If it's a Nighthawk it can. The plug on back just needs to be rotated 90 degrees. Refer to your owners manual on how to do this. If you don't have one or have another unit, follow this link and click on customer service. Enter your model number in upper right and click arrow. This will take you to your manual.,8060,pageId%3D794%26siteId%3D384,00.html

How to hard wire the power supply for a 2.4 ghz wireless camera model 49-2535

Warning: not only would this void the manufacturer's warranty but it could also damage or destroy the product; & you should take or use the necessary precautions to avoid electric shock or any other health risks. Since the AC power cord plugs into the back of the camera, hardwiring a power cord would require unit disassembly & replacing the manufacturer's intended power cord connection with the same power cord or one rated with the same specifications at your own risk to cut off the camera plug-in, to separate the wires, & to anchor these wires to the power jack wires of the same polarity. This could require the use of a multimeter & the use of a plastic plug anchor at the border of the hole leading into the back of the unit. The plastic anchor would serve to further secure the cord to the unit & to reduce unintended entry of moisture, dust, debris, & so forth. Take further precautions if you intend to solder the power cable to the associated wires, & secure the wires at the connections, isolating each new connection with electrical tape, Plasti-Coat, or the equivalent.

Unit doesn't turn on by pushing power button

Check the power supply make sure it's connected properly then if plugged to an outlet you know works and it still has no power then I'd say the power supply is bad

AC Power Failure

Providing that you the outlet is putting out proper voltage, check the voltage output of the plug in transformer. Used a voltmeter set to AC and attach the leads under the plug in transformer (where the wire normally go) and plug back into the outlet. The voltmeter should be reading around 9 volts AC. If there is no a low or no reading, you have a bad plug in transformer. It can be replaced with a 9 volt AC 25 volt amp transformer. Battery may also have to be replaced, if it is depleted. If this does not fix the problem, you have a bad panel and it will need to be replaced.

DSC Alarm system

It could be the battery in the main box or the power adapter for that box. First make sure that wall adapter is plugged in and that that outlet has power ( plug something else, like a lamp, in.) If the outlet is good and the adapter was plugged in properly you will need a multimeter to check the battery or adapter or you could just try a new battery.

My tires keep getting slashed!!! my driveway is off of a private lane so,the **** that is doing this is not visible to anyone,any ideas to what kind of servaillance system i can install,i've put up sensor...

I would recommend two solutions. Both are cost effective. First if you want to record the image of the person doing this go out to a sporting good store and buy a "deer camera". Many hunters use these to view wild game near their tree stands. This is a self-contained unit that uses an infrared motion detector to detect a moving object and then records it digitally. You would remove the "data chip" from the camera and then plug it into a computer to view the results. A second solution is to buy a remote wireless driveway alarm. Again the unit has an outdoor motion detector that you mount outside. It then transmits a wireless signal to a receiving unit that you plug into an electrical outlet inside your home. The receiver has a built-in chime that alerts you when someone walks or drives their vehicle up your driveway. One company that makes a driveway alarm is Optex. Both systems can be purchased from $75 to $150. Hope this helps and good luck.

Our keypad for our alarm will not stop beeping. When I hit the status button it says CPU low batt.

Your alarm system has two power sources, a power transformer that is plugged into an electrical outlet and a backup battery that is located within the control panel box. If the battery is over five years old you will need to replace it. Open the box and you you will see the battery with a set of wires attached to it. Pull the wires off of the battery and take it to a local battery warehouse supply store. They will match it up with a new one. Plug the new battery into the system and your system should restore itself back to normal.

GE Simon 3 Installation Transformer vs. GFI...Need Help!!!

I have been installing alarm systems for over 30 years. A GFI circuit's main purpose is to kick the breaker to prevent electrical shock. You will most likely find these in kitchens, bathrooms, outdoors and basements. The reason most alarm manufacturers do not want you plugging into one of these is they are sensitive to humidity and are more suseptical to cutting off electric power to the outlet. Therefore they are less reliable in providing power to your alarm system. Over the years there have been situations where I had no other choice but to plug into a GFI circuit. Doing this will not harm the system but it will increse your chances of losing power to the system.

Dsc sensor not operating properly. I want to change it, is this very difficult? Thank you.

You don't mention what type of sensor. I assume it is a motion detector. Before replacing I would strongly suggest you first remove all power from the system by disconnecting the backup battery inside the control panel then pull the system's power transformer which should be plugged into an electrical outlet nearby. You will know that all power is removed by looking at the keypad - all lights on the display are off. Next remove the motion detector's front cover. Some detectors have a small screw on the bottom so that when removed the cover pops off. Others need to be opened using a flat blade screwdriver and prying off the cover. Once the cover is removed there should be a 4 conductor wire that is wired to a series of terminals. Observe the polarity of the wires, disconnect them and remove wall mounting screws. Install new unit. Be sure when wiring to connect power wires correctly. The 4 conductor wire should have a red (positive) wire and a black (negative) one. Connect the red to the + or pos terminal and the black to the - or neg terminal. Read the instructions that came with the new unit if in doubt. When finished plug the power transfomer back in then reconnect the battery (in this order). If power is connected properly the motion detector's red walk test light (indicating motion) should light whenever you walk in the protected area. Also make sure the system recognizes motion by first closing all protected areas such as windows and doors to get a system ready or green light indication on your keyad, then walk around the protected area. A properly working detector will show you a fault on the keypad everytime the system senses motion.

How do I reset if hardwired to house; no transformer to unplug

It uses a plug-in a.c. transformer that may have a screw helping to secure it to the outlet. Unplug it and the battery - no noise guaranteed.
