Dingdong, dingdong,DINGDONGG!
« on: January 28, 2005, 01:08:20 AM »

The zone lights on the console don't go out
making it impossible to arm the system
without using the bypass.  And WHO wants to
do that??  This is causing marital stress
and frustration on my part.  I am using
fresh batteries and signal repeaters.
Comeon, Guys and Gals, aren't we ALL having
this nasty problem??
What are your solutions??

Yeah, I hate when that happens. Occasionally
the motion sensor reports "on" but not "off"
then it sticks. I just need to walk in front
of it. I really enjoyed this system until my
family stopped using it because they couldn't
get it to arm properly.

To get the zone lights to go out after the
alarm has activated, you have to turn off
the security light with the remote control
that comes with the system.(or key remote)
Then you can re-arm without having to bypass
any zones.

In order to get around the by-pass pass mode
X10 Support suggested that I unplug the
console and remove the battery and register
everything again. What a pain.  I have 8
doors and 5 security motion sensors to do
each time. After having done this process
for the third time, I now have one zone
registering a low battery, which is a false
signal b/c I've changed out the batteries
twice with new and tested ones to insure
they are good. Now, I have an 5 ding sound
that fires off every 36 minutes for 6
cycles, goes to one after 21 minutes, then
back to the 36 minute cycle.  I have simply
covered the console to muffle the sounds.
But, I'm not having to by-pass the blankety
blank thing anyway. It is amazing what it
does to the marital situation - my wife is
about to go sleep in a motel.

See if  you can get a different console.
That sure is not typical

I have the same problem. I have had the
system for about two weeks and have  had it
armed for a period of 24 straight hours,
only once during that time.
Do these things work at all? Has anyone had
one in service for a while without having
to reset over and over
I have been able to set it, when leaving
the house, only twice since I have had it.
most of the time I just turn it off because
there is at least one problem light on.
If I can't find a solution soon I guess the
only recourse will be to send it back for a
refund.

Every now and then one of my motion sensors
gets stuck on, easily fixed when I walk in
front of it. Never had to resort to resetting
the whole thing.

Like Joel, I once in a while have to walk
in front of a motion detector to get it to
check in with the console.  Then after
getting out of view of the motion detector
for a few seconds it arms no problem.  Make
sure you are not continuously tripping the
motion detector.

Dick, if you have a console that doesn't have
station lights that don't go out, I WOULD
LOVE TO BUY IT!!
It would be great if X-10 tech support would
solve this problem for us.  I would gladly
pay more for a better quality product.
Who ELSE has this problem????

How come say, an ADT wireless system works
flawlessly but X10 has problems like this?

I had the same problems, I finally unplugged
the console.  System apperas to work fine
with door/window sensors, but definetly not
with motion detector.  Obviously this device
is not reliable so i will return it.  How con
you use a security system that doesn't work?!!

I Think I have finally figured out the
problem with the system.
In the door/window sensors. the lower
contact for the battery on the left side
was loose and not making good contact. I
just took a small screw driver and pulled
up on the spring and now I have a good
contact and the system has worked ever
since, that is about a week so far. before
that, all I was able to get was four days
at the most.
I really like the system and what it will
do, for the price. so now only time will
tell, if the fix was sufficiant.

Me to!
I put brand new batteries in the sensor. 4
days later ding ding freakin A. Happened
twice. I actually got my house broken into
when I thought for sure my house was armed.
They came in, no sirens, no dial out, and
lost an $8000 4wheeler!!!
Guess you get what you pay for ! You guys
have the right idea but you have to fine
tune it! Go back to the drawing board! you
have great ideas! Make them work! I'll pay
extra$$$
