    House Alarm Niusance


    Since a recent power cut, my not in use house alarm has gone crazy. The alarm kept making chirping noises and then went off making such a noise that I took the plug out at the circuit break in my fuse. But it’s still making noises from the back up battery I think. What do I need to do to make it stop?

    "House and vehicle alarm nuisance A house or vehicle alarm can be a very effective tool in deterring criminals and also making people aware that a crime is taking place. However repeated ‘false’ activation's can become a noise nuisance and disturb people in the local area. Select any card you feel you need to."

    "Hello Pupleen,
    You need to remove the 12 v back up battery by disconnecting the leads from +/- terminals. Thanks Ged."

    "Hi there. If it has a battery, installing a new battery will solve the problem. If not, it should be replaced with a new one."

    "There should be two back up batteries in an alarm system, one in control panel second in external bell. Both would require disconnecting"
