Z110 door monitor problems

Threaded View
I have used a z1100 at several homes in three states because my wife likes this model.
During Hurricane Laura this week I shut the z1100mai power switch in the alarm control box to save the alarm batteries since we lost power.

Today our power is back on on so I turned the alarm switch back on and everything is perfect except one, the door monitor.

Instead of three beeps we a door is opened, I get about 15 beeps.

Every thing else is fine.

Help

Are you ever tempted to give people bad advice like:

Them:  How do I reset the trouble.

You:  Short these pins (to reset panel.)

I never used to be, but now that I'm out of the business...

  funny you should say that..
I was called to repair an old ademco 1023 panel one time..
the original installer had placed a dead short switch across the
DC output ckt, which was used as the "turn system off" switch..
They had put a 10 ohm resistor across the actual arm/disarm
connection on the 1023..   ;-)
I never did find out if they had made a mistake in wiring or
just didn't know any better...
Oddly it didn't seem to have damaged the panel..
Oh, this one was so old it was using 6vdc indicator bulbs
to display armed and ready to arm...

That was the old Ademco 215 push button remote with the red and white indic
ator lights. I think those light bulb were 24 volt bulbs so they would last
 forever. The remotes had a keyed version too but I don't remember the part
 number to that one. Was it the # 256? Or was that the one with the silver  
front, single key and red LED and tamper switch? They ones with the red and
 white lights both came with either the push button or the 2400 flat key lo
cks or the 1300 round UL key or with a UL round key.  
Click it's armed ----- click it's disarmed.
So simple compared to today's equipment.

You should introduce your own line of simple alarms like that. Something  
for the Luddites.

Luddite Alarm Systems


LAS-1 Bells and string.
LAS-2 Bells and wires.
LAS-3 Includes everything in a LAS-1 and a LAS-2, but includes a 12 Gage  
sounder.  Only available in the south.

Speaking of Luddites, lately I think we could include New York City, Chicag
o  Portland Oregon and a few other places. If you have to destroy something
 to get your point across it's good idea to trash the businesses that provi
de jobs and serve your community ..... Right?

Well, I try not to get into political conversation on-line, but that's  
one I think warrants a lapse in judgement.  The reality is you are  
correct.  Destroying businesses and property in your home does nothing  
good for your community.

Police in many places do treat black people differently and protesting  
is also also warranted, even needed.

Most cops are decent, but there are some bad cops.  An aggressive center  
or core of cops look out for cops no matter what.  They are joined by  
the bad cops they protect, and they generate an air of pressure on good  
cops to protect all cops to hold the line in all circumstances.  Doing  
otherwise can be perceived badly and cause social problems and even  
endanger their lives.  "If you can't trust the guy going through the  
door behind you to have your back no matter what..."

My opinion.  I think cops should be paid a lot more and 1/3 of those  
serving weeded out to be replaced by new recruits.  Not just the bad  
cops, but the vocal "hold the line" types who protect bad cops under the  
guise of protecting all cops.  Cops should be held to a higher standard.  
  Its a hard job.  Its high risk.  They do have to be able to trust the  
guy who follows them through a door, but they should trust them because  
they can be trusted not to force them to compromise their values and  
morals or the law.

Black lives do matter, but the Black Lives Matter movement that is  
paired with OR joined by violence and destruction scares people.  If you  
scare people they will fight or run.  In the case of businesses after  
past riots many communities saw the businesses just didn't come back.  
Its historical fact.  They ran.  In the case of individuals its less  
predictable.  They may retreat, but if you chase them they will stop and  
fight.  They don't see that they have a choice.  This is when things get  
bad.  You wind up with a group that in some cases has been treated  
unfairly and feels they have no other options, and a loose coalition of  
individuals who feel they are being attacked.  Both feel that they have  
no choice but to fight.  I am honestly surprised we have not seen more  
situations like with the young Rittenhouse fellow.  I have my opinion on  
that specific topic, but I'll let that go.

I will tell another story.  When I was younger there was a fellow my dad  
knew who had a fight with his wife/girlfriend etc...  He left because he  
couldn't take it any more.  He just grabbed a few things and left.  One  
of those things was his hand gun.  He met up with a few guys and they  
were leaning on the back of a pickup truck shooting the breeze,  
complaining about women, and the things guys do when leaning on the back  
of a truck talking.  She came looking for him, and let into him.  She  
also attacked his having a gun.  Told him he was a big pussy.  Didn't  
have the balls to use it, and just let into him.  Whatever their fight  
was he had retreated.  He left.  Maybe she was right in whatever they  
fought about before.  The thing is she followed him and attacked him  
over and over and over and finally he had enough.  He didn't wave his  
gun around.  After standing there and taking it in front of the guys for  
minutes he just shot her.

I'll stop now, because when I get into fears and predictions of what  
might or what could happen there is no good way to sound reasonable.  
Anything I say would be reinterpreted by somebody as "against" them.  
I'm not against anybody if I have a "reasonable" choice.

  Most of us on here, at this time, could be described as over the hill.
With that said, most of us have developed a certain amount of wisdom..
And most of us have mellowed into the pudgy ole teddy bear..
So, I would be remiss if I didn't remind folks that..

"never poke the ole bear, unless you like getting your head bitten off"

"Backed into a corner", can describe many situtions, AVOID them, if at
all possible...
