“Trouble” beeping on your security panel can happen for different reasons, and the appropriate steps will vary based on your specific panel and what is causing the beeping.
For a customized experience and more detailed information, we recommend logging into your online Guardian account. Here you can easily find the name of your panel as well as your system’s recent event history.
To view event history, find “System Info” in the left-hand column and choose “Events.” This log of recent activity may indicate what prompted the trouble signal.
To access your equipment manual in your Guardian account, choose “Resources” under System Info.
Below are a few quick steps you can take to silence beeping caused by a trouble signal (low battery, tampers, etc.). Please note these steps provide a temporary fix to stop the beeping, and may not permanently address the underlying issue. If the problem persists, the panel may begin beeping again.
