Where the alarm has been tampered with it will need fully decommissioned.

If the internal alarm has been disconnected from mains and battery removed you then need to remove the cover of the external sounder, this will have a backup battery, on removing the 12v battery the sound will stop.

Should you not be able to get to the sounder then if you locate the two wires for the bell in the alarm panel and connect them to the 12v battery within the alarm box this will also stop the sound.

It was a pleasure to assist you today. I hope the above answers the question. If you are happy for the question to be closed there is no need to reply (as this will reopen the question), however do let me know if you have any follow up questions.
