Twenty+ years of doing welfare checks on clients...today my worst fear  
was realized. Checking on neighbor/client's welfare, I found her dead on  
the floor - natural causes - Nasty Sunday.

Re: Nasty Sunday


No, it was at her house, she was house sitting a her son's house...also =
a client. She wouldn't have had time anyway,  I think she died on her =
way from the bed to the floor, doesn't look like she moved after she hit =
the floor...probably died instantly.

Sad..really shook me up too.. been trying do deal with this all day.

I have seen my share of death...mostly old friends or people I knew from the
neighborhood dying from drug overdoses in NYC. After a few, you get use to
it.

Re: Nasty Sunday


Me too, I'm from NY originally, but I never get used to it. I was an EMT =
in NYC for a while, my wife is ER charge nurse...I think she's a little =
more hardened to it than I am though.

I seem to have flash memory images burned into my personal RAM of every =
doa I've ever seen. Still have images from 30 years ago.

Re: Nasty Sunday


Worst for me was a person I knew from the neighborhood who was usually high
on drugs...robbed my wife at gunpoint of her engagment ring...about one
month later he accidentially shoots himself in the groin...He was found dead
on his sofa with my wife's ring on his pinky finger. He must have been there
a few days...

Needless to say, I got the ring back a few weeks later, thanks to a some
friends in the NYPD.

Re: Nasty Sunday

Hey, do you know if old 4140xmp has an internal event buffer? I don't =
send o/c's unless resident is a snowbird...I wanted to see if I could =
tell when she armed it last.

Gee, I don't know.  I quickly looked through the 4140XMPT manual (note the
"T") and found no reference to an event buffer so I kind of doubt it.
Personally, I think you should try to let it go.  You did what you could to
help her while she was here.  She's gone now and fretting over how and when
it happened will only gnaw at you.

How old was she, by the way?

Re: Nasty Sunday


Yah. You're right.
She was about 78-80ish maybe.

Sorta, it has a 10-day event buffer that erases after 10 days, you can view
it with installer code + 0, it will read off the last 10 days of alarms,
troubles etc but won't tell you when they happened.

You exit with installer code + off however when you do that it resets that
buffer so it will be empty when you try getting back in, can't read it by
downloading either



Re: Nasty Sunday


I just wanted to know when it was armed...cause I didnt have panel =
programmed to send o/c's - don't need alarm history.

In fact not sure I even want to know anymore, I'm trying to forget the =
whole thing.

Thanks though.

Re: Nasty Sunday


From what I've seen in the docs all it will tell you is what was set off but
not when, very primative like the old DSC 1550/2550/3000 panels
