(Q) My alarm system is rapidly beeping fast…why is this happening?

(A) Has the power company been experiencing interruptions due to inclement weather or power surges? If so, your alarm system has kicked in its back up battery power and now the battery is low. The battery may charge back up, but might take 24 to 48 hours to do so. If BATT is still on the screen after 24 to 48 hours and you have entered your four digit code and the OFF key, the battery needs to be changed. The batteries are not lifelong and need to be replaced every six months to a year. Please call the office for further assistance.
