What happens to my RF500 System in the event of a power failure?

In the event of a mains power failure, the RF500 System Gateway will continue to work as normal for the following durations:

  • RF500LITE – No Backup Battery
  • RF500 – Up to 4 hours
  • RF500A – up to 1 Hour

However, your network might not be operational.

If an alarm goes off and you have an Autodialler, then so long as the battery back-up is working this too will continue to work and try to send phone messages, subject to the phone line being operational.

Backbone Transmitters will also continue to work. Battery life of a Backbone Unit on just battery power is up to 4 days in total.

Our Annual Service plan for RF500 systems will check and replace your batteries and make sure your system is in full working order. For more information, please contact us.
