How do I know the alarm batteries need replacing?
Some homeowners prefer to change the alarm backup batteries during the routine servicing to ensure they never go flat or fail in an emergency. Others only switch batteries over when the alarm system indicates that they are going flat. Whatever your preference it's important to maintain the backup battery to provide your home with complete security protection.
Different alarm systems have various ways of indicating the battery is failing, some include:
- beeping or chirping at the alarm keypad - often at the same time every day. Some alarm systems carry out an automatic backup battery test at the same time each day.
- trouble or fault light on keypad
- 'low battery' or 'low bat' readout on the keypad display
Refer to your alarm system operation manual for the low battery indicator specific to your model.
Why is there a battery when the alarm is mains powered?
The backup battery ensures your alarm remains armed even if there is a power-out or the electricity is switched off by an intruder.
Most backup alarm batteries last between 3 to 5 years, depending on the conditions. We recommend asking your security specialist to change the battery during the yearly alarm service every three years.
