Hi , i've just switched the mains power off for the house to carryout some junction box work (which includes the cable for the alarm). After approx 20 mins the alarm siren went off. After i had completed the cable work i switched the power back on at the mains. The alarm siren stopped, but the key pad does not show power on it, the Mains control box does indicate power on the panel and the blue light out side is flashing.
any ideas

firstly you need a new alarm battery. as for the keypad is it totally dead? have you tried pressing any buttons yet? if pressing the buttons doesn`t bring it back to life. what to do is take the mains and battery off the system . wait a few seconds and put the mains back on. then your alarm should burst into life. put the code in to stop the noise. battery back in the main box close the lid, then press reset. should sort the problem. mind to get yourself a new battery for the main panel.
The numbers on the key pad are illuminated, but there is no power light on, i've tried pressing the buttons, nothing happens. I've looked on the screwfix website and they sell, three types of batteries, do you know what is the battery type number is.

your system has locked out! try taking the red led off ya battery and cut the mains! either by the fuse in the panel or fuse spur next to the panel or the fuse at fuse baord. try connecting battery again then main! punch in ya code..... all should be fine now! what system do you have as ill tell you what battery you need! ;)
