    Hi there.

    I swapped over my bell box a couple of days ago with an AG6.

    The terminations were slightly different from the old one. The bell is working as it should.

    What I have noticed is happening since I changed it over is sometimes when I open the back door which has a door contact on it, the tamper setting triggers causing the alarm to go off.

    I don't know if this is purely coincidental or something to do with me swapping the box over ?

    i would suspect that there's a poor connection , damaged cable. or damp in or close to the back door contact. when you open the door the vibration could cause the problem. or, are you sure that the zone has not been inadvertently set to chime.

    Ok thanks, I will check for moisture inside the contact.

    The zone used for the back door has always been set to Chime so it chimes when opened. Could this be a reason for it to set the tamper and alarm off if it was set to Chime?

    You could also do a little link across bell tamper and ground bypassing the bell tamper loop and see if it still does it, im not sure what system you have tho.
