ENGINEER RESET
REQUIRED 21055
When Meridian has been reset
after an alarm a random 5-digit
code may be displayed, along
with the message "RESET
REQUIRED".
Normally it is then necessary for
an engineer, from your installing
company, to check the installation
and reset the system for further
use.
But if you have caused the
alarm in error your Alarm
Receiving Centre may permit you
to reset the system without an
engineer present.
You will be required to quote
this 5-digit code by telephone
(advise them that the system is a
Castle ‘EURO-MERIDIAN' ). You
will then be given a special code
which will reset the system for
that one occasion only.
