I have a DSC PC1832 at my office. I have two partitions and this is the main partition I'm dealing with which has 7 of the 8 zones assigned to it. I just installed a water zone on zone 8. It is an EOL NC zone like the others. When I trigger the water sensor, the siren sounds and partition 1 keypad shows the zone violated. However, it never calls central station. I tried configuring it as a 19 zone (water) and an 11 zone (24 hour burglar). Neither calls central station. I tested a regular alarm zone (front door) by arming the system and tripping it, and it did call central station as expected. I can't figure this out. I see no way to disable/enable central station dialing by zone or for different types of zones violated. I did not try arming the system and tripping the water zone, maybe it will call, not sure. I didn't think to try that until I got back home, however it does not call when tripping the zone when disarmed, even though it sounds the siren. I monitored the phone line, and it never tried to call, it isn't a failed call. I really need this zone to call central station regardless when disarmed. I recently had a flood that happened while people were at the office, but were not in the area of the leak so it ended up doing a lot of damage.
Also, I have the Elk shut off valve which currently shuts the water off using PGM output 2 upon arming of the system. I would like it to still do that, but also turn output 2 on whenever the water zone (zone 8) trips. I don't think it is possible two have an "either/or" condition on this DSC panel. I see where I can have it follow the status of zone 8, or follow the status of arming, but not both. Perhaps there is a trick? I can certainly install a couple of extra relays and use PGM 1 for following zone 8 and continue to use PGM 2 for following armed status. But it would be nicer if I could program an either/or condition for PGM 2.
