How to fix Veritas alarm tamper fault
Every piece of equipment on your alarm system (e.g. all sensors, keypads, sirens, alarm panel) has an internal 24/7 tamper circuit. If a sensor cover is loosened, removed or broken or if wiring is damaged, the system will report a tamper condition on the keypad even if your alarm is not set (i.e. if you have a Veritas 8 or R8 a tamper light in red).
The idea of a tamper circuit is to ensure that there’s no way for your system to be compromised / tampered with, preventing it working in an emergency situation. There are a myriad of ways your alarm may go into tamper; for example if your carpenter laying a new carpet accidentally cuts an alarm wire, or a decorator painting around detectors accidentally damages it, or if a cheeky mouse takes a bite out of your alarm wire.
Old detectors may also cause tamper problems. Most old detectors are fitted with micro switches, or metal springs. As plastic covers age,or metal springs lose their strength, this will cause tamper problem.
In the case of a tamper fault, the first thing to do is to check all sensors have their cases properly secured and check if you can see any alarm cables have been compromised / nicked.
