Simon Alarm System - Re-installing

  1. My newsgroup reader does not suppor search, and groups.google wasn't
    much help.

    I've got a Simon 2 system and I want to re-install it, including
    changing the phone number dialed from the prior service to the police
    dept which provide the same service - at no charge.

    I been searching but unable to find anything besides the general 'how to
    test' sensors and add access codes.

    Any links out there to the install manual?

    TIA,

    Brian

    Are you sure that the police station is equipped with an alarm station
    receiver?
    can they provide you with the protocol they handle?

    can they give you a client id number to program in the panel as a way to
    identify your site?

    I really don't think they do...

    Some around Dallas still can but it's getting very rare
     
  4. When I moved in and checked with the Police (after they got called for
    an accidental alarm) on what I could do they said that I could have the
    system dial them. I have not gone any futher with the request (because
    I don't know how to re-program the dial-out number).

    The department went digital a few years ago so they may be easily be
    able to ID the incoming call.

    We have one PD that monitors here for their tiny town and they charge more
    than a private alarmco.


    | There are some Police Depts that have receivers and monitor alarms
    directly,
    | I'm not aware of any that don't charge for the service though.

    Really unusual. You must live in a tiny town.
    They'd need a reciever to decode what your alarm is saying as well...are you
    sure they understood what you were asking?

  7. West University Place, an incorporated area within Houston, has its own
    monitoring facility at their police station. It has created a lot of
    problems for the citizens because alarm dealers here don't want to service
    equipment they don't monitor. And yes, they do charge more than most of the
    alarm dealers in town. Their claim to fame is that there is no middle man,
    the alarm comes in directly to the police station.

    that's not the way it work..

    ID of the caller by the phone number is not reliable

    better start by asking a few question first before doing any "tuning" to
    your alarm system

    Yah here too, but with the added restriction that ONLY they can monitor
    alarms. I'm not sure that same restriction is in effect because I wont do
    business in that town anymore. We tried to push a restriction of trade suit
    but our association was a bunch of wimps back then. They had one Radx 6500
    and an old 685 in a small room the size of a large restroom, no software
    just file cards....and they'd yell across the hall to dispatch: Hey Mabel!
    Jack Smith has a perimeter alarm again send Joe out there on his way to
    Dunkin Donuts! The really sad part is the homes in that area are
    mega-million dollar shacks.

    They would let us service the crap that someone put in, but not do any of
    the monitoring. Infact they were incapable of repairing or installing
    anything, they just wanted the monthly.

    You just need to know how to use google. Actually anyone could've got this
    one in about 3 seconds.

    Searched for "simon 2 install manual" (without the quotes) and this was the
    first hit...
