How can I delete data from the hard drive of 'first alert' camera surveillance DVR?


Surveillance DVRs write over the oldest data when the hard drive needs more space.

You do not need to manage that manually. It is all handled automatically by the operating system of the DVR.

I don't know how to set it and can't find my manual


You posted under First Alert timers.
I believe these timers are another brand packaged under First Alert name.

Yesterday, a fellow posted at fixya and said his First Alert timer was a Woods timer product.
You can see Woods timers and manuals and compare photos and see if your timer is shown. Link has manuals for each timer shown.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

I e-mailed First Alert asking for clarification and support because so many folks are at fixya looking for First Alert timer manuals and instructions.
Searching for First Alert timers, top results give fixya, which promises solutions and manuals.
We fixya folks have lots of information not available elsewhere.
Right now, the web does not show any manuals or instructions for First Alert timers.
First Alert website does not list timers as one of their products.
When I find these manuals, I will add a comment to this post and keep you advised.

I have a First Alert FA260 alarm system and I do not have it monitered by any company. There is a "bat" symbol on the keypad. I located the user manual online, but it only tells me that I need to replace...


In the bottom of the cabinet, you’ll see the backup battery, connected to the main board by a red and a black wire. Normally these wires have connectors that plug onto the battery posts. Take a look at those connections, which should be tight and clean. If you see an accumulation of chalky gray powder around the terminals, you may have to replace the connectors as well. That’ll depend on whether the old connector #after cleaning with an old toothbrush# is in good enough condition to re-use.

The next step is to find the battery specifications. Look at the hookup diagram on the inside of the cover. You’ll usually find the specifications there. If the diagram is missing or does not have the specs, you can get them off the old battery itself. Here’s what you’ll need.

There are three parts to the specification: voltage, capacity, and battery type.

The voltage is the easiest, and most alarm panels use 12 volt batteries.

The capacity will be listed in either ampere hours #abbreviated aH# or milliampere hours #abbreviated maH#.

The battery type refers to the chemical composition of the battery. It’s important to select the correct type because the charging circuit is designed for that type. The common types are Nickle Cadmium #NICAD#, Sealed Lead Acid #SLA#, and Gel Cell #GC).

With this information in hand, you can shop the Internet for a replacement. Perform a Google search for “alarm battery” or “DIY alarms.” You’ll get several vendors, each with a means to drill down to batteries. You’ll find several different brands as well. You don’t have to get the same brand that you had, but the specifications need to match. Voltage and type must be an exact match. The capacity can vary a bit. For example, if you have a 4 aH battery, a 4.5 aH battery will be fine. Just keep in mind that the higher the capacity, the larger the battery’s dimensions will be. While there’s usually plenty of space in the cabinet, getting an 8 aH battery to replace one that’s 4 aH will probable not fit in the cabinet.

Once you get the battery, replacement is as easy as unplugging the old one, and plugging in the new one. It will begin to charge immediately, and any trouble condition should clear within a few minutes.
