    Texecom Connect SmartCom Setup Issue - Premier Elite 64-W

    OK I've worked out how to turn on notifications in the app under Manage Users > App Account name (email) Receive Alerts. Now to cut down on the storm of notifications that seem to get queued then all sent in batches! I don't want to sound like I'm completely writing off this system, but I've...

    Texecom Connect SmartCom Setup Issue - Premier Elite 64-W

    @secureiam - I think you're right about the part arm problem being to do with the way I had the areas setup. Not ideal the app, Wintex and the alarm keypad display didn't all match though, but anyway, I've changed the configuration now so hopefully won't be an issue. I managed to migrate to the...

    Texecom Connect SmartCom Setup Issue - Premier Elite 64-W

    I realise only Texecom can fix the bugs, but have not tried asking them yet, so maybe they will be quite responsive to reported issues. One annoying bug that caught me out was the SmartCom device would not connect if you have a '$' sign in the WiFi password! Took quite a bit of testing to...

    Texecom Connect SmartCom Setup Issue - Premier Elite 64-W

    Thank you both for your answers. I'm very grateful for your help and swift responses. I managed to get the V1 app working - it did indeed require a log in to the app with the engineer's code first, before any other user codes would work. :rolleyes: I have emailed Texecom tech support asking...

    Texecom Connect SmartCom Setup Issue - Premier Elite 64-W

    Hi all I bought a Texecom Premier Elite 64-W system to install myself and specifically chose Texecom for their SmartCom and app functionality. It appears V1 of the Texecom Connect app is being retired and possibly already disabled for new registrations, as I receive an "Access to this system...

    Texecom Premier Elite 48 vs Elite 64-W?

    Thanks - yes noticed that, but it's only about £9 cheaper and there is a small chance I may use the wireless keypad, so thought I'd take the gamble. I've also got a friend who was thinking of adding a second wireless keypad, so may have a buyer there ;)

    Texecom Premier Elite 48 vs Elite 64-W?

    Thanks for the note about kit items not having boxes. I'm working on the basis I get nothing for the spare parts, so anything I get back will be a bonus, and the figures you gave are in-line with my estimates.

    Texecom Premier Elite 48 vs Elite 64-W?

    The advice I got today was from Alert Electrical. I'm inclined to agree with your opinion on the PIR placement, so I think I'll put them in the original locations I planned. None are in direct sunlight and worst case, I could move any that become a problem. I agree on the issue with starting...

    Texecom Premier Elite 48 vs Elite 64-W?

    As it happens I spoke to a supplier this afternoon, who like you, also suggested I just use the grade 2 Texecom Odyssey X-BE instead. Said the grade 3 is unnecessary on residential installs. I believe there is an added benefit of being able to power two Odyssey X-BE without the current draw...

    Texecom Premier Elite 48 vs Elite 64-W?

    :D Great job someone did on the battery! I've researched this to death and going round in circles, so going to just buy the thing now! Annoyingly, none of the kits are a great saving for the system I'm planning, as I want the wired FMK keypad for example. However, I may buy the Elite 64W 0001...

    Texecom Premier Elite 48 vs Elite 64-W?

    Thank you for that consideration. The control panel is going in a cupboard central to the house (a circa 1989 built bungalow) and the straight line distance to the garage is around 22-25 metres, but is diagonal, so crosses around 5-6 walls. I was hoping the signal would reach being fairly low...

    Texecom Premier Elite 48 vs Elite 64-W?

    Thank you so much for your swift reply! Just to confirm, I wasn’t considering the Elite 48W, as I assumed it was discontinued (can’t find it for sale anywhere). I’m only comparing the Elite 48 (metal - not the 'W' model) with the Elite 64W (Polymer) and wondered if one was newer or ‘better’...
