Ademco Alarm system won't set

Altho the power light is on and it says ''ready'' ''AC'' and ''Battery'' on th monitor, we can't get it to turn on. When we moved into this house 13 years ago we had it repaired and rarely used it. But it just quit working. Is it worth fixing?

Sounds like you need to reset the master code!

Depends on the version of panel you have... 13 years? could be a Vista-10 or 4110...

Either way, use the installing code to reset the master code. This information should be written down in the manual (as is customary upon installing the system for events like this). If the manual is lost, consult the internet for a copy (for your panel type and model) and try the factory default codes that are listed in that manual. If the "ready" light is on, and the keys "beep" when you press them then it should certainly work!

Another option would be to have a security technician come out and check it for you, but that would likely cost around $75 ($50 for first hour labor, and $25 for the trip fee), but you'll get fully informed of all of your options.

If your system is monitored then contact your monitoring company and they should be able to fix it for you for nearly nothing since you won't likely pay them the monthly fee unless you have a working system!

Another option would be to get monitoring for the system and the company will likely update the whole system to todays standards free of charge in exchange for gaining a new customer, but make sure you ask for new motion detectors, the old ones are a common cause of false alarms.


Good Luck!

Honeywell Ademco alarm panel reads Chime BAT 11


The answer above is incorrect. If the back up battery was low it says, "bat" on the screen and that's it. Since the "11" is being displayed, zone #11 on your wireless system as a low battery.

Monotronics alarm key pad beeps repeatedly and read bf check bat. What does this mean


"bf" stands for "Back up failure. Your system communication to the monitoring station is working on phone lines only if it's tied into them. I would call the monitoring station and see if it's still communicating.

Ac/lb light keeps flashing and home alarm beeps every 5 minutes or so and i cant get the light to go off


What model is your alarm system? The maker (Honeywell, Ademco, DSC, Napco, Caddx, ITI, GE, Moose, Morse, etc etc etc) and model number is usually inside the door of the control panel cabinet on a diagram. Numbers printed at the top of the control panel (NOT the keypad) circuit board is also helpful.

Honeywell Ademco alarm panel beeped repeatedly for about a minute and now reads, "Chime BAT." How do I fix this problem?


Find the metal box (usually beige) housing the control panel and open it. The system backup battery is inside. Take it to Battery Warehouse or similar store and buy a new one to replace it.

While you're inside the control box, read the model number of your control panel. That can be useful for future questions.

I disconnected the ademco from the wall to paint. not sure which slots to put the hot wire and ground in from the transformer. have a LYNXR-1 model


The AC power wires for a Lynx (actually, almost any alarm panel) are from a transformer--there is no "hot and ground". It doesn't matter which wire you put to which terminal, as long as you connect them to the AC connections.

Turn the alarm off two times. If it still indicates A/C not ready, press the * key and it will tell you what zone is open or what zone has a low battery.

Our Ademco 6160 PL3 alarm system keypad has an error message


It is located inside a tan colored metal box 12"wide by 15" tall and 4" deep; unless it is flush mounted, then only .5" deep. inside you will most likely find a 12 volt 4 or 5 or 7 amp hour battery. Note; the door may have a lock on it. I have found the key on top of the box, in the lock, and unlocked. The box could be located anywhere but, many times in closets, utility rooms, garages, crawl spaces, etc.

Need to know which pole is positive and which is negative for honeywell transformer for alarm system (120VAC 60 HZ .30 AMPS)


If it is a VISTA or a LYNX then it doesn't matter as the transformer puts out AC current instead of DC. This is done so you can have very long wire runs of very thin wire without causing problems.

Think of your house power, it comes from the high tension lines over many dozens of miles and they power entire city sections (AC-Power). But if you're on DC (when the poles matter) such as in a car, you'll then need a HUGE wire just to run a subwoofer amplifier by itself. Yet power tools can run on a 50' extension cord that's 1/4 the thickness and be fine! the AC power delivery is much more efficient in that respect, and alarm systems usually have wire runs that span the whole house and they're usually all around 18 to 22 guage wire (very thin) to save on installation costs...
