How to Stop the Beeping On Your Security System Panel

Business Security | Home Security | Security Products

“Trouble” beeping on your security panel can happen for different reasons, and the appropriate steps will vary based on your specific panel and what is causing the beeping.

Log in to Customer Care for More Personalized Info

For a customized experience and more detailed information, we recommend logging into your personal Customer Care account. Here you can easily find the name of your panel as well as your system’s recent event history. To view event history, find “System Info” in the left-hand column and choose “Events.” This log of recent activity may indicate what prompted the trouble signal.

You will also find extensive resources on the Customer Care site, including manuals and answers to common troubleshooting questions (choose “Resources” under System Info).

Quick Steps

Below are a few quick steps you can take to silence beeping caused by a trouble signal (low battery, tampers, etc.). Please note these are a temporary fix to stop the beeping and may not permanently address the underlying issue. You can always call us at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328) to ensure the issue is resolved and your system is working properly.
