Best bet would be to try and contact the prior owner and ask for it! Should have left such instructions for you as part of the sale/exchange. Just try asking if it's possible to do so.

Within 30 seconds of power up press *and # simultaneously. Display should say 20, if you press *20 1234 then *99 to exit programming. Your system should be disarmed and your install code should now be 1234. You can then use this code to change the master code.

sounds like the system battery may be low. The system batter is usually located , depending on the system, in the main box in a closet. The system battery powers the system in the event of a power outage.

multiple low battery ones in sequence , mean a remote low battery. There is usually only one reporting zone on the remote (panic). That would be why only one zone shows alarm.

If it is wireless, then one or more of the switches need a new battery. I suggest replace them all and mark the date inside the box. I assume that there is no yellow triangle showing on the alarm panel. Triangle is for no phone connection.

It should (If installed correctly) be hard wired to a fused unswitched outlet fairly local to the control panel, if that is the case remove the fuse and then the wire to the control panel.

If not you may find it is wired directly to your fuse box, a wall socket or even a ceiling rose. an electrician will easily be able to trace it's source.
An indication as to where it is wired can be obtained by switching/pulling each fuse/mcb in turn untill the control panel powers down.

There is no battery in the 6150 keypad. If "bat" is on the screen it is telling you that the battery in the main control panel needs to be replaced.

It has been my experience that open ckt on keypad usually means that there is a problem with the wires or the connection to the keypad or control panel. if that is ok then it's the keypad or the control panel. good luck.

Welcome to fixya

I have a solution for this


These alarm systems are best used by setting up each zone first, if you attempt to delete a zone, you risk deleting important configuration information.

No, you entered into program mode 4114800 + 21 (I think, been awhile since I've programmed one of those) and add it as a "sensor" which requires you to press and hold a button which the serial number and/or MAC address of the key fob is written into be allowed to communicate to the controller. Than reboot *99 and you're good from than on.

Check your manual there is a particular zone range for these to be added too.
