Remove the Old Battery

Before you can replace the battery of your Ness D8 alarm system, you must first remove the old one. This process is relatively simple and can be completed in a few minutes. Start by turning off the main power switch on the control panel and disconnecting the back-up battery. After that, unscrew the cover plate on the control panel to access the battery compartment. You can then remove the old battery and prepare to install the new one.

Locate the battery compartment

When changing a battery in your Ness D8 Alarm System, the first step is to locate the battery compartment. This can be found on the bottom of the alarm unit and will require a small Phillips head screwdriver to remove two screws that are securing it. After you have removed these screws, pull down gently on the battery compartment cover to reveal the four AAA cells contained within. Unsnaplock each of these cells and carefully pull them out one by one. It is important to take note of how they were positioned in order to ensure that they are placed back in their original positions when re-inserting new batteries.

Disconnect the old battery

Before removing the old battery it is important to ensure that power is shut off to your Ness D8 alarm system. When you have identified the correct switch and shut it off, you can now safely remove the old battery for disposal. To begin, locate and disconnect the battery holder from inside the D8 control panel by loosening the screws. Most systems will have a red and black connector which signify positive (+) and negative (-). Make sure you take note of this when replacing your new battery after disposal of your old one. Unplug these wires from their respective locations on your old battery – remove only one wire at a time to prevent confusion or creating a false connection between connectors. Once all wires are unfastened, you may now remove your old dead battery safely for disposal according to your local recycling guidelines.

Install the New Battery

Changing the battery in your Ness D8 Alarm System is an easy task that takes only a few minutes. Before beginning the process, make sure you turn off the main power switch for the alarm system. Once you have done that, you can follow the steps below to install a new battery.

Connect the new battery

Once the old battery has been removed, installing the new one is relatively simple. Connect the positive (red) cable from the alarm system to the positive terminal on the new battery and then connect the negative (black) cable from the alarm system to the negative (black) terminal. Take care to ensure that all cables are firmly connected and that none of them are touching each other – this could cause a short circuit which can cause serious damage.

Once all of your connections have been made, press and hold down your alarm test button for 3 seconds and wait for confirmation that the battery has been correctly installed – this may be in either an audible or visual form depending on your system settings. Finally, replace your cover plate with its included screws, making sure that it is secured in place with no gaps or loose pieces.

Your new battery should now be properly installed and working correctly!

The negative wire should connect to the negative terminal, while the positive wire goes to the positive terminal-ensure that this correct. The terminals can be identified by their distinct markings, so pay close attention when connecting them for optimal safety.
