Question about Skylink Group Home Security

Open Question

Skylink FS-433W Flood Sensor when hooked up it seems to send a signal to the panel I see the red light blink on the sensor and the panel but it does not trigger the alarm. can you give me any ideas as

Also all other sensors work and setoff the alarm. The door sensors and the motion sensors both trigger the alarm to sound off loud and clear. So the system itself is working it seems it just doesnt pickup the signal from the flood sensor but I do see the red light flicker on both the sensor and system panel. It is almost so fast that it doesnt stay on long enough to trigger the alarm. Is there an adjustment to hold the signal longer. Thank You Bill S.

SOURCE: Eerie Orange/Red Glow Inside Floodlights (bulbs)

I think this is by design. Look at the instruction manual and it should tell you. This doesn't make sense that they should be on, but they may have a reason for it in their design. Now to the bulb saver technology thought, you are mostly right here. There is a lot of "strain" if you will on the filament when starting it up and it does cause a weakening over time. You will notice that when a bulb goes out, it usually happens right when you turn it on. The same thought here. I suppose in this device, that a constant voltage (low) is better and more efficient than zero voltage to 120 volts. They probably take into account the sensor will be used several times a day thus making the need for this kind of set up even more demanding.

SOURCE: Door won't close, blinks 10 times, sensor light yellow

Anytime the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem or the wiring to them. Nothing else causes this symptom.

SOURCE: Motion sensor disarms itself

the system is set up to bypass the motion if a door hasnt been opened during the exit delay. you can either open and close a door everytime you arm the system or if you have access to the installer you can delete option 52 and that will fix your problem

SOURCE: Skylink Sc-100 has no sound

Hi.

Before testing the security system should be reset. This systems are programmable and sound can be muted. Reset is done cutting power and removing internal battery.

I know it may look silly, but check the solder joints and wiring to the speaker. Check if there is any voltage going to the speaker.

SOURCE: my red light sensor is blinking constantly and the

Neighbor's cat got into my garage when I left the door up. He knocked into one of the sensors which now blinks red (the light on the other sensor is a constant green). Now I can open the door with the remote but I can't close it with the remote. I have to hold the wall button to close it. Can you please tell me how to re-align the sensors? Thank you.

Why doesn't it connect to sensors?


From your description, it seems that the transmitter section of SC-001 is working properly. What you have done to reinstall the system may not be thorough. And it is unclear whether the control panel is not responding to keychain transmitter or sensor or both.

I assume that you have followed the instructions in the manual to clear the zones. Simply unplugging the AC power and removing battery will not clear the zones. Note that sensors can be programmed into zones 1 to 4. Keychain transmitter can be programmed into zone 5 only. There is no LED indication for zone 5.

Secondly, follow the instructions to program the sensor or keychain transmitter to the control panel. The corresponding zone LED will be flashing during programming. There is sound indication as well for successful programming of the device.

If you do not program the sensor or keychain transmitter to the control panel after clearing the zones, the control panel will no longer respond to the device.

The dialer and siren is not cleared on the control panel. They can be cleared only from the dialer or siren itself.

I have motion sensor flood lights that are not turning on. I put it on test & it does turn on. But when switched over to 1, 5 or ten minutes it won't turn on. The red light on the sensor does turn


April, you didn't mention whether you did the test at night. In addition to motion sensing, the flood light also detects darkness before allowing the bulbs to light up. If it is night, check also that some other light source is not illuminating the sensor. If so, that could fool the sensor into thinking it is daytime.

I HAVE A UTILITECH PRO 180 #0205881 AND IT BLINKS WHEN ITS ON


Usually when a motion sensor light blinks LED or otherwise it means that the motion sensor is shot. The light itself is most likely good and for whatever reason you got a bad sensor upon purchase.

Own a Heath zenith sh 5105 motion detector flood light. I wired it to plug into an outlet. Flood light comes on when I plug it in and stays on. Seems as if the sensor isn't working. Do I have it wired...


look to see how you have it wired, most sensor lights have many wires to put together, if it is not wired already from factory, you need to look to see how you have it wired, most sensors have three wires one black one red and one white, black wire goes to power, red wire goes to lamp, white goes to neutral, after all is wired you should have only 3 wires a black a white and a green, black to power white to home neutral and green to ground

Alarm not beeping when doors are open. led on door goes red when door is opened and alarm box has red and green lights when alarm is actived but not chimes or alarm when doors are opened


When a zone has both red and green lights on, it means that it is in delay mode. That means when the sensor is triggered, the system will wait for a predefined time interval (30 seconds) for user to reset the trigger. During this time interval, the system will not beep or alarm. But after that, if user does not reset the trigger, system will go off.

User can reset the trigger from keypad or by remote.

My Mitsubishi projection TV will not produce audio or video


Hi,
Two things are involved to cause that problem, tv remote control and remote sensor in tv.
Upon verification of remote working, it would be confirm that remote sensor in tv is defective and need to be replaced.
Remote control sends infra red light signal to tv and we can not see that light with naked-eye, so need digital camera or cell phone camera to see it by watching remote front through camera, press any keys on remote, if you see infra red light is blinking in remote front that means remote is working and remote sensor in tv will be replaced.
If no light blinking on pressing remote buttons confirm that this remote is defective and buy new remote.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Unit will not operate when turned on and a red light pulsates next to the


That blinking light is an error code. It will blink two different numbers such as three blinks, pause, then four blinks. Once you get the combination of blinks, look at the wiring diagram pasted on one of the panels for a diagnostic chart. It may help you pin point the problem area.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

Your furnace has a diagnostic chart on the reverse of the lower panel incorporated in the wiring diagram. One blink tells you that it is a failure but wont tell you where to start looking.
