I have an old Ademco Lynx (link to manual below) alarm installed in my home that I would like to remove as it is no longer used. It was installed by ADT in 2001 and is hardwired into our home phone line (phone service provided by cable provider). It seems that the system impacts the functionality of the phone service in the rest of the house – when the system goes down, we lose phone service in the house. Before I dive in and just disconnect the wires at the keypad and remove it, I want to make sure I’m not going to lose phone service to the rest of the house. I’m not sure if there’s anything specific I need to do to remove the keypad? Do I need to disconnect the phone connection at the phone box terminal outside the house and then remove the keypad. The power to the keypad is also hardwired in some way – I assume I should also find from where the power is drawn and disconnect that at the source so I don’t have a hot wire running through the house after the keypad is removed? Or is it just better for me to hire a pro to take care of this issue? Thanks for the advice!
