  1. Indeed!! You sure it wasn't a Karizma panel....
  2. We've installed a few due to their large wireless capacity. Did the first 3 without training. A few varied problems - that tech couldn't resolve for quite some time. The panel was quite new for them. We then had the training..... which is really product familiarisation, which will not help anyone with the issues we had (or an installation). We use the macro keys for acknowledging the fault.... otherwise it is a real PITA. We had problems with the signalling being received properly at the ARC on digi's. No such problem with Redcares. Plenty of room in the panel (I think one of our clients found one of his Chinese workers sleeping in one - before it was powered up of course). It is not so fantastic for a residential...have to press * key to make a silent set once it has started to set (no silent set option). And some other quirky programming nonsense that doesn't come to mind (.....can't have an e/e circuit on more than one partition..... and have it set without the main partition being on...).
  3. Registering with the local police and having a Unique Reference Number (URN) from the Met Police Security Systems's Inspectorate are two completely separate things. The former does not give you any response at all, only the latter does. The URN can be can cancelled by the outgoing alarm company. If you had too many false Police call outs your URN would have been withdrawn. Did you ever pay (via Chubb) the Met
  4. Please keep this thread on topic and not dig up the same old arguments that are best discussed elsewhere, unless the topic opener states an interest(!). At the end of the day if Aljrob wants to have an insurance approved alarm he will have to use an SSAIB/NSI company. If he doesn't need it approved then he can go anywhere. TBH, why someone would not use an approved company is beyond me, but clearly lots do. Edit: Aljrob posted while I was compiling mine
  5. If the battery is dropping below 12V soon after removing mains then the battery should be replaced (unless there is a reason why it is not charging properly...). Also, if it is really showing 1.34A then it has no power to accept any load. It should be around 7amps. "Watchdog reset" is logged when mains and battery power is removed.

  12. The BT system is a dumbed down Powermax designed for for simple DIY. Not sure what the differences are, but it does not have all the features of the standard powermax, and I don't think comes with support from Visonic.
  13. There are pros and cons to all systems, and whether they are good or possibly not as good as they could be, there will always be someone to tell you not to touch them with a barge pole. For a true DIY installations you do not have many options. The two favourite options seems to be ESP and the Visonic PowerMax. You can always try and talk directly with their tech support to see if either have a solution to your concerns. Incidentally, I wouldn't say that it is common practise at all to put two live bells on any house.
