I have a partially existing system with a very old 2gig Control Panel. I’ve recently added in 20+ sensors, and when I added in a 2gig TS1, even with both on 1.13 fireware, they’re not compatible.
(All fully debugged and sorted out here on this amazing forum!)
So I grabbed a brand new 2gig CP. Did everything to replace the old one.
(In fact, we even did a “back up” of the old one, although it mostly failed and only the sensor names were brought over into the new CP.)
So I will be re-programming it today. All sensors are already working & fully tested out as of the past few weeks…so any errors that come up are going to be in this step of me programming the new CP from scratch.
(Minus the sensor names themselves…which I’m grateful at least those came over as they were pretty time intensive and along with the serial numbers, were what took the most time programming in the first time)
PS - The cell phone test worked on my brand new 3G cell module, and I also have a new 900 MHz Transceiver installed.
So now to my questions. If you can help me answer as much of this as possible, it would save me many minutes/hours of install/debug time today.
I extend my gratitude in advance for your help!
I currently have the following equipment:
a - 2gig window/door sensors, on perimeter windows.
b - 2gig window/door sensors, on main entry/exit doors.
c - 2gig window/door sensors, on perimeter entry/exit doors.
d - 2gig Passive Infrared Motion Detectors (2GIG-PIR1-345)
e - Honeywell 5853 GB Detector.
f - Ademco/HW door sensor. (Not sure on model, was previously installed. It spans a 4-6" custom door install)
g - Ademco/HW motion sensor. (Not sure on model, was installed when we moved in)
What loop #'s should I set for all of them?
What equipment codes should I set for the existing Ademco/HW devices? (Just f & g - I know for e as I purchased it myself.)
Will I be able to do a “Shift -> Learn” for the serial numbers for the motion detectors? If so, how? If not, any advice on how to best learn/program these in?
Considering I just setup service with Surety, and that I have a mix of older equipment, and some just a few weeks “old”, what “Equipment Age” do I set for all of the sensors? How do I determine which is old or new?
(All “new” because new to Surety, or all based on physical equipment age/install date, or etc.)
…and I’ve never known how to correctly set any of these:
5a) Dialer Delay
5b) Sensor Reports
5c) Dialer Supervised
Thank you for any/all input you can provide!
