    Yes I found it, it was software problem. I removed the program from PC, deleted register recordings related with the program, reinstalled the program, and everything is fine. Thanks for all.

Honeywell wireless alarm beeps constantly and displays FC. Anyone can help me stop that?

FC is Failure to Communicate - meaning the alarm panel is trying to call in to the monitoring center to report an event and cannot do so. The problem could be you no longer have an account with the monitoring center or your phone line is disconnected.

Hello! You you cannot use the camera with a vcr. This camera needs vertical drive sync impulses from a dedicated monitor. The video signal, the vertical sync and the video signal are sharing the same coax cable.

How do i connect my Security company`s radio tx to the DSC PC 1864

Depends on the model of the radio. If it is a TL150 or TL250, it can attach to the T-Link headers on the control board. It is also possible that the radio can do 'dialer capture', where it attaches to the Tip and Ring of the control panel for telephone line monitoring. All of that said, you should have a certified alarm installer do the installation, as they can verify and test communications without dispatching police / fire / ems to your residence. If this is a business location, installing yourself can also lead to some legal liability issues, check your state and local regulations.

Direct sunlight to the back up camera creates a large vertical line and blurrs out on the monitor. Is there any way to correct this? thanks

Look for a crack or partially open seam in the camera housing that could be letting light in from the rear. If the housing is separating, see if it's because of a missing screw or broken tab of some sort that secures the parts of the housing. Place a piece of opaque tape (duct tape, etc.) over the affected area.
REAL men only have (or need) two tools in their tool box: A can of WD-40 and a roll of duct tape. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape; if it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40.

My monitor sony ssm-721 rolls until it warms up or

Fixed mine! Take off the monitor from the dash. Take the cover off the monitor. There are four seperate white plastic turn dials available inside the case. Each of these have seperate controls the ones on the top are for brightness and focus while the ones on the bottom of the casing are for vertical and horizontal hold fine tuning, use a screwdriver to adjust. Save you money and do this yourself it's easy as pie.

Todd, when you trip the system does it seize the phone line. (meaning does it cut off the plone line to your house phones.) if not you have a wiring problem. also security systems are designed to talk to the monitoring stations reciever on standard pots(annalog) phone lines, not on a dsl line with out a dsl filter. not over voip lines,. you may want to see if your monitoring station can connect to your system remotly. any good security company should be able to do this for you. if they cant you may want to look for a new company.
