Can any one has an idea that Simplex provides (sell) programming software for there 4100U FACP or it is only exclusive for Simplex Distributers???

Simplex does not have distributors. They will sell the software if the customer agrees to sign off on liabilities. This makes the customer completely liable for the system. It's not recommended to do this, but it can be done.

Fire Alarm Sales Rep. for Simplex

As a Simplex Tech. Rep. for many years, I can tell you that the customer should be able to have any other qualified company reprogram their panel, and I stress their panel. The program software should be available to any qualified technician whether they are a Simplex technician or not. I still work on all Simplex panels because my customers can't wait weeks for a Simplex rep. I have over the years watched customers rip out a good Simplex panel 2 or 3 years old because the customer could not get it serviced in a timely fashion because of the proprietary software issue. It was stressed to me many times that we had to tell our customers they had to use a Simplex tech rep. to make program changes to their system. The statement that they should not have it programmed by another company is wrong. Sir, buy the software, get a qualified local technician and get the work done that way.

If you want a tech that is not factory certified programming on your 4100U you're nuts, Simplex panels are very complex. You're dealing with Life Safety.

I've been working for OMBS Security Systems for over 2 years now and, our main jobs are usually on simplex FACU's. My boss recently had all of us take classes in 4100u programming and let me tell you that simplex has certainly made it simple with programming. Yes you can create custom commands that will not work if you write out the equation wrong in the program. But the program itself has an error check feature which test your equations before ever downloading the program that you just created or revised into >the panel.

So simplex panels aren't as complex as you say. So no you don't need a factory certified tech to come and program your panel. What you need is any certified local company can program you 4100u just make sure they know what they are doing.

Can you email me (g-k [at] comcast.net) regarding your comments? I do not want to take this up in this forum for those not interested.

Thank you.

Simplex does have distributors, except for NY they are mainly outside US. They have been trained on the systems and are authorised to program and distribute parts. For more info

Can you get your hands on programming software?


Posted by Anonymous on 15 April, 2007 - 5:42 am
Depends on what version of software and if you have a "key" that goes into the printer port.


Posted by fire guy on 30 January, 2009 - 2:37 pm
Simplex won't sell you their software. I worked for Simplex for 3 years and they make their employees sign waivers when they give you programs keys so that you won't distribute program information. Good Luck with that...

Someone donated a Simplex Life Alarm Fire Alarm System 4001 (the box for on the wall) to our non-profit company to sell to raise money. What is it worth? Do you know anyone we can sell it to?

Have you found any information regarding the 4100 software key, and do you know of anyone who has purchased the software from Simplex?

my 4100u programmer (12.01.06) goes with error "dll could not be found, please install security service" (on win98) as another programmer (11.08) works well on the same OS. could anyone tell me reason? what's that security service?


Posted by Ray Mack on 8 September, 2009 - 5:56 pm
12.01.06 was written for a USB dongle. You can still use the old dongle. However, you need to install the Sentinel Protection Installer first.

Pls help me, how can upgrade the Simplex 4100 Fire alarm systems to Simplex 4100/7023 (Master Redundant controller) or Simplex 4100U? any information about this , let tell me via email address.

Thanks so much,


Posted by Abbas on 20 February, 2010 - 10:14 am
All you have to do is to replace the master controller card and the display board in order to convert 4100 in 4100U

Regards
