hi we've got a veritas house alarm system on the box it says 5va yesterday the box in the house started to sound (not the like the alarm had been tripped but like the power had gone off) checked on line it said to replace the battery - we've done this and checked and changed the inline fuse also - put it all bck togethr and it's still going off in the box can you advice me as to what to do next please. thank you
All your answers appear to be is you either mocking peoples alarms or promoting them, lets think logical for a few seconds, if you wish to say nothing but ' rip it out buy a scantronic' then why dont you send your c.v off to cooper and apply for the role of a salesman, ditto, people are not asking for help buying a new alarm they are asking for help to repair what they have already got in otherwords 'trying to not have to spend hundreds on a minor fix' i fit scantronics alot and they have problems also, you seem to be replying to questions such as ' bell tamper ' witgh idiotic answers like ' rip it out and fit a scantronic' well durr its the bell not the panel, logic pal, logic...
Been in the game for a long time mate,I know my stuff, Veritas is rubbish all the way.
If you are a proper alarm engineer you should know that.
Hi sandy, the veritas you have will be a year 1995-2000 type panel so it should be making a buzzing sound as its one of the first panels made, key in code this should show a tamper fault if the unset light is flashing then check pull out fuse in panel and check fuse board incase fuse has tripped, ignore the unprofessional fool reccomending you have the alarm replaced the panel you have were the best ones they ever made the pre 2002 ones are a load of crap, good luck
it's as if the alarm has gone off but not in the outside sounder box just the internal box
what kind of noise is the panel making ? is it bleeping if so how many bleeps ?
the alarm system was fitted when we moved in and it's rented property but we have to do the up keep to things
I don't use such rubbish only the good stuff. You should try the diy forums or electricians forum where the veritas belongs.
Why not opt for a scantronic 9651 you cannot go wrong with them.
not a very helpful answer but thanks for taking the time to comment
Buy a new alarm such as the scantronic range. Veritas is one of the worst out there cheap and nasty and more trouble than its worth, wouldn't even use one to protect a dog house.
Throw it in the bin, seriously
veritas 5va alarm system?
