Your CPI Panel: What to Do During A Power Outage

May 11, 2021 By CPI Security

When your home loses power, you will see an “A/C Power Failure Trouble” condition appear on your CPI panel. You will also be alerted through a series of beeps.

In the event this happens, there are simple steps you can take to silence the beeping.

It's also important to note that your panel will run off of the rechargeable backup battery for 24-48 hours during a power outage. Once power is restored, the backup battery should begin to recharge. If it doesn’t recharge in 12-24 hours please contact us at digitalcaresupport@cpisecurity.com.


To learn how to silence the beeps until the power loss restores please find your panel below:
