Home alarms systems can give you some piece of mind and protect your house while you are away or asleep. Optima XM6 house alarms can have up to six alarm zones so that you can use the alarm on doors as well as windows. Once you set the alarm, you need one of the two codes to turn the alarm off. If you want to change your code, just follow a few simple steps to do so.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the “PROG” button to start the code changing process. All of the indicator lights will turn on.

  2. 2

    Enter your four-digit code. The tamper indicator will stay on, and the others will turn off.

  3. 3

    Press the “8” button. The first four zone indicators will turn on.

  4. 4

    Enter your new four-digit code. The tamper indicator will turn on and you will hear a series of rapid blips.

  5. 5

    Press the “Reset” button to exit the code change process.

Tips and warnings

  • To change the second code instead of the master code, use “7” instead of “8” and then enter the new second code.
