I am trying to take a phone line off my Napco panel but when I disconnect it the keypad shows communication error and beeps from time to time. Can someone tell me how to remove the phone line so that this error messages stops appearing. I do not have central station.
Why do you want to remove it? If it's not bothering you, leave the connection undisturbed and use the system as a "local". If it is being monitored, then the CS will be contacting you. If you explain that you're not interested in monitoring service, they'll arrange to have the communicator disabled.
Be careful. Some alarm companies have been known to disable the entire alarm when told the homeowner wants to discontinue the monitoring service. This isn't too common but it does happen. One strong indication that the alarm company is less than honorable is if they don't offer to give you the programming access code without a fee.
A lot of things happen (sunspots, coffee spills, snow storms, assaults with simulated guns).
So charging for a service call to disconnect the monitoring, defaulting the panel's communications parameters, and probably instructing the new homeowner into how to program his own user codes, etc. is, in your opinion, "less than honourable". Right.
Actually, I was addressing that to your potential victim.
You're probably one of the ones who do it.
.=2E. rip-off "professional" alarm installers, automatically renewing, multi-year monitoring contracts that cost 3-5 times what they should, etc. The list goes on and on.
All of that takes a clerk like Leuck less than 10 minutes by modem.
Heh, heh, heh. The vast majority never do any of that on disconnect. They just disable reporting by modem and then refuse to do anything, even for pay, unless the victim signs a 3-5 year, over-priced monitoring contract.
You spell remarkably like a certain dishonest, expatriate who abandoned the USA we all know. Snap-rolled any 737's this week?
Cute. My BBB report doesn't look anything like yours. I understand yours was so full up of victims they had to spool a few off to make room.
Nope. Guess again. I don't install or monitor residential security systems.
I'd say it's about as long as your BBB report.
Hmmm. Is Leuck a "clerk"? Is Frank? Do you really know, or are you just instigating again?
The "vast majority" do no such thing on a disconnect or otherwise. For every alarm company you care to mention that forces a customer to sign a 3-5 year "over-priced monitoring contract" just ot get service on a local alarm, I'm sure I can name five that don't.
You're an idiot, Bass. First off, you're calling someone you don't even know "dishonest", and following that up with some nonsense about his being "expatriate". Secondly, I'm posting from Vancouver, B. C. That's in Canada. We have this thing about spelling words like "honourable" correctly up here. Third, I've never snap-rolled a 737. I know of someone who was _in_ one that inverted briefly though (I've even seen the movie).
I've seen the pictures of that. The movie I'm referring to is the one Frank showed me one night. That involved a 737. I do remember commenting that it wasn't the best "action flick" I'd ever seen. For one thing, there wasn't any scantly clad young lady in the picture and the hero was partly bald. :)
