Every 12 hours the system begins to beep and then says "Sensor 1 Keychain remote failure". We have to hold down the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously to reset it, but then it only lasts for 12 hours and we have to do it again. It's really annoying, but I don't know what to do to get it to stop.
I dont know if this will work or not but try changing the battery i the remote . we just got our system installed a we have two remotes they installer said they have watch size batteries. hope this helps.

From your description, it seems that the transmitter section of SC-001 is working properly. What you have done to reinstall the system may not be thorough. And it is unclear whether the control panel is not responding to keychain transmitter or sensor or both.
I assume that you have followed the instructions in the manual to clear the zones. Simply unplugging the AC power and removing battery will not clear the zones. Note that sensors can be programmed into zones 1 to 4. Keychain transmitter can be programmed into zone 5 only. There is no LED indication for zone 5.
Secondly, follow the instructions to program the sensor or keychain transmitter to the control panel. The corresponding zone LED will be flashing during programming. There is sound indication as well for successful programming of the device.
If you do not program the sensor or keychain transmitter to the control panel after clearing the zones, the control panel will no longer respond to the device.
The dialer and siren is not cleared on the control panel. They can be cleared only from the dialer or siren itself.
Skylink has two lines of DIY security system, SC-100/SC-1000 and AM-100/ML-100. The remotes for the two systems, such as keychain remote or keypad remote, are interchangeable but the sensors are not 100% compatible. If the wrong sensor is used, it may still be possible to program into the system but it may operate abnormally.
From the description of the symptom, it is likely that wrong sensors are used in the AM-100 system. Check the accessories model number whether it is for SC or AM/ML system. Otherwise, make sure that only accessories from the original factory package are used.
For door/window sensor, the SC model is bulky and consists of one sensor body and two magnet pieces. The AM/ML model has one piece of magnet built into the sensor body. The other sensors are similar in appearance for SC and AM/ML model but the AM/ML sensors have the "AAA+" marking.
1Locate the Mac OS X install disc your computer came with. If
you don't have it, you may be able to get another one from Apple by
calling (800) SOS-APPL. (You will most likely have to buy another one.)
Insert the disc into the optical drive.

"Utilities" or "Installer" menu will appear, depending on which version
of OS X you are running. Select "Reset Password."
Select "Macintosh HD" from the available volumes. On the
drop-down menu, select the name of the original administrator account.
Do not select "System Administrator."

unplug all harnesses going to unit for 5 min plug all harnesses back in and reprogram remote, you do not need to program for voltage sense, that is the factory defalt or call tech support at 1-800-878-8007
to program any new sensors first you must access the installer menu by opening the front cover and using the red buttons typing in the installers code,(4321) is the default code. once that is done press the add button, then the sensor/remote button, then trip sensor(keyfob by pressing both the lock and unlock buttons together until the system beeps) or (removing the smoke detector from the base until it beeps). Once the sensor has been learned it will say keychain remote, press the sensor/remote button repeatedly until it says the correct location, then press done. then enter group code 01 for the keyfob and 26 for the smoke detector. then done.
Sounds like your battery is dead.
