    What is the appropriate way to handle unused zones on an alarm system.
    I am using a Caddx NX-8e.

    I have a handful of zones on an expansion card that I am not using. I
    currently have the jumpered with a resistor in the panel.

    Is there a programatic way to disable them on the controller?

    Thanks.

    I just jump them out with a resistor.

    Jumper them out with a resistor or take them out of all partitions

    i resistor them out as well as program them out because some of the panels i
    use will show an open zone when i look at it remotely even if its not
    used...which is confusing to me.

    That won't work, they come pre-programmed

    I think so, he probably means you can' t just not program them in as Rory
    opined.

    you can't zero out a zone in caddx?

    Nope, you'd think they would have added that by now with the v2 series

    No zone type exists to erase a zone like DSC but taking them out of any
    partitions does the same thing like DSC

    you cant delete the zones, like with ademco panels .. which come
    preprgrammed also ..?

    whoops, sorry, too used to ademco .. like to try the GE panels one day
    though anyway, so good to know for the future.

    Ummmm <thinking>... no :)

    You'd think tho that would have been easy to implement from the beginning
    considering almost every other panel in the known universe allows deletion
    of zones

    Damn nice panels except I still haven't gotten the hang of adding wireless

    Give it a few more weeks/months and check out the Concord v4, easiest large
    panel to program I've ever worked with
