Shock sensors on Accenta alarm

Hi all, just installed a Accenta mini g4 alarm into the house. Its a uk version, ie not north american. Everything wired up properly (I think!!), but cant get the shock sensors to work. The door contacts/PA are all working fine, but the shock sensors dont trigger the alarm. Do they need to be set up from the lcd panel. I thought they needed to be given a sensitivity setting , but I didnt see any option to do that with this alarm. Any help gratefully received!!!

Welcome to the forums.

Are all the points hard wired, wireless or some of both ?
You said the door contacts are working but not the shock sensors.
Are the shock sensors wireless ?
Have you programmed them into the alarm.... if wireless ?

If wired..... sensors need 12vdc to operate. Connection with a four wire cable is required.

Shock sensors can be very fast (alarm condition lasts only a few milliseconds). The zones on the alarm control may be programmed to require a longer alarm condition (say, 750 milliseconds for example) to reduce false alarms from transients. I would suggest digging into the paper for the shock sensors and panel.
