No Master Code - Caddx NX-8

Same story, different day - I just bought a house and my genius real estate agent didn't get the master code for me. I tried using 1234, thinking that would be the factory default, but had no luck. Anyone have any ideas?

The NX series is better in some ways, and worse in others when it comes to the master code problem. The only workaround short of a lucky guess, is to get the unit into "program" mode.

Try *8+9713

If that number is still valid, the service LED will flash, and the function keys will light steady.

If this happens, _immediatly_ press the button marked "EXIT" until it goes back to the power-ready light.

Let us know if that works. If it does, there is a way to get into the master code from the back door. But I need to know if that number worked.

If not, your only hope is finding someone who has the direct connect module that bypasses the coding structure. (Which is the _only_ way to get into a NX that's in alarm).

Another number that you can try, if you know it, is the last 4 digits of the installer's phone number (a commonly used combo).

Otherwise, try the prior owner.
