    Hi, can someone advise me please?

    I am having building work done, and need to disable or remove a PIR for a period.

    I thought I could enter eng mode and remove the pir to a different location but the code doesnt seem to work (no lights flash). I tried to remove the cover but the tamper switch set off the bell, so two questions

    1, can I just enter the alarm set code to silence the alarm while i remove the pir and reinstall ?
    Or
    2 can I just put tape over the sensor to stop it detecting movement whilst renovations are going on?

    at the moment wandering foxes are setting it off during. The night.

    any advice as always appreciated.

    thanks in advance

    That keypad is for a Scantronic 9448
    If a company installed it , the engineering code will not be default code.
    Just tape over the detector or link it out in control panel.
    need picture of control panel wiring and zone number to tell you how to link out detector

    Tnx. It was installed but years ago. Im sure i used the code once to swop out the PIRs.

    ill tape over it for now and likely replace the whole system in the new year.

    cheers
