In most cases, it’s because the alarm panel has detected one or more “trouble” conditions. This can be silenced by pressing the # key. THIS DOES NOT FIX THE FAULT. It just stops the keypad beeping While beeping alarm keypads can be very annoying, they’re designed that way for a reason. The alarm beep is intended to get your attention. There is something wrong with your alarm. Be aware that the keypad COULD begin beeping again. The # key doesn’t DISABLE beeping keypads; it only stops beeps for the CURRENT trouble condition. Keypads may begin beeping again if The ORIGINAL cause of the trouble condition momentarily clears itself, then returns, or A DIFFERENT trouble condition occurs. In either case, press the # key again.
