New Home -BHS-2000D- 1998 install

    Hi. Interested in some direction/first steps/FAQ assistance.

    Just moved into a house with a Brinks BHS 2000D control panel and two
    DCU-602 keypads. Keypad display says "System not ready. Call 1-800..".


    The house is really wired up with motion/door/window sensors and I'd
    like to get this system running. (Plus we have a newly mobile toddler
    that just learned how to open doors!)

    I'm not interested in paying a monthly monitoring fee nor paying a
    Brinks tech to come out and plug in a few numbers on the panel for
    $400. Just interested in real basic sensor activated alarming.

    Where do you recomend I start? I've read that one could just replace
    the console with something else. I'm open to that, but would all the
    sensors and the two display's need replaced too? How standard and
    interoperable are consoles/ sensors/ displays/ wiring?
    Any help would be great!

    Thanks

    You will have to replace the entire system. Brinks systems are not keypad
    programmable. The good part is that you get to reuse all the wiring &
    contacts, which are 100% compatible with most systems out there.

    I think Ademco stopped manufacturing them last year. But I am sure there are
    a few missle silos in Nevada somewhere loaded with overruns... :)

    At a meeting earlier this year with the ADI branch manager, Ademco regional
    sales rep and the (gorgeous) inside sales girl from Louisville I learned
    that they plan to drop the SE and PS versions in favor of the P. The
    Vista-20P will be made compatible with the 6270 touch-screen keypads,
    obviating the Vista-20PS. That's why I only offer special pricing on the P
    series kits. The others will be phased out.

    There was no mention of dropping the Vista-10 entirely. I assume it will
    continue, probably as a Vista-10P, but we didn't discuss that panel so I'm
    not sure.

    The 15P/20P is already compatible with the 6270 with the v3 panels

    You forgot the MT, WT, BAY etc suffix

    I wish they'd drop this alpha suffix thing and just make new model numbers

    The point of the change, as I understood it, is to do away with all the
    suffixes except P.

    That is not what you wrote, dickweed. You wrote "The
    Vista-20P will be made compatible with the 6270 touch-screen keypads, "

    You are such a jerk. All you wanted to do was get your advert in. You know
    nothing about Ademco.

    Not to break up further fribbless dribble, but I chuckle every time I hear
    that. Cracker. I was waiting to eat at an Outback a few weeks ago when I
    heard this teenage white kid, and another teenage black kid verbally
    throwing down on each other (what else is new) when I heard the black kid
    call the white kid....not cracker....but Pocket. Me and my buddy looked at
    each other and said "Pocket?!?"....then it dawned on me, most pants pockets
    are white...
    Hope this new information on getto slang is helpful....it sucks getting
    older...
    Later Pockets

    It's a double entendre. He's a racist whose first name is Graham. :^)

    Pocket? I wonder if the white kid realized what the other fellow meant.

    I'll assume he did. Me and my buddy had this discussion aloud, and the black
    kids turned to us laughed, and said "you got it!". They said that after I
    referenced pulling out my pockets to show my buddy. It was a good laugh. Had
    we been 20 years younger....it might have went a little different.

    Thanks for asking. Your pal Fat-Ass finds it necessary to interject incorrect
    information, and get his URL posted. I find his blatant advertising SPAM and
    against the group's FAQ (which you admit to never reading). I was also pointing
    out an error he made. You may not like the tone in which I did so, but since
    you have no background about why I did you really are the one rudely
    interjecting, aren't you?

    Well that's part of the problem. Every so often some newbie strolls in here and
    perceives the 'problem' as everyone else except Bass. Remember how nice it was
    when you came in and Bass was noticeably absent? Everyone got along just fine.

    >- it's what I see *now* that I react to...so sod off dood.


    That's why I told you in another thread "you ain't seen nothin' yet". Bass will
    try extra hard to stay on your good side because Lord knows he doesn't need more
    enemies. But you wait....
