Low battery and Loss of Power: After 3 years the typical backup battery in a system will be very low or completely flat. In this case we will replace the battery and also give the system a full service. System devices contain batteries that have to be replaced. The codepad gives you a trouble status when the battery levels are low and in some cases a low battery can trigger false alarms. Loss of mains power can also be the cause this. The battery supplies back-up power to the alarm system during loss of mains and should always be in good condition
Faulty Control Panels: Old security devices can cause many false alarms and should be replaced or upgraded if needed. There is always the possibility of a faulty keypad, control panel or movement sensor causing a false alarm.
Regular Maintenance: You should conduct regular maintenance to ensure that devices and other home security equipment are cleaned, and working the way it should. Objects, dust, water leakage, spider webs, and movement sensor fittings can be reasons for false alarms.
Doors and windows sensors: If a door or window is in poor condition, it can easily be moved by the wind and trigger an alarm. Doors that are locked with a deadbolt are more sturdy and can help false alarms.
Proper installation: When a burglar alarm system is fitted, it is important that all sensors and devices are correctly installed according to Australian Standards and manufacturer's recommendations. If you're installing a do-it-yourself unit, you must be careful so you can minimize false alarms.
Heaters and coolers, pets, rats, and insects: Some movement detectors can be triggered by heaters and coolers left operating when the device is activated. Some motion detectors can be triggered by pets, rats, or insects. If you own a pet, be certain your system use "pet-friendly" sensors; otherwise, pets movement around the house will trigger false alarms.
User error: You may simply forget to disarm your device. Easy to forget when you are in a hurry. Please don`t forget when with trusted relatives and friends who disarms your security system, they understand how to operate this correctly or this may cause false alarms later on. (example: Let them know how to disarm the unit if it goes off for any reason). Also please read your user manual properly as there will be some handy info for false alarms.

Battery Fail A battery fail fault occurs when the system detects a low backup battery. The system automatically performs a Battery Test every 4 hours and every time the system is armed. The date and time occur every time there is a total loss in power. This type of fault does not cause the FAULT indicator to display on the codepad unless your installer has programmed the automatic arming time.

Telephone Line Fail A telephone line failure fault happens when the system detects the telephone line is disconnected from the control panel. Your installer needs to program the system for this feature to operate. E2 Fault An E2 failure fault registers when the system detects an internal program error.

If you move into a new home with an existing security system please have it serviced straight away otherwise your codepad might start beeping. This fault is very common and can be caused by a low battery condition. This will be indicated by a light 1 in fault diagnosis mode. An alarm keypad beep can also occur due to the new NBN network regarding the disconnection of the old obsolete copper telephone network. In this case your burglar alarm won`t stop beeping. Planned or unplanned power outages may cause the system to start beeping constantly. Fuse faults caused by a blown fuse may also start a beeping codepad every minute. A telco fail, comms fault or cut telephone line will set a beeping noise at the control panel and will trigger a keypad fault indicator.
