Door/Window Sensor Tampering
Most alarm equipment has a built-in tamper switch to deter unauthorized interference. When the panel reports a tamper trouble condition it usually means the mounting plate and the sensor case are loose or not properly seated. This occurs most frequently after changing sensor batteries.
Troubleshooting Sensor Tampering
- Make sure the sensor is securely seated on the mounting plate.
- If that doesn't seem to be the issue, remove and re-add the sensor.
