    Hi,

    Just moved into my new house it has a very old alarm installed in 1993 I think it's an Omega 5. It has a keypad and a key.

    I don't know any of the codes.

    3 flashes on the panel when I turn the key the d flashes with plusing beebs.

    I phoned Ageis the company who installed it and they want £70 for registration and will then give me a quote. Don't think it's worth spending the money on such an old Alarm system.

    Anyway I can get this working ?

    'd' flashing means that the panel requires an engineer reset.

    Although this can be sorted you'll need an engineer to do this for you.

    Therefore I would suggest that this panel is put in the bin and a more up to date model is fitted, get a couple of local companies to give you quotes.

    Spend that money towards the new panel.

    No matter what anyone says there is no reason why your old system could not be re-used - BUT if it is as old as the panel ..........

    If you can find out any history of the system, ask your new neighbours, that should give you an inkling.

    Good luck

    It just needs a reset

    Granted the omega 5 is knocking on now but if it works and you can ask them to remove eng reset if its audible only when they are there id say stick with it. It was an advanced panel in its day and ripping it out IMO will serve no purpose, get it reset and reprogrammed by the installer and you will have an approved system too
