Hi
Just finished installing Accenta G4 Mini Alarm system. Completed Walk Test to test system integrity - all OK. Temporarily wired bell box indoors (main sounder temp replaced by 12v low intensity piezo sounder) to 'burn in system - too we/windy to install outdoors at moment!!

System Configuration:
Program 1 (only) is being used. Hallway PIR on Zone 2 (faces door and covers hallway) and Magnetic door sensor on Zone 1. Four other zones are being used. Zones 1 and 2 timed; 30 secs entry and exit time delays. Exit Mode: Timed. Remote Control panel is located in the Hallway.

Problem:
On setting the alarm Zone 1 setting fault displays on the LCD Remote Control Panel. Yes the PIR is actuated on entry but this does not trigger the Alarm. The house can be exitted via the door and the system will set. correctly. Entry via Zone 1 and 2 to the Remote Panel to disarm works correctly - over 30 secs the Alarm goes off.
So why is the Remote displaying setting faults when, apart from this system functions correctly? To supress annoying beeps from Remote Panel during setting I set the Exit Mode to Silent Time - but this is really masking 'the problem'.

Can anyone shed advice on this please. I dont find the User Guide particularly helpful.

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi
Thanks for your reply. The Remote Control LCD display indicates 'Setting Fault: Porch' when the system is set into Program 1. This is accompanied with a rapid bleep from the Remote Control unit. The 'Porch' descriptor relates to Zone 2 which is the PIR protecting the Hallway and the Remote Unit. You can physically exit this Zone and Zone 1 (Front door - magnetic sensor) and the alarm sets OK provided this is done within 30 secs. Again, you can re enter and disable the set alarm within 30 secs. The Zone 2 PIR does not trigger an immediate alarm. So, I cant determine whether there is an actual 'fault' despite one being reported.

Okay.

have you done a walk test and does zone 2 activate correctly.

zone 2 would normally be a walk through zone, so that if you open the e/e exit door then walk in front of zone 2 it doesnt go into alarm.

if you set the alarm and walk in front of zone 2 without opening the door does it go into alarm.

You may be getting the setting fault as the detector is picking you up as the alarm is setting.

Hi Hoover
Zone 2 - Hallway PIR correctly activates upon a walk test. This PIR does activate when setting the alarm Remote Control as it is in the Hallway. In fact it is almost opposite the Remote Control. So, relating to your last point it does activate in this way during the setting process.
