    Risco ProSYS Plus

    Anyone else found the new ProSYS Plus software to be flaky, badly designed and laid out to make it as complicated as possible to program without a laptop? The BUS system in particular is really bad, personally I have only second fixed and commissioned these systems. System 1 was cabled in CAT5e (apparently recommended by Risco tech)? had to double up power cores to get voltage above 10v at the keypad. System 2 was cabled in alarm cable and I had to double up on the power cores again and run two separate data lines within the same cable splitting the detectors up from the keypads … it was the last resort and only thing that worked. however, 3 keypads on the system but only 2 show up. if 3 show up then nothing works. Metered the cable, fine, cable length less than 50m (estimated as I did not first fix) appears to be no interference. Every time I did a BUS device re-learn it changed what it saw for the keypads. conclusion.. bad cable or bad software. personally I think flaky software, would love to hear your thoughts/experiences.

    Cooper Security 9853 won't reboot.

    All sorted now with a new detector and a good clean of the keypad. For anyone finding this post the fire detector can be linked out with a 2.2k resistor. Thanks again, £19 was a cheap fix.

    Honeywell Reson8 8EP420 with Yale HSA alarm

    Gentlemen all, thank you so much. Too late to test at this time tonight, I’ll wait until the morning to try. Very much appreciated. MrHappy, you are spot on with the fact that these devices are very low tech, but that usually lasts the longest. New tech is fantastic - when it works! :-)

    elmdene prima 300

    Hi all, long time no see, I have removed a few prima's recently mainly the old 200 and 300's, sadly obsolete haven't got a bad word to say about them, except maybe the soldered on board batteries were a bit of a pain to replace, other than that very loud with a bright strobe you can actually see and cool comfort leds, Only question I have is regarding the total current draw on these? I have measured a few and highest reading I got on one was approaching 700ma!, the others were around the 500 600ma ma mark, Was the prima 200/300 ever this power hungry?, or is it likely the on board batteries have become faulty over the years to draw this amount of current?, Is this the reason they were replaced with the prima 500 to keep the draw down. Just curious, thanks
  19. Good afternoon. My trusty Yale HSA2500 alarm failed this week, or at least the bell box did. I have purchased a replacement Honeywell Reson8 (8EP420) bell box, which says it "can be connected to any intruder control panel". I’m sure it can, but the connector designations are different and I don’t want to short anything. so may I intrude on your good selves to assist me with the connections? I thought it would be really easy. Come on, just five wires, what could be difficult about that. PLEASE could you assist me? The connections on the Yale control panel connect to the Yale Bell box thus: Yale Control panel. Yale Bell box SRN - to BELL TRIG STB- to STB TRIG SUPPLY+ to +12v AUX SUPPLY- (1) to - 12v AUX RTN- to BELL TAMP L The connections recommended for the Reson8 are here: Control panel Reson8 -STROBE or ST- to STB- BELL- to TRIG- TAMPER SUPPLY to HOLD OFF- BELL+ to HOLD OFF + TAMPER RETURN to RTN- I’m assuming that I connect like this: Yale Reson8 SRN- will connect to TRIG- STB- will connect to STB- (that one makes sense) But I am really worried about connecting them and the other three. Please could I seek your assistance? I have attached a copy of the relevant page of the Yale manual, and here is a link to the Reson8 user manual. https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Technical/DataSheets/Ade/TSRESON8_Install.pdf May I thank you in anticipation, and express my gratitude in advance?. Many thanks. NOLBwithaD “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Yale HSA 2500 P5 only.pdf

    Knipex for cutters, but I quite like the CK ones with the 2.5 & 1.5 slots, saves me the job of blowing them up to get the same result! Handy having the socket screw chopper on them too. Mind you, a good set of Knipex cut through screws like butter anyway. Used Draper screwdrivers for a while now, seem ok. Used to get a lifetime guarantee on CK screwdrivers, don't know if that's still the case. Use 'em, bugga 'em up, take them back to the wholesaler for a shiny new one!

    Wera or whia for insulted tools. However apart from CK screwdrivers being soft, there all about the same as a £1 odd draper expert no. 2 pozi from Toolstation.
