What Do I Do When My Alarm Panel is Beeping and Indicates “Low Battery?”
Alarm systems are equipped with backup power supplies in the form of a rechargeable battery. However, during an extended power outage at the location and to ensure you – and we – are aware of the battery’s status, the backup battery may signal a low charge through an illuminated indicator and/or a trouble beep. The low battery charge status does not affect normal alarm operations until the battery power becomes too low to operate the panel. If power is restored within 12 – 24 hours, the battery should start recharging.
Typically, when we receive a low battery status signal from your system at our national monitoring center, we will call to ensure you are aware, to check if help is needed, and to assist you in silencing the trouble beep.
