    Hi I have a yale Hsa6200
    It’s taking about 30 seconds before the siren goes off
    It used to be immediately when setting them opening the door or walking past the sensor
    I have tried all new batteries and reset it’s still to slow in responding
    Any help would be grateful
    Thanks

    JohnD is the Yale expert to ask.

    if the programming hasn't changed, then the environment or the devices have.

    So have you changed the programming?
    As anything changed recently, new alarms, wireless thermostat low battery, street lamps faulty, just slow response could be a sign of radio jamming, but cant be certain.

    HSA6200 is a keypad-operated one, with the "brains" in the siren box, and no control panel.

    I have used these, but can hardly remember.


    (edit:
    paragraphs removed that do not apply to the HSA6200)


    Are you opening the front door, or triggering one of the other sensors?

    Are you using keyfobs, or just the keypad? IIRC the behaviour is different if you use the fob, in case a ne'erdowell has found or stolen a fob and tries to disarm the alarm before forcing a door or window. But I may be thinking of a different model.

    The HSA6200 does not have a "home set" where you might arm the doors, but still be able to move around inside the house. (paragraph edited)

    Ah, here we are.

    Page 9 of the instructions (2010 edition)

    Arming the system
    Keypad/Keyfob: Press arm
    (The siren will beep and flash once. There will be no audible
    countdown.)

    • Keypad will arm the system with a 20 seconds
    exit period. All detectors will be ignored (except
    for the tamper switches). The system can be
    armed when inside the protected area of your
    premises.

    • Keyfob will arm the system instantly without a
    20 second exit delay. Any detector activated
    afterwards will trigger an instant alarm. The
    system should be armed when outside the
    protected area of your premises.

    Disarming the system
    Keypad: Press disarm followed by your pincode.
    Keyfob: Press disarm.
    (The siren will beep and flash twice.)

    • Keypad: If the system has been armed with a
    keypad there will be a 20 second entry period
    started when the first detector is activated
    (usually a window/door contact on the main
    point of entry). During this entry period all
    detectors will be ignored. The siren will beep
    once when the first detector is triggered.
    • If the system is not disarmed before the entry
    period expires, the alarm will be activated.
    • The system does not have an audible
    countdown during the entry period.
    • Keyfob: If the system has been armed with a
    keyfob there will be no 20 second entry period
    and any detector activation will give an instant
    alarm.
    • The system should be disarmed from outside
    the protected area of your premises.

    I tried this but when I got to no 6
    It does not work the siren does not beep
    Thought it may be the key pad so bought a new one
    Read instructions how to add a new accessory
    Now not sure what to do because the siren isn’t even beeping when adding the new keypad
    Don’t know what else to do
    Many thank

    can you run through what you did to add the new keypad, please.

    does the siren ever react in any way (flash or bleep) to either of the keypads, or to your keyfob.

    did you take the siren off the wall and put it on the table next to you while you did the "Learn?"

    how old are the batteries?

    I followed this
    The siren did not beep or light up
    The keypad was responding by lighting up

    thanks

    did you use the keypad method or the keyfob method?

    And you used the old keypad?

    Does the old keypad work?

    If the old keypad doesn't work, and you want to add a new one, I think you have to start the installation from scratch, loading everything as new.

    IIRC the "quick setup" includes resetting the system to factory status, but I'm not sure. Can you see a separate "system reset" instruction?

    It will be much easier if you take the siren off the wall and have it in the room with you, because you have to change its settings while you work. Put a pillow over the siren to muffle the noise.

    Have you got the instruction book? If not I think I can send you a copy, or a link.

    Hi
    I am going to try again this afternoon
    I’ve been reading the manual and I will start as if it’s the first installation
    When I add the keypad the first time should I use the default pin of 0000 or my existing pin

    thanks
