What is the problem?

The memory chip in the control panel could lose programmed values in the event of a power outage exceeding four hours. If this occurs, the panel could fail to communicate with a central monitoring station and not sound an audible notification in the event of a fire or home intrusion.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The recall involves Apex-Brand Destiny 6100 and 6100AN home security system control panels with XICOR-brand memory chips. Only units with a date code between K015 and K057 are subject to the recall. The date code appears on the product packaging. The date code includes a letter to designate the year (K=2007) followed by three numbers that indicate the day. For example, a product manufactured on the 5th day of January 2007 would have the date code K005 .

These items were sold new+ at Security distributors nationwide from January 2007 through March 2007 for between $280 and $325. Distributors sell the control panels to alarm dealers who directly install them.
