Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your home security system?

Read PDF of the owners manual online. Tried to reset master code. But it wants the one that is current and I don't have it so it just beeps at me

Neither code worked
Electronics Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 7 months ago

Ok, then it has been changed by the installer. If you contact a local installer they should have an idea of who installed it and find out the code for you.

This is not a new system. It is probably at least five or ten years old. I am the fifth owner of a twenty year old home, I have no way to track down who installed it in a city of 800,000 people. Any other suggestions?
Electronics Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 7 months ago

I would start with the installer that is closest to the home; if it is not that installer then they may know which installer worked on that particular home.

If it isn't possible to track down the installer in this way then the only other option is to deactivate the system and replace it.
