ADT panel wiring

The control panel to my alarm system was ripped out of the wall and I need to know how to properly re-connect the wiring. The control panel is a (ADT) Safewatch Plus.

Is this the keypad or the actual control?

Make sure you power the system down first. Then:

Red - Red
Black - Black
Yellow - White
Blue - Green

That should work. If the keypad does not respond properly on power up, then swap the Yellow and Blue wires.

Good luck!

Thank you. I tried both configurations, but the keypad is totally dead on power up. Is there some way diagnostic that I can run, or can I look at the control panel wiring for a clue? I appreciate your help.

It's not impossible that one or more of the fuses on the panel went when the wiring was damaged. If you have the means to check voltage, you can see if there is power coming into the panel from the transformer, and if there is 12 volts at the terminals that the red and black power wires for the keypad are connected to.

It was a fuse. All works good. Thank you very much for your help.
