remove the fuse from the white box top right of your pic.

the bell/sounder may ring until the battery goes flat.

ADT should be on a contract and they should have decomissioned when you stopped paying.

No …..remove that fuse in the daytime …..open the box and pull one of the battery spade terminals off …..now it may ring for 20 mins ….or not as adt don’t always fit external bell boxes ….( just dummies )
doing what Sunray says may cause it to activate in the night when the battery runs out

So you took over payments?

What was your contract with them?

I rather hoped the noise warning would have been obvious to do this during the day.

EDIT: Second thoughts, I hadn't really folowed this through properly, thanks for completing the advice.
