Hi

Hope you can help me, I have bought a cottage that has a Veritas 8C alarm fitted, I looked though the paper left by the people I bought the house from but there is no information on the alarm and also no code to set or unset the alarm.

There are 3 fire alarms at the property and they are also wired into the alarm,

My wife was cooking and the alarm went off, we had no way of turning it off, 30 minutes later it re set

Is there an egineer code or will I have to turn the power off to the alarm and remove the front cover disconnect the internal battery.

Once I re connect the power what will the code be 1234 ??

Not sure what else to do

is there a name or logo or phone number on the external siren cover? chances are the engineering codes are locked to the original installer so thats your first point of call - otherwise a reboot may leave you with the default code but little else

No there is no name or number on the outside box, if I have to reset it can a forum member go through the required steps to reset it and also what is the default code once I have done this

sorry forum rules don`t allow engineering information to be given out, it`s a comman problem and the only real way to advance is with an engineer attending - I`m seeing contracts for house sales that state the alarm must be rebooted and " clean " more and more nowadays.

Any chance someone can e-mail me the procedure then dm.booth@btinternet.com do not see the point in spending 80-00 when I'm sure I could do it

Hello Exibit,
Assuming someone is prepared to break the rules and tell you what to do, what will you do then?
You will have an alarm with no programming/engineering instructions and no idea how to set it up. So it won't work properly and will quite probably go off for reasons you won't understand.
Realistically and sensibly you have 3 choices:
1. Disconnect it and destroy it - but beware an external siren may well go off for an extended period.
2. Pay a professional to properly decommission it.
3. Pay a professional to set it up to meet your needs.

Have you tried contacting the people who sold you the house?
