    Hi

    I'm after some advice please guys.

    I have a Texecom Ricochet alarm system and I'm thinking of buying the Connect SmartCom and installing it myself. Has anyone got experience of fitting one and how difficult is it? I believe I my need to update the firmware on both the SmartCom and my control panel (Premier Elite 64W) so I will need the USB -Com Interface and the Flash Interface PCB. Are there any instructions on updating firmware and where can I find the latest patches? Final question, can it be done using a MacBook or is a Windows laptop required.

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks Sparkymarka, it's v3.01.02LS1 so it will need flashing. Is it easy enough to do if I buy the Flash interface above?

    There are instructions on how to flash the panel, it is possible to damage the pcb but most manage it okay.
