- Now you need to find the ceiling sensors in your house. Celling sensors are usually found on the rooftops, where smoke detectors are placed. Unplug the ceiling sensor and remove the battery. The beep sound can be due to the low or weak battery. Replace the batteries with a new pair, or keep the sensors detached.
- If you have more than one sensor placed in your house, repeat the previous steps for all the sensors. If the beep does not go off yet, then the beep sound is not due to the sensors. It can be possibly due to the smoke detectors. Locate all the smoke detectors and replace their batteries with new ones as well.
