How to stop your alarm from keeping you awake at night
An alarm beeps to inform you that something has happened. In most cases it is NOT an emergency.
The MOST COMMON CAUSE of an alarm beeping is a momentary loss of communication with the Monitoring Station.
This occurs when your PERIODIC TEST (the daily signal that the alarm sends to ensure that the lines of communication are open) fails. This Periodic Test is usually set for the early hours of the morning. Phone service can be interrupted during the night for maintenance or due to storm damage.
Another cause of alarm beeping is because you have had a power cut.
To STOP your alarm from beeping:
If you have a Bosch or Solution alarm...
PRESS # (AWAY)
If you have a DSC alarm...
If you have a Paradox alarm...
For other alarm manufacturers or models, see your manual or ring our office on 04 570 1070
NOTE: Stopping the beeping only silences the alarm to give you some peace. It does not rectify the problem. In most cases the issue will rectify itself in time, but sometimes there might be a real fault, such as a failing battery or sensor.
