We have an alarm fitted to the out buildings with magic eyes fitted to the doors.
Its wired to the mains.
Someone got in when no one was home and removed some tools.
None of the doors look forced and now the alarm only makes a ticking sound and putting in the code to disable it has no affect and it continues to make a ticking sound.
All the magic eyes seem to be in place on the doors.
Does anyone have any idea what could be happening to cause the alarm to stop working properly.
We suspect the intruder did something to it but we dont know what.

Something like a car horn when adjustment screw is turned in or out horn gets louder or quieter.
I thought the speaker box may have neen tampered with however the casing seems undamaged.
We know who did it and what he took.
He is a relation to us but what we dont know is how he got in.
I'll have another look at the casing to the speaker.
I wondered if one of the magic eyes were dissabled would this cause such a problem.
Also the question is why are we unable to put code in and dissable the alarm.
However he did know the code so he may of changed it.
All very complicated as it's my partners daughter ex.
Sorry guys I'm using you as a sounding board as this has got me be fuddleded.
The only things left in the lockup is the all girls horse tack.

You could always try down powering it (Mains and battery) and re power it, failing that I would suggest that it is too late and you now need a new alarm panel.

Without actually seeing what has been (or not been) done all any one can do is guess.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?
