Advice on setting Alarm and detecting it's state


I have a 10 year old Texecom Veritas R8+ and I would like to know how to set/unset the Alarm and detect whether it is set.

It's installation manual is here:

It shows the pins to connect to a "Communicator":


I don.t know what the Set/Unset pin does, does anyone know whether I can connect to this to detect whether the Alarm is set?

As for setting the Alarm, I guess the only way to do that is to program a zone to be a Keyswitch?

  • Hi Jason, did you find a solution to this?

    I've been working on my Veritas R8 and setting up zones was pretty simple. Programming the key switch seemed fine too - now I just want to sense the armed state and if the siren is sounding.

    Any advice?
