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.

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.

Pete.
