Fooling system that an active land line exist? Brinks BHS-3000C

I have this old Brinks alarm system that I no longer use. Discontinued the monitoring then eventually discontinued the land line service. We all have cell phones now right. Well once the system detected the loss of the phone line voltage, it kindly reminded me every night around 2:00 a.m. that something was wrong 😡 To keep my wife from killing me I unplugged the entire system. I'd like to use the alarm system but I don't plan on paying for a lindline I'll never use. How or can I fool the system that a land line exist? Would a few batteries in the right configuration make the proper voltage?

Welcome to the forums.

It's more than a missing landline..... the alarm is trying to connect with the central station.
If it doesn't communicate and make contact you'll get communications errors.

I don't think that panel is easily programmed. As far as I know.... Brinks is proprietary equipment and you won't be able to change the programming so that the alarm stops trying to communicate.
