I have been reading posts for a while but can't seem to find my answer. Please accept my apology if I have overlooked it, I am a brand new member.
I have had a 2gig system for roughly three years. My setup includes of course, a 2gig control panel, one additional TS1, and a few 345 mhz sensors as well as some zwave sensors. My system has been working fine up until I decide to add a second TS1. So, my provider does not do OTA updates and would not upgrade my main panel without charging me for the install of a new TS1. To make a long story short, I decide to do it myself. The firmware upgrade seemingly went fine. I started at 1.9.6(i think .6) on the CP, and the new TS1 arrived with 1.13...my existing TS1 was also at 1.9. Needless to say, the CP needed to come up to 1.13, and ultimately the existing TS1...which I did...all seems fine to this point. The part where I am curious is now my CP won't pair my new TS1...also, it won't pair my existing TS1...yes, I factory reset and unlearned the old TS1, no help. Upon boot, both TS1 devices simply display the new device/awaiting pair screen...I am wondering if I may have rocked the transceiver chip a little while attaching the firmware cable to the four-pin port, they are in very close proximity. My question is this: is it possible to tell by looking at my transceiver if i have a version that is not compatible with the 1.13 firmware? I know it's 900mhz capable because it was allowing the CP to talk with the older TS1 prior to the 1.13 update. I appreciate any comments and direction. I don't mind digging and testing, just wondering if I am beating a dead horse with this transceiver/firmware pairing I have created. Also wondering how "easy" it is to damage the transceiver should the CP be powered on with the transceiver potentially not seated well.
