  1. PLACE YOUR SYSTEM ON TEST
    Before changing the battery, ensure the system is disarmed and go to Guardian's Customer Care Website. You may also contact our Customer Service Department at 1-888-895-4805 to have your system placed on test. This ensures Guardian doesn't accidentally notify the authorities.

  2. LOCATE YOUR PANEL BOX
    Locate your all-in-one control panel and use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the locking screw at the top of the panel.

    ACCESS YOUR BATTERY
    While holding the face of the panel with one hand, insert a small regular flathead screwdriver into one of two grooves located on either side of the locking screw and twist it to release the panel from the mounting plate. Repeat this step for the second groove. Once the panel is released from the mounting plate, use the "third hand" strap (white plastic "v" shaped strap) to hang the panel from the plastic knob in the middle of the mounting plate.

    EXAMINE THE BATTERY Examine the battery for any abnormalities (i.e. the battery has a swollen or split case; there is liquid leaking from the case; the terminals are corroded or the battery is hot.) If there are any abnormalities to the battery, please close the panel box and contact a Guardian representative to schedule a service call.

  3. DISCONNECT THE BATTERY
    **NOTE: Your security system may sound or the keypad may beep as an indication that the battery has been removed from the system. You may press the * button to temporarily stop the noise while you change the battery.
    Follow the wires from the battery pack to the white plug, disconnect it from the panel and remove the battery pack from the panel.
    TIP: You may need to use a pair of pliers with electrically insulated handles. You may need to wiggle the connector slightly for it to come loose.
    Remove the old battery from the control panel box.
    Warning: Do not to touch any metal objects to the terminals on the battery or to the open-end of the black and red wire connectors.

  4. CONNECT NEW BATTERY
    Insert the new battery and reconnect the plug into the panel.
    TIP: If the replacement battery does not have a red or black terminal, look at the top of the battery for a terminal next to a (+) positive or (-) Negative sign, respectively.
    CLOSE THE PANEL Swing the face plate back into place until it snaps securely into place, and replace the locking screw.

  5. PLACE YOUR SYSTEM ON TEST
    Test your system to make sure everything is working properly and return to Guardian's Customer Care Website or contact Guardian's Customer Service Department at 1-888-895-4805 to verify the test signals and to remove your system from the Test Mode.
