  1. Some boxes can't do this in which case you need another power supply.
  2. If there aren't enough zones it needs a bigger panel.
  3. You don't want this to happen in the first place as that would trigger the outside bell hold off when mains and battery are missing. Programming should be stored in non-volatile memory but it can be possible for memory to be lost on older kit if the system is faulty.
  4. There will be a resistance threshold for closed loops but the lower the better, usually it's around 100-200 which you don't want to be near, but will vary on panel. Issue is diagnosing future issues when you have multiple devices on a circuit, as above.
  5. Well then the battery is also likely duff too. They need regular servicing to be reliable. Checking the tamper return voltage with a DMM would be a start.
  6. Why does it need an "engineer reset"? Sounds like the external box is duff to me but would need further diagnosis with a meter.
  7. From what i can make of your description its wired wrong. Hopefully a +ve on both tampers hasn't blown the panel or bell. SAB/SCB mode will be irrelevant to get it working.
  8. Well if it works just bung it in and use the formatting tool on the recorder? Windows can't read ext partitions. Would make sense for them to be ext something.
  9. Being embedded Linux it wouldn't necessarily be NTFS. Would use a Linux live ISO for checking drives like this. What do you want to do with them?
  10. Further diagnosis with a multimeter is required. The least likely thing popping the fuses would be the panel. Replacing only the panel will rule out a keypad but there are many other parts of the system.
  11. 192.168.x.x are private IP addresses that are only available to devices within the LAN. That wouldn't rule out an external address or peer-to-peer connections being accessible from the internet. It's possible he doesn't want the password messing with so you don't mess something the configuration up. You should be able to trust your installer, if not then ask yourself why you choose them in the first place.
  12. I suppose a cheap DVR would be the most cost effective to turn CVBS into IP. You also wouldn't need an IP address for each just login to the DVR. You can also get Phono to BNC converters so you don't need to remake the cables.
  13. The police will have been back tracing from the photos they found. Your ISP keep logs of which dynamic IP's are dished out for things like above.
  14. "NBN" like Openreach, down under? Bear in mind we are a UK based site but feel free to expand on your issue as above.
