Smartlock Remote Issue...Is it Battery?

Hey Guys..

My Smartlock remote is having a issue where i have to hold down the button for several seconds before the alarm will respond sometimes, othertimes i just tap the button as normal and it works fine...the red light comes on all the time...but could the battery be low on power? Or is it an issue with the remote itself?

Thanks

Colud well be the battery, if you don't know how old it is you may as well put in a new one.
Could also be a bad connection between the battery and terminals, my remote has done that to me, had to give it a whack sometimes to get it to work. Open it up and make sure you have a good connection by removing the batt, bending the terminals in a bit, then putting it back together.
Hope this helps you!
