One should communicate with the control room and update them with the battery replacement process, as it will prevent the arrival of the patrol team from the company’s control room to investigate the matter.

Step 3

Locate the battery within the control panel, which is majorly found in the alarm system’s control panel.  

Step 4

Gently open the control panel box, either by the key or by unscrewing the panel’s cover.

One should know that the alarm can buzz off as soon as you open the panel. So, punch in the code immediately to disarm the alarm when it is required.

Disconnect the battery and remove the red and black wired from the battery’s terminals with the help of pliers. Initially, the wires may be persistent, but they can soon be unplugged.

Avoid touching the terminals with any metal implements to prevent a shock! After disconnecting the battery replace the old battery with a new one.

Step 6

Before making a final connection between the battery and terminal, make sure you have the same battery model in hand!! Now start the process by removing plastic protectors from the new battery, then connect the terminals with black and red wires.

Just be sure that you have fixed the wires correctly and in the correct terminals.
