Exclamation we no longer have a land line - so how do I remove error codes on networx

We recently got rid of our landline phone and the alarm is NO longer centrally monitored, but...we wanted to use the alarm (locally) and we also want to clear the codes & stop the interval beeping (every 5-10 minutes or so?).

We have a networx 1308E keypad (I believe) and:
  • The Service light is on
  • Numbers 4 & 6 are blinking/flashing
  • The alarm beeps about every 5 minutes

How do I reset the codes, remove the beeping, BUT allow the system to be armed when required?

The open zones are unrelated to the phone line issue. What are your zones on zones 4 & 6? For that you need to correct your open zones.

To turn off the dialer:
*8 + [installer code]
0# (system programming)
2# (programming location 2)
0* (turn off dialer by removing the dialer format)
Press [EXIT] until you exit programming

Networx alarm service issues

Hi Ron,

Thank you for responding back. I will get back to you on my success/failure at resolving the dialer issue.

Regarding your reply question - according to the sticker below the keypad...
zone 4 = family room
zone 6 = nook

Follow up questions:
  1. How do I "correct the open zones"?
  2. How did the zones become 'open' in the first place?

Thanks again!

The most common reason for zones to open is from the magnet falling off or getting out of alignment with the matching switch. The second most common is simply that the little switch in the contact wears out (more common on high traffic doors). In that case you identify and replace the contact.

The first thing you do is a simple visual inspection of the opening(s) on the zone.
If the magnet is in place and aligned with the switch, then the next thing to do is try to figure out which contact is the problem if there are more than one switch on the zone.

Remember, these things are just simple magnet actuated switches.
