Two alarms on one PC1864 panel

Is it possible with the panel to have a separate alarm siren for partition 2 as compared to partition1. I'd like to have partition 2 be unmonitored (no reporting), but to sound a local siren very distinct from the main alrm sirens...

Use the pgm terminals at the panel to set a pgm output for partition 2. See 1.6 in the manual on page 4 and programming sections 501 / 551 on page 48.

I am very confused as to how to set this up. Say I have zone 11 door contact that I want to make a separate partition and sound a separate alarm when activated.

First thing you need to do is enable partition 2, section 201 turn 2 on.
Next set zone 11 to partition 2. Assuming you enrolled it correctly and it is set to partition 1 right now, go to section 203 and turn off 3 (this is zone 11) then go to section 211 and turn on 3. This sets zone 11 to partition 2.

Now for your siren, wire positive to AUX+ and negative to PGM2 terminals.
Program section 009, 19 01 (sets pgm 2 to burglary siren output)
Section 501 be sure 3 is on and all others off.
Section 552, turn on 2, turn off 1 or anything other than 2.

Now when you arm partition 2, it will have its own siren

That was a great explanation. Know I can understand the manuall and apply this info to other zones! I will update thread when I have it completed!!

I bought a DSC wireless door sensor that I need to enroll as this new zone / partition 2, using my RFK5501. Could you outline that process if you have the time. Thank you!

You can use your pk5500 (alpha keypad) to enroll or program your wireless contact as long as your rf keypad is connected to the system. Either way the steps are the same.

On a side note, when you enter programming on the alpha pad, you may see 3 dashes waiting for you to enter a number or you may see words describing what option you are at. If you hold the police panic key for 3 seconds, it will switch between the 2 modes. I prefer the 3 lines mode myself and it is necessary to be in this mode to enter LCD programming. So anyhow.....

Enter programming and enter section 804, enter zone number 11, enter 6 character serial number ( * key changes from numbers to letters), press # to exit 804. Then enter attribute section 111 turn on 8 for wireless

Lets say the serial number is 26E5A3 just example, here is the sequence:
*8 (code) 804 11 26*5*5*1*3 # 111 8 #

Still in programming, set to partition 2
Enter
201 2on # 203 3off # 211 3on #

Thats it. You could do 898 wireless enrollment with rfk5500, but I recommend using 804 and is necessary with the 5501. It is easier to program these panels than it is to decipher thru the manual but the sections are all in an order that makes sense once you get used to it.

Thank you. I didn't realize that you could program wireless entries on the RFK5500 keypad from the PK5501 (or is it only from the PK5500? I presume you meant the PK5501 LCD as PK5500 is the same as the RFK5500)

Is there a entry on the keypad that will enable a user to see all the wireless enrollments with serial number and zone configured?

You can enroll devices using any keypad, as long as the wireless receiver is up and running. The RF model keypads are functionally two devices sharing a housing. It's _easier_ to program with the 5500 model keypad because you don't have to spend time translating the data being displayed on the LED or fixed language keypad models.

You can view the any programming contents using the instructions on page 8-9 in the installer manual: http://www.gargoylesecurity.com/Down...STALLATION.pdf

What is the difference between 804 and 898 wireless enrollment?

898 uses a predefined template to "automatically" enroll devices to the next available wireless slot. Useful if you are enrolling a number of standard door/window contacts; not as useful for just a couple of devices (no real time saved...)

dave9, just to clarify, you stated in your post #5 below that you were using a rfk5501. As MrRonFL explained that the 5500 keypads are alpha (words on display) and easier to use to program with. The 5501 is a fixed or simple display with mostly only numbers. The rfk ones contain a wireless receiver where the pk ones do not.

You can use either to program as long as your receiver keypad is connected to the system and the receiver module is recognized. It is just easier to use the alpha pad to see more of what you are doing most of the time, especially the serial number, ect.

One thing I forgot to add previously tho, you must set a zone type for this zone 11 in section 001
Enter programming section 001 and it will display a 2 digit number representing zone type for zone 1. You can retype it or > over to the next 2 digit number for zone 2 and so on. YOU MUST COUNT CAREFULLY thru each zone until you get to 11 and set the zone type (probably 03). There is no shortcut for this that I know of unless you did use the 898 enrollment as it prompts you to enter the zone type during enrollment process.
