How to Stop Your Alarm from Beeping

October 31st, 2022

Did you get a new security system installed recently in Chico and you are still figuring things out? One of the most frustrating things is when the security alarm starts going off or beeping and you are unsure of how to get it to stop. 

When there is that constant beeping noise, especially in the middle of the night, it can make it hard to think and it can be incredibly frustrating after a long day of work as well.

To start dealing with this headache-inducing problem, you need to find out why your security alarm is beeping and what you can do to make sure it is working as it should.

You want to avoid having any false alarms that can cause even more stress and worry too. 

Locate the Source

First, you need to locate the source of the beeping. You need to make sure it actually is coming from the security system, and it is not coming from another alarm or system you have installed in the home like a smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector.

Once you know for sure that the incessant beeping is coming from your home security system, you can then begin to take the steps to disarm it.

Call the Security Company

The best thing you can do is call the security company and see if there have been any issues detected in the home that would cause the alarm to begin beeping. It is still a possibility that there may be an intruder or another problem that needs to be addressed. You want to rule this ou right away.

You can then ask them to check all of the sensors in the home to make sure that your home really is safe so you can attempt to disarm the alarm.

Check the Battery

Once you learn that everything is fine after calling the security company, the next thing to do is check the battery. The beeping could be caused by a low battery. The beeping is simply notifying you that it is time to change out the battery. If you change out the batteries of your alarm system and your smoke detectors, the low battery warning and beeping should cease.

Disarm the Alarm

If changing out your batteries didn't end the beeping, then you need to enter your security code to disarm the system. Take your time and make sure to enter the code incorrectly. Do you still hear the beeping?

Call a Technician

If you have patiently walked through all the above steps and still find your alarm system beeping, it is time to call in a technician in Chico to check things out. They can analyze everything to determine what the problem is and then walk you through how to resolve it. 

For your alarm system to be 100 percent effective, it needs to be fully functional and operational. If you are experiencing any of these problems and have that incessant beeping at random intervals, contact the experts at your local security company in Chico, CA to resolve the problem. 

What Our Customers Say

"I had the Alibi system installed several years ago. It has functioned flawlessly. The image quality is exellent both night and day and in all weather conditions. I particularly like the replay (which can be set at various speeds) and zoom functions of the system. Tech support from Crimefreeliving has been excellent. I have received quick responses to questions, and timely home visits — as when I changed IP carriers and my Alibi system needed to be reset. I have recommended Crimefreeliving to several friends."


"As a small business owner here in Chico we definitely saw the need for video surveillance. After expressing our needs and concerns Tim did an excellent job getting us set up with the set up with the appropriate equipment. He really took the time to address our concerns in a very friendly, professional and knowledgeable manner. I highly recommend Tim for all of your business and residential video surveillance needs."

Ron H., Owner/Auto Doctor

"I have to say I love having my security cameras at my home. Tim Truby did a wonderful job of installing the five cameras. He is very neat and cleaned everything up after the installation. He explained to me how to operate the monitor, my phone and IPad. However, I have had to call Tim because I'm not tech savvy and forget what he has told me. He usually just helps me over the phone and then all is well. I'm 80 years old and enjoy the comfort of knowing I have these security cameras."


"Tim Truby designed and installed a 32 camera system for us here at the Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District. We had received several other quotes from security system vendors, but Tim’s quote was the least expensive. Tim also installed the system quickly and has always been available when we needed him. We are very happy with our security camera system and we can highly recommend Tim Truby for all of your surveillance system needs."

D. Weseman, Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District

Crime Free Living updated our old video system with a new 16 Channel HD Alibi Video Security System. The old system had been added onto by different installers which resulted in a cabling mess. There were cables that worked and cables that went nowhere. It was a mess. Tim sorted it all out and installed cameras that are very clear. He also installed a monitor for our cashiers to watch hidden areas, a monitor to watch the entry door, and a monitor that allows employees to watch the outside parking and gas pump area. All work was done on time and very professional! Will always recommend Tim and Crime Free Living.

S. AM PM Chico Arco Station

"I had Tim install an Alibi Video Security System at my residence and a couple business locations. The remote view option is invaluable to absentee owners or anyone who travels a lot. The clarity and quality of the cameras have allowed for viewing employee theft. The evidence provided from the HD video cameras was fantastic! Tim was professional and provided extra value from his law enforcement background."

J. Folsom Arco Station

"Tim, I want to thank you again for doing such a fantastic job on installing a wireless IP security camera system at our dream home. The extra time that you took to hide wires, and install a clean, professional system is much appreciated. I still can’t believe the clarity, quality, and ease of use of this new system. I wished that I would have met you before our original inferior system was installed by another company. Now, whether I am at home, or monitoring the system from around the world, I know that my home and family are safe and sound."

John M.

"In April of 2017, my husband and I made a phone call to Crime Free Living that turned out to be a smart and wise decision. Amazingly, in just a few hours, Tim installed four Dome Security Cameras, weatherproof enclosures, and hooked up into our home a 23" Full HD Widescreen Security Monitor. Even more than his professional expertise was the time spent with us in making sure that this system was working correctly and properly installed on our phones so that anywhere in our travels we can monitor our new home in Magalia."

Tieka and Don S.

"I have been using Crime Free Living for the last couple years ar work and at home and I really recommend this product. Tim is a very good service provider. If he can't figure it out, he's got good tech support with the system that he offers."

Gary D.

"I have known Tim for over 10 years. To date, Time with Crime Free Living has installed two separate surveillance systems for my company. With each system, Tim has listened to my needs and custom dsigned surveillance systems for my specific needs and within my budget. The equipment used is always state of the art, the workmanship is top notch, and Tim is the example of trustworthy. I would recommend him for any job."
