How to Replace your ADT Command Panel Battery

If your ADT Command System has a low battery then you might need a new ADT Command Panel Battery. It is important to have a good working backup panel battery so in the event of a power outage, your system will continue to protect your home or business. You can follow these easy steps to replace it.

ADT Command System Shutdown

First, you want to shut down the power to the panel so it does not beep tamper while you are trying to change the battery. You can do this by going to the tools section>then advanced>then click on system shut down. You can skip this step if you want, but you will want to have your system on test mode on first.

ADT Command Panel Wall Plate Screw

Then unscrew the screw on the bottom of the panel and separate the front of the keypad from the wall plate. If you do not already have a replacement battery you can get one here. Be careful not to lose the small screw you remove in this step and in the next step.

ADT Command Back Labeled

Next, you will unscrew the battery cover screw and remove the backup battery and its connection to the panel. Then you just need to replace it with the new ADT Command Panel Battery and reattach the battery cover and screw. Lastly, reattach the keypad to the back wall plate and screw it back on. Note: if you do not attach it firmly to the wall plate the panel tamper will continue to sound. If it does not automatically power back up then remove the plug from the outlet and plug it back in again.

If you still see a low battery indication it might just need a few hours to charge. Any questions or comments please let us know. Please like our Facebook page and check out our youtube channel for more videos and consider subscribing.

      You will need to unplug the power either from the outlet or from the 2 wires on the back of the keypad. If you do the latter you only need to take one side out and then put it back in. (will require a small screw driver)
