New to compass downloader and the Hayes and I could use a little help dialing in and uploading.
I thought that I had everything set but the panel will not answer the phone from a campus phone or offsite. I think its a simple step that I am missing.

after going through a long process on the phone with honeywell I managed to program descriptors manually for some factory programmed switches. but the monitoring station does not receive the correct alarm codes. So I am still currious as to how to get compass rolling.

The reporting codes will self fill when you program in the zone definitions.

All you have to do is program your reporting format such as Contact ID or SIA, and make sure your zones are programmed for delay, instant, interior, etc.

You can go in and manually change them (as in the case when you have an interior zone programmed instant, it will come in as perimeter). You should provide the monitoring station with a zone description sheet anyway. They can then enter that info into their monitoring software package so that when "zone 1" comes in, they can tell you on the phone it's the "garage entry door."

You don't even need compass for this, it can be done manually at the keypad.

Thanks for the help so far. By having our own monitoring station Ihave already taken care of the readout at the alarm monitor. however the three alarms I connected are identical at the monitoring station and at the alarm keypad they do not show the descriptors they only show the type of alarm and the zone number. this is kind of bad because they are panic alarms and are located in different offices. slowly but surely I am getting closer and closer. :rolleyes:

don't know if it will help but inorder to go in and program the zone it was option 133 as opposed to the xl-4c which is option 125 I think but most of the other functions are the same.

I don't know FBII panels all that well but I do know they have different LCD keypads. They have a couple of fixed icon units and the XK-7 is the programmable English label keypad.

Are you saying you are unable to program a zone label in the keypad?

Is it programmable or the fixed icon (which only displays zone numbers).

That's what I was thinking TP but I'm like you as far as not being all that familiar with FBI systems.

I know some of the Ademco LCD keypads are not capable of displaying "Plain English" and I'm thinking that may be the case here.
