Hi, new on here and reading through there is some fantastic info.
Im having problems with my C&K Securitech System (Sentinel CA67 Panel) after a power cut. Its all powered up fine and both the panel and remote panel seem to working fine (beeps and lights) although its not accepting codes and the internal siren is constantly running. If you leave it for 10 mins it stops but starts again as soon as any PIR or door is triggered. If I power down the system from the fuse box the external siren sounds. Power it up again and the external siren stops leaving just the internal one going.
Reading around on here, I suspect its battery problems as its not been serviced since 1999 according to the records.
I want to change the battery in the panel and the bellbox, as that would sound a sensible start. A few questions:
1. Is the bellbox (a chubb branded one) easy to get into (any special tools) and change the battery? Ive read the threads about the loud siren and strobe voltage so will be careful there not to fall off the ladder!!!!
2. I guess the tamper will be tripped when I open either the panel or bellbox? Although removing the bellbox battery should stop it sounding?
3. Is replacing the batteries as simple as opening the boxes, putting in new ones and closing again? Using then either the factory code or my own if still in memory?
Any help much appreciated. I want to try this before paying Chubb the silly money to open a contract so I can get maintenance. If not any Chubb engineers in the Stansted Airport area?
