As with all technology, home security systems are fantastic when they’re working properly. However, if something goes wrong, it can causes a disruption to your daily routine. The disruption could be a minor annoyance or create real anxiety, depending on the nature and severity of the problem.The good news is most faults are easily fixed and I’ll show you right now how to fix some of the common faults that can occur in 2 of the most popular systems installed in Melbourne homes over the past few years.

You should consider calling us if:

  • you have a faulty burglar alarm that isn’t working
  • you’re having problems operating your security system
  • you’re alarm is going off for no reason
  • you’ve just moved into a property with no codes for the alarm system.
  • your alarm asking for a reset, showing a telephone fail, tamper or low battery
  • you need extra Remote Controls
  • Upgrade Your Alarm System

    A system upgrade allows you to give your system a fresh look and new features

    Generally, there are two different types of upgrades – full or partial.

    Partial Upgrade

    This is where we replace your existing alarm control panel, codepad and back up battery and external siren. We connect all your existing motion sensors, door and window switches etc. to the new control panel.

    This is a good option if:

    your old alarm panel or codepad is old or faulty;
    you want to take advantage of new features that are not available on your current alarm system – adding remote controls, arming your system at night, having your system call your mobile phone if an alarm occurs; and you want a more modern looking codepad.

    Full Upgrade

    A full upgrade is where all your existing motion sensors are removed and replaced with new modern-looking sensors.

  • Common Faults

    Bosch 880

    Fault: codepad beeps every 60 seconds

    Cause: The system is trying to let you know that a fault exists. Follow the steps to determine the cause.

    1 -Press the AWAY button. That will temporarily stop the beeping.

    2 – Press the ‘5’ button til you hear 2 beeps. The display now changes from it’s normal screen to the ‘Fault Anaylsis’ screen.

    3 – Note the number or numbers that are displayed on the codepad. They point to the exact nature of the fault.

    4 – Refer to this table from the User Manual that show you what the numbers mean:
