    Question Alarm going off. Maybe sounder related. (ACT)

    Hi peeps. My alarm has randomly gone off a few times recently for now good reason. I sounder has been beeping 4 times for a while now, but I never got round to replacing the battery. I don't recall it doing 4 beeps recently though.

    Is the alarm going off signifying that the sound is now not holding charge at all? Is it a simple case of replacing the battery (or complete sounder) to cure this?

    Also, I know details on replacement batteries has been posted before, but that battery has been discontinued. Anyone know where I can buy a suitable replacement please?

    Thanks.

    I would change the whole powersounder and be done with it! simply unplugging the old one and plugging the new one in far out ways the hassle of finding the batteries, buying them, disassembling the unit, replacing the batterys, re assembling it etc. the job taking longer etc. Well it does for me anyway.

    think a powersounder is about £40-£50?

    Oh, forgot to say, it is only the sounder going off. When the alarm goes off properly, the horn goes too. This is what makes me think it is a dodgy sounder.

    Lee - that is if you replace the batteries. If you replace the whole sounder you need it reprogrammed.
