  1. " and the best tip read the questions slowly as some of them are not best worded " j.paul is dead right, and some of the questions are deleberately tricky but dont worry... the FIA have excellent tutors who take you through each section before testing you. I can recommend these courses to everyone even if you think you know it all. It was an eye opener to sparkies trained 20yrs ago who thought plastic cable clips met the regs:-)
  2. Our "problem" ended up a year later with a cooker fault to the earth in the commercial kitchen, earthing through the best line of earth it could get.... our camera tower! Buried 1m in the earth, it became the focus of a 240v cookers lust down the 3pin plug of the monitor. Then it went to the earth sleeve of the coax to the DVR, then to the cat5, to the cameras, which where firmly bolted to the tower. It melted all the cat5e, the baluns, the cameras were all shot once the baluns melted and applied 240v to the BNC output, the DVR case was humming even though it ran on 12v psu. Only the monitor survived. The tower was undamaged. Thank the lord for the client's insurance:-)
  3. I use Opera Mini (http://www.operamini.com/download/) on windows smartphone (Orange SPVe650) and it works well with LookC units. As always the signal governs update rates. Edge doesnt seem to be any faster than gprs in the devon countryside either.
  4. We had a similar problem at a site where we later found there was a serious mains earth fault- there was no earth, it had corroded. ( We had problems with picture rolling and distorting (partly solved with isolators). Good earth stakes on the mains supply in each building solved the problem for good.
  5. You have a good DVR in the cop XT -you could use a loop through output to stream to your web-page, but its a security device, so do not give the public control!-) Better to use a cheap PTZ web-cam with built in ip web server which sell for
  6. We put our first Advanced MX (Hochiki ESP) panel in recently to replace an old broke thing -on this forums advice- and I cant praise it too highly. We priced the dongle and software with the job, and it went in like a dream. The software prints a neat list of device/type/description etc. for you to stick on the wall with your sketch map. Top product. No drama, no crisis, and a very happy customer with a panel they can understand.

  9. Sounds like an Ard Disk failure. If you power down the mains, and on pwering up it goes through part of its boot routine and then siezes -it probably cannot initialise the HD As Alarmguard says, get it replaced - quick while they've got stock:-)
  10. Welding mask glass - 70p http://www.ukwelder.com/shop/lens/lens_list.php not the darkest -its only good for viewing solar eclipses
  11. You probably want new, but If your customer is happy with used I have a box full of 4 /8 /16 way multiplexers we have replaced with DVRs. Most will do quad/multi picture and PIP etc

    I agree with Lurch. OpenOffice does 95% of MS Office2003Pro, in almost the same way, with hardly any learning needed. Recommended And its free Used with Mozilla Firefox free browser, and AVG anti-virus we've had no virus/spyware/crash problems for years.
  13. We do use pet-friendly detectors, but - you have to position them so carefully..... In some spaces, at certain temperatures, some body shape people may not be detected Allowing your pet in an pet-friendly alarmed room may be compromising security, not just your false alarm record.
  14. I have a Tokina TVR0616DC 6-60mm f1.6 44-4.7deg f.o.view DIRECT DRIVE "almost used" and looking for an offer..
