Hi all,

I am hoping you guys can help with my alarm panel.  I've got zero instructions and no way to contact the sparky who originally installed it.  All I've got is:


alarm has been programmed and setup
ready for you to enter your alarm code in. Default is xxx


Here's the panel.  The box says arrowhead alarm products limited

most likely and elite 8 or elite 16 panel, taking a photo of the keypad is not a good indication of what kind of alarm it actually is, get an alarm guy in they usually have the software on their laptops so they can plug in and program the alarm.

I should have been more specific.  At the moment I don't want to modify it (that may come later), I just want to set it and unset it.

I have never had an alarm so don't know much about the UI.

if it is an arrowhead elite series, simply press the arm button to set it, to unset simply type in your alarm code then press enter.

The only drawback is to make sure you know what the code is, because if it's wrong it could be a long night listening to your alarm going off

It's either an Elite or an Elite-S, with 8 or 16 available zones. With a photo of the board I will be able to tell. If you require manuals or assistance, please PM me, have been installing security for over 10 years now and only too happy to help.

Oh, one more thing, when you remove the cover of the panel, it *MAY* set the alarm off, if so, disconnect the battery and pull the fuse, THEN PM me!

parents have the same panel and the arm/disarm buttons do nothing, may be a configuration thing thought

they input the 4 digit code then hit the enter key to set and disarm the alarm

Thanks.  Will wait until tomorrow.  Neighbours would not appreciate alarm testing at this time!

I got a 3 digit code, which in itself sounds suspicious...

Will have to prep the alarm repair 'hammer' just in case.

Just type the 3 digit code and press enter.

If it works, you just need to type the 3 digit code again (you know it works if you hear continuous beeping sound) and press enter to disarm. DO NOT USE THE ARM BUTTON.

If it is an incorrect code, nothing will happen.

Manual for the alarm can be found here:

Some alarms let you enter the 4 digit code to arm as well, so if you forgot the code it won't arm. Handy for me anyway!

Results so far:

3 digit code works, it's programmed as code User 1.  I have managed to add my own code as code 8, I just need to change user 1 to something a little less easy to guess and I can call it done for the moment.

<code><enter> arms the alarm, <code><enter> disarms.

Here is the board (alarm didn't sound when I removed the cover, phew!):

Now that I know it is an Elite S model the manual for programming is slightly different, will try with the new instructions:
