    Hi all,

    Can anyone supply me with a copy of the above installation manual for the old R8 alarm panel. Pre 2000 I believe. If not the full thing even a copy of the page that shows the programming codes. Send to

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi General hope you can help

    I have a veritas R8 alarm but have a problem with the Part Set function as a sensor overlooks the keypad and keeps setting the alarm off unless I omit that zone.

    Is it possible to change this annoying zone so that it is either disconnected or set to entry/exit during part set?

    unfortunately it is a ex-show house and I wasn't supplied with any manuals so downloaded the User Manual from tinternet but I think I need the installation manual

    Cheers in advance

    None of the manuals have helped so far. I've looked on all the well known sites but all the manuals are too recent. My alarm was installed (by me) over 10 years ago. To access the programming menu I enter the engineers code then 00 not PROG. To change the code, it's 01 instead of 60.

    Anyone help out?

    You did enter the programming mode by usin 00 instead of prog on early R8 and R8 plus panels.

    You will probably be able to use a Veritas 8 manual (the panel with the on board keypad) but again there were several software options.

    My advice would be to register with Texacom as an installer here:

    Registration takes a couple of days but once complete you will be able to download manuals and call tech support.

    Of course there would be more chance of receiving a copy if I gave the correct e-mail address!
