Optima XM6 ???

Same old story, moved into my present house and have info on the alarm

Been here now over 2 mths with no problems until it went off last nite, turned off main power and loosend battery, still came on after power restored

I turned off power and ended up undoing the main socket, taping up the wires and restoring power and no sound

Just asking if all will be o.k. (safety wise) till i get someone to have a look at it.

Any ideas on what caused it to go off would be appreciated.

Thank you.

If you unplug the power pack, and remove one of the battery leads, then the system is dead. It's probably set up to restore to the last state on power restoration, so until you gain control of the system, you are stuck.

I think that Optima is the European version of one of the DSC systems. If so, these can be a bit of a headache to reset or default from an alarm state. You may find yourself having to replace the control, depending on how the installer set the thing up.
