Elk M1 chiming wrong zone


Active Member
I've started installing my Elk M1G system piece by piece, zone by zone, a little bit each night. I recently added my third zone so now I have three hardwired door contacts. My system is set to chime/voice announce each zone name and most of the time everything works as I'd expect. However, since I've added the third zone the system will sometimes announce both zones 2 and 3 when only one of those doors is opened.

Any ideas?

Get the latest update version of the M1 from the m1dealer.com site.

When you open a door that double chimes, press the UP arrow key and see what zones are violated. If more than one zone is violated, then check the wiring.
