Someone has asked me whether they can resolve this problem on their alarm themselves and what could be causing it. When they set their alarm, after around a minute, the alarm sounds and the the log shows the reason for the alarm to trigger as "KP1 Engnr".
Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me...?! I’ve had the pleasure of using A DA Abacus alarm with 2 remote keypads for many a happy year with no problems at all! Ideally, I want to carry on using this rock solid piece of kit, but I would now like the ability to be able to access the status and control the panel remotely (via the internet). As it stands, I don’t think this is possible? But, if I could interface to the expansion bus that the keypads are on, then I should be able to do with, for example, an internet connected raspberry pi that I can do with a keypad. Does anyone have any info on the comms used to/from the keypads and the protocols used? Or, worse (more expensive case) could anyone recommend a new alarm panel that I could retrofit in the Abacus position, using the existing sensors and cables etc but one that is connected to the internet? Any ideally that will still be able to use the existing keypads?? Asking a lot I know! Thanks in anticipation. Paul
Hi all, Just moved into a property which has abacus alarm system installed. One of my lil ones decided to press the panic button and now the alarm will not set. I've tried resetting but on reading some posts on the forum I'm aware I need to reset the panic button. The question is how do I do this? Do I need a special key? Any help will be greatly appreciated!! regards T
Hi all, Another issue with my alarm. On searching on the forum, I understand that a TRBL POWER fault on the DA system Abacus is due to a faulty battery. Just wondering if I remove the cover to find out what battery to get, will all hell break lose? I've not reset the system or set it as I fear the internal sounder will just go off for hours. I just moved into this property and been left with no manuals etc. I have no engineer codes either, just the master code. I'm assuming that if I undo the cover on the box, a tamper fault will register. Do I just switch the battery and reset the system with the master code? Or is this a job for the professionals? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance, Titch
