I’d like to install an additional 44 watt siren. Find all posts by taz Assuming that you have a 15 watt siren supplied with the kit, it will be drawing about ma. Did you miss your activation email? As others have stated in pervious posts, questions regarding the alarm panel are best suited for the diysecurityforum. Many panels supply a 12V DC output on alarm from the bell terminals for “sirens” which is a speaker with a built-in amplifier. Do i need to do any setup or programming for the siren???

Connecting an external siren to a DSC 1832
Your description of “44 watt”, makes me think that you got an Elk44, which is not a siren, but a speaker. You will sirfn to go into section zone 1 and make sure the first attribute 1 is displayed on and not blank I think! Seems that the has no on board driver, and the bell output is limited to a relatively small ma.
December 03, December 06, Once i am done with rest of the programming then i will work on calling cell phone when dzc zone opens Strangely, I did posted the questions on DIY but no response That’s great, thanks 18832 much! I have 9 wireless zones and 1 wired set up. My question is how and where do I connect the module to the control panel as well as the siren. These steps work on my with RFK keypad.
No Siren and issues on DSC
December 04, Smart Home, made easy. What do you have set as the definition for each zone? Gushing water in heating pipes. Newsletter Sign-Up Signup Email address. Siren is not working when the system is armed and instant zone is opened. Same thing with the strobe.
As others have stated in pervious posts, questions regarding the alarm panel are best suited for the diysecurityforum. Now only left is calling cell phone when the zone are opens Also the if the zone attributes are set for silent alarm, then you will not hear anything!
This will help you decide if you need an extra power supply to power the sirens in alarm.
Connecting an external siren to a DSC Check the manufacturers specs and see if they exceed your available current limit. Do i need to do any setup or programming for the sirren As for the 44 Watt siren, check the manufacturers specifications on how much current it draws in alarm.
Depending on your installation – if your zones are wired with EOL resistors – you may need to install a ohm resistor in series with the -R terminal. If it is truly just a “speaker” it will just POP when voltage from the terminals is applied. OK lets sort the chime out first! I currently have one siren, came with the kit, on a DSC Many panels supply a 12V DC output on alarm from the bell terminals for “sirens” which is a speaker with a built-in amplifier.
I guess this should be attached to a zone connection, but how would that work as I guess this goes to 0V when a tamper is detected at the bell box?
DSC Additional siren
I have a feeling you will not get much help on this in this forum. I’ve got a lot of info to digest. Posted In Designing Kitchens and Bathrooms.
You have one siren that came with your “kit”. That’s the specs for
