Galaxy Dimension RF Portal + TCPA1B fobs

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Quick question. I have a friend who has a Galaxy Dimension 520 panel (he has a large property, and wanted multiple data lines due to lots of buildings) who wanted some panic fobs for his elderly parents. I had a look online and found the C079-2 RF Portal was compatible with his panel and that the TCPA1B fobs were also if he was running V3 or newer f/w on the portal.

 

We have updated his panel f/w to v7, and I can see in diagnostics that the RF portal is on V3, but when I try and learn the zone it asks me to activate the tamper, but the fob doesn't have a tamper!

 

Can anyone advise how we can get these working?

 

Thanks in advance!

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Lol, thanks guys. Tried here on my Galaxy 48 (6.83), but my RF Portal is V2.10 so no dice. Shall have to grab a newer C079-2 with V3 firmware and try before I next pop down!

But it works on the 48 aswell but you have to update it's firmware pretty sure has to be 7+ version

Ah, might be easier to just wait then. I don't have a recent copy of RSS so rather hard to update my panel.

The 520 was just updated to 7.02. I guess that's the same F/W across the board.

Might have been 7.03 - yep, well, beer tokens. The chap who runs selfmon sent us a SPI key with it on there as his 520 had some stupid ADT firmware without any fire zone type.

 

If I did more of this I'd invest in the programmer and an SPI key of my own, but it's just my alarm here at home, the workshop and my mates place I look after now! Used to do way more but stopped being self employed 4 years ago and passed all the others off to other companies.
