Guide to resetting your Galaxy alarm
If your ADT Honeywell Galaxy system (or any Galaxy alarm system) has been activated for some reason (either a real break-in or false alarm) then there are different scenarios for resetting your alarm – depending on how it’s been programmed.
- Manager reset
- Engineer reset
- Normal user reset
Engineer reset – Galaxy alarm
Commonly (and annoyingly) bigger alarm companies (like ADT / Chubb / Secom) will programme in an ‘engineer reset’ into the system – meaning that an engineer has to visit your site to physically reset your alarm – by putting in their special alarm code. This is a very quick / easy process, but is something that your alarm company will charge you £££ for (annoyingly).
The alternative to calling out your current alarm company we provide a lower cost / nationwide service where we can help reset your alarm – and take it over (re-programming out functions like ‘engineers reset’).
Manager reset – Galaxy alarm
If you have ‘Manager reset’ programmed on your Honeywell Galaxy alarm, then a NOT POSSIBLE TO SET message will appear, followed by ‘Manager Reset Required’ message.
Following alarm activation the system requires to be reset by a manager
In this case you entering a manager level PIN followed by ent; this will reset your Galaxy alarm system following an alarm activation.
User reset – Galaxy alarm
If you see a ‘User reset required’ message on your Galaxy alarm system, then you need to follow these instructions to reset your alarm:
- Enter your 4 digit user code. Press [ENT].
- Scroll through the menu using [A>] or [B<], and then press [ESC]. This will then return you to the home screen.
- From here you should be able to set your alarm as normal.
