Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. How often does it beep?

Okay thank you for confirming.This is most likely a battery issue.In the main panel there is a backup battery, which eventually fails and needs to be replaced.Locate the big metal panel (like a fuse box) for the alarm system, usually located in the pantry or master bedroom closet, and open it.Sitting in the bottom you'll see a battery with 2 leads on it, they are quick disconnect plugs that just pull off. Purchase a replacement battery: that, and the system will stop beeping. Best regards,Nathan --Please note:I am an independent technician and I've spent my personal time, unpaid, in an effort to assist with the question for which you solicited my services. This site works on the honor system, and to that end, I have prioritized working with you ahead of other paying customers.Although you’ve already paid your fee to the site, I am only compensated for my efforts when customers such as yourself leave positive feedback for my work. I apologize this is not the outcome you had hoped for, though this is really beyond either of our control. I do hope you’ll consider leaving a 5 star rating for me, rather than “shoot the messenger”, so that I may get credit for my time spent in good faith to answer your question accurately. Rating 1 or 2, or not rating at all, does not produce a refund, it only penalizes me for trying to help.
