Reset alarm system to ready

I have the Rokonet Wisdom wireless security system that I installed myself. I just changed the batteries in 2 of the sensors without powering down (mistake) and of course got the tamper alarms. I finally managed to shut the freaking thing up, but now the system won't go into ready condition. I can arm and disarm the system with the remote key fob but can't arm the system from the panel. If I arm the system with the key fob I can disarm at the panel. (phew!) Any ideas?
Thanx!

Ok, sorry! The system finally reset itself after about 45 min. to an hour.
Thanks for looking. Out!

With most wireless systems, there's a bit of lag before the transmitter sends the "I'm good" signal to the alarm control. Generally you can force it by opening and closing the door/window; but sometimes it just takes time (or sometimes an obscure command buried in the back of the user manual)

Thanx! Yeh, I was freaking out! I read online something about needing an anti-code to clear the system code and being as I set the thing up I didn't know anything about any anti-code. :/ So, next time, if I cut all the power to change the batteries, everything should come back up ok, right? So I won't have to put up with all the alarms & phone calls.

Maybe. In this area the Rokonet panels are uncommon, but I know they have some odd protocols in their firmware, but I really can't say for certain.
