hi guys, just bought a Visonic Powermax COMPLETE wireless alarm system, I understand it is same as the Visonic Powermax PLUS, just has a new panel and the powersupply is internal.
I want to install it myself so just looking for tips before I go ahead and install. So here are a few of my initial questions.
1) are there any set rules for the height of installing PIR sensors. I mean how far down should they be from ceiling.
2) door contact installation, again how high should these be place on door. I was thinking around 4-5 foot high.
3) as the Visonic Complete doesn't come with a power adaptor, so it needs to be hardwired into a fuse spur. will 3A fuse spur be ok for this and can the power be taken from my lighting circuit (1.5mm cable) - planning to stick a junction box and then a fuse spur from which I will just get a round flex cable straight into Powermax Complete.
4) telephone cable - as you know we have a number of wires in the telephone cable so just need to understand which two coloured cables should I use. Do I insert a telephone junction box to connect to main telephone cable or just stick a RJ11 on the other end and just stick it in a telephone socket.
if there are any other tips you can offer, please do so.
