Questions about Update Cable, TS1 and monthly services

  1. What is the difference between the 2GIG-UPCBL2 and the 2GIG-UPCBL1 firmware cable?
  2. If the TS-1 keypad has a different version than the 2GIG Control panel, should I upgrade it first to match the panel, or can I just upgrade it to the most recent version?
  3. Are daily/monthly tests included in the Basic DIY monitoring package?

1.) The 2GIG-UPCBL2 and the 2GIG-UPCBL1 firmware cable are identical. The only difference being that the 2GIG-UPCBL2 includes the 4 pin extender needed to upgrade the TS1.

2.) What I have always done in that instance is actually removed the TS1 from the control panel, upgraded the firmware on both the control panel and TS1 to the newest version, then re-added the TS1.

3.) will test your system daily and check to make sure your communication module is communicating properly.
