Westinghouse Security System chirping

I have a very old security system - about 10 years old - the panel says westinghouse. I don't have it hooked up with a security company. It is connected to my doors so every time the doors open, it beeps. Yesterday, it started chirping every minute or so. It did this sometime about 2 months ago, and I replaced the battery in the control box (12V rechargeable). Now it's chirping again. I took the battery back to have it checked, but it's perfect. I can't get the chirping to stop! Please help!!

Two fire/smoke sectors occasionally beeping - no battery inside - connected to NetworX 1448E security system. We have changed the large battery in security - still beeping

If the units are more than 5 to 7 years old they have reached the end of life cycle and need to be replace. Smoke detector typically are only good for 5 to 10 years.

Why does my viper alarm suddenly start chirping?

Mine does that too (chirps 8 times), every 4 to 8 hours or so (seems to be random but persistent). The alarm was installed November 2014 and I just started noticing it in May 2015, possibly because I am now within earshot of where my car is parked?

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.

Moved into a house with a Ranger 8980E security system that we have done nothing with for 4 years without a problem - don't have any codes or info. Last night the keypanel in our bedroom started chirping...

that system is obsolete. the battiery is located in the control panel. most control panels are located in a closet next to the att crawel hole or in the att near the crawl hole. find the panel and if you are not going to use it pull the battiery and disconnect the ac transformer. option 2 find a local company and have them up grade your system.

Westinghouse Security System beeping

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.!

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.
