DS7000 - it's all good
« on: December 22, 2005, 02:28:03 PM »

Hi all,

Just recieved my DS7000 and assorted
security componets yesterday. I finished
installing 13 door/window sensors and 3
motion detectors today. It all went very,
very well. I encountered only two issues -
a door/window sensor that added an extra
switch to was showing open. Turned out I
had the magnet placed too far from the
switch so that was my fault. The other
issue, and I haven't figured out what to do
with this yet, is a motion detector in an
unheated storage building that dropped out
over night then reappeared this morning.
I'm assuming it's the cold that is causing
the battery to weaken which is decreasing
the RF range until it no longer makes it.

Aside from those two - it's good, real
good! Thanks to everyone that posted to
this forum. I knew what to expect and how
to avoid the problems that you have already
encountered.

Cheers
Jack

Hi, just an update.

I had my first live test this afternoon. I
was leaving work and was about 3 blocks from
home when my cell phone rang. It was me on
the other end telling me I had an intruder.
What the heck!

Since I was so close it took me only a few
more seconds to get home. As I drove up I saw
my son's car in the driveway. I hadn't had a
chance to tell him about the security system.
Boy was he shook up.

Well, it works and it works well.

Cheers
