I inherited a EDM Solution 6 Alarm System when I moved into my Villa a year ago. The only document I was left with, was a downloaded copy of the manual. I was also only provided with the entry/exit (stay/away) code.
Just before Christmas, I went to put the alarm into the away mode, The console started to flash the "fault' and I was not able to enter any codes and the system has stayed in 'fault' mode until today, when I obtained a new battery. (SLA 12V, 7.2AH)
The fault light is now off, but If I set the alarm in 'away', the code pad, shows the alarm is in the away mode, but if I wander around the house, the alarm does not go off, which I thought it would. Though If I just press one of the 'zones', for 3 seconds, (example, zone 1, living room) the alarm goes off.
I also note that zone 5, is on (steady). The list on the console says zone 5 is 'int temp', which I'm going to assume is the box, where the battery is). I can't seem to close the box, would that be the reason why the alarm is 'not working'?
I also note the 'disarmed' light is flashing constantly on the the night alarm station in the main bedroom, (where as before it was 'steady', when the alarm was disarmed).
Any suggestions, as what to do. Is there something I've missed?
