home alarm system

I have pulled off the ac plug off the wall and the battery from the alarm system to stop the alarm from ringing b/c the battery ran out of juice. I have replaced a new SLA battery but didn't plug the plug into the wall, and the alarm starts ringing again. I wonder if there's something that I can do to fix this problem before calling the alarm company. Any insights would be very helpful. Thanks.

If alarm is on, you have to pull trouble code to see what is causing it. Is the battery fully charged?

Sorry to reply to Tony but I kill file Google Groupers.
To the OP:
You need to apply AC power first then plug in the new backup batt. (I assume you meant the 12V backup batt. in the control panel). The trouble you're getting is AC fail. If the batt. is not fully charged let it charge overnight, just silence the keypad by arming & disarming (most systems). For more help get the exact model of your system and post to alt.security.alarms.

The replacement battery does not come precharged. You need to plug the alarm system into the wall, then attach the battery.

I charged the battery myself before plugging the alarm system to the wall and the standby battery.
