Reset the DSC Alexor to factory default

by admin

Now here are the areas in the programming you need to do it. But remember you still need the Installer Code. If you don’t have it theirs a reason. Unless your alarm guy went out of business (unlikely) you need to pay for your panel and get it from him.

But if you don’t care: Hard Reset
A hard reset performs the identical function as above. It is used when the Installer code is unknown or the keypad is
not communicating with the alarm system. See steps below:
• Power down the system.
• Remove the front cover of the PC9155.
• On the terminal block, jumper I/O terminal 1 to I/O terminal 2 with nothing else connected to these two terminals.
• Power up the system for 20 seconds. (5 beeps sound to indicate that the reset has been successful).
• Power down the system and remove the jumper.
Label programming is stored in the system and locally at the keypads.
To retain label programming after performing a system reset (hard or soft) you must rebroadcast the labels by entering

[996] Restore Wireless Default Programming All programming in section

[804] Wireless Device Programming returns to the factory defaults.

[998] Restore Panel Default Programming All programming in the PC9155 returns to the factory defaults, except for the Wireless Device Programming sections.

[999] Restore Factory Default Programming
All programming, including wireless device programming, returns to the factory defaults.

Resetting the System to Factory Defaults
6.4 Troubleshooting
Resetting the alarm system returns it to the factory programmed defaults.
All programmed information including wireless enrollment, telephone numbers etc. will be lost.
• The Installer code changes back to [5555].

Reset
• To enter ‘System Default’ from the “Ready to Arm Screen”:

How To Connect Your Alexor To Other Contacts

So I needed to connect more than two hardwire contacts so I used a Wireless Flood Detector WS4985 then just used the hardwire contact terminals to connect the contact. works fine.

you can also do this for any kind of contact like door, window, or even sprinkler flow switch for fire alarm monitoring.  Some links to

The First Post

by admin

Welcome to my DSC Alexor Blog, First off I’m not going to try to sell you anything but fair warning i’m in the alarm business. I wanted to start this blog because I think this system should be a self installed system by the end user. But having done it myself many times, it’s not that easy! So here I go starting a blog to help everyone else get an Alexor Alarm System installed and working. That’s it.
