    Was adding an expander to my Premier Elite 24 panel yesterday, so I knocked off the power and disconnected the internal battery.

    I half expected the external sounder to trigger, which it didn't. Should it have?

    Cheers guys - it's only been up a couple of years. I won't lie, I hate heights so roped in a mate to help me.

    Will have to check it out at some point

    Have you done a bell test to see if bell sounds.
    Texecom have a piezo issues in the past

    Yeah, everything is functional. Bell and strobe work as expected, the box shows the two flashing LEDs for "normal operation" and I can confirm it goes off if you forget to unset it in the morning!

    So I suspect you're right about the battery - either knackered, or not plumbed in properly.

    There will be a black jumper inside bell box to select sab battery on/off
