cover everything.

    No but doctor Google seems to have lots of cures......
