Hi all. I best start of saying I'm a complete beginner when it comes to alarm systems as you'll probably guess. I have a Honeywell Flex 20 and a keypad and a couple of budget PIR motion sensors to test out wiring EOL before I buy more (better quality) and install. On the manual its shows 8 connections on the sensor. 2x Faults, 2xTamper, 2x Alarm 2 Power. But on most of the motion sensors I've seen they only have 6 connections. 2xTamper 2x Alarm 2x Power The manuals showing me where to wire the resistors including into the 2 fault connections but how do i wire the resistors if I only have the 6 connections? I watched a couple of YouTube videos and I'm thinking I may have it right but now I'm not sure how that wires to the board as again the manual shows the fault connections being wired to the board. I've attached a couple of pictures from the manual and one from the sensor I think it's wired right, you'll have to ignore the wire colours as I'm using old cat5 cable for testing. Also another part what should be easy is if I'm not using a zone on the alarm I'm not actually sure where to wire them. Sorry for the fact questions and thanks for any help.
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
