  2. There the 3 leading brands of non powered detection... However I assume non of them make the glass reeds ?
  3. Thanks for advice MrH and SWB. I quite like the idea of the multi resistor ones. Can I ask if Knight, Elmdene and CQR are all decent makes?
  4. If you have neither then its probably not worth taking over
  5. I try to avoid flush on external in case of moisture. If I have to sealed type to a JB would be my preferred.
  6. look very carefully how big a gap you have between frame & door to fit the top of the nylon contact in place the stainless steel capped ones are thinner & more robust if they rub together
  7. I've decided to buy and test a flush mounted contact to see if I can fit into the frames. Probably an Elm-6QFC(RD) and/or RFT-RD as the metered tails on the pre wired one may be too short.
  8. Hi guys been having some issues with this panel, it seems a bit different from most scannys I've worked on. I'm trying to send a confirmed alarm on this panel but it's in an occupied building. My first issue is trying to set 2 zones to a seperate area, in the programming menu it appears I can only set area numbers rather than the usual A, B, C, D. (Unless I'm doing something wrong) 2nd problem is when I try to set a particular area that isn't the default one I get the "areas can't be accessed" come up on the keypad. Any help greatly appreciated!

  10. there ain't none, however there are a set of big boys rules.... when taking other peoples tat over you either have to the product knowledge of how to over come any lock or quirks of the product or have enough £ in the job to put your own stuff in from either the start or retain the subscriber for enough years to make it pay.. confiture demain, as you might say ? Sadly a few hundred quid for new control can be a problem as the subscribers can be living had to month with the latest I-Phones, Range Rovers & shirt sponsoring the local professional sports team... taking priority
  11. Its better to lock to protect the company and insurer etc. Plus the programming belongs to the maintainer. eg SIA lock all but do default on request. If the ex client doesnt want to pay for the default, boards are defaulted foc at the office. Issues with gear is how they are programmed, passwords used in onvif, how systems are setup etc. Plus incoming company should always default to know it is programmed to their requirements with the client that may have changed. Had a conversation recently regarding this and there is the potential for liability issues for the outgoing company 'if' the incoming company can prove they didnt change xyz option. Always better to default on leaving and incoming
  12. The OP can't get it... so I'll recommend that too!
  13. I lock every panel since I moved to hkc and every higher end texecom I find is also locked It's all good best way Also happy to release to an installer
  14. There are no rules on NVM locking its down to personal preference.
  15. Hi chaps, just wondering what are your views on locking panel ? I can't really see any reasons other than making the next installer's life difficult. I have had the case recently when the panel had to be replaced but the client was never consulted or told about it. Anyone know what the regs are ?
  16. Going off what I recall of previous thread, above was already suggested plus pets.
  17. employ a competent alarm company to wire the site before you plaster :) shock ain't great they will FA, radio shocks are worst
  18. This is the sensible solution, you will then have an idea on coverage and also setup instructions to work from to make your decision. You don't always have an opening where it maybe the best location to place a shock. So normally separate unless you know the kit will work there. Wireless are often combined units depending on manufacturer, but you have a bit more flexibility with aesthetics then because no wires. Not saying you should fit wireless, just a observation that you can then have everything fitted and worry about positioning after with wireless.
  19. Thanks SWB. Aesthetics always a consideration but security is more important. Are separates thought to be better or is it just that they are more flexible when it comes to fitting? I've attached a word doc with examples of the frames. I'm about to do the first fix on and want to ensure that any wiring is in place as neatly as possible ready for the sensors, hence I was going to buy one of the sensors so I can test fit before starting to do any permanent work. windows.docx
  20. I would probably go separate unless aesthetics determines otherwise, would need to see the frames to work out positioning of shocks then you can go from there. If positioning of shock means you can't use combined that answers your question. Either way if combined I'd want something that signals activations from each detection separately.
  21. Hi all. Just after a little advice please. I am looking for recommendations on wired combined shock n contact sensors for all of my windows and doors. Have not yet decided on the main panel but it will likely be a texecom or Pyronix. The largest door is approx. 3.6m * 2m. It is a sliding door with 4 x 900mm panels. The 2 middle panels slide and 1 fixed panel on each side. Or should I be using separate shock and contact sensors? Suggestions appreciated.
  22. Agreed that's how I did pre sharpie that would of helped loads
  23. yeah, yellow, clear, red but mostly blue lenses ? we never used them, cequra was the 1st factory build box we had 1993 /94 ish ? I think it had the same pcb as the above
  24. Integra iirc with a choice of lens colours.
