Beeping Home Alarm? Here's What To Do!

Date: 1 March 2018

Is your beeping home alarm driving you mad?

In this blog post, we cover why your home alarm could be beeping and how you can stop it!


Check the Manual

The first step is to identify the cause of the beeping, and the easiest way to do this is to check the manual.

A fault or indication guide will identify what's causing the beeping and what you need to do to stop it.

If you don’t have a manual, or if there are multiple causes for the same beeping, then it's a process of elimination.

Reset the Alarm

Occasionally switching off the alarm to allow the system to reset will work. Turn the power supply off at the source and completely power down the system. Then, wait up to a minute to turn it back on.

Low Battery

A common cause of beeping is low batteries. If any component of your system operates on batteries, replace them and then reset the alarm to allow the system to register the new batteries.

The controller often has a backup battery which may need replacing.

Sensor Fault

If all the batteries are okay, there may be a fault with an individual sensor. Since it can be tedious identifying which sensors need attention, you will need to call a professional to fix the system.

Electrical Disconnection

If the electricity supply to the alarm system is interrupted, the alarm will begin to operate on a backup battery, and for this reason, it begins beeping to let you know it is on "battery mode".

Most systems have an electrical plug, which may have been accidentally pulled out or turned off. It is important to check this first.

If the alarm is still plugged in, check the circuit breakers on your electrical box and your internal fuses.

If the issue is still unresolved, look for any visible wiring that appears damaged. This is the stage where a professional needs to be called.

Use an accredited security installer for peace of mind

Trying to diagnose and fix the problem on your own can do more harm than good. You may think you've solved the problem when, in reality, you have a faulty system that is putting your home and family at risk of a burglary.

For guaranteed protection, you should insist on NSI or SSAIB approved installers to safeguard your home with high quality, reliable systems.
