  1. When the system was removed (not by me) apparently the previous installer was awful. No tamper monitoring on any devices including the bell and both P.I.Rs were stuck to the wall with double sided tape!
  2. Oh yeah awful panels. Programming is a nightmare and key combinations are annoying.
  3. Here are some less common 90's panels. A pyronix paragon and pyronix conqeror.
  4. You are best just to either put up with it (its probably a key sticking on the keypad) or face the truth that its an old, not particularly common even in its day system, that parts are no longer manufactured for. It will be fine (for now) but if you continue to neglect it it will only get worse than a beep every now and then and start to go off on its own accord. Systems need to be maintained (annually at least), and despite what people say there are things that can go wrong on them. Its up to you if you want to leave it but further down the line it will end up costing you more headaches and money than its actually worth when you have to replace the whole system.
  5. I found this for a fiver... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pyronix-Sterling-10-Intruder-Alarm-System-Control-Panel-LCD-Keypad-READ/202747354387?hash=item2f34af1d13:g:o5cAAOSwz~RdFJvy. The never version which you have is quite hard to come by but I will keep my eyes open for you In Pauls words it is a rather 'scummy old thing' but if it fixes the problem then its better than paying for someone to redo the whole thing. Also it would help you find out if the keypad is the issue or if the panel is knackered. I assume you are a novice and would not be too comfortable fiddling around with the actual control panel. You could replace it with an accenta or veritas if you would be comfortable to do this, and as long as your system has under 8 zones it would be a straight swap. Have you considered contacting the origional installer, as they could be able to help you? Sincerely - MrWaghorn
  6. And more... https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Technical/DataSheets/Ade/Opticam_installer.pdf ADE Opti-Cam (as mentioned here previously) installation manual.

Always wondered what these were like. It seems by the button layout it could be based on the accenta / optima but could be somthing different. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honeywell-Glassbeak-Simulator-FG-701/273604891846?hash=item3fb41f54c6:g:aUcAAOSwhfRcD0iC And finally a Honeywell GlassBreak Simulator. Made obsolete by smartphones and the such.
  7. Ok so only the one from me but found this quite intresting... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DA-Systems-Abacus-Combined-Microphone-Loudspeaker-Unit/192931343998?hash=item2ceb9aae7e:g:ETwAAOSwodNc3UoO
  8. Yes its back in day mode. The user log - DOY! How couldn't I have thought of that haha. Thanks for the help - MrWaghorn
  9. Hi all! So after coming back from a weekend away I noticed the outside siren was flashing, but no alarm inside or out. When I opened the front door it did the usual entry beeps but REALLY LOUDLY and when I entered in the code it displayed numbers 1-8 and a load of zeros then TP and TP. There were reports of power cuts nearby but the oven clock was still showing the correct time. Also the alarm itself is about a year old so I assume its not the battery. If anyone has a suggestion to what the cause may be please let me know. Thanks in advance - MrWaghorn
