How to disconnect slomins alarm?

We bought a house that came w/ an existing Slomin's alarm system; we don't use it and want to disconnect it. I found the alarm panel and took pictures of the inside (the wiring diagram and the actual alarm components).

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Bill

Disconnect the battery inside the panel. Look around for a 16.5v 40w plug in transformer.
If you can't find the transformer.... pull the wire off of terminal 1 and tape it off.

Actually, I was able to pop the front off. The inside of my panel looks similar to the OP's. Do people typically cut the wires and push them back into the wall, or try to remove everything? Are any of the wires electrical where I would need to worry about a fire, or if the battery is disconnected thats the only power point? Thanks in advance for any help.

You don't want to just connect the keypad. You need to find the power source for the alarm control (the box with the battery and main circuit board).

Unplug that from it's outlet, and disconnect the backup battery.

"Slomins" is just a local dealer name, by the way...
