New member here and only just done my introduction. Intruder alarms not my game but have purchased a second hand control panel. Pretty much setup but have a couple of issues. Any member conversant with these panels then please PM me regarding IP and PTSN communication.

Hello and welcome, if you are trade then have a read of the forum rules and apply for trade status. Over on that side of the forum there's a plethora of information. 

 

Oh, and you can't PM yet as a new member. 

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Hi and welcome, those Risco panels were not very popular, they looked nice, the app was good, but the mk 1s were short lived and we never bothered with the mk 2s

Actually bought it on the strength of the app. Since found out the ownership can’t be deleted and registered to a new owner. I’m going to use it while I research an alternative. I had wireless PIRs so was looking for something I could use the kit already in the house.

If you got it purely on rf strength you are way wrong even pyronix has more tx power than risco (it's near the bottom) even visonic has more tx power. 

Using what you have I get but if it's steam powered it's probably best to replace. I used to rate the 1 way scantronic 4xxx stuff but that was in the 90s rf is way different now

He said app, not RF strength, clean your ears out!

That puzzled me too. I’ve now been here long enough to understand my ‘upgraded’ alarm is a dinosaur. So what would be regarded by members as a decent system with app access?

Reusing the RF kit you already have probably means staying with Risco. Looking over the horizon probably mostly known Texecom and Honeywell and bit less known there's Satel which tends to stay way more up to date with current tech.

Yes mate that’s what I did. Probably laid out £150 to get back 100% again. Thought it was ok instead of £400-£500? Know jack **** about intruder but spent 30 years doing fire alarms so I’m just ahead on that front
