Hi,

I've recently bought a house with a Texecom Premier 24 and am looking to install a COM IP (it's about 5 years old with 8.00 firmware).

Trouble is, I don't have the engineer's code and the user code I have isn't the master user. I might have to replace the panel with a new Premier Elite 24 anyway but the immediate problem is how to open the existing panel without setting the tamper alarm off.

Once I have the panel open I plan to try resetting it and then I'll order a new one if that proves impossible.

Any tips would be appreciated. Also -- could anyone confirm that the keypads from the Premier 24 will work OK with a new Premier Elite 24?

Thanks for any assistance.

Comip's not compatible with your 24 though, you will need to upgrade to new Elite.

Jibbeh is correct in that technically the com-ip does not work on the pre elite 24's

although I have never tried it I have had rumors that it is possible to get the com-ip module to work on the pre elite 24's.

What are you wanting the com-ip module for.

To be honest i would upgrade the panel, do you have any wireless kit on there?

Thanks guys. I read somewhere that COMIP can be made to work with the old panel if you upgrade the firmware, but there was some reason why upgrading wasn't guaranteed to work. It seems like a new panel is a relatively low cost compared to the COMIP, so worth doing anyway.

Initially I just want to get the alarm onto the local LAN so I can use the Texecom iPhone app when on the local network. There's no wireless kit on there. It does have Redcare but I'm not sure it's worth paying for if I'm going to have notifications direct to my phone in the future (I know COMIP doesn't do that out of the box yet).

The app wont work on the old 24's as is at present as the way the app works it wont be able to talk to the panel.

The pre elite panels require version 10.0 software for the smart key app to work properly, however the keypad app should work with a tweak on the com-ip settings if you are having disconnection issues.

The com-ip can be set up on the panels to give notifications by email using montex and texbase, but you need a pc permanently on for that to work.

Other than that a gsm module can send you text alerts and you can remote control the panel with gsm commands.

Thanks, sounds like a new panel with both com-ip and a GSM module is the way forward.
