Westinghouse Security Systems

I have an old Westinghouse Security Systems that works internally fine, but it's developed a "short" on the telephone line as far as my Internet connection is concerned. I've since disconnected the device from my telephone line and discontinued my monitoring service, but the unit keeps alarming that the telephone connection is bad. The system works just fine as an internal, non-reporting alarm system -- How can I disarm the telephone reporting function of the device? I have the original Owners Manual, but it does not cover this.

You need the installers code to be able to turn off one of the options that enables/disables phone line monitoring.

An easy fix is to get a dsl filter for your system and reconnect it back up to the telephone line.

How do you remove the control panel on Simon 3?


There is a couple steps in removing this panel. First, unplug the unit and then locate the tab on the top of the unit, it has to be pushed down. When the tab is pushed down the first faceplate should drop down, exposing the keypad with the menu options. Second, you need to get a small flat head screwdriver and put it under the clip at the top of the panel. You can locate it by finding where your pushed the original tab down; it's right below that. Once you have your screwdriver under the small clip, push the clip up and pull the 2 faceplate towards you. Finally, after the second plate is down, unscrew/unplug the wires from the panel, unscrew the mounting panel and your done! Beware, depending on how your alarm is hooked this can cause a short to your household telephone lines causing them not to work!

Can a vista 20p be programed to send an email alert along with the telephone call alerts How? What do I need to add to system?


You will need to add a Honeywell 7847i Internet communicator, and Honeywell's TotalConnect package. With this, you can switch your monitoring (if you system is monitored) to IP based and get rid of your land line if you like. This will give you email and text notifications as well as system control from a smartphone. There used to be a Vista IGM module available but that has been discontinued to get everyone on TotalConnect. Links for the IP communicator and TotalConnect are below. Hope this helps.

I may have a solution for you. I had the same kind of problems when I upgraded the NS840 Security Blackbox Main Program from 2.0.0 to 3.0.1. From reading in other places I really don't think the 3.0.1 software works at all as far as being able to connect to your system remotely. Something about the engineers sabotaging the software before they went out of business. Luckily I still have the 2.0.0 software that I downloaded last year. So I uninstalled the 3.0.1 and installed the old 2.0.0 and guess what? It works as advertised! You'll need to download and unzip the program installation file here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/389704/ns840_2.0.0_setup.rar

Contant Beeping on alarm


The Fail To Comm message is not related to your low battery problem. A Fail to Communicate occurs when the alarm system tries to send a signal (alarm, trouble or restore) to a monitoring service but can't. Most often the causes are telephone related. Has your system been disconnected from it's phone line? Have you recently changed phone services from your main carrier to an internet provider that provides VOIP service? Sometimes alarm systems have a hard time communicating over these services. Whatever the reason for the

Westinghouse Security System beeping


Hi,
Hot is ok in an alarm box, especially inside where you see your finned heatsink and capacitors, if it beeps it might be because you have a communication problem, a weak backup battery or else. Check if you have any codes being displayed on your LCD or LED and check in the signification in your user manual if any. If you are connected to an alarm central they should be able to tell you what is the problem by connecting remotelly to your system. If not, well I need more details.!

Thanks,

Westinghouse Security System


Download the manual. I can't remember if it is in the User's Manual or the Programming Manual but a sequence to reset the security code is detailed in one of them. Also, it soulds like the telephone line was wired through the system for full seizure. To defeat this, you will need to take it out of the phone lines at the outside telco box. How it is wired is that the alarm panel intercepts the telephone line first and then feeds the circuit back out to the main junction where the telco comes into the house.
