First of all go to your security box.Now you will have to find where all the sensors conect to the panell.These area's on the board are called zones such as zone 1 zone 2 and so forth.Chech and make sure no wires have came loose from the screw termanils also make sure their is no corrision (good contacts are key).If this doesent work you will need a magnet find out which zone you are having trouble with such as front door back door window ect.Now their are two different sensers one is a flush mounted senser this will look like a little box on the frame of what ever it is securing.The other one will be a inset one this will be harder to find.It will be inside the frame of what ever it is securing.In any case you wil need to run the magnet over this device and see if the panel will reset.If this hapens then you know that their is something wrong with the orig. magnet.(When you shut the door or window the orig. magnet will align with the senser).Some times the distance between the senser and the magnet will effect the senser.If the senser is a flush mounted senser then their will be some wires you can acess to see if they are making contact.

((((( I DO NOT RECOMENT THIS ONE. IF YOU TRY THIS ONE YOU WILL NOT BE PROTECTING THIS ZONE AND SOMEONE CAN NOW BREAK IN )))))The next thing to try is to simply look on the panel door and read where it says which resistor it needs and where it goes on the panel in relationship to the correct zone buy the resistor and install it in the panel.

((((( I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS ONE. IF YOU TRY THIS ONE YOU WILL NOT BE PROTECTING THIS ZONE AND SOMEONE CAN NOW BREAK IN)))))The next thing to try is the zone bypass.The instructions on how to do this should be on the back of the key pad door.

The next thing to try is to look in the senser to see if it has a battery.Some sensers have a battery and they need to be replaced from time to time.Now I have been asuming that this is a senser on a door or a window but their are other sensors that are optional on this panel as well.Check all wires on these batterys and make sure all outer housings are securly on the sensors.

If none of this works then you probably either have something wrong with the wireing or the panel its self is faulty.If so contact a security technician.

Door ajar alarm is on constantly when dash lights dimmer is on. Turn to off and alarm stops


Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that's good with automotive electrical problems . Checking for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes would be a good first step . The GEM - generic electronic module is fords BCM - body control module . There is a door ajar switch located in each door , when a door is open the GEM module detects this an turns on the alarm (chime ,bing or what ever noise yours makes ) Also turns on the little car symbol showing a particular door as being open . You could have a GEM module problem , Or you could go to www.bbbind.com/ Find wiring diagrams an try to trouble shoot this yourself. Go on youtube an watch videos on basic electrical trouble shooting , how to read a wiring diagram . Plus check out some repair videos door ajar switch problems !

Is this a Laptop problem or a home security question? If home security, is the door a wired or wireless zone? A Chime on the door, is that on the control panel or a local chime at the door?
Are you absolutely sure zone 5 is that door? Is your bypass zone activated? You should be able to hold arm to arm it anyway.

Trouble alarm every 12 hours


Here is a link to instructions to access web based control of alarm unit.

Hopefully you can log into it and find where to set time server, or at least set time/date.

Just moved into new house. Plugged in DSC PC1832 to power outlet. Keypad beeps every 3-5 seconds and yield sign is lit. How do i keep it from beeping, and only beep when doors open?


This means there is a fault on the panel, either something very benign ( like the system clock is not set or a low system battery ) all the way up to a major configuration or communications problem. You can press * + 2 to see the troubles on the panel. If it is the system clock, you can set it from there and be home free. It is probably a good idea to have the local alarm company come by and do an inspection and test, though, as the communications may be down ( last tenant ended the monitoring contract, phone line may be disconnected, etc.) and you probably want to change the user codes.

Have ADT 3000 series alarm system - would like to set it to max


adt sw3000 panel does not support max button on key pad. best solution would be to have ADT tech reprogram Zones so windows are perimeter zones(instant when armed away or stay) and motions interior follower (instant when no perimeter zone was triggered first). doors stay exit/entry.

Beeping at random times through the day


You are getting trouble beeps, every time you press status you delay the alarms for 4 hours then they begin again and beep every minute. You need to run a sensor test to find out which sensor has a problem. Open the panel, enter your code and press the test button, it will begin scrolling through the sensors. Activate each sensor until it stops, if one doesnt work it will keep asking you to activaate it. You probably have a dead battery in a sensor.
