Welp, just got around to setting up my new IQ4 panel with the “new” PG9WLSHW8 still on v1.1. Wired up an HSM2108 expander because it was only $25 and worth a shot. And indeed it continues to the blink module enrollment red LED despite the takeover itself Auto Learning just fine with its 8 original zones. Interesting it chose “Zone 4” thru “Zone 12” for text labels. Yes, I also upgraded the panel to 4.1.0 as well, deleted, and Auto’d the PG9 all over again.
Also, am I to assume the HSM2108 instructions about enrolling its serial # in “section  ” are DSC settings that the IQ4 would be taking care of behind the scenes?
OK, so it is May now. Are any of the PG9s in Surety inventory now getting firmware v1.2 (if I convince myself to buy a new one and I guess eBay this one off)? No, I really don’t want two PG9s on the wall just to get a few extra zones when the little HSM2108 fits so perfectly in that side clip of the PG9 case designed for it
