Westinghouse Security System beeping

I have an old Westinghouse Security Systems that keeps alarming every 15 minutes or so. The power box is "hot" and there's an internal transformer / finned capacitor looking item that is way hot. Unplugged all is well....Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

    Sounds like you may have a low battery in the main control panel. Is it an "Ademco" brand?

Hi, as you know your system is old. The company that made your system no longer exists. There is no support for your system. No parts available. It sounds like a circuit board problem. Defects in circuit boards are not normally fixed where I work. Not cost effective to pull panel and send it out to be bench tested. shipped back for reinstallation. cheaper to replace panel and keypads. There is a 50/50 chance you may have to replace sensors Too, on that panel. Hope this helps.

Hi,
Hot is ok in an alarm box, especially inside where you see your finned heatsink and capacitors, if it beeps it might be because you have a communication problem, a weak backup battery or else. Check if you have any codes being displayed on your LCD or LED and check in the signification in your user manual if any. If you are connected to an alarm central they should be able to tell you what is the problem by connecting remotelly to your system. If not, well I need more details.!

Thanks,

Alarm beeps every 5 mins. I have changed battery and problem still persists.


Tell me what brand your alarm is and I can help you with the beeping. Usually if you hit # it will silence the beeping for 24 hours. Something you can try is finding your main control box. Its usually located in the garage or in a closet. It is tan and 6 x6. First disconnect the battery inside the control box by jiggling off the black/red leeds. Then unplug the power supply. Wait five minutes. Reconnect the battery and plug in the control box. This is completely powering your system down and then repowering it up-essentially "re booting." If this does not correct the issue, give me the brand and I can further help you.

Turn off daily alarms


Sounds like a trouble alarm. Try this manual page 39. Hopefully this is the type panel you have if not let me know of any writing, model numbers etc that could help me identify the specific panel.

We just moved into a house and it has an alarm system that has westinghouse on it. There are sensors on every door and window down stairs. We have no idea how to turn it on and get it set up.


Call an alarm company like ADT. If they can use it they will. it will require some minor reprogramming and they will check all sensors, if the use it. 1-800-ADT-ASAP.

an easy fix is to get a dsl filter for your system and reconnect it back up to the telephone line.

Westinghouse Security System


Download the manual. I can't remember if it is in the User's Manual or the Programming Manual but a sequence to reset the security code is detailed in one of them. Also, it soulds like the telephone line was wired through the system for full seizure. To defeat this, you will need to take it out of the phone lines at the outside telco box. How it is wired is that the alarm panel intercepts the telephone line first and then feeds the circuit back out to the main junction where the telco comes into the house.
