    Pyronix Euro Mini Mains Fail

    A lot of panels have option to suppress mains fail for a period of time, wouldn't know where to find that on Euro mind. I imagine you wouldn't need to reduce the timer, just leave the AC isolated until it triggers the output. It's delayed for a reason.

    I would imagine you will set the tamper off when you up stuff up if that's what the question is? Internal alarm can be silenced with the user code. Merged threads please do not post twice.

    Honeywell Galaxy 2 - Alarm Fault

    If you know what you are doing you can work out what is on Zone 1002, test it and work out if something needs replacing or repair. Does the system work correctly intermittently or has the system not armed correctly since the original service? If the original visit was a service I can understand the call out charge for the second visit but if this is a reoccuring issue from the second visit, I wouldn't expect another charge. I have no idea how much you paid to have the system installed but it not as simple as that, you could swap all the controls and there be a fault on the wiring for example. You can have similar issues with any home service, boiler, lecy etc.

    Poor video quality (1080p HIK cameras & Sannce DVR)

    I know some have started to remove equipment on the mobile stacks but as I say it's a lot of equipment it's not all going to be replaced. Don't underestimate the power of consumer products, it would be the most disruptive form of attack.

    Honeywell Galaxy 2 - Alarm Fault

    Zone 1002 is active when the system is arming. I would argue that if it's the same fault from the original call out that it has not been fixed, although it's difficult to comment on the situation without seeing all the facts.

    Advice needed

    Systems need servicing regularly. It's quite possible the battery and charging circuit have gone faulty in which case a new battery would only be a temporary fix. If you know what you are doing you can check this but more likely an engineer would recommend replacing the controls and possibly the external sounder.

    There is no battle, I stand by what I said years ago that fitting Hik is race to the bottom. I fit proven gear I trust, if people don't want that quality of service they will find someone else to throw it in. Huawei will never be dust, we are too far down the road of having there stuff everywhere it's in both Openreach and mobile backbones plus all the consumer gear - routers and tv boxes etc. Yes US have dropped all Chinese gear going forward but they have people just as corrupt on the other side of the argument. I can't see them expanding into the 5G market at the moment but far from dust.

    Cameras may have a menu to switch between formats, although best to check that, I don't fit Hik.

    Yes. I also agree with James that the cameras are positioned incorrectly. Also note Sannce are Chinese DIY tat that are one of the manufacturers known to have been compromised if you are planning on putting it on the net.

    Cameras are TVI when the system isn't.

    Never seen one that shape before. CQR FP2 with a bit filed out?

    Ah yes fitted one of them once. Bin fodder.

    Things generally don't just work by sticking wires in holes with security systems, they still need programming for the use case. More complicated the panel or configuration the more complicated the programming gets.

    Output or input needs inverting if it's doing the opposite. Also tamper connections not connected to the panel?
