Question about Mace 80355 Wireless Home Security System
It says I have an open zone how do I fix that
Posted by Anonymous on
An open zone is a detection zone that has a broken or loose wire in which the end of line resistor is not being seen from the panel.
each zone wire loop is constantly monitored using a resistor at the very end. this resistor is a specific value and is usually different for each brand of system. the resistor is either attached to the 2 wires at the end, or more commonly installed at the last device on that loop - again across the 2 wires.
as long as the panel can "see" the resistor there, the zone is normal.
if the 2 wires are shorted together, the zone is in alarm.
if either of the wires are broken, the zone goes into an "open" condition, meaning the circuit is open and the resistor can no longer be "seen".
fixing the open circuit involves using an ohm meter to read the resistance of the wiring and tracing the wiring from one end to the other to find the "broken" wire or loose connection.
it is not an incredibly hard process, but does take some skill. if you are not handy with an electrical meter, calling someone who is would be your best bet.

results in fixing the date and time on your computer, double click on the
taskbar at the bottom of your Windows screen. This is located on the bottom
right-hand corner of your screen. The date and time control panel on your
computer will automatically open.
Double click the clock. A smaller date and time properties menu will open as soon as you have double clicked on the time at the bottom of your Windows computer screen. To set the date and time on your personal computer, the process is quite simple. You can use your mouse to click on the correct day, month, and year. You will also see an image of a clock on the right-hand side of the properties menu that will display the corrected time that you have entered. When you are pleased with the corrections, simply click on the OK button on your computer screen. Most modern computers automatically adjust for daylight savings, but several older models do not. As a result, you will need to update the time as mentioned.
Adjust the time zone on your computer by clicking once on the time zone tab that is displayed on the same properties menu that opened when you clicked on the clock at the bottom of your computer screen. To set your time zone, you can choose the correct time zone from the drop down menu. Use the small arrow to show the options in the time zone menu on your computer. Once again, you can click OK when you are finished. If you choose to have your computer automatically updated for daylight savings, then be sure that the small box at the bottom of the time zone menu is checked.
