Customer Question

GE security system keeps beeping with low system battery chimes. Nothing in the keypad. No idea what system battery it's referring to. How do I make this stop?

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the "...GE security system..." particularly the system panel box or control module.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Only things I can find is keypad model number 60-746-01. Where can I find panel or control module?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
See attached. Does that help?
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

The CC-RK0037 appears to be the box holding the control module

Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

And yes; it would likely hold the battery as well. Per described symptom and message, check/replace this battery.

Please try opening it up to gain access to the inside components.

It's a big panel with all the network cables connected to hubs. I need to take out this this whole panel off the wall?
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

The system panel box or control module would often just be about a foot square something like the image shown HERE

I found this connected to this panel...
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Based on these pictures, the system panel box or control module would be further. Trace/follow the round gray cable from the DSL Alarm Filter unit.

It goes up into the wall...this panel starts in basement. I would have to break walls to trace.
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Propose to start searching near the 60-746-01 Alpha-Numeric Touchpad.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have 3 of those keypads in the house. Where do you think the system battery is located? Again the message I get with the chimes is "system low battery"
