    Hi,
    According to the Ademco sight, it should program just like a Vista
    20. In programming field *56 is the zone programming, but using an
    alpha keypad is almost a necessity if you don't do it regularly. Hope
    that helps.

    Thanks for the reply Michael.
    The Guy i got it from put it in and set it that it will dial a bogus
    #.. i just installed a new motion in my shed and want to set it up
    cause someone stole my $250. Trimmer.. i don't have an alpha keypad
    and have read but don't understand the papers from Ademco's site.. i
    guess i should just get and installer in here and do it or show me..
    is there a way to reset or default the Installer code? default is 4112
    according to papers.. but it wont work.. i have 3 different keypads
    hooked up in 3 diff rooms.. but don't think there alpha..

    Thanks again..

    Hi
    If he set a bogus # in there to dial, it will try to dial, and then
    when it fails, it will show comm fail or "FC" on the keypad. To make
    it local only, you'd need to blank out the phone number fields and the
    account number fields. If you have an alpha keypad, you'll see the
    words "Disarmed" And "Ready to Arm" on it. Anyway. if you don't know
    the installer's code, no problem. Power the system down (unhook the ac
    power and battery). Power it up a few seconds later, and you'll see
    "d1" on the keypad ("Busy - Standby on an Alpha). Within 50 seconds,
    get to a keypad and press the * and # at the same time. If it's not
    locked out, it will go to field 20 (20 on the display). Make sure to
    press *20 then a new four digit code. That will become the new
    installer code. to VIEW an entry, press # followed by the field
    number. (Pressing #20 will SHOW you, one digit at a time, the current
    installer code) pressing * before a field will let you edit the
    contents, pressing # will let you view the entries... except for
    zones. That is a different ballgame. I do have a thought. Zones 7 and
    8 are defaulted as motion zones, and most installers are lazy in that
    if the zone isn't used, they'll strap a resistor across it and leave
    it programmed. So, they may already be programmed for you. IF you need
    more info let me know.
    Michael

    Re: Ademco Alarm Panel Question (0/1)

    Thanks Michael.. you have been a big help.. but yes i do need help with the zones.. i attached pics
    of the way it is hooked up.. i Hooked up Zone 5 with out resistor.. wasn't sure which on to put it
    on.. as you may already know zone 5 is Slot 15 (HI) and 16 (LO) .. what I'm really confused on other
    than the Resistor.. is programming the zones.. cause as you know that you have
    Zone Desc - zone# - Zone type - Part'n # - Report Code (RC) - TYPE - TIME
    On Page 4 and 5 of the programming form, it shows how to do it but what zone type should i use..
    for Shed part would be 1, report code (HEX) ??? .. Loop Input type Hardwired (HW),, Response time
    would be #1 for 350msec or should i use something else?..

    Let me see if i have this right..
    I would put in Installer Code + 8 + 0 + 0 *56 + 05 + 07 + 1 + 0005 + 1
    for Zone 5 + Type 24hr Audible + Part 1 + Hex zone 05 + HW is automatic and response time is 1 for
    350msec... would this be correct? and which side do i put the resistor on the Protective Loop or
    Closed Circuit?.. Thanks so much..

    Re: Ademco Alarm Panel Question (0/1)

    first i havent heard of an ademco AM100, is it new/old? How many zones
    does it have and i imagine from your post it has partitions? Do you
    mean a Vista 100??

    Anyway, what exactly are you trying to do, stop if from sending
    signals over the phone, or from saying FC or Comm Failure on the
    Keypad???

    Let me know, been installing ademco for over 5 years so i may be able
    to help (cant promise :)

    email me as i dont check this regularly and it doesnt use my regular
    email.

    Re: Ademco Alarm Panel Question (0/1)

    Hey,
    Ok, the resistor can be anywhere on the zone wire between terminal
    15 and 16. It's designed to be an end of line resistor to supervise
    the loop (in case the line is shorted together). It could be put right
    under one of the terminals, and some installers do it that way. The
    choice is up to you. As long as the wire comes out of one terminal,
    through the resistor, through the motion detector relay (C and NC),
    and to the other terminal. I can post or email some crude drawings if
    it would help (remove NOSPAM and extra .com from my email address to
    write directly)

    As far as zone programming, if you don't have an alpha keypad, it
    will be tough, but I could try to walk you through it down step by
    step. Do you have a copy of the installation manual? I don't recall<g>
    Basically, the Zone Desc is the zone number (In your case Zone 5),
    Zone Type is whichever you want (a 4 or a 10 would probably be the
    best option for a motion) Part'n # would be a 1 (everything else is
    probably on one) Report Code has to do with calling into a central
    station (leave or set to 00), Input type will be 01 (for zones on the
    panel, you cannot change it), response time should be left at 350ms

    What about the guy who put it in. Have you tried getting him to
    program it for you?

    Sorry, I just looked over your post more closely (it's late,
    sorry<g>)

    Installer Code + 8+0+0+*+56+0+05*+*+10*+*+1*+*+0000*+*+1*+* (OK,
    at this point, "06" should come up on the display, which means you
    have gone through zone 5's programming, and would be about to continue
    to zone 6. When you SEE 06, press 00* to exit zone programming, then
    *99 to exit programming altogether. There... simple, right? :)
    This caveat... I am doing this ENTIRELY from memory right now (no
    visual cues, only the power of my mind.... be afraid... be very
    afraid<g>. Honestly, the only field you need to alter is the zone type
    (make it a 10), and if you press * after that, it will eventually get
    you to the "06" which is safe ground (getting out IS correct, I'm not
    sure about every singe * in the zone programming itself<g>)

    If you need more help, let me know!

    Thank You SO MUCH... i will try that tonight when i get home.. i have to leave for work now..
    already late.. but i do have the programming form from ademco's website.. so thanks.. will let you

    Re: Ademco Alarm Panel Question (0/1) - V20pf.pdf (0/2)

    Enter like this once in program mode.

    *56 (Zone Programming)

    05*
    *
    04 (ZONE TYPE) - you will see something, either 00 or a zone type such
    as 04, 10 etc if it was previously programmed.

    *

    1 (PARTITION) - on a 6128 keypad you will not see this, just star
    through

    *

    1111 (REPORT CODES) - if it is new zone, it will be 00, just enter
    your report codes, we use 1's for all report codes down here.

    *
    *
    *

    completes programming of that zone, you will not see anything on a
    6128 keypad, just keep staring through until you come to the next
    zone, 06, then 00 to exit.

    Exit programming mode
    *99

    Put resistor on LOW side, so the reistor for zone 5 & 6 are together
    on the same screw. #16

    Tie the wire to the resistor, (example: if you are using yellow and
    green on the other end) yellow OR green can go either way around, one
    to the resistor end, twist it on, the other to the screw on, so say
    you put yellow on the resistor on screw #16, put green on screw # 15.

    Thats all the re is to it.

    Test the zone by faulting it.

    Re: Ademco Alarm Panel Question (0/1) - V20pf.pdf (0/2)

    Assuming this IS an SE version you missed the first step after entering zone
    programming which is either the "Set to Confirm" or "Program Tool?" prompt.

    I would never consider walking someone who knows very little about the panel
    through zone programming WITHOUT a proper keypad

    Thanks Rory,,
    It worked... yippieee.. and i used zone type 3.. cause it is a shed i want it active.. but is there
    a way to make it arm even when the system is not armed.. ?.. but anyways.. thanks.. i feel better
    now.. that its safer out there.. i still miss my Echo Trimmer...
    Thanks again.. you all have been a pleaser to work with.. and i like reading the other posts..
