Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Expert:  p0llinate replied 6 months ago.

That beeping is an indication of a low/bad backup battery, which is a component that needs to be replaced with normal age related use.

Look around in the garage, pantry, or master closet (the most common locations) for a metal control box or enclosure, it may have a key lock on the front. Open that up and inside you'll find a battery which is easily disconnected from quick connect push on plugs, and replace it with a new battery like this:

In the meantime, you can disconnect the main power transformer to the system to keep it quite until you can source a replacement battery.

If you have any other questions, just let me know. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate my service using the stars at the top of the page; hopefully I have earned 5 Stars. I also invite you to contact me directly with any future support needs at and ask for Nathan.
