You're just about to settle down on the sofa or slip under the warm duvet after a long day when it happens...
The burglar alarm is beeping again! Arrrgh!
You're not sure what it's trying to tell you but one thing is certain - you cannot put up with the annoyance, stress and worry any longer.
Find out the 3 most common reasons why your home alarm is beeping and what you can do about it!
There are two main reasons for full blown false alarms.
If a fuse has blown, entering your code will usually settle it. Calling a professional in to double check your alarm system is working correctly is still advised.
On the other hand, if you're experiencing false alarms due to a faulty system, you need a new one. Most likely, you have a poor quality 'out of the box' burglar alarm that hasn't been fitted correctly by an accredited NSI or SSAIB approved installer. Therefore, it is not guaranteed to protect your home and family properly.
"Buy cheap, buy twice" - if you purchased a cheap system or attempted a DIY installation, we suggest contacting Blake's to take a look and offer a quote for a maintenance contract.
Saving a bit of cash on a cheap system seems like a good idea until it all goes wrong. False alarms are only the tip of the iceberg... If your cheap, poor quality alarm fails when your family need it most, your home could fall prey to a ruthless burglar.

2. Intermittent beeps
When there's a mains failure, the alarm may beep quickly about once a minute. Check to see if a message appears on the keypad. Entering your code may resolve the issue, stopping the beep and clearing the display.
Intermittent beeping could also be due to a signal path failure in your wireless system. This means the issue lies somewhere within the telephone line or mobile phone network. To stop the beeping, enter a user code.
A battery fault is indicated by intermittent beeps as well. If the standby battery is low, contact your alarm company. A message may appear on the keypad noting a battery fault. Entering a valid user code into the keypad may disarm the system and stop the beeping.
But remember, once disarmed your system is not protecting your home... so get the experts in sooner rather than later!
