    Greetings,

    recently my Ademco Lynx woke me up by beeping in the middle of the
    night to tell me the batteries are running low in my wireless motion
    detector.
    I've had this happen a few times in the wireless smoke detector, and
    it's quite easy to replace the batteries in that one -- it takes two 9-
    volt batteries.
    I opened the cover on the motion detector, and the panel downstairs
    immediatly started making a rapid beeping sound -- I did a <code> +
    off and it silenced it, I assume this is some sort of tamper alarm? So
    basically what I want to know is, when I remove the battery (it's a
    small little 3-volt I believe, had to find it at Radio Shack), is it
    going to mess anything up as far as the motion detector is concerned?
    I recall when it was installed, the installer said something about
    setting up the motion detector so that our cat wouldn't accidently set
    it off, so I'm wondering if these settings are stored in the motion
    detector, and will removing the battery reset it?

    Thanks for any help,
    Chris

    go ahead and replace the battery. nothing will change as a result.
    except for the low battery alert.
     
  3. Go ahead and change both batteries, and put the cover back on the motion
    detector.
    It may then be necessary to enter programming mode <installer code> 8 0
    0 , then * 9 9 to clear the display.

    both batteries?
     
  5. Should be 2 of batteries (CR123A LITHIUM) in the 5891 motion detector.
    Replace both.
