Hi I have an SI compact alarm in the house and for no apparent reason the attack led is lit and nothing is responding on the keypad. Any ideas how to resolve this problem without having to call someone out?


Some large style panic buttons need to be manually returned to the un-pushed-in state with a key. Check whether you have one of these in the house and if so reset it. If you have any other type of panic device, it may need to be reset before resetting the panel.

I'm not sure whether this is the model of your alarm, but if it has inadvertently gone into alarm test mode (the attack led blinks when it is in this mode), pressing reset twice exits test mode and program mode.
