Troubleshooting Your Alarm System

There is no way to put a price on one’s safety, or the safety of one’s family. That is why we recommend that homeowners in the area consider the use of a residential alarm system in Newtonville, MA. You shouldn’t be constantly worried about the security of your home being compromised, as that’s no way to live. However, you must also accept that this is not a perfect world, and that threats to home security are a very real possibility. Protecting your home with an alarm system is a great way in which to sleep easier at night. Of course, you may encounter occasional problems.

Code Won’t Work

One of the most common problems that homeowners encounter with their alarm systems is that their codes won’t work when entered. There are a few potential causes of this issue. First of all, stop and ask yourself if someone else may have changed the code without you knowing. A miscommunication may be the cause of the problem. Secondly, it’s possible that your buttons are sticking, perhaps due to excessive wear. If so, you may need a new keypad installed, but you should be able to pry them out enough to at least get into your home first.

Low Battery Indicator

If you are headed out for the day, and you notice a low battery indicator on your panel, and wonder if you need to do replace it immediately. Generally speaking, you should have a bit of leeway before the system becomes inoperable. However, it is always best to replace batteries in your system as soon as possible. Be sure to refer to your user’s manual to ensure that you are using the correct batteries, and to understand which controls are hardwired, which recharge, which have backup batteries, etc.

“No AC” Symbol

When the “no AC” indicator shows up on your alarm panel, you may be wondering how it can tell that you are not running your air conditioner. This is not what the indicator is referencing, though. Instead, this stands for “no alternating current,” meaning that your system has no electrical current supplying it. You may need to reset a circuit breaker, or there could be a problem with your wiring.
