  1. Thanks. It looks like a Premier Elite 24 will also work with keyfobs or does it need to be the Premier Elite 48? I'm only using 2 door open/close sensors and 3 PIR sensors off the main panel so no expanders to worry about.
  2. This is a follow on question from http://www.thesecurityinstaller.co.uk/community/topic/41730-replacing-texecom-key-pad/ which contains some pictures of my current alarm system. Thanks for the advice on fitting the replacement key pad which is working fine. The new key pad had a wireless PROX keyfob symbol and I thought these would be better than typing in the code so I bought some Texecom Elite Keyfobs of ebay. However when I tried to program one I discovered that the menu option is missing so I presume this functionality is in the box rather than the key panel. What is my best option for getting the key fob functionality working? Can I upgrade the firmware in the main box to make it compatible or is to too old and I need to purchase a new master box? If it’s a case of new firmware where can I get a copy from and are there any instructions for installing it? Will the current settings remain after the upgrade or will I need to reprogram the system? If I need to buy a new box which one is going to be the best match for my current box? As far as I can tell the box is a Premier 412/816 running the V6 software based on the fact the manual is INS159-5 and it came with an additional loose sheet for the version 6 software.

  5. I have a Texecom alarm with a Veritas R8 (or plus?) / Excel styled control panel box with a Premier LCDL remote key pad from around 2003. The keys on the remote key pad were made of a soft silicone and some of them have become worn and difficult to press and register. I have looked around but I can’t find replacement silicone key pad so I purchased a second hand Premier LCDL remote keypad from ebay with the intention of changing over the silicone but the new keypad actually came with solid plastic keys which look much better and should last much longer. Now I’m wondering if I can just swap the whole keypad units over rather than just the silicone keys which may not be possible as the solid keys likely won’t fit the old unit. Before I try swapping the remote keypads over I wanted to sanity check I wasn’t going to do something totally crazy. Are all the settings (zones names, users etc) stored in the veritas control panel while the remote keypad is simply a dumb terminal or are some settings stored in the remote keypad in which case I would need to write them down and the reprogram the new keypad? I’m not using any of the additional zones on the remote keypad, the only things that are connected are the +,-,T & P connectors for the network. From the paperwork I have it looks like the box could be running Premier 412/418 V6 software. The circuit board on the original Premier LCDL keypad is Texecom 2001 D0243-02.02, barcode PPL201920 with a date sticker 17.09.02. The replacement Premier LCDL keypad is 4207 Texecom 2005 D5048-02.05, barcode LRP3112727. It could actually be an LCDLP keypad as it has PROX on the front. The control panel has E77787 and barcode EOS2026168. Does anyone know if any data is stored on these remote keypads or if it’s all on the control panel and if so are the keypads are fully interchangeable? Will the newer keypad work with the older control pannel?
