Replacing a VIPER in an alarm system

Postby DIY_Junkie » Tue Jun 29, 2010 10:28 am

Hi there,
Can anyone help me on this one? I've had a new front door fitted (white) and wanted to change the original shock sensor & magnetic contacts (brown) to white. I have 8 core wire, 2 of which (orange and brown) are feeding a panic alarm adjacent to the door. That leaves me 6 wires. Original set up and proposed set up shown in the wiring diagram image. Questions are...1) Where should the green wire now go? and 2) Should there be only 1 white wire going into the 'ALARM' contacts?

Google for wiring diagram at ""

Thanks in advance!

Simply Build It

Even if I did know I would not publish on a web site. The whole idea is that people can't find out how to disable the alarm. As a result many firms use their own wiring diagram so it is not as easy for the would be thief to work out how to by-pass it.
I would advise you also remove that wiring diagram before it gets into the wrong hands.
