How Do I Clear A Tamper Error On My Honeywell System?
To clear a tamper on a Honeywell alarm system, the cause of the tamper should be corrected first. If this is a cover tamper on a wireless alarm system, replace or reseat the system cover so that it properly holds down the tamper switch.
Usually, a tamper on a wireless sensor is due to the cover not being placed back on correctly, or in some cases, if the sensor has a back tamper, it may not be mounted correctly, or may be missing its back plate.
Once the reason for the tamper is found and corrected, whether it was a panel tamper, or a sensor tamper, disarm the system twice to clear the tamper display. With Vista panels, this means entering your 4 digit code + Off  twice. With Lynx or Lyric alarm panel, go to Security > Disarm > Enter Code. Do this twice. You can also press the Home Key once or twice, until you're provided with a number pad, then enter your valid 4 digit code.
