Not much TBF, might have always chosen Scanny intruder but never really went with Menvier for fire, fitted a few JSBs in the past.

It has a issue with the power supply.  I have bought a new transformer for it.  I plan to install it in my shed

Yellow means fault. It also opens the zone 20200102_095144.thumb.jpg.a74a983ee8c7d845aeab1841646f0de0.jpg    What happened here.  Why is it INSIDE the wall

My mf200 has a strange issue where the panel wont reset the sounders after a activation of a zone and resetting a call point.   The only way to reset is to disconnect power and reconnect power

Already tried. The relay gets stuck on. Only way to reset it is turning the power off then on again

@MrHappy. I have wired the isolator to my sheds fuse box.  In the regulations it says you need to put the panel on a non RCD protected circuit. However my sheds fuse box has a RCD

 

And yes i installed thos fuse box

RCD from 2019, MCBs from 1989!

 

The regs discourage the use of 'new colour' black as neutral to avoid confusion with the previous colours.

 

They recommend that grey is used as Neutral with appropriate sleeving whenever a 3 core / 3 phase 'new' colour cable is used for e.g. a fan isolator or SWA supply etc...
