I thought they did it to make the panels compatible with DST in other countries besides the US.

Like DSC PC 5010 that doesn't have daylight saving time adjust or PC 5020 that will have it forever wrong from now on and no "fix" for it either.
One more thing to thank Canada for.

Yes, but it is still rotten Ademco, sorry I mean Honeywell stuff. Vista 250 FB is a prime example of the apex of hideous. Maybe the only large panel worse than that is the DSC 4020. I know there are lots of both types out there, but there are lots of rats and cockroaches out there too. It doesn't make either class any good.

That was quick. What are you using now, Russ? js

So's DMP, there's GMT offset in programming and also option to sync with reciever time if desired.

I appologize for posting directly to Robert B. I didn't realize it was an issue to direct a question to someone on a news-group. I did speak with Robert yesterday of which we had a lengthy conversation. I haven't had a chance to get into the panel to reprogram it as of yet, but I hope to very shortly. I'm not sure where I went wrong with trying to adjust the time via keypad...but something went astray. I probably shouldn't have used the 6 digit master code duh...

Doesn't GE make refrigerators?

It's no major problem but Jim's point was that the conversation became a personal one rather than a newsgroup discussion. That happens from time to time.
When you do contact me and I'll try to assist.
Napco panels are a pain to program by keypad. Most professionals I know would rather use the software. It's just too easy to screw up by keypad. Fortunately, it's usually no trouble to correct them.

That beats Bosch. You have to set a new date in option 13 and 14 on the schedule every year.

Yes, but not with clocks in the door.

Actually, you have nothing to apologize for. As has often been the case, this Newsgroup is the only way for Robert's customers to "vent" about the shoddy communication and the difficulties in trying to get after sales service. Why not find a friendly "local" alarm guy? The last time I saw a warranty with as many "conditions" as BH's, it was stuck on the side of an ADT panel. Check out his BBB report too. And for you all you guys making "nice" with the Basshole, "kiss my grits".

Sad to say I don't have the brain RAM to deal with Radx stuff anymore...I have to set a Outlook reminder so I can find my sox in the morning.
The DMP receiver time synch works fine if your CS is the same time zone as the client, otherwise not! So I just use the GMT offset, and we are in the TZ (Twilight Zone) here...we don't spring forward or fall back..so it don' matta to us.
