Hey Guys, I have a few newb questions. Firstly,do I only need to put resistors at each sensor (EOL setup)? I’ve read the manual, but it doesn’t specify this… (I’m about to use a Satel Versa 10 panel.) Or is there other places in an alarm system where resistors should be put? Am I right thinking I need 1 resistor, in series, at the furthest part from the panel (for example in the housing of each sensor)? Which wire should have the resistance? (The Alarm one, in this case it’s called „NC&C”(?) NC&C both signyfy that no R is needed don't they? ) If it’s a combined sensor (PIR & glass breaking) then do both NC&C inputs need a resistance added at the end of the wire? What if the sensor has an input called „EOL”? Does that mean that the resistance is included and no need to add one to that input or that i need to put the wire with resistance into that input. Secondly, what resistance should I use? I heard of using 3.3k Ohm, DSC panels use 5.6 kOhm AFAIK others 2k2... Is that specified with each brand/panel? Is smaller resitance better? It’s mostly to learn and for DIY fun, so that’s why such a newb doesn’t get professional help.( Introduction ) Thank you very much for your help, I am getting quite confused, as you may have noticed
