    The alarm was professionally fitted 13 years ago and has worked without fault until approx 12 months ago since when at precisely midnight every night the alarm beeps about 10 times. I have replaced the battery and I have replaced what I thought was a faulty keypad but neither have cured the problem.

    I have considered resetting the unit by shorting out the terminals as described in the user guide which seems a bit drastic but the wretched beeping is loud and frequently disturbs my sleep.

    Any guidance appreciated.

    Are you sure it's the alarm that's beeping?

    All

    Thanks for your replies.

    Attached are photos of the keypad and PCB.

    Although I said the noise disturbs me, actually it's my wife, I'm a bit hard of hearing so I haven't heard the noise but my wife and guests have. I did sit up 'til midnight one night but I couldn't hear the sound and my wife did but was too slow to get out of bed to identify where, precisely, the sound was coming from. My wife says the beeping is similar to that when the alarm is set so I assume that's the source.

    I've tried to record the sound using the voice recorder app on my phone but it cuts out after only a few minutes so I've downloaded another voice recorder app and will try that tonight.

    Regards
