Threaded View
I have just moved into a new house.  It has a paragon Plus alarm panel
fitted which i only know the limited user code for.  I need to re-
programme the alarm to allow me to leave the dogs in the lounge or
kitchen over night.  

I have read that the panel has no NVM (i take this to mean non volatile
memory) and should retun to default codes if i cut the power to the unit.

Do i have to cut the mains and disconnect the battery?  Hopefully it will
only be the mains but if it is both where will the battery be located?  
Will it be in the box on the outside of the house?

Also can anyone tell me where i can get the installers manual and also
what the default engineers code is?  I know the default for the master
and limited codes as they are both in the users mamual wich i have.

TIA

Chris

Re: Paragon Plus
This is a Worldwide Group
uk.tech.electronic-security is a uk group but you are best to post to BOTH
groups.

I Just needed to check whether you were one of our customers before we
started scrambling your programming.

If you are in Wilmslow as you say then you are not.

You say that you know the limited user code but not the master code or the
engineers code
I will assume that it is 5678 that you are using because the original
installer dropped a clanger and didnt change it.
as you are aware the original master code was 1234.

As they didnt seem to know what they were doing we will check to see if the
original engineers code is still in rather than defaulting the whole system
straight off.

Re: Paragon Plus
The default engineers code is 9999

to enter engineers mode you press

The   DOUBLE ^ button,      then 0,     then 9999

If this is the current engineers code then the fault light should start to
flash

I'm not at the house now so i cant try it.  Is it possible for me to get
the method to default and then reprogramme it?  I'm going on holiday on
sunday morning so would like to do this tonight if possible!!

The limted user code i have is not the default 5678.  I really think i
need the installers manual and the method to default the system, If nto
can you recommend anyone local to me who can come out and sort it for me?

Preferably for the price of a few pints!! :-)


Re: Paragon Plus
Try the default engineers code anyway. try it NOW if you canit wont cause
you any problems if it is wrong.

Make sure that when I say DOUBLE ^  you do press that one and not either of
the the SINGLE ^ buttons as they have a different use.

see my other post. i'm not there now and i'm going on holiday on sunday
morning!  i guess i'll just have to try and sort it out when i get back!


Re: Paragon Plus
I dont have a PDF of the manual  (which includes instructions on how to
default the programming

I want to avoid defaulting the programming if possible atm so that we can
check on the programming already installed.

To default the codes you have to default ALL programming.

Has the Back page of your engineers manual been filled in with the zones,
how they are programmed and the timers etc

The back page is filled in with the zones and 2 different arming options
(1 all sensors, 1 downstairs only)  I didnt notice anything about timers
though.

I'm going to bed in the next few minutes. is there any way i can contact
you direct when i get back from holiday next week to try and get this
sorted?

I would really appreciate your help.

p.s. i am actually in handforth (next to wilmslow) if it makes any
difference to me being one of your customers!


Re: Paragon Plus
To Default ALL the Programming
I will assume that you have located the main control unit and are not
working from a remote keypad

Remove mains power (assuming that the battery in the panel is ok then the
outside siren should NOT sound)

Loose small pozi screw at top of main control unit  (do not remove fully
only unscrew enough to allow top of front to swing forward ) you may need to
get your fingernails in as they can be a bit tight.  AS you swing it forward
it will become unattatched at the bottom (BE CAREFUL THAT THE BATTERY DOES
NOT FALL OUT AS YOU DO THIS) It should be held in place with a strap but
they often are not.

Disconnect the battery from the connectors  (at this point the External
SIREN should sound)

Hold in buttons 1 & 4 and re-connect battery &/OR mains you should now have
default codes AND programming

Ok i'll give it a try but how do i then re-programme the different PIR's
to make the entry/exit zones, immediate activation etc.  Or what is the
default programme set to?

If you could scan the manual or something i will give you an e-mail
address to send it to.

Thanks again

Chris


Re: Paragon Plus
If you can post an e-Mail Address I will scan and send but it will not be
tonight

Be Careful not to post your exact e-mail address  alter it and give me
instructions on how to correct it

Default programming is
ALL PROGRAMS

Zone 1 = Entry/Exit  (starts entry timer)

Zone 2  =Access ( switches off whilst entry timer is running to allow you to
get to the keypad)

Zones 3,4,5,6 are ALL Immediate

Entry/Exit time is 30 Seconds
Siren time is 20 minutes before re-set & re-arm.

Re: Paragon Plus
If you check the Pyronix website (www.pyronix.com) you can download Paragon
Plus USER manual. To get the INSTALLER manual you have to have login
priviliges. I don't believe these are given to home users. I can get you an
installer manual, although this will not be until Monday.

My tip would be to wait until you get the manual, then read-off and write
down the current settings before attempting to reset the panel totally. If
all else fails then you have a record of how the panel was originally setup.
