Re: Silent Knight New Panels

The 6000 series NEEDS HFSS to do any kind of mapping, and the networking is ONLY for reporting, just to let you use one panel for reporting. It is not as exciting as it sounds at first, but at least the 6820 still goes in the same cabinet as the 5808, 5208, and the IFP 100.

Re: Honeywell Vista 15p Download Problems

Did you try to program the panel from the keypad? If you are using a serial port, I would recommend checking the baud rate. That is what prevented me from programming my panels until I figured it out.

Re: What are some things that the General Public misconceives about Fire Alarms that drive you crazy?

"oh my god the pull station smell smoke so the fire sprinnkles spray water". In the first spongebob movie the all of the fire sprinklers in shell city activated because smoke touched one of them. People overestimate the sensitivity and false alarm proneness of fire alarm systems. Spongebob and Patri...

Re: Siemens rebranding EST equipment

This may have happened before Siemens purchased Cerberus Pyrotronics. Honeywell rebranded the EST 3 for a time, and it seems to be in the right timeframe.

Re: Manual for Johnson controls BGX-101l

This is what you might be looking for. It is rebranded by A*T but it's the same exact thing. http://firealarmresources.com/wp-conten ... /50175.pdf

Re: Fike SHP transformer overheating

You may want to mount some form of heatsink on the transformer and also make sure that it is not being overloaded and that there are no shorts anywhere on your system.

Re: The people who make fun of us

I already told a mod about it and who they are, and they said they will take care of it. This person would criticize people for stupid things like playing Roblox, being “obsessed”, and watching Thomas and friends. Then he would quote Thomas and friends and tell me “shut up I’m playing Roblox“.

Re: What fire alarm is this?

This seems to be a copy of the FireLite BG-8. I also believe that other companies have rebranded this station, but for who manufactured it, I would recommend looking up the letters on the key.

Re: The people who make fun of us

I only know one person that has made fun of me and others for our hobbies. I wish I could say names, but what I can tell you is that, ironically, he is a member of this website. He has just harassed many people I know to no end, and is just the worst person I have ever met. If a mod is reading this,...

Re: My second house fire in 3 months.

It may be worth looking into having these fixtures rewired or replaced with replicas. All of these fixtures were rewired when the house was heavily renovated in 1999. This renovation also included replacing most if not all of the wiring in the entire house. I assure you, measures like these were al...

Re: My second house fire in 3 months.

After this post we have bought several 5 pound ABC extinguishers and we are in the process of installing LED bulbs in the fixtures involved in these events, along with installing more smoke detectors on our security system. If allowed by your AHJ, maybe install a pull station that would act as a fi...

My second house fire in 3 months.

Sorry for the extreme length, but I posted this not only to tell a story, but to warn everyone about the real possibility of fires. If I need to move this post somewhere else or remove it, please tell me. In my house, we have some very unsafe light fixtures that are designed to resemble candles. The...

Re: What is this?

That is a glass break detector. Not sure what model, but the hole in the center is the microphone it uses to listen for the sound of breaking glass.
