We bought this house 1 year ago, but did not try to activate or use the NetworX NX-8E/NX-148E security system. Recently, I accidentally armed the system, and now I can't figure out what to do. I've disconnected the power. I got in touch with the previous owner, and they gave me the code, but it does not work.
I have never seen the "Type Code to Disarm" message before, even when the system is in alarm. If I power it up now, the armed light is red, the ready light is green, the fire light is red, and the power light is green. Not sure what to do. I called the installer, and it's $115 to come and reset the alarm code, but I suspect the problems are more than that.
We are a software development company called SoftPerfect. We create software applications for network administrators, business professionals and home users.
NetWorx is one of our software products, created almost 20 years ago and intended for keeping track of Internet traffic usage. During these years, a few companies and organisations around the world started using the word "networx" as their name. There are also several physical products using this name, including the alarm system you are referring to. We have absolutely no connection to any of those companies, organisations or products, and therefore unfortunately cannot assist with any matter related to them. You will need to find the correct website/company/people and address your questions to them.
As our software applications are very popular, search engines like Google tend to place our site at top of their search results. So if you were googling NetworX alarms, you most likely saw a link to our site at the top of the page and ended up writing a message on our forum board. If you become one of our users in the future and have any questions about our NetWorx, we will be glad to help.
