Beeping alarm system


My wife and her sister are cleaning out their mother's house after she passed away. She had an alarm system that has been discontinued for several months now. Even though the service has been discontinued it starts beeping every 24 hours until you hit a button. My sister-in-law decided to climb up on a ladder, open the cover on one of the motion detectors, and started cutting wires. Didn't help matters.
I'm looking for suggestions on how to make this thing stop beeping. Thanks.

Re: Beeping alarm system


I don't know that make or model, but we have a house with an out-of-service alarm system that started beeping. It turns out the back-up battery was pooched. See if you can figure out how to call up a diagnostic or fault code (check the manual - if there is one - the distributor/responder service or Internet). We also get the odd beep with an code that the phone line connection has dropped. It's short-lived and I assume a disturbance in the bell line.

You should reconnect the snipped sensor wires. An intact alarm system can be a selling point.

Find the master control box. Remove the power to it, which is often plugged into an outlet. Then remove the battery from the control box. Unless it's the latest unit made, it's probably a worthless eyesore. I work for a flipper company and they always remove the alarm units.

I unplugged the power cord from the master control box and removed the battery. Solved the problem.
Thanks.
