Frequently Asked Questions on Security Batteries
How to choose the right security battery for your security system?
This is an interesting question and will depend on how extensive your security system is.
Some security systems consist only of an alarm, while others are more complex and have movement sensors and outdoor beams.
Generally speaking, most South African alarm systems can use 12V batteries. These are normally deep cycle batteries that can power your entire system.
Your battery normally kicks in when the power goes off. When there are constant power outages (like there are in South Africa), this can cause your battery’s lifespan to shorten, in which case you’d need to replace it more often.
Battery PowerZone recommends doing periodic checks of your security system’s batteries to ensure that it is still functioning well.
How to change your security system battery?
Many people call in a professional when they need to change their security system’s battery.
However, changing your alarm system’s battery is quite easy and is something that you can definitely do on your own.
Battery PowerZone recommends changing its battery every few years to ensure that it can support you during a power outage.
The first step is to remove the alarm panel cover. Simply unscrew it and then wait for the alarm to go off. When it does, key in your security code.
Now you can locate the battery (it’s normally identifiable by the two red and black terminals). Ensure that the two terminals don’t touch and carefully lift the battery out, taking care not to disturb the other wires on the panel.
Set the old battery aside and insert the new battery. Be sure to connect the red and black terminals safely and securely and then double-check that everything has been connected properly.
Once done, you can replace the cover panel and your alarm system should work much better with its new battery.
How do I know my security system battery needs replacing?
Generally speaking, security system batteries only last a few years, so if yours is a few years old, chances are that it needs replacing.
Other signs that your battery needs to be replaced include your alarm system making a chirping noise and not responding when you activate the alarm system.
With the frequent load shedding that takes place in South Africa, the constant power outages wear out alarm system batteries faster than usual, so it’s a good idea to monitor yours closely.
What must I do with my old alarm battery?
Here at Battery PowerZone, we are passionate about the environment and try to have the lowest possible carbon footprint.
