  2. Most do disable the option imo. Nearly all the systems I have taken over have the option disabled. I find it a real pain when enabled with the usual response ‘we only have a fob no code’

  3. intruder alarms ? I'd advise any self employed electrician to make friends with a tame alarm monkey... aka - let some other mug deal with the hassle Its mostly coloured wires & product knowledge, you can do a b-tec or train with tavcom or similar If your foolish enough to want t be an alarm man just apply for job at the biggest co. you can find,

  6. I tried to buy Dr Martens from ARCO recently and was told they dont stock them any more? Ended up with ARCO's own brand alternative, which are *****, already falling apart and all I do these days is walk the dog.

  10. Hot plugging all serial could be fine, but when you misalign the pins it's the main board you take out not the plug on one

  14. I am not sure that signing could be enforced therefore it cannot be a compliance requirement, you cant tell someone that they must sign something otherwise their system is not compliant, all you can do is request a signature, and if refused, write refused to sign. Signing is useful though we had an old lady with alzheimer's who refused to pay for her service saying we had not been, but she couldn't argue with her signature.

  16. Bear in mind the pstn shut off will have unknown issues with comms. I wouldnt be using pstn for any primary path. However the question is very open, I like HKC for rf, 6wb like texecom, gg likes honeywell etc

  17. I would agree with this. If you don't keep your phone up to date, or buy the latest model and the app isn't kept up to date, then the chances of issues are high. If you have a look at a few apps reviews, you'll soon see posts of unhappy users where phones and OS versions no longer work. As a an app developer myself, I am often forced to update the app in order to keep provisioning on the stores. Some of these forced updates end up dropping support for older devices, leaving users with very old devices none too pleased.

  20. The Honeywell Galaxy Flex gives all this. Honeywell provide the flash upgrade program and firmware on their website without any login account requirement too. The app and push notification is free and there are low cost alternatives in the event that Honeywell do start charging. Look out for other offerings that integrate cloud services tightly with the panel, as they may not charge at the moment, but you could find yourself held over a barrel in the future.

  22. It's not my preferred kit but PowerMaster is at least full two way unlike the now discontinued PowerMax junk. I have only ever worked on the older models 30/10 etc. As long as it's not an ADT one, should be fine if you keep it maintained. You may want to look into the app and if the previous owners have access to it etc.

  23. Bear in mind the system is wireless so will require batteries in ALL devices swapping on a fairly regular basis. Very different system to your wired Paragon or Veritas you had previously, only having one main SLA battery maintenance wise.

  24. It is an installer option to make a zone chime(able), yes. If you have the manual I would suggest you read it as they have pretty idiot proof flow diagrams in. As a summary you need to "Define Zones" select the Zone number you want, skip to the chime option and select the chime type.

  30. For your DIY solution this would be possible when everything is controlled from a control panel but I wouldn't want to be trusting one way wireless doorbells or the like with this. My first thought would be using site PA system or class change to get messages out. Clearly a bespoke system like in the link above is a much better solution all round. Was thinking the same, very yellow.

  31. Hi we have a lockdown solution that not only sounds sounders around the school it works with an app. It can be activated from the app so from a smart phone and it will alert everyone in the school that has the app on their phone. It tells you not only that there is an intruder, but where on the grounds that intruder is. We have already installed this system in several schools and colleges. https://www.wakefield-security.co.uk/commercial-security/security-systems-for-schools-colleges-and-universities/critical-incident-management/
