Battery change house alarm
I have a micron Scorpion Z6L alarm fitted which has zone 3 mains flashing I can only take this, to mean that the battery needs renewing its a redlite R1270 is it just a case of getting a new one and just remove and replace.  Or will the alarm go off as soon as the battery is dicconnected?
They have the battery in stock Jaycar.

depends if there is a tamper zone on the lid of the alarm panel.

 

 

 

Disconnecting the battery should not set off the alarm (usually)

I have taken the cover off and there doesn't appear to be any tamperproof!

Most alarms will give a tamper warning alarm if the battery is disconnected, yes.  I would probably switch the mains off first, then yank the battery.  (I've never replaced one myself.)

It shouldn't go off unless there was a lazy installer.

 

Swap it out - the worst that will happen is it will go off and require it to be unset.





Hmmmm

I contacted my installer here's the reply (Get a 12v SLA battery and connect red wire to + and black to - don't need to turn power off.)

 

 

 

So bought battery from Jaycar all good now thanks all!
