Alarm Battery Replacement
If your alarm display is reading ‘low battery’, ‘panel battery fault’ or the display is gone dead, then it will need a new alarm battery. Another sign of a faulty alarm battery is a sudden activation of the system during a power cut with a dead keypad which doesn’t accept the code.
