the neighbour’s house is empty and on the market, and for the last few days the alarm has been going off constantly (not literally for a solid 3 days, but 5 hours or so at a time)
ive previously tried calling the letting agent, who responded with soothing but vague comments like ‘we’ll look into it”. and today its already been going off for 2 hours!!!
theres a van in the driveway, so it seems that someone is inside working on the house (same van as other times so doesnt seem to be a burglar)
i cant take it any more!!!!!! even our double glazing isnt shutting the noise out

Do you know who the alarm company is? (Maybe there’s a sticker in the window?) You could try calling them and asking why it keeps going off, no one responding, and no one turning it off?

Call the police and file a noise complaint. It works. Trust me!

Call the police, they can issue a ticket to the alarm company and the homeowner for a faulty alarm causing a police call.

eugh i just spoke to the worker in the house, apparently the alarm has water damage so its internally fried. the code to turn it off no longer works…theyve called an engineer who should *hopefully* arrive today to kill it
its not a constant noise…its like a siren going off for a few seconds, then silent for a few seconds. and im finding myself waiting for it to start again

How annoying! Can’t they unplug it though? Our house alarm stops when you unplug the master box in the basement, even if it is armed and blaring.
