IDS showing ready - cannot arm

Post by Pierre_P »

Issue comes up a lot

My keypad is showing ready but I cannot arm the alarm system, why?

The IDS816, 832 and X64 have got dedicated panic inputs
This inputs needs to be monitored by a 3.3K resistor(orange, orange, orange)

Panic buttons must either be wired in series(recommended) with the resistor in series or parallel with the resistor in parallel
If not used place the resistor across the P+ and - terminals

This will sort out the ready light and then can use system as normal
