The NAPCO Security System has a 12-Volt 4, 5 or 7 amp hour rechargeable back up battery. When the battery voltage drops below normal, a low-battery signal is displayed on the keypad. For GEMINI alarm system panels, an ‘E-02′ will be displayed. For MAGNUM ALERT alarm system panels, a number ‘2’, along with the green, yellow and red lights blinking, will be displayed. At that time, the battery may need to be replaced. Batteries can be ordered and shipped to your home by calling All Island Security at 1-800-695-4484.

To replace the battery, locate the alarm system Control Panel (not the keypad) usually in the basement or in a 1st floor closet. See Figure 1 above.

Replace the new battery making sure to plug the RED WIRE to the RED TERMINAL and the BLACK WIRE to the BLACK TERMINAL. BE CAREFUL NOT TO REVERSE THE POLARITY AS IT MAY DAMAGE THE CONTROL PANEL. See Figure 2 above. Close the panel door and replace the screws.
