Red face DSC 1500 Question


I have a DSC 1500 security system installed by the previous houseowner. It was fine for the last one year but since the last couple of months I have been seeing the Trouble light and the Memory light on. When I check the cause for the trouble it shows 'Low Battery' as the cause. How do I change battery for this panel? The manual doesn't have any instructions on how to change the battery. I would also like to know how to clear the Memory light.

Thanks in advance.

First of all, this needs to be moved to the Electronic Alarms thread in the Electrical and Electronics area, so hopefully the mods will notice and take care of that. You should look there for lots of help on alarms.

The battery is located in the control panel, a 14x14 or so box probably in a closet somewhere. Simple slide on connectors. Call a local independant alarm company and you should be able to go pick one up for around $20. Radio Shack might have them also, or you can order on line from a security website. PM me if you can't find one.

Arming and disarming clears the memory light on a DSC panel.
