Hi all, new to this forum, but t thought I'd join up, hoping for some assistance.

I've just installed a Texecom prem 48. All with EOL wiring. One 8xp, 16 zones being used. 2 contacts share a zone on each garage. Other than that everything will be independent.

I've been struggling with installing a panic alarm (no instructions 're which contact is which). The two alarm contacts are obvious though. It's a normally closed pa, When in use I'm getting 2k2 resistance and secure on my panel, when either the back is pulled off the pa, or the button depressed I get 6.9k. If the wire is disconnected then open circuit. I think my query more pertains to the fact that with other pir's etc they have a dedicated tamper switch within the pir, so you take the back off and the alarm will state tamper. With these, I believe it's just the magnet across the alarm contacts bring removed which activates either tamper or alarm state.

Wiring, blue to a1 on pa, 4k7 over to a2, 2k2 from a2 across to side terminal I believe to be tamper, yellow back to panel tamper

My panel seems to only be able to identify two states, active/alarm or secure. I expected to get tamper when I pulled a wire out of the wago222 I was using. But instead got active/alarm, do the resistance values sound right for each state? I've set it as panic alarm as the zone type, there are some 24hr options too, but the panic option appears to be programmed to have the correct 24hr parameters.

I plan on connecting two of these on one zone once I'm certain the wiring is right. Technically they are working, but it's the messages back to panel I'm not sure about.

Many thanks all
