Takeover bridge

Takeover bridge

No one can figure out why we keep showing unknown takeover bridge error on touchscreen and it beeps randomly. Just had installation on Saturday. It's awful!
Accepted Solution

Re: Takeover bridge

Thanks.

In this case, ours was caused by the installation contractor's error when installing the takeover equipment. He should have replaced our old vendor's wireless door sensor and wireless card in the control panel with XFinity equipment. He didn't, so the old wireless setup was causing our takeover equipment to throw an "unknown error". Once an in-house Xfinity technician came out, he diagnosed and corrected the problem right away. No issues since then.

 

BTW, for anyone considering an Xfinity Home installation, *ALWAYS* insist that an in-house Xfinity tech come out. The subcontractors that Xfinity/Comcast use are worthless IMHO. Whether it's been cable, internet, or home, I've never had a good experience with the subs. This last sub actually had to FaceTime with his boss the entire time he was at my house to talk him through the conversion, and they still got it wrong. Thanks goodness for the in-house Xfinity tech!

I was told that if you had a previous alarm company, and it does a random test (Like picking up the line, etc), it can trigger that error.

No need for any further action from Comcast. As I mentioned in my previous post, the Comcast employee who visited my house was able to fix the problem. Thanks.

Re: Takeover bridge

I am having the same takeover bridge error problems as the other posters.  I get the error every few minutes, we have had three  sub-contractor technicians out to fix it.  The last sub contractor just left and said he could not fix the problem.  I need an in house Xfinity service technician to come out and fix this problem ASAP.  This has been unbelievably frustrating.

HI Customer9903,

 

Sorry for the delay. Has this issue with your security system been resolved?
