  1. There was a delay in getting the cable but finally managed to sort it. Have set the shocks the a pulse of 4 and at a moderate sensitivity (test with sharp tap of a screwdriver handle approx 1-1.5m) All shocks are on there own zone and the 2 door contacts have been put in the same zone. Joints in the cable were made by staggered solder joint and then tapped up Thanks for your responses Sohail
  2. There is a door contact that used to be on the old patio door so may have to wire that in series to cover now 2 possible exits. It will just be a pain as the way the cable with the other 2 shocks and door contacts are on the other side of the room wired to a single 8 core cable Will let you know how I get on as the more I think about it the clearer it gets Sohail.
  3. Hi Al Thats correct I have 2 shocks each on their own zone which were on a windows but now being moved to extension window with door in middle. I have a spare pair of wires but don't think they are connected at panel. I wired the contact to the as a test to the alarm terminals of the shock one of the shocks and the comtact seemed to work the wrong way round i.e. alarm when door closed rathe than open. I will be having a proper play tonight Thanks Sohail
  4. Hi alarm protection I think I will be fine with a little advice, I probably just need to get a contact that offers NC and NO option Thanks Sohail
  5. I had a look at the 595 eng manual and there should be a review option but it is missing. Is there a quick way to tell it if it is a 595
  6. I have take the cover off the shocks that used to be on the window that was removed, The shocks each have there own zone which is good the only issues is. the shocks are wired to trigger in the closed state and the contact is the other way round (closed when door closed and open when door opens) When I did some quick tests this would mean the alarm would trigger with the door closed. The cable being used is 8 core so I do have a spare pair but not sure if they are connect at the panel side, would an installer have connected these to the panel and just not programmed them? What is the easiest way to check if just need programming, I think I have a gardtec 595 Thanks Sohail
  7. Hi al I don't want to mess with the panel so there may well be enough pairs for an additional contact but then I need to make sure it is connected at the other end. I each shock is on its own zone then I can put both shocks on one zone and the contact on the other, if not I will just add it in series to the shocks. If the cable has been delivered I will be having a play tonight Thanks Sohail
  8. Hi James thought about that but decided against it as if anything ever goes wrong I can see the window company blaming the alarm install. I have hopefully managed to get some matching trim pieces that I will use to put over the cables. Now is just what to do with the sensors, can I daisy chain the shock to a contact I understand they will be on the same zone but the main thing is the door will be protected better. The sensors are wired EOL so I guess I need to move the resistors to the last sensor Thanks Sohail
  9. Didn't see this section so posted in the detectors section by mistake, might get more visability here Hi We have just had an extension which now covers an alarmed Patio door (2 Shocks and 1 contact) and also an internal Window (2 shocks). These have now been replaced with internal doors so I wanted to move the sensors to the extension which has 2 entrances with windows either side I can move the old patios door shocks to the main entrance which comprises of 2 large windows with french doors in the middle, so thats 1 shock per window and contact on the door. The side entrance has a single door with 2 smaller window panels, will the shocks be o.k for this or should I replace one of the shocks to a contact and then change the sensor via the panel to a contact The windows and doors are brown upvc so I am looking at some way to hide the cables but all the trunking I can find in brown is 25 x 16 which is a little large. I do have the engineer code for my system so hopefully with the help of the manual I should be able to make any changes I need. Thanks Sohail
  10. Hi Norman No it's not under a maintenance contract Thanks Sohail

  12. This software seems to do what you want i.e email the changed ip address an it's only $9.99 http://www.guldendev.com/?display=dynamicipmonitor Sully
  13. I am o.k with that who else am I going to call if it goes tits up as you can see from my postings I know F.A about alarms Sully
  14. anguscanplay I am carm just felt a little cornered since I joined, I am a member of many forums and I try to help regardless of how silly I think the question. I am not a cheap skate by any accounts but sometimes the good days come to an end (hopefully temporary), you are correct I wouldn't be happy paying for 5 years maint up front but not a problem on a yearly basis. The point I was trying to make is that if anything goes wrong you always go back to the installing company so they stand to make some more income. Hopefully they will come back with a slightly reduced offer and then I get a certed pro job and then atleast I can reply to any newbies and show them light. Thanks Sully
  15. There are plenty of professionals in many trades that do work on the side, with regards to reduced pay there is a discount available in most things these days, PVC windows, electrical goods at Curries Dixons etc. I'm sure it won't be a problem if I was asking for a price match against another company. It's the long term maintenace that is probably more lucrative than a new install anyway. Fair enough that I thought the job was easier than it really is and I listened to all the advise, after all I am a noob so no need to jump down my throat. If you are not happy with my posts then feel free not to read them. Sully
