  1. If you dont know the code and it hasnt been serviced in years your gonna struggle to stop it without fully decommissioning it. Alarms need a little looking after or they cause issues as you have found out
  2. It's not a very respected manufacturer anymore that why Mr h is saying bin it. How old is it, when last serviced etc?
  3. meter the tamper return from the sounder to check its not that causing your tamper
  4. Agreed very few free things work well all the time. Its a security system at the end of the day. If signalling is important 'dont' use an app
  5. there was a protocol it was called open ip. But only manufacturer that supported it and made product was gjd
  6. If its reporting ac fail on 103 I'd start there. Measure ac side and dc side. Asuming that's all OK id assume a smart PSU failure
  7. You sure Al? I agree it depends on the size of the claim but not using your brakes if available might be a reason to avoid paying a claim?
  8. System standard vs component standard are very different things. At the moment using components to Gx makes a system, however you seem to be advocating a system standard which we dont currently have?
  9. It's not the middle if an insurer can reduce the payout they will. That's why loss adjusters exist. Unfortunately a lot of people assume they have insurance and assume in the never going to happen event that they need to claim they can. Then they look. We only look because of what we do
  10. Agreed but still needs caution a 1A psu supplying 500mA would need a 6 A/h battery to last 12 hours. then the same to recharge but if you factor a 10% derate for age over 3+ years it would take you over. Some would still run a 1A psu at 0.95A anyway
  11. 15min cutoff now and 30 min iirc for battery calc only in as much as the psu has enough capacity to run the system and recharge the battery in the recharge time required. ie leaving 100mA isnt enough unless it a 1.2 A/h
