Hi I have a Texecom Veritas R8 Alarm, half the PIRs are not working so i remved the cover to find half the cables arent wired or even stripped!!

Basically there are ten PIRs each individually wired back to the alarm

Bed 1
Bed 2
Bed 3
Bed 4
Drawing Room
Dining Room
Living Room
Boiler Room

In addition there is a PA button in the Master Bed

The wiring was a complete mess so i have labled each cable for each room etc and now want to re wire it in. I would also like to add a second RKP and a second PA button.... how do i go about doing this?

Also i need help rewiring the PIRs back to the alarm!!

Many thanks guys!!

Are you replacing with the premier like you say in your other thread? If so just wire each item to an individual zone and program the panel with what's what.
An R8 is a flat 8 zone panel with no room for expansion so to have more than 8 PIRs / Panic buttons / magnet switches etc will mean doubling up.
