Hi there,

Once you have acknowledged the trouble and reset the alarm, it should not go off again.

Let me know if your issue is now resolved.

Kindly rate my service 5 stars at the top of your question page if my answer worked so I am rewarded for my time; tips greatly appreciated :)
Alternatively, please reply back if you need further assistance.

This was not helpful at all. First, I indicated that I had tried the reset button to no avail. Because I do not have any code for this alarm, I could not "acknowledge" the problem - if that's what he means by "acknowledge." I tried several 800 numbers and also read the online manual on this model by flashlight before I tried you. I feel like my $24 was a total waste of money and I won't be using your service again. Besides, when it's 1 a.m. in a TX thunderstorm and the alarm is blasting thru the neighborhood, getting a response like this the next day is a joke.

PS I still have to call someone to figure this out because it's still blinking and the trouble light is still on.

The reset button does not reset the alarm - you can only do this by entering the code.

Let me know if you still need any assistance with this.
