How can I still use my alarm system without monitoring?

Hello! I recently cancelled my alarm monitoring service through Brinks. I was hoping to still be able to use the alarm system without monitoring. Of course, Brinks can't tell me how to accomplish this. When I unplugged the phone line from the panel the system started beeping. Brinks said that would happen every 24 hours unless I power down the system completely. Can anyone tell me how to configure the system to be an intrusion alarm only? The Brinks panel model is BHS-3000A. Thanks!

The short answer is that you can't.

Brinks has an extremely locked down system. Without their programmer and code books you can't do anything with their hardware; and they don't cooperate.

Replace the control and keypad's with a non-propriatary system.

Thanks for your response! I'll look into an umonitored system.
