  1. well I guess that's me on the naughty step - If you want to be an alarm man get a job with an alarm company. You not going to get any much experience buying tat from ebay, reading books or asking on an alarm themed forum

  4. If your looking for a security forum with no pisstaking.... you've made the wrong choice You'll need an eng code to make programming changes to your system, a 1/2 decent alarm monkey could probably move all your devices about with just a customer code

  6. Pick up the phone & call xyz alarms they'll repair it & place it on maintenance contract, oddly the maintained alarms give much less problems than unmaintained alarms ? or lob a battery at it & wing it.....

  8. Thanks for letting me know, but any way I wasn't looking for any answer here. Not sure if it's ok to reply to posts with unrelated messages but I will slow my self this time. I'm just very new in this forum and still trying to catch up with the local culture.

  10. dont know it but even the micromax has an input. Id assume it was wired wrong. Once met someone that thought wiring the breakglass to the rte was better than breaking the power as it allowed for programming!!!

  11. Frankie and Bennies urggh never tell them its your birthday unless you like Cliff Richard. I was in there for a quiet meal one evening with the missus unfortunately I picked a day that about 20 people had their birthday and they all decided to go to F&B to celebrate. Every 5 fooking minutes they played congratulations and came out with a cake with a sparkler in it. I wouldnt mind but cliff was played much louder than the ambient music which made me jump every fooking time it came on. Foods not that great for the money either

  13. We are in Storrington West sussex but we are not the cheapest company, (we are not the most expensive either) it depends on what you want but we only supply quality kit which we install professionally. Not that we will be available for any installation works for some time as our books were full before lockdown, and we have work coming in still everyday. Oops you said no sales pitches, forget what I said

  14. I'm currently working on a virtual RIO module as part of something that I want for my own home automation. I'll sell this for the bigger panels like the FX100+ and GD96 upwards, as they have lots of links available. The virtual RIO sits on the RS485 bus and will consume 4 addresses, giving 16 outputs and 32 inputs in virtualised form. On my own system, I currently have lots of outputs programmed to switch lights, heating and garage door Etc, but I either control them from the app, or guard codes. I've been looking at OpenHab, so would like a way for linked zones with virtualised outputs t

  16. From past experience I'd expect pricing within a month of model no. & the item by the time it takes slow boat to arrive from china. However, its rather different circumstances at the moment... Even when stock is meant to be the country ordering & taking delivery are 2 different thing's

  18. I am glad you found the forum useful, forums are generally for discussion on topics which you were a part of over your 10 posts. Multiple people in the trade answered your initial question within 1 hour during the weekend, which you would do well to find anywhere else. If you would like some over-opinionated social media bull, lecturing, false information or useless memes, feel free to ask your questions on twitter or facebook in the future.

  31. Apps - making life harder for alarm co's & providing little or no revenue. As for progress, will your app signal without power to the premises or the line cut ? App ain't really suited for security...

  32. Its not that I am unwilling to help I spend a lot of free time helping people here if I can, but I already get pestered by engineers 24/7 so I wouldnt want to add to that stress. It really depends on how you see your future and what you want to do with your career. What I would say is that ideally you should look towards maybe a trainee position, and get some experience, it is how most company owners start out. You cannot learn experience from a book, or another person for that matter. There are people out there who saw a picture of a burglar alarm once and then started

  34. Id say every 5 years is fine. Better to replace before panels report it to prevent damage but modern panels seem to do better with failed battery's than the old dumb stuff

  36. i dont, without knowing the cause just slowing down the sensor is hiding the issue and making for a potential no detection

  37. Galaxy have always been behind the curve with aesthetics imo, the mk7 is my preferred one, the mk8 looks gash for a modern day bit of kit. 9600 was awesome by comparison but the recent Texe would be my choice.

  46. He's talking about the deterrent value though, you wouldn't know it was a real system until you'd passed the point of being 'deterred'

  47. You need to find out what detection there is on the system, at that age I wouldn't be surprised if it's a detector, a door contact and probably a (disconnected) pressure matt. Once you know this you can systematically work our what detection is in part set v full set. There may be a fused spur nearby, alternatively it can be done inside the panel but it hurt's if you get it wrong so personally I recommend you get someone over to check it out or even down-power it for you.
