Reading out and transferring remote control General

When replacing the alarm system control module, it is possible to read out remote controls from the old control module and transfer them to the new control module. In this way, the hand-held transmitters (remote controls and transponders) can be retained. In other words, it is not necessary to change the hand-held transmitter when replacing the alarm system control module.

- Communication can be set up between the PST2 and alarm system control module.

The remote controls and transponder coils are correct and functional.


When the remote control is read out and transferred, only the remote control data are read out and transferred. The transponder coil of the individual keys must be adapted to the control module. Four positions are available for this purpose in menu item Transponder key. This function is described from step 19 onward.
