Home Security System Repair Questions? Ask a Technician.
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do what I can to provide the right answer to your question.
I think that to get notifications of alarms on your cell phone, you would need to
1. hook the alarm system up to a landline or hardwire phone line
2. configure it to 'notify over phone line'
3. confgure it to 'dial [your cell phone number]' over the landline in case of alarm... instead of, as is usual, an alarm monitoring service number.
Is this what you had in mind, or is something else altogether what you are asking about?
First, you need the admin code (or, passcode, to allow access to admin/setup/programming functions and settings.) It may also be known as the 'programmers code'.
Then you need to locate the number of the previous owner in memory/settings, and change it to your cell #.
Do you have programming access? if not, you may well need to ask the former owner for it.
You will need to find the control box (a box about a foot square) and get the model number off it... NX1300e is the model of the keypad only... Also I want you to try the default install code, it may not have been changed...
Tell me what lights come up as you go through the above sequence. Then come back to me with the response and the control box model and I will walk you through the programming steps to set the dialup numbers..
Excellent, so any luck with the default code?
This is your Installation manual:
Ok you will need o find the control box, a box about a foot square located in the roof or in cupboard near the ceiling...
We need to power down the alarm completely (battery and power) then repower and within ten seconds enter *8 9713.
You may need some help to be able to do this as it can be tricky if the keypad is along way afrom the control box.
Try *8 971300 as well
You have to unplug the battery and unplug the plug pack that powers the alarm, if no plug pack then there might be a transformer in the box.
