Security & Fire Protection Systems/PC1555RKZ RANGER AMERICAN


Is there any way to reset this unit without knowing the master code.  I recently bought a house with it and the previous owner was the 2nd owner and never used it and didn't know the code. The plug in the closet was unplugged.  When I plugged it in the ready light,system light came on and it is beeping.  I would like to use it, but can't seem to figure it out.  Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

The default master code for the PC-1555 is 1 2 3 4.  If that doesn't work, try * 8 1 5 5 5.  If that doesn't work, press the "#" sign and try * 8 5 5 5 5.  If that still doesn't work, press the "#" key again and call me at 1-888-340-3473 (toll free in North America).  If the keypad beeps three times after either of the * 8 attempts, press the "#" sign and call me.  I'll then be able to take you through resetting the master code to something you'd like to use.
