Stop That Bleeping Noise! What To Do When Your Alarm Drives You Bonkers

Date: 14 February 2020

Can you hear that? Beep. Beep. BEEP!

It may not be loud but it can feel like torture. Especially when it's constant! Here's what to do when your alarm is driving you bleeping bonkers!

Find it

The first thing to do is figure out where it's coming from. Is it your smoke alarm on the ceiling? A CO2 alarm near your gas boiler? Some of them will flash a small light as well as make that awful noise when they need attention.

A burglar alarm in a house will have a central control panel. This may be in a cupboard somewhere so open every door you have. Check behind and under everything that could be hiding it, such as coats or stacks of boxes.

If you're in a block of flats or a business premises you might find it in a communal area, either in a cupboard or in a box on a wall. You probably walk past it every day without noticing so try and trace the sound or ask someone with fresh eyes to have a look.

Once you've found it you should see a sticker or badge with the name of the installer to contact for assistance. As you can see from the image above, you can't miss ours!

If your panel is showing a fault code or any other information, take a note of it. It might be something that your installer can guide you through over the phone for an instant fix - and instant relief for your ears!

Feed and fix it

Most of the time with smoke or CO2 alarms it's a simple fix. They usually beep when they need a battery replacement. Try and have spares available so you're not tempted to disable it till you get to a shop!

While you're at it, give your smoke alarm a spruce up with the soft brush on your vacuum cleaner. They can suffer from a build up of dust, pollen and even little insects that crawl inside. This can cause false alarms which are just as annoying as beeping - and much louder!

Future-proof it!

If it is your burglar alarm beeping for a new battery there's a way of stopping it ever happening again. Get a maintenance contract!

For less than the cost of a coffee a week you'll get every part of your home security system checked every year (twice a year for monitored security systems). You'll have total peace of mind that your alarm is working properly to protect your home and family. And it's not going to drive you bonkers with beeps!

Blake's maintenance contracts are on a one year rolling basis. We don't lock you in, we give excellent service that makes people want to stay! Even if your alarm was installed by someone else we can probably take over the maintenance - give us a call and find out!
