    Hi Alarm Guru,

    I have just recently diyed an FBI xl 2t alarm for my house. Every
    thing is working fine, except that I cannot disarm / arm remotely in
    the event that it is triggers the alarm when lightning strike or kids
    play foot ball at the back lane.

    Any advice ? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Note : The house is a terrace house and system not connected to
    central monitoring service.

    How would disarming remotely help? --- "someone" somewhere will call you
    wherever and you'll remotely disarm it?

    Just program a 4 minute bell time and forget trying to be fancy with an old
    alarm panel.

    Huh?

    What do you mean disarm remotely? With a handheld or from across the
    country?

    Bob,

    As no one is in the house during the daytime, I am working quite far
    away and in the event that the alarm is set off / triggered by
    lightning I need to disarm and then arm it again. I might have to try
    that a few times to ensure whether the alarm is malfunction /
    triggered by lightning.

    At the moment the alarm will call my handphone if it is triggerd off.

    To reiterate what I said before...just program 4 minute bell time. Why do
    you have to disarm it and arm it again?...it's not gonna disarm itself you
    know.

    And what does your alarm say to you when it calls?

    Thanks for the recommendation. Can I get the control panel and reuse
    the keypads ( FBII - no display type ) and all the magnetic ,
    vibration and PIR sensors ?

    Keypads will have to be changed.
    Switches and pir's are interchangable, you may have to change resistors.
    Vibration sensors? Really? What kind?
