I have been requested to hook up a NAPCO Starlink Dialer to an existing Simplex 4005 at a church building.
The Panel is currently local alarm only, so it is not connected to any phone lines and monitored by any services. It does have the 4005-9810 DACT Card installed on it, but obviously nothing hooked up to it right now. Not sure if that DACT is programmed or able to be used.
The monitoring company can configure the NAPCO Dialer, but needs to know what type of signaling the panel will be sending such as 4+2, or CID, and also if I’ll be utilizing the telco jacks for the Easy FACP connection, or the programmable EOLR zone inputs/relays.
My gut tells me I’ll be doing the relays utilizing Trouble and Alarm from the panel, unless you think I can use the DACT to connect to the phone jacks on the NAPCO.
Given that this is an older panel, am I correct to assume it will be 4+2 signaling from the panel? I am told that SIA will not work with the NAPCO, so I hope 4+2 is an option on this panel! Your guidance here would be greatly appreciated.
This building is about 300 miles away so I’m trying to be as prepared as I can be in hopes of not having to make multiple trips.
Thanks for any help you can provide
