Any Home Security Alarm Experts Out There?
I just purchased a small and simple First Alert/Security First wireless home security alarm (HSS202). I came with a control box, motion sensor and door/window magnet, and keychain on/off transmitter. I added their wireless keypad as well. I installed it on a small one room shop I built and it works great. The control box has a small siren built into it for inside the shop, but I wanted something louder to mount in the attic. I bought a Elk-45 self contained siren and mounted it. Being a wireless alarm system, the only way to arm/disarm is by using the keychain transmitter or the wireless keypad. It works fine. I wired in the Elk-45 to the control box and when I trip the alarm the control box siren and the Elk come alive. Really loud, exactly what I was wanting. The only problem is once the alarm is sounding with the ELK hooked up, I can't turn off the alarm with either the keychain or the keypad, I have to unplug the control box.[B)] When I disconect the Elk, trip the alarm, it turns on and off fine. Basically, once the Elk gets going there is no stopping it, until the alarm turns itself off at the 10min. I have it set for. Any ideas what could be going on? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
