Tips on fixing your Pyronix alarm

Although alarm systems are fairly simple, when errors occur it can be quite complex fixing them if you’re not trained / don’t know what you’re doing. For example, if you do try to fix your alarm yourself you need to be aware that

– Once you open the alarm panel without the engineers code (which you won’t have and will in general be specific to the alarm engineer who installed your system) then the alarm will ‘go off’ (i.e. make a loud racket!)

– Opening the alarm panel lid, you’ll see inside your alarm is a hornet’s nest of wires – amongst which is an alarm battery

– One of the most common alarm problems are to do with battery faults – with alarm batteries lasting 4 to 5 years on average, and older alarm batteries causing problems to the alarm beyond power failure problems when there’s a power cut.  It’s important to understand though that replacing your alarm battery can be tricky – as the battery will be surrounded by the mess of alarm cables, and there’s a risk of either you dislodging a wire (causing a fault) or getting an electric shock (fro the 240V power).
