There is a yellow light on my keypad and it keeps beeping.


Your keypad will continually "beep", and the yellow triangle will be illuminated, whenever there is a Trouble Condition.


A Trouble Condition is a warning system of something wrong, or a potential vulnerability with your security system.


To Silence:

Press: The Pound/Hashtag Button (on the bottom right of the keypad).


The yellow triangle will start blinking. You will also see a small number displayed on the keypad. This number represents a certain condition, and should not be confused with a "zone number".
