  1. If there aren't enough zones it needs a bigger panel.

  3. Agreed a fuse is their to protect the control panel, they dont blow because the there is something wrong with the control panel.

  6. if that fuse is only feeding the keypad then yes. But id suspect its also feeding other things. It will be one of those devices. Id go with device rather than cable but as mr h says it could be a staple, nail etc penetrating the cable somewhere

  7. @Honda3 find a local tame alarm man, get them to price via email to replace the controls, battery & external bell. they'll measure all the cables & currents if they've 1/2 a brain... I'd assume your cables are stapled under the carpets ? Replace the fuse & tread on every inch of carpet where a cable might be lurking

  9. 7 years later I think it's been solved... Also default digi outputs depend on which Texe panel, "1=fire 2=pa 3=int" is not always true. They are fully programmable obviously, also outputs are -ve applied, all this was covered above.

  10. You don't want this to happen in the first place as that would trigger the outside bell hold off when mains and battery are missing. Programming should be stored in non-volatile memory but it can be possible for memory to be lost on older kit if the system is faulty.

  11. Might be due to the NTFS file stucture, this is good https://sourceforge.net/projects/superdiskformatter/

  12. Further diagnosis with a multimeter is required. The least likely thing popping the fuses would be the panel. Replacing only the panel will rule out a keypad but there are many other parts of the system.

  13. I'd be wanting to find why the fuse is blowing, that's more likely a wiring or peripheral issue rather than the panel

  14. Hi, Sooooo as the title suggests, i'm considering starting my own alarm company. Sure i know a lot of people will ask this, and yes i feel pretty confident in my abilities and i have been doing services and installs for people recently which has given me this idea. My question is though, where do i even start? I have business insurance so this is all covered but I would love to try and get some approval but again I have no idea how to go about this. I don't expect to end up like ADT nor do i really want to be. Also any tips and advice to make this

  15. Where do you think RS gets them from? Everything comes from China check the label on your underpants. You wont be able to compete with the big boys if you source your products from RS

  18. If I was a betting man- I'd wager you've more chance of getting a hand job off her majesty the queen than your powered down alarm making the "chirp" You've probably got a brand new in box, carbon monoxide or smoke alarm in the cupboard....

  20. All sounds fine. 1.56 is the latest firmware, with 1.53 being suggested minimum for SelfMon. You may need to disable the RF portal virtual RIO if it ends up grabbing RIO address 2 that you set on the c072. You can disable the rf portal virtual RIO in menu 51.60

  21. To be your own alarm co. with your own customers & installations is quite a lot of hassle for the £ Its takes a long to build a co, from nothing & its probably getting harder every yr

  22. It's a dying industry and you would be better off as a 'spark plus' e.g. be able to also competently do fire / access / networking - a nice little earner on small commercial type works. Im my experience of both... People wont even question you for a spark quote if it's something 'nice' e.g. a conservatory, extension, man cave etc... or they are desperate to get an office finished for a business. Especially if the builder is wanting £50k, your quote usually just 'disappears'. People will fight over the last £5 or 'I might just get my mate to do this, thanks for comi

  23. I would suggest you subby for a while, starting your own co is not that easy if you dont have a regular income the bank will repossess your house. The mistake most people make in this industry when it comes to insurance is that the think public/employee liability is enough, you need efficacy. Look at the NSI and SSAIB websites for approval you need a minimum of 5 installs contracted. I would recommend NSI silver as there are fewer Silvers than there are SSAIB co's out there it may give you the edge over your local competition. Its easier to buy an established company than trying to start your
