Replace recessed door sensor

I have 2 NX458 door sensors that do not have field replacement batteries that have died.

Is there a affordable replacement reassessed door sensor that has a replaceable battery . My alarm panel is a NX8 / 529A .

On the keypad it is reporting these zones as lost so I am assuming it is bad batteries .

Any recommendations or help would be great :-)

Thank you for your help , I will find a supplier and put in an order.

I have not programmed this system in years so if possible how do I un enroll the old sensors and enroll these.

Which model is your wireless receiver? There are slight variations, depending on which specific one you have.

Thank you for the help

Here is a sticker on the back of the wireless unit if it helps (attached to post)

On the front I can make out TN 448

I can take some more photos of it would help.

Most likely a NX-448

This should be the manual: http://ssts.net.in/images/products/w...n%20Manual.pdf

The steps for deleting transmitters is on page 11.
Enrolling the new one is on page 10.

Thank you Mr Ron, for the manual and advise I will play more when they arrive.

Could I seek advise my wife is now pregnant and getting from the downstairs garage to the upstairs keypad might be a bit of a problem.

I might be able to get wires to the garage but what wireless or key fobs might be an option ?

Since you have the wireless, a keyfob would work just fine. In an ideal world, adding a proper keypad on the upper level would be a smart move.

Thanks Mr Ron ,
your last comment did you mean maybe I should put a keypad in the garage ? That is connected to the basement ?

the other two keypads are in the master bedroom and on the main first floor.

Yes, I misread your post.
An additional keypad in the location nearer to where your wife is entering the property is probably an desired solution.

Sorry to ask more questions MrRon the TX-E221 arrived just a little confused about how to enroll them based on the manual.

Disabling them seems easy

"3" is the Lost door contact due to low battery
"7 "is Lost door contact due to low batter

Remove transmitter

*8 Enters programming Mode
**** Enter my Installer/Programmer code

(Module settings are set to 35 all settings set to off)

35# This is the module number set by the DIP switch settings
3# Enters zone 3 as this is the first zone that needs to be disabled
1 Changes transmitter feature and turns transmitter off
*# Saves Settings

Repeat and disable zone 7

[EXIT] [EXIT] To get out of programming mode

For enrolling them I am just a little confused about the relationship between Partition,locations,zones and how to add them back in to the correct zones.




enrolling device
*8 Enters programming Mode
**** Enter Installer/Programer code

(Module settings are set to 35 all settings set to off)

35# This is the module number set by the DIP switch settings
0# ???? (This is the part I am not sure on and need help on)
3* This sets zone 3 for door contact
Trigger door contact to enroll
0#
7* This sets zone 7 for door contact
Trigger door contact to enroll
[EXIT] [EXIT] To get out of programing mode

Zones are the protection zones. With wireless devices, each transmitter is an individual zone. Partitions are ways to _group_ protection zones into "virtual sub systems".

Since you are only working with the transmitter/receiver portion of your system, all of the zone settings programmed in the main alarm control remain untouched.

In the case of the receiver you are working with, once you are in that module's programming, the 0# is the location designated for enrolling transmitters. That's why knowing your receiver model is important, because some of the later models use a different location for this process.

Thanks Mr Ron, I think I am starting to understand this system a little better thanks to you.

I have a installer code , and I have the master code , should I update the installer code, the original installer gave it to me . If so where is this set ?

I also have 3 keyfobs listed in the zone list(23,24,25). Are they the 2 keypads and the alarm panel or could they be keyfobs that the original home owner still has?

Honestly, the only thing that the installer code can normally do is access programming, so there is no real push to change it.

As always thanks Mr Ron for your advise and for sharing your knowledge and time.

Do you have any feed back on the keyfobs listed zones, As this is a old foreclose property you never know if the original owners might come back one day .


As soon as we have cooler weather I will look to install another keypad like you advised, In terms of wire what gauge do you recommend ?

If you don't have the keyfobs, delete them from programming.
