I had my Aritech 350 repaired by Koolkid, great job and appreciated him calling over Friday late afternoon to unlock the panel, repair a sensor and get the alarm working. There are still some decent tradesman about.
Here we go again
Another fanclub starting
One post is fine. As long as it doesn't turn into another love story.
Is it posible to add a reed contact to an aritech inertia shock sensor. My alarm is an Aritech CP35, using 4 core wire to each sensor.
Two wires usually the Blue and Black ones go to the tamper slots. The Red and Yellow go to the other contacts. I have supplied an attached crude drawing of the terminal set up. The large square with the circle insert represents the shoch sensor.
My question is, how do I contact a reed contact to this sensor?
Thanks in advance
Very easy, all you have to do is wire the contact in series with the red cable.
So basically you remove the red cable, connect one side of the contact to that and connect the other side back into the sensor. Do the same with the tamper.
Thanks for that

I am trying to connect a reed contact to an aritech inertia shock sensor that is part of a loop, ie, two sets of wires coming from the panel and previous sensor on loop. The wiring is as follows one (1) Blue wire from each set to the tamper terminals. One (1) Red wire from each to the alarm contacts. Black is joined to Black, Yellow joined to Yellow from both wire sets.
I connected the wires as suggested above but the alarm won't set, ie. it activates.
I'd appreciate some advice.
Again this needs to be wired in series on the loop. The two red cables are put across the shock sensor in the zone. What this does if the shock is activated then the loop opens and activates the alarm. To wire a contact into the shock you take one of the cables going into the shock sensor and connect it to one side of the contact. The other cable will go back into the shock terminal where you removed the original cable from.
If this is not working I would suggest getting a meter and set it on continuity to check the magnet is lined up correctly on the contact to close the loop, another issue may be the colours used in the contact itself. Some are red and black for the contact and some are red and yellow. Different manufacturers use different colours.
Any other problems, let us know.
My power went off for a couple of seconds this morning. About 10 mins later the alarm went off. Keypad is completely unresponive. Display just says "CS-XXX keypad V1.5".
I turned off the circuit breaker to turn off alarm and I'm not getting the red power light.
it needs a new battery, 12v 7Ah should fit
Thanks Jnealon. I disconnected the battery and reconnected it. That seem to have fixed it for now. Might pick up a new battery after Christmas. Are they expensive?
Try some of the suppliers here
Keep away from maplins and the likes. They will charge you double or treble the price .
IGT in Lucan or MEW in Leixlip, beside lidl. MEW might be a bit expensive
Probably best to sort it out before christmas, the last thing you want is your alarm going bananas when everywhere is closed
