Power Loss (system will display an electric plug symbol with a red x over it):

  • Make sure the transformer (little white box that is the power adaptor) is still plugged into the outlet. If the tansformer is still plugged in, check to see if the outlet is working (plug another appliance into the outlet, does it have a reset button on the outlet? Is the circuit breaker still on?)
  • If the power is restored to your system, the red X will disappear and only the white electrical plug symbol will remain in the upper right hand corner of the display. The battery is rechargeable once the power is restored. If the trouble alert does not disappear after a few hours(system will update itself) call customer service at 317-525-8868 or email at

Phone failure (only for customers that have a landline based system):
