PH508 (Power Horn)
« on: March 14, 2011, 06:08:56 PM »

Can anyone help me with PH508 everytime when I use ARM HOME or ARM AWAY the PH508 always sound for 1-2 second then off.
I tried set PH508's House code and Unit code same as system console but i just don't like the sound everytime when i pressed ARM button.
I tried set the same House code but with different Unit code but did not hear the sound from Power Horn.
What setting i really need? please help


thanks

One to two second sounds is not normal.
 
Are you using the older PS561 console in the DS7000 Kit or the new SC1200A console?

If it is the PS561 set the unit code to any unit number but the Security Light Unit Code. House Code to match the one set on the console.
It should only sound after an alarm starts flashing the lights for about two or more cycles.

If it is the SC1200A it has to be set to the Security Light Code or the Security Light Code +1 unit code.

What is the date code {small white round sticker} on the PH508?

I believe you may already have it set.
First or second Security Light Code is what X10 says is needed.
Example if you have it set to B House Code, Light Code 1. PH508 set to either B1 or B2 is what the settings should be.

I will see if I can find anything more on this as I know when X10 made the Radio Shack 49-1000 {very similar to the SC1200A} Powerhorns where a problem back in 2005.
I also know my old PH508s and 2010 PH508s act differently with a SC1200A.

Setup menu #7 OPTIONS. Page 26 of manual.
You can set the House Code the console uses and the unit code {called Light Code}.
If you didn't set it it will be A1 and A2. By default.

Page 35:
Any module set to that address will flash on an alarm.
On an arm home. Will go On and Off to indicate it was set.
On an arm away. Lights go on and go off a minute later after the exit delay times out.

SC1200A calls it a Security Light Code. Most would call them the House Code Unit Code Address.

Basically it is the address; House Code and Unit Code; a lamp module or wall switch is set to will flash with an alarm or go on and off to indicate arming.

If you never reset the House Code and Light Code {Unit Code Dial on Module} in the SC1200A Options menu.
The PH508 should be set to House Code A Unit Code 1. Since the SC1200 can control two addresses. The second is again House Code A and this time Unit Code 2.

So set the PH508s to A1 or A2 if you have not reset them in the options menu of the SC1200A.

Try A1. On each PH508 you want to add to the system.
If that doesn't work correctly. Try A2.

You are welcome.
We have been testing PH508s and SH10As with the SC1200A and various date codes act differently.
I think X10 was trying to get the Powerhorns to work with the Radio Shack 49-1000MC console they made for them. In late 2004.
Back then we has reports of them not working correctly. The SC1200A is not that much different than the 49-1000MC.

Thank you for all the data you provided on your date codes and results.
It will be added to our information.

I can make my modified timing component PH508 do exactly what yours is doing.
It was modified to trigger with fewer on off cycles in an feeble attempt to make it work with an SC1200A.

i have no idea why make strange sound it happen twice when armed and i open the door the alarm will  sound then i disarm the unit this is how the sound did change to lower tone on both chime and exit delay sound to fix it remove battery and unplug power to solve the problem.


would you please try to set your sc1200 and your ph508 the same Housecode and Lightcode you will hear the sound for the moment from ph508 when press arm home.
