Disabling External Sounder on HKC 10 70 Panel

Recommended Posts

Can I do this temporarily while testing to check whether the panel is alarming properly (and the internal sounder can be heard ok)? I can't find the setting in the Engineer menu. Also can I use a wireless internal sounder as an audible device when doing a walk test and I'm out of the range of being able to hear a keypad?

Only thing with using a wireless siren you need to hold rear tamper in or wedge it if you walking with it 

 

The wireless keypad are very handy tho....

Sometimes I just use a mobile phone  and make a call to my land line (or use a cordless phone, and leave the wired handset off hook so it picks up sound from the keypad).

Program the external bell as something else

And yes

So there's no setting for turning it on/off? (within the services menu).

No

 

But what difference would that make? You only want to temporarily disable it 

 

So change the output or remove bell trigger and you done

Lol it's funny but a interesting DIY way of doing it 

 

You have engineers code so just remove the bell trigger and remember to put it back

Ok, I suppose that's the idea of the walk test to check whether the panel is responding to sensors, rather than arming and checking for an alarm on each sensor.
I've just installed my wireless internal sounder. In the menu, I discovered there's an entry/exit setting in "options". Is this for generating a tone on entry/exit?

Having said that , you could walk test an incorrectly setup Honeywell DT , it responds to walk test and doesn't on alarm , sounds weird but I seen it happen
