What does “AC Power Failure” mean and how can I troubleshoot it?

If your transformer is in fact plugged in, you may want to check the circuit breaker that governs your control panel’s power.
My LED display is showing “Sensor XX Tamper.” What does that mean?
This means that the cover on your sensor is either open or completely off. You’ll want to make sure the cover is back on the sensor and then trip the sensor. This will clear the the current “Sensor XX Tamper” condition off your LED display.
