I bought a house from a deceased estate in September (chch). Was told the alarm was disabled by the agent, but now after bumping a white telepermit stickered box I have set the alarm off, which is continuing to go off.

Any tech familiar with resetting a SOLUTIONS 880 alarm?

Would be very grateful for the help.

The box would have been the alarm panel which obviously had a temper switch in it.

I'm assuming you don't have a code? Not much you can do without this except cut the wire to the siren to stop the noise.

Most alarms will reset after a few siren cycles.

I rung an installer and got a pin, and it semi-worked. Now if I trigger any of the sensors the console beeps like mad (still quite loud).
During this beeping the alarm disconnects my phones and internet, and all I hear on the line is the sound of the house amplified like there is a microphone somewhere.

Installer advised how to disconnect battery and cut power to the whole system also. Was good for him to talk over the phone, but he wasn't too much help.

My Solutions 880 alarm was registering a fault. I found an online manual for alarm on the following page

I hope this helps

I now have 3 manuals for this alarm! But that looks like the best one by far, thank you for that.

Got help at lunchtime today from a tech at work. Disconnected battery and main power. Ready to be setup if needed in the future.
Thanks all.

If it's any consolation, once you get the alarm monitored and running the way you want it's actually rather good. i set it off when I first moved into our house... pulled the mains and battery power in the end.
