Hi all,

I have a self installed that went into alarm status while I was testing
it out and started dialling the numbers I put into it. Since the
numbers were just my cell phone etc... The 832 has a trouble light
engaged, that no matter what I do - won;t go away.

How do I reset the little bugger and get rid of the error light?

Thanks.

You're getting a "fail to communicate" error.  You can't just put a cell phone
number into the receiver number slot.  RTFM.

Re: DSC 832 - how to reset?


The trouble light will reset when it makes a call that does not require a
response e.g a pager.

I also have a DSC832, and after some playing around, I came up with a
solution that works quite well.


Here's how it works:

-------------------------------------------------

When me or my wife disable the alarm, with Code 1, no call is made by the
system.



When the kids get home and disable the alarm, with Code 2, I receive one
ring/buzz on my cell phone.



When the alarm is triggered I receive two calls, if I attempt to answer any
one of the calls I hear a series of tones, separated by short pauses.



The trouble light does not come on after the system makes any of the above
calls.

-------------------------------------------------



The Settings:

-------------------------------------------------

Sec. 160  ->  002

Sec. 161  ->  010



Sec. 301  ->

   D<my cell number>EEF

Sec. 302  ->

   D<my cell number>EEE1E2E1E2E1E2E1E1F



Sec. 310  ->  2222



Sec. 320  ->

   21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28



Sec. 344  ->

   FF 88 FF FF FF FF FF FF



Sec. 360  ->  05 05

Sec. 361  ->  x1xxxxxx (1=ON, x=OFF)



Sec. 363  ->  x1xxxxxx



Sec. 365  ->  1xxxxxxx



-------------------------------------------------



The above settings assume the following:

a) An alarm company does not monitor the system.

b) You have a basic eight-zone system (PC5010).

c) You do not have the special dialer/speech module installed.



FYI: I have also configured the DSC832 to monitor the garage doors for
open/closed status, without triggering the alarm. Post here if you want
details.

Here's hopin' you have system smoke detectors installed.  It would be down
right embarrasin' to get a call you interpret as a burg signal and come home
to a pile of smoking rubble...

Fire Captain:  "We've got good news and bad news.  The bad news is we got
the call too late to save the structure.  The good news is we rescued the
cat and the dog and Fireman Jones has your goldfish in his helmet."

Re: DSC 832 - how to reset?


Bob,

I'd love to learn about how you set up your DSC832 to monitor your
garage doors.

Thanks!



Re: DSC 832 - how to reset?


Configuring the DSC832 to monitor garage doors
-------------------------------------------------

Note: This solution, codes etc. are for the DSC Power 832 PC5010 Version
2.0.

1. Connect the garage contact (I used an AMSECO Overhead Door Contact) to
it's own zone input.

2. Connect PGM 1 or PGM 2 directly to the above zone input (use a resistor
if you have resistors on your other zones). I used PGM 1 because it's not as
flexible as PGM 2, which I'll be using for something else later.

3. Program the garage door zone definition to 'Delay Stay/Away Zone' (06).

4. Program the garage door zone attributes to the 'Delay Stay/Away Zone'
defaults, plus Chime=Y (1-2-3-4-5-6-X-X).

5. Program the PGM output to 'Away Armed' (17).

6. Test it works.
-------------------------------------------------

How it works:
-------------------------------------------------
With the alarm system disarmed, the garage door zone will chime on
opening/closing. The garage door open/closed status can be seen on the
keypad (I have the LED type so I can see it from the other end of the hall).

With the alarm system in 'Stay Armed' mode, the garage door zone will chime
on opening/closing. The garage door open/closed status can be seen on the
keypad. The alarm will not be triggered, as the zone is automatically
bypassed.

With the alarm system in 'Away Armed' mode, the PGM output will "close" the
garage door zone. The garage door open/closed status indicator will show the
door as being closed, and no chime will sound (you will be out, so it
doesn't make any difference anyway). The alarm will not be triggered when
you return home, open the garage door, and disarm the alarm.
-------------------------------------------------

Remember, this solution is to allow easy monitoring of the garage door
open/close status, without having to run outside and look.

To have the garage door become part of the alarm monitoring again, simply
change the PGM output to Command Output Option #4 (22), and change the zone
settings as required.

We have two garage doors, so I'll be using two diodes to connect the zones
to the PGM output, this allows for independent monitoring of the doors. That
way I'll be able to see which door is open/closed.

This configuration has worked extremely well for us, and on several
occasions has stopped us from leaving a door open all night.

At my house, I'm usually the last person to go to bed...   I always check
all the doors are secure, and since my den is right next to the driveway
with a great view of the garages, I know when a door's open (also know when
my two sons get home).  :-))

Who told you can enter a cell phone number where the alarm receiver number goes?
You're getting a 'fail to communicate' error.  What you're trying to do wont
work.

RTFM.

Re: DSC 832 - how to reset?


Someone else posted recently that you can insert nulls in the first
reporting number and your cell phone into the alternate position 2. This
will avoid the "fail to communicate" error.  Haven't tried it myself.  No
warranty for this info.

A Global keypad you have to select the partition you want.  Set the keypad
for partition 1.  Put your smokes back on partition 1.  Keep everything in
partition 1 and you'll "see" it all as it happens.

Take out the "1's".  You're communicating in "pager" mode.  You'll need
about four pauses (E's) unless you're slow answering your phone.  If it goes
to a voice box, watch how long it takes for the phone to finish ringing,
transmit your "away" message and get the "beep" for someone to actually
leave a message.  Insert the appropriate number of pauses.

Don't program "A".  Use a straight account code like "1234".  Delete the
second account code.

Set 362 back to 1xxxxxxx (smoke alarms on 1st telephone #)

You're not capable of "listening in".  That's a CS (Central Station)
setting.  Leave it disabled.




RE: DSC 832 - how to reset?
We have a DSC 832 system - It is hardwired in our system but does not go anywhere - We had a power failure and now signal 3 - 5 - 6- 7 are on and we cannot get the alarm to set.  Any suggestions?
