I have a Paradox 465 that connected to the system [Immediate type], with no resistor in the connection. For the first day, the system works normally. But on the 2nd day, the sensor will trigger in the midnight. Checked the sensor area, does not have curtain, light, pets that cause the alarm. So, suspect that is a false alarm.
I have returned the Paradox 465 and claim for a new one, but same thing happen. Is there any way I can check if the zone trigger for twice, then only I take it as a real alarm?
I have tried to set the alarm type to [Alert type], but it get worst where the alarm will keep trigger.
Is there anything I can play around with the Response to check if the alarm trigger twice after X seconds?
Sorry for my bad english.
You can modify the response below as the PIR Zone Response
This is similar to the Default Response Vibration Analyser
Timer 8 is for timing and counter 7 for counting
If at least 2 counts are detected within 30 seconds, the alarm is triggered
you can change the timer setting of 30 seconds and the count of 2 as you need
If Timer Timer08 = 0 Then
Do NullResponse After 30 Seconds Using Timer08
Set Counter007 = 0
If Counter Counter007 >= 2 Then
Stop Timer Timer08
At each zone trigger, the timer 8 is started and count is reset if timer 8 was not running
The counter is incremented. If the value < 2 the a;arm is skipped
If the value is >=2 the timer is stopped and the alarm is not skipped, ie alarm is activated
The response is working. But the result still not as our expectation, because the PIR sensor only detect the second trigger after 3-4 seconds.
Would like to ask, do I need to connect external power supply if my system has 3 - 4 PIR detector [Paradox DG85 & PA 465] and 1 smoke detector?
Because the system is working abnormal.
When the PIR sensor triggered, it will keep to trigger until we restart the system. Then, after triggered again, we need to restart again. This issue is randomly happening.
