Before replacing your battery, it's important you know about two essential components of your alarm system.
This is a large plug located in an electrical outlet. It is often secured with a screw
to keep it from falling out. This plug is the main source of power for your alarm
As long as there is power in your home, your system should always have power.
If the transformer stops supplying power, then the system will be kept running by
the system’s backup battery.
The backup battery will keep the system running for a period of time in the event of a power outage.
This time depends on the age of the battery and the number of devices it has to support during the outage.
The backup battery is located either inside the keypad (where the codes are typed
in) or a separate panel box often located in a closet. The location of the battery
depends on the system type.
These backup batteries are rechargeable. Once power is restored, the battery will
recharge on its own.
BEFORE REPLACING, we advise giving the battery 24 hours to fully recharge. If your system is still reporting a panel low battery after 24 hours, at that time we recommend replacement. If you need to order a replacement battery, please text 469-513-8685.
