Today, the power in my village went out. This caused the back-up battery powered alarm to go off. Nobody in the house even knew our alarm worked, let alone how to make it stop. It's been going off for over an hour now. FML
Open the cover/lid. Disconnect the battery.
If the outside strobe has a separate battery you might need a ladder to do the same outside.
Then get an alarm technician to reset the PIN so you can start using it again.
