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.
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.
