  2. We get so many of these and always the op is convinced that its the alarm, I remember as an engineer telling a customer over the phone it was a low battery on their smoke, they insisted I come out. £70.00 plus VAT (it was the early 90's) callout later, I found an old smoke detector in a kitchen drawer with the battery still in it. Its like we tell them what it is and the dont believe us

  3. I'd suggest you power it all down then find out it's a battery operated bit of junk, nest smoke, other smoke detector then I'd look for alarm clocks birthday cards etc. A powered down alarm is just that.

  5. It's not just routers https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-56996717 As more and more devices are connected to the Internet firmware upgrades need to be done. Sia updates all firmwares on supported systems as released if required. Whats the thoughts on auto firmware updates and what about the systems without support contracts in place?

  6. Had exactly the same thing many times. Once a customer was convinced it’s was the alarm and insisted we attend site to fix. I advised that we would charge for the visit. On arrival I found an old carbon monoxide detector down the back of a sideboard in the lounge, I was on site less than a minute. they kicked off big time when they got the bill and canceled there contract, they did pay though. good riddance nob heads.

  7. 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....

  10. Id was/is clever but basic and doesn't handle any interference. It not data as such In 100ms the panel would pulse between 2.85v to 6.5v 1 pulse for biscuit 1 10 pulses for biscuit 10 and so on. Each biscuit counts the pulses and draws a different current if open or closed after its pulse count has occured After all 30 have done this the panel rises the line to 11.25v which resets the counters and tells the biscuits to start counting again. All in 100ms. If a biscuit reports open for 3 scans (300ms) the panel then reports alarm. Later panel had this programmable tho
