I appreciate the group's existence. I have read a lot of the posts and I think I will learn a lot by just being able to read and exchange postings. I do have a couple of questions.
How do I get the new post screen to be full width so that I don't to hit a end-of-line Return key in order to keep the text in the viewable area of the screen? I have not had to do that since I last operated a KSR-33 Teletype Terminal in the 70's.
Is there any way the forum owner can change the lay out at the bottom of the new post screen? I took a long time to write and then edit a previous version of this message and then, while trying to "tab-over" as an indentation, I accidentally skipped to the "Post Message" button and whoops!, it was gone. Maybe, if you can put at least one intermediary box in between the last text in a new post and the "Post Message" box, dolts like me would not post an incomplete posting and not be able to find it to edit it.
I am about to have a home alarm system installed by a pro dealer. They will be installing a DSC QP6-1-433 Kit. To make a long story (my original post was more detailed and much longer) short, can anyone tell me:
- What is in the kit, ie., exactly which components?
- Is this kit an older product? I can't find it anywhere on the DSC site or in any DSC literature.
- Do I need to try to get my dealer to change to another DSC kit?
Opinions are great, but I would really appreciate feedback from those who are very familiar with this kit and/or how DSC markets such a kit.
the kit is out of production by as long as a year or two. I see the current kits are something like the 632 or 832 or Kit-120.
I have subsequently purchased a chunk of additional DSC and compatible components and sensors and I do not want to go to the hassle and expense to have the QP6 kit and all the additional items installed and then find out the components are no longer supported by DSC or my dealer. (Note that I do realize this kind of crap happens and seems to happen fairly regularly with DSC.)
Any informative feedback, especially the detailed listing of the kit contents would be appreciated.
