Silent Knight IFP 50 Access Code Reset

Hi everyone:

I have a Silent Knight IFP 50, and I do not have the access code. It is not the factory default 123456. Crazy as it seems, the guy who installed it is in jail, so I am out of luck there. Does anyone know a backdoor to reset the access code?

Hi there and Welcome to the FirePanelForums! Please be sure you have read the rules,

But anyways… You might be trapped, Did you get this off ebay?

No, I am the owner of the building, and had the panel installed new in 2008 - but did not foresee the installer being unavailable due to jail time - I wish I had thought ahead and gotten the code from him, but now my new installer cannot access the module to reprogram a new ansul system that a new tenant has put in to a remodeled commercial kitchen.

Silent Knight technical support was pretty rude to me too…

Silent Knight won’t just give you that information because of the liability that is with it.

I checked with one of the guys at work, he said there’s pretty much no way to reset it. Your best bet is to either replace the panel or build a robot that can brute force hack the panel.

Give a licenced installer a call. See what they can offer. We do not offer back doors to life safety systems on this forum.

No backdoor for the IFP 50. Time to get a new panel.

You best bet is to save what you can by printing out the history log and capturing all the devices by pulling the SLC loop (w/ printer or hyperterminal connected). The installer for the new panel should do this to cut down installation time.
