House alarm going off for no reason
My house alarm went off in the night. I called a tradesman who ripped the outside box off the wall and left. What do I need to repair it? The box outside smashed all over front garden and still don't know what triggered the alarm to go off. Will I need a new system? I hope not
Could be a battery or charging fault at the panel?

You will most likely need a new battery, this is the main cause for systems causing a false alarm. You will need a new external sounder, they are reasonably priced by many companies. Beware some larger companies may charge you for a callout and also try and tie you into a large service contract. A service contract is a very good way of keeping false alarms such as this down, all 'bells only' systems should be serviced at least once a year, just like your car.
Hope that helps
