Help with wireless window security alarm

2 months ago, I got the exterior of my house painted. While painting, the workers pulled up the windows. Since then the security alarm stopped working. I cannot set it back. The keypad keeps saying the zones are not ready. Is there anyway to troubleshoot this? Your help is appreciated.

"Zone not ready" indicates the windows sensors are not seeing the magnet piece to indicate the window is closed. Are your sensors built into the window jams or are they external wires you can see?

If you have external wires, look for broken wires or broken/missing magnetic bars.

Did the painters paint the window jams? If so, they may have painted over a sensor, though paint usually does not affect the functionality of a magnetic sensor.

Look for the broken wires or broken/missing magnets.

Also - you should be able to bypass the window zones and set the alarm. Instructions for bypassing a zone should be on the alarm head or available online.

    What is the manufacturer and model of the wireless alarm? The wireless sensor may need to be "re-joined" to the system.

    Underwriters Laboratories Inc. is not a manufacturer. They are an independent trusted source across the globe for product compliance. They make sure you won't be harmed by any physical or electrical problems with a product.

    The manufacturer and model of the equipment should be listed near the UL label.

Removing Paint From Leaded Windows.


Hi phil, i think your lead is shiny because you have taken off some oxcidation when you were preping your windows. Im quite sure that in a month or so your lead will be the same dark gray color your use to seeing. If you have some old fishing weights, you will notice the same issue, take a wire brush to it and looks brand new, in a couple weeks it oxcidates and dark gray it is again. Hope that helps.

The sun is so harsh on wood windowsills they crack in a couple of years and have to be repainted. Someone told me to use aluminum oil based paint on them prior to painting them. All I found is 402...


Usually when you have cracking on your windows, there's several variables including sunlight. One of the biggest problems is using the incorrect primer or a cheap paint. Contrary to what many believe, a primer that dries extremely hard is not ideal for exterior surfaces. Wood expands and contracts with heat, cold and moisture. A high quality latex primer, topped with a high quality exterior latex paint will give you the best results. It allows for flexibility but offers great protection. Some prefer an oil/alkyd based primer. This is fine as long as it's a slow drying primer. The quick drying primers have hardeners in them that don't flex well. Be sure to remove any loose and flaking paint before you prime them. There are places where you can cut corners with painting. I wouldn't do it on exterior paint. One last thing to be aware of- be sure it's not lead paint you're working with. That changes everything.

What is the correct concistancy the paint needs to be mixed at for the dynatec psg 45 electric spray gun


It depends on 3 things.
What you are painting.
Whether you are applying latex, oil-base, or primer.
What size TIP you are using.
We use spray equipment and use size 17 and 19 for latex, and 11 for oil.
Double-check the size that came with your gun and look at tips at Home Depot.
Old tips wallow out and the spray pattern is irregular/uneven and the gun blows out too much paint and our material costs go up.

The manual says "dilute correspondingly"
http://www.airless.com.au/Airless%20Sprayer.pdf
Let's say you are spraying oil-base stain: I would NOT dillute this material.
Oil-base primer: 1 thinner to 4 paint
Latex primer: use a roller and brush so you have a good undercoat for the paint.
Oil-base paint: I would add 1/8 thinner with 1 paint, and be careful of runs
Latex stain: try 1 water to 4 stain
Cheap interior flat latex: 1 water to 4 paint
Latex semi-gloss interior: 1-1/8 to 4 paint and apply very thin coats and let dry between coats.
Cheap exterior flat latex: 1+ to 4 paint, and add more or less water as needed
Good exterior latex paint: use a roller and brush because the purpose of latex exterior pain is to apply heavy protective coat over outdoor materials ... dilluted exterior latex will not give sun and mildew protection.
We use heavy spray equipment and apply exterior latex straight form the can. It's the only way to give lasting job, unless you're doing a temporary playhouse.

The key to successful spraying is to strain your paint to get out the lump and clogs - BEFORE putting paint into the gun.
We always strain the paint unless it's a freshly opened can.
If can was opened yesterday, we strain it.
That because paint gets a dry film that will clog the sprayer.

First you need to mix your material, so you need a couple buckets.
Pour the paint and thinning material in 1 bucket, and then to mix, pour back and forth between two or three buckets. This action will mix the paint thoroughly and save you an hour of rotating a paint stir stick.
Next, you need to strain the paint.
Wash out a 5-gallon bucket.
Buy 5 gallon strainer that fits into bucket.
Pour material into bucket with strainer, lift strainer up and then grab end of strainer and squeeze out all the paint.
Immediately put lid over paint so no drying film will form.
Wash out strainer.
You're ready to put paint in spray gun.

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside


Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

What is the best product to re-paint external stone windowsill


As any good stone mason knows, painting stone is NOT RECOMMENDED!  Stone has a natural beauty and durability that cant really be improved upon.  Its my opinion that paint on stone or brick usually looks horrible.  Especially when the paint gets old and begins to deteriorate.  Stone is a natural material used in building for thousands of years.  It is strong, durable, insulating from heat and cold and allows the structure to "breathe" while keeping out moisture and preventing condensation.  Painting stone stops its ability to "breathe" and effectively closes its pores, which can cause condensation inside walls, break down the stone's surface molecules and premature erosion.       I would recommend power washing or sand blasting the surface to remove the old paint.  Then carefully apply a waterproofer / sealant made for exterior use and stone in particular.  This will protect your stone window sills and lentils from harsh elements like acid rain, bird poop and ice while  allowing the structure to breathe and look beautiful naturally for decades to come.    I would not recommend sanding as this might change the surface of your stone and leave unsightly scratches and uneven surfaces.    You can look online for solutions by googling "stone waterproofing" and "stone cleaning" before deciding what is best for you.  I highly recommend NOT painting exterior stone.  Here are a few helpful results I have found.

How to smooth exterior stone window sills and lintels


try using unsanded grout. you may want to use a bonding agent to make sure it sticks. home depot or lowes. If you want a rougher finish use sanded grout. You should scrape surface down to bare stone. Some times a heat gun will loosen the paint. Use a mask as the paint may contain lead.
