Hi there

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Is anything showing on the control panel?

This may be due to a low backup battery, or some other fault.

If you want to totally disconnect the system, a local electrician should be able to remove the power supply and backup battery quite easily to stop the buzzing and alarm.
