  3. I got this system from a abandoned building with permission that was being demolished i dont know any of the codes but i do have a RFID tag thats already programmed in but i need to reset it to use it as the engineer manual wasn't very helpful on resetting it without the code

    David Snook scanned from PSI Magazine- PSI Apr 2019.pdf kinda on topic...
  5. Thanks. It looks like a Premier Elite 24 will also work with keyfobs or does it need to be the Premier Elite 48? I'm only using 2 door open/close sensors and 3 PIR sensors off the main panel so no expanders to worry about.
  6. Dont forget to leave feedback for the fobs tho ;-)
  7. It's like an "international" version of a Premier, not so popular over here but still produced AFAIK. No prox tags on any version, I imagine unlikely to be able to upgrade it to the latest version with such old hardware either. Most are easily replaced with a PE48 as only go upto 832. Check for a plug on expander and remote expander versions for compatibility tho.
  8. ↑ it would appear v5 upwards software supports premier lcd keypads, v6 makes your controls around 17yrs old there is no support for prox tokens on any software version of this product
  9. I don't use the gear but iirc that panel is a really basic premier. As the keypad that's been added is a prox one I think you will need to upgrade the panel which isn't a bad idea anyway

  11. 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

    what is everyone using for fastening cables up with to meet with the new 18th edition changes? I've just quoted a job that has to be mostly surface trunked, so steel cable ties are out. I have just found some clips that go in the trunking, D line clips they're called. Has anyone used these before, and how much of a faff are they?

    Hello

    Yeah, I think they have just gone belts and braces with the external sab, 2 internal sounders, better to be safe than sorry, it just threw me a bit.....I think they may even be an scb on the back too.
  19. Thx for the replies. It looks similar to a Molex 4-way KK housing PCB interconnect with 4 flying wires, but I haven't measured the pins to see if the dimensions are a match.
  20. I'd assume 4 way molex pin with 3 wires ?

    Communicator connector for Scantronic 9448

    What does the socket look like?
  22. Hi Does anyone know where I can get hold of a communicator connector cable for the 9448? It's part number 485127. Thx Jon

    Scantronic 9448ES

    Thx sixwheeledbeast. I had been left no info on the alarm, had to find the user and install guides online, had to do a walk test to find out which rooms corresponded to which zones, had to reset to factory defaults because the engineer code wasn't known and had to work out how the speech dialler was set-up. Have now configured everything but as you say it's pretty basic - I had an i-on40 hybrid in my last house that was great. I think I'll swap this alarm out - something else to add to the to-do list.

    Hello

    Hello and welcome I'd go with the notification option re 2 sabs but could be remotely powered or no internal

    Hello

    I have been working in the industry for several years maintaining automatic gates, access control, CCTV and intruder. I have currently undergone SSAIB certification though, and it seems there is still a lot for me to learn as I move into doing more complex alarms and police response. Be prepared for lots of questions......first one.... I noticed 2 internal sounders side by side in an office on a grade three police response alarm, is there a specific reason for this? I looked in the regs but can't really find anything.

    Hi

    Hi folks... just joined the forum so thought id say hi. Im an alarm engineer to trade but I've been away from this line of work for about 14 years though still do the odd job here and there to keep my hand in. Technology has certainly moved on quite a bit in the last few years so will be handy having somewhere to go for advice Brian
