Security System: Pass Code Reset
 
Hi, I don't know if it is ok to ask this kind of things here. If it is way out-of-topic, I apologize.

I bought a house with a Concord Express security system. The previous owner must have set the master pass code to something different from the default. Does anyone know how I can reset it? I know this is a security issue, so it is probably not easy, but who can I contact?

I don't want monitoring. I just want the alarm siren. When I contacted ADT, they didn't help me because they were in the business of monitoring.

I will try to contact the previous owner (how does one contact the previous owner of his house anyway?)

But is there any other way? If you have similar experience, could you help me on this?


Thanks in advance for any suggestion!

Click on Access codes.

Tyler, thanks. But I had the manual. The problem is the previous owner had changed the system master code so it is no longer "1234." Since master code is needed to do any programming, I can't do anything now because I don't have it.

Due to most of these systems use a EPROM, or PROM, you would have to either replace the system control panel, or contact a local alarm company to reset the code if they are able to. The reason that the home owner cannot reset it is, so that a person attempting roberry would not be able to override the code.

I think that is a private labeled panel actually made by GE.. Not unusal.

Installer codes are normally not given to the homeowner for obvious reasons. A local alarm company other than ADT may be able to help you if they are familiar with the system. Would be worth the price of the service call

If not it may be replace the panel time. Most arent that much cost wise.
