  1. All done now, works perfectly Thank you to all those that replied, I’m most grateful
  2. I redid it properly, with the correct cable and in conduit this time. The funny thing is that I didn’t even know I had any phone cable.
  3. Thanks for all the help, but I don’t think even you lot could solve this !!! I had this great idea to bury the cable going to the garage while I was doing the footing for a patio. Buried it under 6 inches of hardcore and concrete, then paved the whole thing. Just gone to connect the wires and found out I have used phone cable by mistake, knew I should have use conduit
  4. Thank you MrHappy, thats how I thought Just so I have this right in my head. If I only used the white wires and someone cut the metal cable, it would cause a open circuit. Using the red as well, it will cause a tamper ? Keef
  5. I want to add this contact to my garage door but I am not 100% sure about the wiring It has, 2 white wires - reed switch 2 red wires - tamper I know how to wire the white wires via EOL, but do I need to use the tamper wires as well, or is it not necessary ? I was thinking 1k across the white wires Zone common in to white wire other white wire to red other red to zone return with 1k Thanks for reading, hope it makes sense
  6. Ok, thanks for the replies. I will just keep omitting the zone to keep it simple. I did lie about no more questions though ! On my siren there is a link for “ENG” which I assume is to hold off the siren when servicing it. Is that a + or - feed, or should it be connected somewhere else on the main board, such as RIO 1003 and programmed, hope that makes sense ? Thanks, Keith
  7. Ok, thank you That make perfect sense, and also explains why I couldn’t find how to do it. One last question, I currently have it set up for full and part set, is there a easy way of adding “Night set” as well. I have a dog which when he is left alone indoors I part set, but at night I need to turn off 1 pir (Conservatory) so we can walk around when it is set, I currently have to omit it every time. Thanks again, Keith
  8. I have installed and programmed a Galaxy 48 which I got free from a building being demolished at work. I have installed and programmed it without too much trouble, and it works ok apart from the strobe light. I am using the ADT alarm box (Yellow hexagon) which came with the alarm originally. When the alarm activates the strobe and the siren go off correctly, but when the siren stops, so does the strobe, rather than continuing to flash. The bell is on 1001 and the strobe is 1002. Both are latched, set to positive I have attached pics of the wiring both ends (Bl
