    Funny you say that I read that on another post. I presume the sab will still go off though won't it? Ir maybe not. Thanks I'll give that a try. :D

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    Thanks for the reply. I think you could be right. I'll have to get the ladders out! I did a search on the bell box and found 1 person who had similar problem after 4 years. But on the whole it seems these bell boxes cause little problems.

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    Well I just spoke to some of my other neighbours and it did go off. So I come to my earlier question, if a fault occurred and then rectified itself would it still be recorded in the log? Alarm activation but nothing in log!??!? :?

    I think i'll have to do that. And maybe speak to some of the other neighbours if I can when I next see them. Thanks for the reply.

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    It is wired correctly. As you rightly say lifting off the front cover triggers a tamper activation. As does trying to remove the backplate from the wall. However, when this occurs it is recorded on the log and requires a reset before the alarm can be put into 'run' mode. This is what...

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    Yes of course, I'd forgotten the bellbox has its own battery backup. Is there a way to provide power for the battery backup other than from within the bellbox itself? Since I do not have any concrete information to go on, and my only guess is that it could be related to the tamper for the...

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    Thanks for the reply, so can I not therefore isolate the bellbox tamper at the panel first?

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    If I were to open the accenta panel, remove the 2x tamper wires for the bellbox and temporarily join them together, then add a link on the pcb board (where i'd just removed the wires from) between the 2x tamper connection would that disable the tamper for the bellbox? This way I could get to...

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    Bell box is a Reson8. Installed about 1 foot under the soffit at the top pitch of the roof on the front facing wall of the house.

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    Given that the bellboxes are not water tight and therefore that well protected from the elements do they go wrong often due to weather conditions i.e. cold rain etc?

    Strange activation reported by neighbour but nothing in log.

    I have an Accenta G4 and whilst out shopping for a short while and with the alarm not set the alarm apparently activated. My neighbour only told me 3 days later so I looked in the logs and there is record of an activation. I remember that I had some issues with the bellhouse tamper when I...

    Shed electrics from garage electrics?

    I've just had a look at garage consumer units on the internet and see some 4 way Cu's have 2x mcb's and a main switch instead of 2x mcb's and an Rcd. Could the Rcd on the garage Cu be changed for a switch thus leaving the supply in the main house Cu protected by the Rcd?

    Shed electrics from garage electrics?

    Thanks for the replies. I'll try and answer/clarify the questions raised in your responses. My Cu looks very much like this http://aaelectricalservices.co.uk/images/Consumer%20unit%20replacement/MK5681ED17.jpg Except that it does not have 2x Rcd's. Instead on the left side is the red...

    Shed electrics from garage electrics?

    Hello again all. I am revisiting this as I am now in a position to get the shed (well I will once the snow has gone!!!). To add some information to that detailed above as a check has revealed I gave some incorrect information. I have checked the garage wiring. It is a single length of...

    Shower ventilation and condensation getting trapped.

    Thanks for the reply :D . The fan is in the loft (its a bungalow). The vent hose as it was used to just end up sagging due to condensation getting trapped, which then pulled that section down more causing more condensation to become trapped. I will definitely look at maybe running the...
