Hey everyone, I’m looking for a paradox 307 dci to borrow? or does anyone know how I can program a key switch through the keypad? What I’m trying to achieve is have a switch that will arm or disarm the alarm that way I can connect it to openHAB with a zwave relay.

Hi, have you got a spare zone? You could make a keyswitch arm/disarm controlled with the relay

Yes either a keyswitch zone or using PGMs

This is exactly what i was trying to setup. I couldn’t find out how to do it so had to get an alarm company out to do it. If anyone is curious it cost 280 just for the programming and 100 for a zwave relay.

Yea I figured as much. They wouldn’t give me the installers code. It had been changed from the default one so I didn't have much of a choice without wiping the alarm. That sounded like way too big of a job for me to try and program myself.

That kind of behaviour annoys me so much. I install alarms and if the client is paying for it (and not leasing it) they can have the installation code-- it's their property!

Yea I wasn’t happy but was pretty powerless. I had the alarm installed just over 18 months ago and paid fully for it so it’s not even like it was a different person or the house has changed hands. I won’t be using these guys again! They are a pretty big company in Christchurch too.

Well, if you ever add an IP150 module or need help reprogramming it (hopefully they haven't locked it - that'd be a real dick move) give a shout. The settings are pretty simple to program - and easier using babyware on a computer with the IP module or a USB adapter

Funny you mention the ip150. When the tech came out he managed to brick mine by pulling the fuse on the transformer and also the battery at the same time. He tried to deny that it was working in the first place. I got it replaced at no charge but I’m guessing that they have just charged me for another. the bill was quite a lot more than I was expecting considering he just pushed a few buttons on the keypad to program up the key switch zone. The bill just says programming key switch.

Yeah I'd say they billed you for another one too. Probably managed to short it somehow. If you know the serial of your panel I can send you a link for BabyWare and you can have a look at the programming on a windows based PC yourself. The serial is on a sticker on the main control panel  - you might also have it in e-mails from the insite gold application. 8 characters long so you take the last 8 (the sticker might have 9 or 10 characters in a row)
