Anyone else found the new ProSYS Plus software to be flaky, badly designed and laid out to make it as complicated as possible to program without a laptop?

 

The BUS system in particular is really bad, personally I have only second fixed and commissioned these systems. System 1 was cabled in CAT5e (apparently recommended by Risco tech)? had to double up power cores to get voltage above 10v at the keypad. System 2 was cabled in alarm cable and I had to double up on the power cores again and run two separate data lines within the same cable splitting the detectors up from the keypads … it was the last resort and only thing that worked. however, 3 keypads on the system but only 2 show up. if 3 show up then nothing works. Metered the cable, fine, cable length less than 50m (estimated as I did not first fix) appears to be no interference. Every time I did a BUS device re-learn it changed what it saw for the keypads. conclusion.. bad cable or bad software. personally I think flaky software, would love to hear your thoughts/experiences.
