Problem with Safe Alarm

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi. We have recently taken over a Manor home and in one of the rooms is where the guns are stored. However every time we open the gun safe to get it fitted out for our equipment the alarm keeps going off even though we though the alarm is not set it's becoming a pain now!!! Could anyone please advise me what I am doing wrong? I will try and insert some pictures.

You need a key for the zone omit unit above.

Once you have it omit the zone (it will buzz) open the safe, close the safe and un-omit the zone.

I've found the key and turned it on the box above the gun safe but when I open the gun safe door it still goes off and when we silence it at the keypad in the office it displays Gun Safe Door. Surely there must be a way around it I need to store the guns in the safe cheers

Surely there must be a way around it as its apart of the police licence to ensure all guns are kept in a secure lockable safe cheers

Does the omit unit buzz when you turn the key?

You may need a code for it also/or

No it. Doesn't make any noisy which ever way I turn the key the alarm still goes off. The only noise it makes is if you press any of the numbers!!!

Call me crazy...

 

Did you get in touch with the installer / maintainer of the security system & ask them to train you on how to use the alarm correctly ?

 

Maybe when they undertake the maintenance visit, update the kekoholder ect...

It was already installed when we took over the building we have all the keys to the safes and the alarm unit above the gun safe and we also have some key fobs for the keypads by the front door and office and landing.

To be fair if he is storing guns its probably a Police requirement that the system is monitored and maintained. We look after quite a few sites with gun safes I cant think of one that's not G5 monitored.

The installer will still know the system and can provide a service contract

I doubt that, people that have guns are sensible, and would not take any risk. You can kill someone with a gun.

Also his insurance would be invalid and he could lose his gun license if the guns are not suitably protected

Alarm isn't a must for guns I thought?

Depends on the requirements set out when the license was issued

I'm going to contact the original installer as I want to keep the monitoring which I think is something called redcare as there is a little telephone thing that says BT Redcare. I just don't understand why it keeps going off when I open the safe doors when the rest of the alarm in the building is off. It's confusing!

Somebody spent £100's to put the 24hr circuits on the gun cabinet, 

 

The little thing marked redcare is probably just a block terminal...

 

The alarm is always working... there's set & unset but no off ;)
