  1. Hello to all,

    I have just bought a property that has an security alarm installed, the
    previous owner died and I purchased the property from the daughter who lives
    5000 miles away and has no idea about the alarm system. I cannot find any
    instruction manual whatsoever or any markings on the controller next to the
    front door.. I have worked out the 4 pin code to arm/disarm the alarm but
    want to edit the settings in programme mode..

    Does anyone know how I can find out this code?

    some where theres a box that is the brains for system which should
    have a label and model number.

    Would you have a make? A model number?
    SOMETHING! .................... to give someone a clue?

    There's more than one alarm panel in the world and I left my crystal
    ball at work.

    Since you appear to be posting from the UK you may want to ask in:
    news://uk.tech.electronic-security

    Of course, you'll need to be specific as to the brand/model of the alarm. You
    have not provided enough information to get assistance.

    I would imagine that the first thing you need to do, is to identify the
    control panel and get some documentation on it.
    Otherwise the code, if you do find it will allow you do no more than a
    little poke & hope programming, not always the best way to figure out how
    your security system works.

  7. Many thanks to all who have responded, unfortunately I can find no markings
    anywhere on the control panel but the wires go to a cupboard by the front
    door where the gas & electric meter are so maybe the 'brains' to the system
    is in there... I will post a picture on Wed when I am back home again.

    Also don't know if it has any relevance but just about every room has what
    appears to be a 'Panic Button' which also has a key... is the key used to
    reset the button if pressed?

    That's probably right but it's not usual to have "holdup" / "panic"
    buttons in a residence in every room unless the previous owner
    suffered from paranoia. Could be they were used for medical alert too,
    but I can't think why they would be key resetable. Maybe previous
    owner suffered from short term memory loss ..... also.

    Hmmmm. But then he wouldn't remember why he was afraid either.

    Need more information.
