  1. Great suggestion It seems the Flex 20 with small metal box [ product C005-S-E1 ] is what I need to get and the conversion cost seems pretty low. The only question remaining - is it worth moving from a well regarded solid G2-20 to a Flex-20 (on the basis that I am happy with the cost to replace the panel and the small investment in time)? How do installers regard the Flex range? Thanks
  2. Hi Al-Yeti, The Touchcenter wants an access code to enter setup. The factory default codes or subsequently changed system engineer and user-master codes do not work for this access code. Think I'm stuck with the wrong time and date. Thanks.
  3. Hi All I have a query about the extent of compatibility of the Touchcenter keypad when connected to a Galaxy G2-20 panel. I purchased the Touchcenter with some ignorance not aware that I would not be able to unlock all the slick features as it really is a Galaxy Dimension component. It seems that the only function available to me on the Touchcenter is the emulated MK7 keypad (which works fine). What is a little irritating is the incorrect date and time displayed on the home screen (shown before I press the MK7 keypad icon). Of course, the emulated display shows the correct date and time. Has anybody worked out a way to set the correct date and time on the home screen when using a Galaxy G2 or enabled any other features. I suspect the answer is no! Thank you.
  4. Hi A quick query about my self-installed Galaxy G2-20 panel and zone status in Menu 21. I have three Honeywell Wireless IR(PI)8M PIR's connected via a C079-2 RF Portal. In addition, several wired PIR's. The wireless PIR's have connected to the panel fine and I get the serial numbers and signal strength information etc.. When testing the wired PIR's I can see the current status of these (OPEN/CLOSED) in Menu 21 Zone Status depending on the live detection. However, I do not get a toggle between OPEN and CLOSED in Zone Status for my wireless PIR's if I place a live movement (a cooperating family member) in those rooms - is this normal? When I do a walk test the wireless PIR's detect me correctly and the system works fine. The lack of a live zone status for the wireless PIR's is just niggling me. Many thanks
  5. Hello James & GalaxyGuy Thank you for your help it is really appreciated. What a great forum. James - the ethernet module does show on the G2 panel menu structure after connecting - so I see what you mean my G2 panel does support ethernet modules!! GalaxyGuy - yes it is the CHIRON GT-20, looks like I'll be buying the LCE-01 module then! Is there a suggested marketplace for selling my pricey GT-20 to installers other than ebay? Again many thanks for your help. I'll also be posting a message soon about some other minor things. Cheers.
  6. Hi All I’m looking for some help with setting up remote monitoring on my self-installed Galaxy G2-20 panel. Here is a quick description of my system: Galaxy G2-20 Panel [Firmware 1.55] RF Portal [ C079-2 ] Ethernet Module [ GT-20 ] Two Keypads [ 1x Touchcenter, 1x MK7 ] 6x Wired PIR’s [ DT8016F5 ]; 3x Wireless PIR’s [ IR(PI)8M ] 2x Wired Door Contacts; 1x Wireless Door Contact [ D0800M ] 1x Outdoor Sounder [AG8] & 1x Indoor Sounder All is working very well but the getting a remote connection set up has defeated me. My aim is to subscribe to the SelfMon IP Monitoring Platform by SM ALARMS. Looking at the installation manual for the GT-20 Ethernet Module it seems that there are G2 Panels that support an Ethernet Module and some G2 Panels that don’t (for panels that don’t support an ethernet module is says the GT-20 simulates an External Telephone Module). I’m unclear whether my panel supports the module or not – how do you determine this? I assume it is by firmware version? Regardless, I have followed the instructions for both options and I am not making very much progress. The module is connected to my home network and using the FING App I can see it sat on my network. When I ping the IP address, I get 100% success and no packet loss. I have downloaded the SM Alarms Andriod VirtualKeypad App and cannot connect to the panel using it – trying lots of configurations along the way. I have also downloaded their Windows/Java Galaxy VirtualKeypad and with this I achieve partial success – in the Command Window it reports that I have logged in and connected to the G2 Panel – but I am unable to then connect to the panel using my browser once connected (the browser says page is unavailable). On the SM Alarms website it states that the Android app version of the VirtualKeypad works with the GT-20 module (although I note the website does list the GT-20 as compatible with the Windows version). I would be grateful for some help and ideas please.
