  1. The "Report Fail "is not the reason for the alarm activating, that's just telling you that it was unable to communicate. Its a DIY panel so not many here will be familiar with the panel but I am sure that it has a log(memory) get the user manual out and work out how to read the log that will tell you what triggered the zone then come back here when you still dont know the cause. When was the last time you changed the main battery?
  2. Im thinking of putting my non contract charges up to £250, the problem with £120 is its still cheap enough for people to actually say yes. We rather people just take out a contract than call us out for one off jobs that are quite often more trouble than they are worth. When you get there they are never as easy as they explained over the phone.
  3. Ive been told mine work better than the originals
  4. Or the battery was fooked it should have been replaced 9 years ago
  5. NVM failure would not make the keypad blank and unresponsive, cable to keypad or keypad is fooked (technical term)

  7. Yeah that looks like it will definately work with a Honeywell panel
  8. Ill let Santa be the judge of that
  9. I dont have any customers that keep pets like that, how the lower class engineers live eh

  11. one way wireless and two way coms are not the same thing, it wasnt graded when the rep came to see me but even so it is tat
  12. Really? AI CCTV is cheaper than you think and its getting cheaper all the time the tech is in the basic kit now for some brands. Its a security forum, I have trouble understanding what some of the northerners are saying. I had the Ajax rep in the kit looked nice enough if you like non compliant one way wireless tat everyone is welcome
  13. I guess that Ring Blink and such like has a market, when they work they do work well, the Ring doorbell I had was useless, even on WiFi. One of my engineers has one and says it great, though when Ive been with him when it rains he get millions of notifications. I have a decent CCTV setup at home that notifies me when someone is in my garden, or at my front door. I dont get false activations when it rains or when there is a cat in the garden, so I am more likely to look at my phone when I do get an activation, unlike my engineer that ignores activations from his Ring most of the time
  14. With CCTV you get exactly what you pay fo, if you expect a decent system with adequate storage, to be professional installed neatly, then expect to pay. We wouldn't retail a recorder and two cameras for £325.00 let alone a complete installed system, well not unless you are happy to have old new stock.
  15. LOL "an SI mom says she feel violated after a man infiltrated her ring"
  16. I guessed it probably was, but because the poster said it was a virgin problem I was slightly worried as I have quite a lot of customers on virgin
  17. I find CCTV is being installed by more and more numpties that either specify the highest spec they can ie 4k fixed 2.8 in s small corridor, or down the side of a building where a decent 4mp with the right lense will do a far better job, under spec the HDD 1tb, place cameras in the wrong place so they only capture the tops of peoples heads, and never change the settings like BLC or WDR. Im up against two mongs now in a school with a camera in each corridor about 2m wide by 10 to 15 m long, they specced 3.5 lenses do you think they will mount them all sideways to get the best view? The cust
  18. Hmm I have a webway and HKC on my virgin BB here never had a problem, plenty of customers on virgin too with no reported problems. Where abouts in the country are you?
  19. Ring, blink, and all the other cheap tat is better than the old tvl systems with a VCR, but at the moment its a long way from proper CCTV. James has a test Blink system and it is mildly impressive for the money, if 5 secs of video motion every time someone visits your house or when go out or you come home is enough for you.
  20. yep over 1k if you put coax in the middle not that Ive tried it
  21. I dont know about others the epoe does what the op asked, which was my answer to the question
