This series of panels were manufactured in the mid ’80′s until the mid ’90′s. If your home has this keypad the system is more than 12 years old, 2 years older than the recommended lifespan of an alarm system. Below is a link to the user’s manual and basic troubleshooting problems. Unfortunately because of the age the recommended course of action may be to replace the whole system.
To replace your hardwired system it will cost $250.00 and set up of electronic payment.
To replace your wireless system see the new sales options. You will not increase your monitoring rate, you only must set up electronic payment. Notice that wireless alarms have reduced significantly since the first time you purchased your current system.
