  1. Oh... hahaha... don't be silly. It's connected directly to a hatch which releases a 2 litre coke and kfc to bribe the police to provide assistance.
  2. Thanks for that. I'm still learning and appreciate the info. What makes T2 special then? Is it just that if it is "triggered" the alarm will show it as a tamper? What is an Uzi?
  3. Thanks. Could one theoretically use M, S and T1 together? I see nothing that says otherwise in the manual.
  4. Hello. I have two use cases for the SC-W contact/shock sensor. 1. Using shock sensor and magnetic sensor on my skylights to alarm when skylights are open or attempted break-in. My understanding is that the dip switches are: M - ON, S - On, T1 - Off, T2 - Off. 2. Using the inputs on the SC-W to connect my normally closed perspex burglar bars which essential have a wire running through them to determine if it's been cut. I imaging that one end of the wire goes to T1 terminal and the other to COM. Then dip switches are: M - Off, S - Off, T1 - On, T2 - Off. Then
  5. I haven't seen any techs wearing a T, but they maybe that's more for larger companies and not residential. Given that the large portion of our armed response security have bought their gun licenses (and lack even the most basic firearm competency), I think it's more likely the armed response meant to shoot someone the next town over and hit your tech friend by mistake
  6. Well thanks for the help everyone, I managed to get the PIR in and all working fine. Also installed Wintex so I can fix all the spelling errors and inconsistencies a lot easier I see a lot of strange things though in Wintex, example - for the exact same PIRs in adjacent rooms a good few settings are different for no reason - and other things where rooms in the middle of the house are marked as Entry/Exit. Some of my Ricochet external td-w beams also require that I put in my engineer code every time they are triggered into an alarmed state, I can't clear them with a normal user
  7. Sorry, I must apologise... really put my foot in it. Was frustrated with my local installers and with my inability to rectify the issues. Not trying to save money, literally just trying to get my system working the way I want it. When my local installers leave I'm left with spelling errors, sensors in incorrect zones and part arms setup incorrectly. Then when I changed installers they undid everything and made it worse... At one stage I even had to get someone who works at Texecom directly to come to my house to fix up the installer's errors. One of the installers had me replace half my s
  8. Hello. First time poster here. I'm getting annoyed with installers never doing exactly what I want, so trying to learn to do this myself. I have a new QD-W indoor ricochet PIR. I followed this video to add it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMFKPf77VVM It seems to have gone well as I have been able to see the following: - A tamper alarm for the zone when I was busy installing the PIR - When doing a walk test for area 1 the zone is picked up when I walk through it. Due to the location of this zone it is omitted from all part arms and should only be armed
