Title: Interference
Post by: john mateus on January 24, 2006, 07:39:18 AM
I'm planning to install two of your alarm
systems in a building with two apartments,
first and second. I'm wondering if there
is going to be some kind of interference
between the two systems, i.e. when I want
to arm the first floor that would cause
the second one to be armed too, or vice
versa. This question is because I assume
the alarm systems of yours work at the same
Could you please inform me of this doubt
I have?

The security system's do work on the same

I have run two consoles set to the same
code with success. Since you have to
register devices like D/W switches to the
console just make sure you don't have both
consoles in the install mode at the same
time and make sure you don't have anyone
wondering around apartment 1 tripping an ir
device as it might register on the console
in apartment 2. You can also set one
console to position A and the second to
position B. The external devices will only
be recognized on the console they were
registered to. ....
