Power your system down first. Plug in the battery, the panel should beep, then plug in the AC power. If the panel doesn't beep you might have a bad battery. If the panel powers up after the battery then AC power reset your time and the beeping should stop.
Find the main box that has the alarm control board in it. This panel can have a 12v 4ah battery or a 12 7ah battery. Unplug the old one, plug in the new one. Make sure you put the black to black red to red it doesn't matter what order but if you do it backwards then you'll have to guy buy some small fuses. GIve it about 12-24 hours and it should clear from the keypad.
The Simon 3 supervises the panel battery and when it's bad or the a/c has been out for a long time..will likely have to charge the battery. A problem arises where the keypad unit will not acknowledge that the battery has been recharged/replaced without you doing a basic power cycle. Whenever this panel battery is replaced in a Simon 3 (worn out or depleted from no A/C (power-outage)) you should disconnect the A/C adapter, install the new or recharged battery properly and hear the panel tell you it's ok..."..simon ???? is OK.." and THEN plug in the A/c adapter. Assuming the panel is not damaged..it will talk when a suitable battery is installed with the A/c out. If it doesn't talk..check the battery with a test meter. Voltage over 6 volts(approx) is required to make it talk. Of course, after a total power cycle you will have to set the clock.
Remotes(key fobs) aren't usually supervised (as they are carried away from the site) so it's unlikely it's referring to a key fob low battery. Might you be talking about a remote keypad or device in another part of the house or garage that may have low batteries..finding it and checking the batteries will clear the second part of your beeping.
It's possible the power surge damaged the panel as well. Disconnect the battery and wait for the AC Loss. You'll get a Low Battery on the keypad. Enter your code + off to silence the beeping. If the panel is damaged, it will shut off and back on when you would normally get the AC Loss. Good Luck.
This means that the alarm panel's backup battery is either bad or not connected. These batteries provide power for the system in case of a power outage and are essential for a solid alarm system. Look inside your control panel box ( usually in the master bedroom closet ) and see if the battery connection is just off or if the battery is missing. If it is connected, it is probably too old and needs replacement. Contact your local alarm company and they can swap out your battery or provide one for you.
This means there is a fault on the panel, either something very benign ( like the system clock is not set or a low system battery ) all the way up to a major configuration or communications problem. You can press * + 2 to see the troubles on the panel. If it is the system clock, you can set it from there and be home free. It is probably a good idea to have the local alarm company come by and do an inspection and test, though, as the communications may be down ( last tenant ended the monitoring contract, phone line may be disconnected, etc.) and you probably want to change the user codes.
you need to change your main control battiery.
the main control panel takes a 12 volt 7 amphour or a 12 volt 4.5 amphour battery. the larget the amphour the longer the system will last when the power is out. available at fry's radio shack or on line. ps: if the key shows a zone number with the bat, that means you have a wireless sensor low battiery.
You may need a code to silence it, but you can try pressing the '*' key on the keypad. If it is only beeping when you exit or enter through a protected door, you can remove the magnet (likely drilled down into the top of your door(s)). If it is a low battery, you'll need to power down the system. To do that you will have to access the main control panel, pull either lead from the battery and disconnect the transformer in the house. If you have difficulty locating the transformer, go to your circuit breaker panel and shut down your circuits, one at a time, until your keypad's display is blank--track the circuit to locate the transformer.
I install these panels. For the low battery message to clear you need to power the system down completely. To do this you need to unplug the battery and also unplug the transformer plugged into an electrical outlet. When you power the system back up, you need to first plug in the battery leads. Then the transformer.
