Question about Home Security
How does one "force arm" a GE Networx NX-148E alarm system, rather than individually scroll and bypass all open windows? We often leave our sensored windows upstairs open when we leave the house for short periods. Our old Westec 5000 system had a "Bypass All" function that allowed us to quickly arm the system with whichever windows were open. The Networx system is a pain by comparison, since each open zone needs to be bypassed individually before the system is "Ready" to be armed. The "Force Arm" function sounds like it would resolve this, but there is no instruction on how to do it.

I have yet to test it but I think I've figured it out... I spoke to the place I bought the alarm from and he stated that for both the door/windows & motion to arm, you have to leave the house (or activate an exit door) or the alarm thinks you are still in the house. Since the motion is instant on, this prevents you from accidentally setting off the alarm if you armed it and never left.
So what if you want to arm both and stay inside? There is an option called Unvacted premises (in the Timers menu). It's on by default and makes the alarm behave as described above. Set this option to off and you should be able to set both and not leave the house.

Did you have the old battery still in it for 5 years?If you did,I would almost guarantee that the battery leaked and junked out the system.It may not be obviously noticeable,but a battery left in a unit that long with no use,will always do that.Whenever something battery powered is not going to be used for more than a month,you should take it out.If you can remove the back to examine it,you may find something.If you think you got battery acid on your hand or wherever,baking soda is a neutralizer for acid.It would be worth a look if you can though.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Good luck,Greg

There are a couple of things you can do, you can silence the keypad via a programming change to the alarm panel, but this requires knowing the installer or 'go' code. On the other hand, you can change the tone of the keypad by pressing * 0 and using the arrow keys to adjust the tone up and down.
