"Entry Fault" message - SW1070 Panel

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So I'm still getting an "entry fault" SMS message when I open my back door and allow the entry delay to time out and the panel to activate an alarm. Is this a normal message, or due to a real fault caused by e.g. bouncing contacts and not a single clean opening of the reed switch? Wiring is good. I get three messages, "Alarm", "Entry fault", "Unset". I only expect two of these.

Sometimes I get the problem with my front door too. The door and jamb are stuck and I have to shake the door to get it open, so the reed switch would alternatively open and close multiple times. I think maybe this is just a not very appropriate choice of words for the message (it's not really a "fault"). Can I turn this message off while still keeping normal reporting of faults (e.g. mains failure) in the settings for the communication board? A message about the alarm and the zone it's on and a second SMS to tell me that the alarm has been unset is sufficient.

Cos it's a timeout it's telling you. If you read the log it will give you the order

So basically this message is normal and not a fault?

Dude ask yourself a question 

 

You set your alarm , and a gorilla breaks in from that door 

 

What you expect alarm to do?

 

Timeout and send entry fault alarm

Normally you would disarm during entry time. Bear in mind most alarms are false are user error, sending the entry fault / fail to disarm in time makes sense
