PG9945—Battery Replacement

When it is time to replace the battery in your door/window sensor, you will see an alert on your system panel, as well as a notification in the Brinks Home™ Mobile App.

The DSC PG9945 door/window sensor requires a 3-volt lithium CR123A battery, which can be purchased at your local hardware, mass retailer, or battery store.

You may also order these online here or at your preferred online retailer.
