just a quick query regarding the use of a X-BE bell box with a Premier Elite 24. I am replacing an old Texecom system in my house I have already installed the Premier Elite 24.

If I would like to have the LED backlight on the bell box to come on at a given time and off again later, am I correct in setting the control timer to the times required, then use an output of the panel ?

Can the Elite 24 digicom outputs sink or drive the back light LED on the X type bell box ? Perhaps feed the 0v from the led back light to a digicom output set to be a control timer, what is the best set-up for this application please?

I have a six code cable from an old Odyssey bell box now, but I think that would be enough to do what I need, eg, 12V, BELL, TAMP, 0V, STROBE, BACK LIGHT?

Thank you!!

yes you can use a digi output the power for the led is very small. You need to assign the control timer to that output and wire up to the led as per the manuals suggestion
Thank you. What do installers tend to do with illuminated bell boxes? Have them on all the time, or timed? My neighbour has one but it's not clear if it's on or not during the day.
Older ones on all time , never version has a photocell to switch it off in day
