Keypad and pir upgrade for scantronic 9651

Great thanks 

What PIRs do you plan to install. I reccomend pyronix pet PIRs HOWEVER  pet PIRs are NOT fool proof. You can still get false alarms from something such as a cat jumps on a table

 

If you have pets i recommend using perimeter protection

The system already has optex rx 40 just swapping to the same but pet tolerant as I now have a small cat

I reccomend using perimeter detection. We had a false alarm from these already

It’s something I’m thinking of but reality is there is someone in the house almost all the day it’s more to keep insurance happy and a bit more piece of mind I live in a safe area as safe as can be

If I added perimeter sensors I’d have to look into expanders and things and the new sensors would have to be wireless as I’ve just finished refurbish and decorating the house

At least you don't have a master blaster in the loft and a quad bellbox outside. You can hear it go off from over a mile away

I learned about the master blaster as i tested the system not knowing there was a master blaster when i moved in and i couldnt hear anything for the rest of the day. It also shredded a towel that was in the loft

The new Eaton 9943 keypad is fully backward compatible with all of the 9651 panels.

buy the panel as a kit with a keypad as it’s within a few ££ of buying the keypad on its own.

Wired is always the best option. However radio systems are ok.  (I use innovonics wireless stuff  but that's only for castle caretech)  dont really use wireless unless i have to.  I mainly install wired systems as thy are far more reliable

Ah. In that case, it would be best to tell your insurer you have no alarm at all.

 

you to insurer 'we've been burgled'

insurer to you 'no problem sir, I'm guessing the alarm was set?'

you 'er, yes, expect so'

insurer 'no problem sir, we will get the logs inspected, and could you have the installation and latest service documents to hand'

you 'i maintain it myself'

insurer 'yay! no payout sir, not covered, check your t+cs, trebles all round lads!'

 

You rarely get ANY meaningful discount for a bells only alarm, they usually just ask the question as a get-out-of-jail-free card hoping it isn't properly maintained.

 

If you didn't tell them you had an alarm, they can't ask if it was set, and cannot deny your claim.

So, I've decided to take my work back underground.... to stop it falling into the wrong hands

They should really change the name

What do you mean by that  al-yeti

One for insurance and one for piece of mind 

 

Meaning fixing yourself cannot give you piece of mind and insurers will never be happy , no offence
