Why in Homesafe after my alarm sets, the siren screams for 2 seconds?

This indicates a zone has been excluded when the system armed, this could be because movement was still being detected when arming or possible faulty sensor.

How to adjust Homesafe which is Just installed and a new alarm and all zone's are showing on the keypad?

This would indicate that the installer has not installed or incorrectly installed the 2k2 resistors in the sensors, refer to the installation instruction for wiring procedure.

With Power Suite V1.5, I understand that the PS for Pocket PC can be installed for iPAQ 3800/3900. What about the newer series of iPAQs (eg 2200 and 5...

Goals and Symptoms

With Power Suite V1.5, I understand that the PS for Pocket PC can be installed for iPAQ 3800/3900. What about the newer series of iPAQs (eg 2200 and 5500)? Does the PS support this product series? Does it also work with Pocket PC 2003? Thank you.

Causes and Fixes

Powersuite v1.5 doesn't work under PC2003, for that you need to wait the V2 of Powersuite ( forecast end 2003 ) with Ipaq22xx in qualification.

Why Homesafe Battery is flashing on keypad?

The battery in the main panel box will need replacing, this can be done by the home owner.
You will need to press ‘P’ enter code and press ‘E’ to put into program mode, they are then able to remove the two Phillips head screws from the main panel cover and open, the batter is connected by 2 spade terminals that slide off, the battery is a standard 12vdc 7Amh Sealed Lead Acid, Cat# 5460/12/7B
 

What do I need to add a remote/pendant to the alarm for Homesafe?

You will require a 5400RF - Radio Frequency receiver and the remote/pendant eg: 5403BP
You will also need to refer to your installation manual for the how to on programming,

Example: To enable user code 56 as a radio code and program a radio key.
Press P256E EXCLUDE E 5E EXCLUDE E 1E then press the OFF button on the radio key.
 

HomeSafe - Dimensions of Reed switches

The below list are all measured in mm - all Reed Switches are Normally Closed with the magnet in place (NC)

5460               18h x 19w x 13d
5460FD            19(dia)
5460FS            9.5(dia)
5460HD            88h x 38w x 10d (cable lenght: 280)
5460RF            78h x 73w x 27d

HomeSafe - Can I have more than one PIR/Sensor on a single zone?

Yes, you can wire a second Motion Sensor in series on a single zone.

Note: When one of the two sensors detects movement it will only show the single zone number on the keypad, so it's advised to have both the sensors in the same vicinity to give a clear indication of the area that triggered.

For wiring instructions see Example 3 of the attached document.

How can I have my alarm monitored without a phone line available in HomeSafe?

If you do not have a phone line available or you're connected to the NBN with phone line service unavailable, you can connect your alarm system directly to a GSM Dialer.

The GMS dialer utilizes a Mobile GSM Network SIM Card, the alarm will dial out via the GSM Dialer as per normal on the Mobile GSM Network - this is the same as your mobile phone.

The programming in the alarm is the same if your using a fixed line, if already programmed you don't need to make any changes.

Attached is a brochure from NESS with their GSM Dialer offer.

Why Homesafe - Red light is flashing on the main circuit board?

This flashing light is called the Heartbeat, this is normal and should consistantly flash on then off.

If you have having problems with your alarm panel check this LED, if it flashes about 8-10 times then a pause then the same again this could indicate an issue with the panels memory.

To rectify this enter Installer Program Mode, then press P95E, P97E & P98E to erase all programming and reload factory defaults.

If after doing a full reset you are still having problems please contact Technical Support on 1300 722 247 for further analysis.

Can I remotely scan a customer network with Toolkit and just a CNI (C-Bus Network Interface)?

Yes, you will need to purchase and configure a CNI for the network, once you have set a static IP on the CNI you will need to setup Port Forwarding in the customers Modem/Router.

You will need to create a Port forward Rule, to allow port 10001 from External to Port 10001 Internal at the IP address of the CNI.
For help with Port Forwarding go to a service like https://www.portforward.com

Once this has been configured, you will need to configure the confection in Toolkit to use either a CNI or Wiser connection type, enter the IP address that the ISP has assigned to that customers connection (Not the internal IP of the CNI), the Port should already be set to 10001 - Do not change this.

The External IP can be either Dynamic or Static, if it's Static this will not change, but if Dynamic you will need to use a method to be able to check what the current External IP is before trying to connect.

You can use a service like https://dyn.com/dns/ sign up for an account and enter those details into the customer Modem, to check the IP you will need to go to a Command Prompt (CMD) and Ping the URL address, it will respond with the current External IP address that the ISP has assigned to the customers Internet Connection

Why is my HomeSafe alarm showing armed even when i enter the confirmed correct code to disarm.

1. Enter Program Mode - P [Master Code - 123(default)] E
2. Enter Installer Mode - P [Installer Code - 000000(default) E
3. Enter P201E Exclude E to display the Master Code Options
4. Has P201E been enabled for Area 1 eg 1E? See installation guide note "1E AREA 1 CODES. This option is used to assign any user code
to area 1. (user codes 1–15 are assigned to area 1.)"
5. Has P201E been enabled for Arm Only eg 3E? This option is only applicable to user codes 2-56 eg P202E - P256E. 
6. Has P201E been enabled for Remote eg 5E? It is recommended that the remote be activated on another user code other than the master as the master can be used to access the program and installer modes.

If Master Code is defined for Area 1 and not for Remote it should be able to arm/disarm from keypad as expected

How to Arm/Disarm NESS Minicentral from C-Bus

On the Alarm Panel:
- Enter Program mode, then enter Installer mode of Alarm Panel - "Program' should be flashing.
- Press P199E and enable 3E, 6E - 3 & 6 showing where the Zone numbers are.
- Press P then E to go back to the ready mode.

In the PICED Software:
- Click File and "Add Template Contents' click 'Ok' and select the relivent device and then pages, select the Security Page. this is a different process for Wiser
- Add this to the project and arrange to suit screen.
- Save to device.

Power Cycle the Alarm by removing the mains power pack and battery, once powered back up arm then disarm the Alarm from the physical keypad.
Now arm and disarm from the C-Bus Touch screen, their will be a small delay in response from the MiniCentral.

Can you arm a NESS alarm panel with MiniCentral from a C-Bus Switch?

Yes, it is possible to arm the system from a C-Bus wall switch, but you are not able to disarm from a single C-Bus Group address as this is a security vulnerability

You will require the Ness MiniCentral Software
- Connect a 9pin Serial cable from your PC to Com1 on the MiniCentral
- Open the NESS MiniCentral Software
- You will see 'Area Application' - this relates to the C-Bus Application for Lighting and needs to match the Application that the Group command will be received from
- You will also see 'Area Identity' - this is the 3 digit number that relates to the Group Address, (Example: Group 'Security Arm' = Group Address: 223)
Enter 223 in this field as this is what the NESS MiniCentral will respond to, to arm the system.

On the NESS Alarm Keypad:
- Enter Program Mode
- Press P202E or any memory location that is not currently used for a user code (P202E - P255E)
- For this example press P202E enter 223 then enter, then repeat to confirm, once confirmed this will flash back 223 on the keypad screen.
- Press P and E to exit

In Toolkit:
- Open a Key input unit (Switch)
- on a free key Select the group 'Security Arm' if not created, create a new group address and select for this example the 223 address that was entered in the alarm system.
- Save to unit.

Group Address 223 is used as an example, but you are limited to 3 digits that are in the C-Bus lighting group address range (000-254)

Once this has been completed you will be able to press the button on the keyinput and this will arm the Alarm System.
