Risco Lightsys PIR help!

Brilliant thanks for that. I’m pretty much all sorted with everything now, accept the door contact for the front door, the back door I’ve gone for impaq sc - wired texecom shock and door sensor, but the front door is currently the basic bog standard door contacts as per the first image. I’d change this to the impaq sc but I already have the holes in the front door and frame for the standard contacts, in your opinion, should I leave the door as is or is there any better branded options for door contacts?
Also upstairs we have the pretty bog standard Honeywell panic buttons - second pic, is there any better hard wire better options or should I keep these too? Many thanks yet again. Your knowledge is impeccable!

It is not recommended to install combined shock /MC on any entry door that starts the entry exit process.
You can re use your existing devices if in working condition. If your configuration is EOL then you will need to install resistors in these devices.

As for better contacts, you have options that include resistors and a tamper.
price wise they cost more but they arent expensive by any means.

lots of option on Panic buttons the choice is yours, built in resistors, indicator leds, you should at least have double push style nowadays, two buttons to press to activate.
 
Hello guys. Can I please ask advise with this risco Lightsys2 system. I’m having trouble connecting the texecom d20 PIRs. I’m just trying to connect one for now before I start removing our old system. I’ve connected the pir and it lights up and detects movement, but the keypad won’t find it, I’m sure the wiring is correct?
Further more I thought it did find the sensor before I reset it again but do I have to define the bus zone type for each hardwired pir? Sorry for the questions, my head is cabbaged as it’s more complex than my previous system! Thanks again everyone.

What resistor value does your system use.
This can be selected per zone.
Texecom capture detectors have a selection of resistor values you can use by selecting the value with the silder. You may not require the resistors to be fitted.This is all dependent on how it is programmed without the information the resistor value selection could be any of the one's in attached page.Screenshot_20220906-190533_Drive.jpg
 
I tried putting in the yellow in D and still got no joy.the pir lights up perfectly but doesn’t register on the panel. the capture pir I selected 0-0 on the back for the inbuilt resistors but added my own 2x 2.2s.
As for the pir… if I did get it to find it on the Lightsys2, it Asks what the bus zone type is, this usually corresponds to riscos own sensors as per the image I’ve attached, surely I can select other (even though it’s not available)? Surly risco can’t seriously require their own PIRs?!

Don’t fit these as they are a load of shhhhhite but looks like you have set the on board zones for bus devices ….

I agree with you sparkymarka!! I have tried doing exactly as you have said there, however the issue is it says ‘type’ - upon pressing it has the likes of OPR12, ODT15 etc… these are risco sensors, this is a D20! If I select NONE then it won’t find this D20. Do you think risco only allow their own sensors nowadays? I’ve added the list of the ‘types’ I can select from.
Surly surly surly risco can let us mix and match with other manufacturers!!!!?

I’ve managed to find some old iWISE Grade 3 Detectors… these are riscos own PIRs, I’ve set the two built in resistors to 2.2 each. Does this wiring look ok to you or am I missing something? Thank you again

That’s a standard wired device …as above from your screen shot on the keypad , you have zone 1 set as a bus device
 
Yeh sorry I’ve set the pir as zone one, no matter what I do it will not work!? My wiring is as above, it won’t even run a test on the device. I think I’ll just scrap tho whole risco idea tbh it’s a joke of a system.
