Paradox alarm panel with keypads
« on: June 10, 2019, 06:16:50 PM »
Paradox 1728EX board
ZX-8 expansion board
2 x 10 zone keypads
Metal panel box (new)

Working 100%.  I have configured the two keypads to act as zones.  The 1728 has 5 zones, the keypad are zones 6 & 7 and the expander will give you 8, 9 and 10

Collect from me in Cape Town

Hi Chris
Will I be able to use this to extend our MG5050 to an outside cottage? If yes can I send a courier to collect?

No, this is a much older panel and not compatible.  If you do not have enough wired zones, you can fit a ZX8 expander.  Otherwise wireless devices and if the range is a bit suspect, a RPT-1 wireless transceiver

You could fit the panel in the cottage.  Then connect a relay to the siren output.  This will give you a normally closed loop which can connect to the MG5050

If wiring is impossible, an alternative is to connect an ET long range transmitter to the PGM output of the 1728EX and have it trigger for 3 seconds on an alarm

Then, an ET receiver can be attached to the MG5050 and this will do the trick.  The long range ET transmitter will do 100m easily, or else about 5 walls

This zone on the MG5050 should be a 24 hour burglary zone

That sounds do-able, we can run a wire with some digging up of driveway. I'm in a full-day workshop, will send you a PM later or tomorrow. If you get another taker then no need to hold for me.

I think I got a spare zx8 zone extending board lying around here for the mg5050.
Push harder than yesterday if you want tomorrow to be different.

Had a friend wanting an alarm for his new flat but he has not collected it yet,  Do you mind if I delay a few more days and will ask him? 

I know he had to start his buying from scratch again since the flat he bought became the subject of a deceased estate and cannot be disposed of
