Do not remove the green plastic cover from around the new battery pack. This is covering is necessary for a proper connection and may cause serious injury or damage if removed or damaged.
Set your system to Test Mode. Log into your MyADT account, click on the Alarm System tab, and select System Test.
Unplug the control panel’s transformer from the outlet. You may need the screwdriver to remove the retaining screw on the transformer. Be sure to put the screw in a place where you won’t lose it since you’ll need it later.
Remove the cover screw in the center bottom of the keypad. Be sure to put the screw in a place where you won’t lose it since you’ll need it later. Push in the two tabs on the front of the device using a small screwdriver or other sturdy thin object, and carefully pull the front of the system away from the back to open it.
Quickly inspect the old battery. If the battery looks abnormal (i.e. has a swollen or split case, liquid leaking from the case, or corroded terminals) close the keypad and call (800) ADT-ASAP to schedule a service call.
Locate the battery and unplug it from the board on the system. Use a Phillips screwdriver to unscrew the tab holding the battery in place and remove the old battery.
Slide the new battery into place, plug the cable for new battery into board, and re-secure the battery tab using the screwdriver.
Do not remove the green plastic cover from around the new battery pack. This covering is necessary for a proper connection and may cause serious injury or damage if removed or damaged.
Close the front of the system to its back. When doing this, the top portion of the system (opposite tabs) should be closed first. Securely close the lower portion until the tabs in the front click into place. Replace the cover screw.
Plug the transformer into the wall outlet and secure with the retaining screw.
Check your alarm keypad to ensure it no longer displays the “BAT” or “SYSTEM LO BATTERY” message. If it still shows a low battery message, try entering your code and pressing the OFF button. Repeat if necessary. If the message still shows, it may take 24 to 48-hours for the battery to fully charge. If after 48-hours the message still shows, please go to MyADT.com and start a Chat Session with us, or call (800) ADT-ASAP to troubleshoot your system.
When the message is gone or you’re waiting for the battery to charge, remove your system from Test Mode at MyADT.com.
