Arrow Replacement Battery

I am going to change my security system battery( sealed lead acid) battery.
The original battery is a 12 v 4.5 ah, I can't find one locally, However I saw a 12 v 5 ah battery. can I use a 12v- 5 ah for a 12v-4.5 ah battery?

Yes. The 5ah battery has pretty much replaced the 4.5 in nearly all applications. Most panels can charge 7 to 9ah batteries without a problem, some even larger.
