      Hi Simon, you replied to my question about taking a feed from a supply to a bathroom fan. Could you give me a bit more advice on that please?

      Hi Simon

      Bit saddened to hear LabCraft did not reply. I guess the ethics of the founders has been lost when they retired.

      Regards

      Hi Bernard
      I'm sure! The boiler was off.

      BTW, Labcraft never got back to me despite repeated attempts.

      Thanks,

      Simon.

      Not putting this on forum as I do not want to upset that Yale expert.

      Are you sure the boiler has not been running even though the rooms are already hot from the sun ? I have a reason for asking.

      A friend ( retired Home Office radio engineer ) was asked to look at a faulty home automation system. Poor temperature control was one of several problems. He found there was a lot of blocking of signals from a nearby farm security system gate alarms. ( 433.92 MHz and over 200 yard range ). The only fix was a hard wired over ride system to force the boiler to OFF if the wireless system lost control of the boiler. He has suggested to the manufacturers that the boiler should shut down if it has not received an ON command for 5 minutes and the controlling thermostat / timer should send an ON command to keep the boiler running when needed. The reply was the transmissions would shorten battery life. He wants other examples to add to his data to further the matter.

      Previously has has found baby monitors have compromised other licence exempt equipment in domestic situations.

      Best regards

      Bernard

      Hi

      Have a look at LabCraft lighting

      http://www.labcraft.co.uk/products/market_selector_leisure.php

      I worked for them when they were a small 5 staff family company in the 1960's and they seem to have retained the same ethic of quality and value that was there in the beginning.

      They started out making test equipment for aerial installers. One of the staff came up with the idea of 12 volt flourescent lights for vehicles and that soon became the main product.

      Regards

      Bernard

      Hi

      I've managed to find a copy of the manual on the web. Turns out I was wrong again its the premier model I have. I've wired it all up today and all I get is tamper for the zones and it will not arm. I've wired each sensor to its own zone as its only for an out building, and then run the tamper circuit in series. Don't suppose you have any ideas? I haven't used any resistors in the PIR's or door contacts.

      Cheers
      Mick
