apologies need to be taking puppy for walk - will check back on return. Question is to how to stop the 2 short beeps. I inherited the system when purchased the house. Normally of sensor is faulty then code or a button press silences the unit. This time beeps persist. Could be the main big power battery, still how to turn off sound?? The aforementioned honeywell system looks identical.

What does it say on the keypad. If you have a keypad that just displays zone numbers then you should have a green light and an "AC" in the upper corner of the screen. Nothing else. the green light on means it is ready to arm and all doors/windows are closed. You're welcome to give a call. I'm in New Jersey. home-***-***-****-Kevin Baum

One more thing-when does it beep. Does it beep when you open a door or window? Could the chime feature be on?

I'll be running out doing errands. Give me a call on my cell if I am not home. cell-***-***-****. I believe it is something simple and we should be able to resolve it over the phone. Thanks,kevin

Neil here, I wasn't online before..

Your problem could be either a chime zone or a unresolved fault... To identify which I will need to know a little more:

1. Is the two beeps regular, if so over what time frame is it repeating

2. If irregular is it related to movement in one particular zone

Once I have this information I can call you and work through what is the problem
