Hi

Iím trying to work out what Iím missing here

I have just added a WS4945 Wireless Door/Window Sensor, but itís not Working, itís not showing any status changes. Here is what I have done so far....

I have added it as new Zone (08)
I have assigned the Zone an 8 for a wireless attribute
I have successfully entered the code to register the sensor
I have assigned the new Zone to Partition 1

I can see it listed as a zone but when I trip it, I would expect to see the zone status change but it does not - it just stays as closed (I have a PTK5507 keypad)

I decided to test it via section 904 and the performance/range of the wireless sensor is fine and if it trip it it sees it and everything has come back as the range being  ĎGoodí

Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions as to why the new door/window sensor is not showing anything itís not even showing. a Zone Tamper is I remove the case to it ?

What zone type did you set it as in 001?

Applicable sections programming wireless sensors...
001 - type for zones 1-16
1xx - xx is zone#, turn bit 8 ON
202 - assign zones 1-8 to partition 1
804 xx - xx is zone#, enter ESN

Hi @AlarmMike

Thanks for responding.

I have set the zone type on this zone (zone 8) as  [05] Internal Stay/Away

Whatís crazy is if I select it (zone 8) via section 904 and trip it, it reports the signal as good, which suggests itís seeing it ok. So Iím lost why outside of that any trips (or zone tampers) are not showing up on the keypad.

One thing I have not tried is a full reboot of the panel, as due to its location itís not easy to get to..

Hmm.

As long as the serial number is in, and the wireless attribute is enabled (section 108, bit 8 is on) and it's assigned to the partition, all should be ok. 

I've heard that assigning wireless transmitters over zones that have hardwired inputs (like 8) can cause problems.  And it drives me up a wall when installers do that and I want to use that hardwired input to add something.

Also, points that are type 5 interior stay/away won't actually cause the system to show not ready.  The green check mark will stay on, but the keypad will show it as open.
