Alarm Setup Help

ADEMCO vista 21iP with a Honeywell 6160RF

The system has only a hardwired motion sensor connected on Zone 2:
ZN 02 ZT 04 P 1 RC 10 HW:RT EL:1

If I secure the system by entering the (XXXX)+4 *maximum*

And then pass in front of the motion sensor it does not trigger the alarm, but can see the sensor red led when it detects movement.

Hello Luigi,

Thank you for posting your question. First, I'd like to know the model number of your motion detector. Next, how is it wired to the panel? Is it a N.O. or N.C. zone? Or, does it use a 2K EOL resistor? If you see the red LED light up upon moving within it's detection path, then the device is receiving the necessary 12 VDC power from the panel. As far as wiring, your red wire should be your positive (+), black is negative (-), and your green & yellow (or white) wires are your zone circuit hooked up to zone 02 on your panel. It could be as simple as the zone being improperly programmed in the panel, or as bad as a wire being severed along the run to the PIR. Maximum [Away--Instant] mode should trigger an alarm immediately on any zone. I see from your zone summary that it is programmed as a zone type #4, which is an "Interior Follower", the correct configuration for a standard motion sensor. Please provide me with your model number and wiring configuration. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Demetri P.

Are you waiting long enough for the arming delay to time out? It runs in _all_ arming modes, even maximum.

The wiring is looking correct. If you simply take the wire off one of the zone terminals, do you get an alarm?

Make sure auto stay is turned off. Is that field 84?

If it does not alarm on removing the wire from the zone input, and the exit delay has timed out, then you have something incorrect on the zone programming, or the zone is bypassed. Those are the only two solutions.

Thank you, the problem was solved. The problem was solved by entering field 84 and setting it to 00.

In that case, the Auto Stay Arming feature was causing your system to revert to stay mode at the end of the exit delay, even after you armed to away, because the system wasn't seeing a delay door opened and closed during the exit delay.
