Hey guys 

im new here and hoping for a little advice and help, I have a risco agility 3 in my house, all working fine until today. I’ve gone to set it on my way out and it won’t accept my code and spoke to me in German 

 

then it wouldn’t accept the engineer code and locked the keypad. I can’t do ANYTHING the codes don’t work even the default codes or the fobs don’t work ? Any ideas guys, I’m away travelling in 2 weeks and can’t be alarmless

Was there a power cut?

Nine nine nine code didn’t work either lol

 

the backup battery was changed recently as were all the other batteries in keypad, pirs, sensors and bell box. Also just noted that the text on the keypad has reset for the original installer to “security system” 

 

power cut ? I did turn the mains off  during the process ?

DIY job rather than the original installer I guess?


So, I've decided to take my work back underground.... to stop it falling into the wrong hands

the system was installed by an approved Risco installer, the batteries were replaced by myself 

 

there won’t be anyone here to feed the dog

Risco lightsys and prosys are very troublesome panels

You can't be alarmless , then get new alarm , defaulting won't help , as why would you risc it? While your away it starts talking in French to buy a dog

In the city centre there was french bloke ranting mostly to himself on the other side of the street,

 

"English Bastards" or whatever having proper full on melt down in broken English, he's looking at me & ranting 

 

Me being me, & knowing I have claw hammer in my tool bag.....

 

What is ze problem ?

 

He's replies you can not speak my language.... 

 

Of coarse I can speak de French, 

 

We exchange insults in a surreal parody of monty python sketch as he marches off down the street

....

 

This 10-15yrs ago & the panel was Euro 12 with brick keypad & plastic cased endstation.... @Logan the endstation was later ripped & euro one fitted

We do not give out defaulting information here. I can only suggest you get your "approved Risco installer" back.

It would be unusual for a panel to get scrambled like that, even a Risco one. It's possible it may have been damage by a power surge.
