My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

The backup battery will need to be replaced.

Since the system is not in use, your best option would be to have it permanently disabled by disconnecting the main power supply and the backup battery.

Kindly rate my service 5 stars at the top of your question page if my answer worked so I am rewarded for my time; tips appreciated :)
Otherwise please reply back if you need further assistance.
