He had me check the back of the console, so
I imagine the console or the whole package.

>>John Brown<<
So, what you are saying is that Radioshack
made changes that now accept the X10
Powerhorns? Becuase I talked to a
radioshack guy about my Motion detector,
and he said that this is one of the newer
editions of this unit, but it may have
gotten mixed up with the old ones...

Well just wondering...

Leo; Hope that thay did a fix for the
Powerhorns. Let us know one way or the
other. My thoughts are if it still sends the
ON OFF cycle to the two security lamp codes
the powerhorn may still not respond.

Hi, i called Radio shack and was on the
phone with tree different people and they
said there are no recalls on the 49-1000
system or the motion dectors. and there is
no fix for the x10 sirens they still are not
compatible with Secuurity systm 49-1000. in
1-2 months they are comeing out with a
compatible out door or indoor sirens.

That is about what I had read about the
Powerhorns. Can't say about the sensors or a
recall. They may not want to admit that any
where bad or needed a recall, unless pressed.
I have also found different employees give a
different story on questions.

I am facing exactly the same problem (the
motion sensors not reporting to the
console). And you are saying that all
sensors belonging to that specific batch
are defective?

Unfortunately, I bought the whole kit with
extra motion sensors when I were in the US,
and now I am back home in Saudi Arabia.
There is no support what so ever here.

The only setup I have managed to get to work
is only three motion sensors and only four
window switches. Anything more and things do
not report and there is no way to register
them except clearing everything (console and
sensors) by unplugging and taking the
batteries out.

Then yoo have two or more sensors go out of
zone in a short period of time and there is
no way to reregister them except by taking
down the whole system and starting over.

As it is set up now, single window switches
still go out and have to be reregistered
once a month, but, I can usually do it
without taking the whole system down.

Worse, you can not by-pass a defective zone
as per the instructions. You can usually
clear it by multiple arm/disarms though.

I returned all the accesories and two kits.
I kept one kit for now, I am going to go
hardwired on the replacement system.

49-1000 = unreliable

The 49-1000 is a piece of junk. I have had
three. The first one failed in 4 months. The
second was dead out of the box. I installed
a third one and after the second test, it
will no longer respond!

Trash!!! Don't touch it!!

I would like to add that is two motion
sensors and four door switches. I returned
the third one because I could notamke it
work properly all the time. It would just go
to la-la land and not register anymore.

To get my most errant sensor registered, I
have to go to the sensor with the console
and then open the window or door. On a
straight line, it is less then 25 feet away
in a floor below and the floor is only
plywood and a rug.

I wonder what the exact difference there is
between the 49-1000 and DS-7000? I was
seriously considering the X-10 version
instead of this, but, I think I might just
go hardwire instead.

Will the X-10 devices work with the Dtexx
systems?

If so, I will get one.
