Question about Home Security

Open Question

I have a florence model FMC-35 entry and intercom system for my condo and am having problems with all 6 units. Some units they can talk but can't hear who's at the door, others they can hear but can't talk. Some of the door buzzers work and some don't. I'm wondering where to start troubleshooting to fix this problem. I have the 18v that goes to the unit. It is a 4-wire system from what I see. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I've got a similar problem. The green light is flashing on the unit. I can here a click when I try either the remote or wall mount switch, but no movement.

FWIW our wall switch has a lock and a light switch and I can't get the light to go on either.

The door moves freely when disconnected from the opener.

My gut tells me the logic board is fried. What I'd really like to find is some sort of trouble shooting guide - Is anyone aware of any trouble shooting information on these lifts?

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.

Sounds like your receiver which is part of the logic board has quit. The wall control is hard wired and doesn't use the receiver.

SOURCE: Hello I have now got 2 (two) of these units

This looks like the Heath Zenith SL6162/63


I have the pdf of install manual if you would like it. This wireless doorbell has over 128 codes that prevent outside interference. Here's part of the manual for changing the code:

Note: Most installations will not require you to change any of the jumpers
on your doorbell.
The doorbell button and chime communicate by using a code that can be
changed by removing and/or adding jumpers on both the doorbell button and
chime. The code is factory set; however, there are 128 selectable codes that
allow you to expand your system and prevent outside interference. Another
wireless doorbell system or other wireless products may cause interference
and the system may not function properly. Follow the instructions below for
setting a new code.
1. Disconnect the power to the doorbell button and chime.
2. Open the cases and locate the jumpers on both the doorbell button and
chime (See illustration).
Attach the back of the
case to the door jamb or
wall. Snap the front of the
button back on.

3. The doorbell button and chime both have eight different jumper locations.
The jumper positions 1 through 7 are used for setting the code.
4. To change the code, add and/or remove jumpers as needed. There are 128
different combinations. It is recommended to only change one jumper at a
time and then check to see if system is functioning properly. Note: Jumpers
in positions 1 through 7 must be exactly the same for both the doorbell button
and chime for this system to function.

My one set of Scala Rider teamset pro will not let the second set talk to it but the microphone works- any solution?

Do the 2 units pair up when you switch on ? If they do try swapping the units to see if the problem changes from one helmet to the other.
If it does then the problem is with one of the units, if it stays with one helmet then it may be a wiring problem to the speakers.If they dont pairup when you switch on try re-setting the pairing and start again. With the unit turned on, press and hold the CTRL button for 6 seconds till the light flashes red then blue rapidly then press the volume up button for 3 secs, the red/blue should flash 5 times to confirm reset done. Then re pair the units for intercom, switch both units on, when they are flashing slow blue on one unit press the CTRL and Intercom Buttons simultaneously for 6 secs so the red light flashes rapidly, repeat for the 2nd unit, they should both go to a solid red light within a few seconds then slow flash blue to show they have paired for intercom use. If this does not cure the problem you will probably have to send the units for repair.
Hope this helps

How can i do two way on panasonic 5.8ghz

These directions are for the KX-TG5451, KX-TG5452 and KX-TG5453.

If you want to use the intercom feature, you need to know the handset number for the unit you want to contact. The base is zero. The handset number is set when you register the handsets. So to communicate with the base, press Intercom on the handset followed 0. The base will ring until someone presses Call to answer it (or one minute whichever comes first). (Alternatively, you can use the up/down arrows to select H1, H2, H3 or Base. Then press the right arrow key.)

To communicate between two handsets, press Intercom and then 2 (from handset 1 or 3 to connect with handset 2). Again the handset will ring for one minute or until the person with handset 2 answers. (To answer, they can press the phone, speaker or intercom button.)

If someone at the base wants to use the intercom, they need to press Select until the appropriate handset number is displayed. Then press Call.

To transfer a call, press Intercom and then select the desired handset. When the intercom message is picked up, indicate that a call is being transferred and press Off at the handset or base that initially answered the call.

For a conference call, initiate the call then press Intercom and select the handset to join the conversation. Once that person picks up, then press Conf. (I believe that Conf is a softkey so check the display.) This is only possible with the handset. (Another handset can join the conference by pressing the phone or speaker button on that unit.)

The manual for the KXTG5453 is available here: .

If you have a different model of the Panasonic 5.8 GHz phone, please add a comment with the model number and I'll try to give the directions for that unit.

I hope this helps.

How to use the intercom system

  • Check your telephone to see if it has an intercom feature. Many wireless phones that come with multiple units allow you to temporarily turn one unit into an intercom to contact other units attached to the same wireless phone system. Depending on the model, you can contact all the other phones at once, or a single specific phone, by pushing the intercom button and entering the other mode. To put the phone back into regular mode, all you have to do is switch off the intercom option.

  • Contact your telephone provider. Some telephone service providers allow landline phones to call themselves, which enables the phone to function as an improvised intercom. You would simply pick up the phone, dial and then close the connection. Once the phone is answered elsewhere in the house, you will have established a line to another phone and you can speak normally on it. This has largely been eliminated due to lack of need as technology advances, but it may still be an option with some providers.

  • Purchase and install an intercom system that will work through an existing phone line. Many of these products, some of which are produced by Panasonic, operate as a halfway point between a traditional intercom system and a phone line. The exterior intercom links directly to the phone line, and you can pick up the phone and talk through the intercom unit outside once the system is properly set up

    To change the time, go to extension 10, while keeping the handset on hook, push intercom, then dial # 6 5 2, enter the new time ie. 102510 (hour, min, seconds), then push the redial key to save. That should do it. to set the day use the intercom # 653 code (1=Sun, 2=Mon, ect). To change the date use the intercom # 651 code (ie. 080510). If that does not do it, you may have a different model key service unit, and you will need to notate which system your using.
