    Read the manual, most of them have an option to disable the beep.

    I turned the beeper off on the one in my kitchen and by my night stand. Check the manual.

    The beep is to ensure you it's working. If you're in an urgent need to retrieve your firearm you want to know that it's working and reading your input whether it's a keypad or a biometric one.

    Indeed. Mine has a mute setting, and I used it for a but, but then realized that I had no feedback at all whether my input was being received, and I was occasionally failing to open it. Beeps are back on now.

    No, mine too. Don't want to have to be watching lights and finger placements at the same time. Didn't work for me. YMMV.
