What should I do when the LED indicators on the Battery Siren (HS3BS1x) are not working?

Try one of the following solutions in this order:

  1. Open the rear battery cover and ensure the battery isolation tab has been removed. The LED indicators should flash together once, then start flashing alternately once every 5 seconds.

  2. If Step 1 does not work, check the polarity of the Alkaline batteries. If this works, the LED indicators should flash together once, then start flashing alternately once every 5 seconds.
  3. If Step 2 does not work, you may need to replace the batteries. After replacing the batteries, the LED indicators should flash together once, then start flashing alternately once every 5 seconds.

The Siren should have now been powered up in Service Mode. You will now need to switch the Siren back into Operating Mode.

For Siren-based Alarm Kits:
Exit Service Mode by pressing and holding the ‘Disarm’ button ka_disarm on your remote control for 5 seconds. The Siren will produce 1 long beep followed 1 second later by 2 short beeps. The Siren LEDs will flash together in conjunction with the beeps.

For Keypad-based Alarm Kits:

  1. Enter Test mode by pressing the disarm ka_disarm button on the keypad, followed by swiping a contactless tag or entering your PIN code. The keypad will respond by playing a melody.

  2. Press the number 9 on the keypad. The siren will produce 1 long beep followed by 2 short beeps to confirm that it is now in Operating mode.

  3. Press the disarm button again on the keypad to exit Test mode. The keypad will play a melody once again to confirm.
