Our system battery has never been changed since installation in 1995. The
installers said it would need to be changed periodically but they never
Are these batteries readily available and easy to change out?
Leave a message on what the battery brand and model is and if it is
obsolete, it will probably cross. If you have a Batteries Plus franchise
nearby, just haul it into them. That place is great. You may need to solder
/ desolder the battery so hopefully you are equipped for that. Good luck,

Assuming you are talking about the system back-up battery, you can easily change
it yourself. You'll need a 12 Volt 4AH or 7AH lead-acid available at
Radio-Shack or online. THe only difference in amp-hours is how much standby
time you'll have-- go with the 7AH as the price difference is negligible.
12-Volt/7Ah Lead-Acid Alarm Battery
$29.99 Brand: RadioShack
Catalog #: 23-275
If you have a wireless system (wireless door/window transmitters, PIR's ect..)
these batteries are also changeable by you -- but you'll have to give specifics
about your system for me to tell you which batteries to purchase.
