How to fix GardTec alarm faults

Gardtec alarms are now a discontinued series of burglar alarms made by Gardiner Technologies – a UK-based alarm manufacturer based in the North West of England – which was subsequently acquired by the Risco Group

Gardtec alarms were generally a robust and fairly simple make of alarm.  The main alarms being:

  • Gardtec 400 / 500
  • Gardtec 300 series – 350 / 360 / 370
  • Gardtec 500 series – 580 / 581 / 591 / 593
  • Gardtec 800: 800 / 816 / 840 / 872

How to tell which Gardtec alarm you have?

Gardtec alarms are generally recognisable as they have the model number on the front of the main alarm control panel, and also will have ‘GTag’ written on the keypad.  (N.B. GTag refers to a ‘proxy tag’ – meaning that your Gardtec alarm has proxy tags, allowing you to quickly set / unset your alarm).
If you don’t have GTag on your alarm keypad then check out our detailed guide to finding which Gardtec alarm you have here >>
