  • I am installing my Yale Standard alarm, but I can’t disable the siren tamper. Why is this?

    Your keypad may not be programmed in correctly to the siren.

    1. You must take down the siren to do this (you may find the alarm will go off)
    2. Turn the siren off using the on/off switch inside the siren, leave it off for 1 minute, then turn it back on and it will beep and flash. If this does not work, please remove one battery from the siren and leave it for at least 5 minutes and then place it back in
    3. Once this has happened please press the buttons on every device (please note the siren should beep every time a button is pressed on a device) to learn them back into the siren
    4. To learn the keypad back in press buttons 8 & 9 at the same time
  • Why does the Siren make an interrupted tone when sounding an alarm?

    This is because the Siren has low batteries. Change batteries with new alkaline replacements. 
  • Should the Red light flash on my PIR?

    The Red light will flash on initialisation when the battery tab is removed, otherwise, it should not.
  • My Key Pad will not disarm the system, however it does arm correctly

    Please check that your PIN is not 0000, if it is please follow the steps to change your PIN.
  • Why is the LED flashing on my Key Pad when any key is pressed?

    This is because the batteries are low. Please see instructions on how to change the batteries. 

  • Why does my alarm keep triggering for no reason?

    The siren tamper may not be fully depressed. Please check that the siren tamper switch/spring is depressed to its fullest. Some packing may be required if the siren is mounted on an uneven surface.

  • My PIR is not responding when I arm the system?

    The PIR goes into sleep mode for two minutes. Please vacate the area covered by the PIR for a full 2 minutes before testing.
