  1. Hello, I have recently moved into a house and noticed that I have one permanently lit green LED on the external bell box. Neighbors systems seem to have 2 leds which alternate. Any idea what causes this? The alarm is a Veritas 8 with telecom bell boxes. Is that enough to go on? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi All, i recently purchased my first first house and the burglar alarm is not working. It’s a Veritas 8c control panel with 7 PIR motion sensors and a few door contacts and an outside alarm and light box. Something on the panel seems to have blown, there are black burn marks on the inside of the casing. Now my dilemma is to just buy a replacement panel (same model) and wire that in and let it be.. or upgrade the panel and eventually upgrade the sensors over time. if I was to upgrade, I would like something fairly modern, maybe that I can contro
  3. i think ive misunderstood the part set function of my veritas alarm panel (excel , lcd keypad ) my question is if i set zone one of suite one to E/E does this mean the that zone one of the other three suites will be E/E as well or can the zones of the other three be a different program type ? example suite 1 zone 1 E/E suite 2 zone 1 Guard suite 3 zone 1 inhibited suite 4 zone 1 back to E/E ps this is only an example many thanks any help is great
  4. Hi folks, Hopefully a simple one, I've installed a few of these Veritas R8, in this install I've added a remote arm/disarm (RF fob) to it by using a zone as a keyswitch, which works great. The user however wants to see/know when the alarm is armed/disarmed (They were hoping for a car alarm like chirp, etc). The strobe does flash to show when the entry/exit timer expires and the alarm arms but they can't see this very clearly. I'm trying to come up with a simple visual solution to show them when the alarm is armed/disarmed. Initially I've looked at the SW+ output, a
  5. The "Full Reset" button on my Veritas 8 keypad has now stopped working. I enter my user code and press the button but nothing happens. The "Reset" button works fine and I get all the usual beeps and lights as I go through the arming process, but at the final step...Nothing! I replaced the battery in the control panel, but this didn't cure the problem. Can anybody help on this. This Texecom/Veritas system is about ten years old.
  6. Hi all, I'm very new to working on intruder alarms, this being my 3rd. I modified an existing Veritas 8 system by adding a PIR and a door contact. The alarm when in walk test mode is making two very short chirps at intervals of about 2 seconds. This isn't the normal chirps it makes when the Zone two device activates in walk test mode, but much shorter chirps. There are no lit tampers, and no lit faults. When it is chirping for zone activations, the shorter chirps are absent. Is the panel just reminding me it's in walk test mode, or is there some other unspecified (in the manua
  7. Hi guys, Has anyone got any advise regarding the Texecom wireless keypads? I have recently installed a Texecom Veritas R8 control panel and intended to have two LCD RKP's, hard wired into the system. One of these RKP's is working fine, but the wire to the second is damaged and now that the house is decorated I don't want to chop into the plaster. My best solution would be if I could use a wireless keypad at this location. I am guessing that I would need a wireless receiver to then run the signal down a wire into my R8 control panel. Has anyone got any experience of adding a T
  8. Hi All, Newby here! Hit a problem with my alarm system and after checking out some of the other posts on here thought I'd join up and ask all you helpful people given the responses that seem to get posted! I've got a Veritas R8 alarm in the house, the main box is under the stairs then there's a keypad in the kitchen to set/deactivate the alarm. All's been working fine (and I ALWAYS set the alarm - full in daytime and part at night) then I came to set it the other day and the alarm just beeped at me. I've had experience with other alarm systems, and have fitted Veritas alarms in
  9. I am wanting to install a magnetic door sensor for a cupboard which is constantly monitored whether the alarm is set or unset. Ideally with a hidden switch for when I want access; understand this can be done with the zone in PA or fire mode but would it be possible to install a 3-terminal rocker switch in this or would it cause an activation when the switch was flicked? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
  10. Hi all, i have a veritas 8 compact installed proffesionally by the previous owner,we have had the house at least 5 years .it works fine, apart from when the alarm is active, it sometimes goes off .i check the pirs thats activated to no avail, it will probably do the same thing a couple of weeks later but this time it will be different pir's can any one help please.ive checked the sensors for spiders etc sometimes when we have been out when its done it i usually presume its cats or somthing? when its happened when we are a sleep i usually come down stairs expecting the worst i check thi
