How To Reset Your Home Security System In West Palm Beach

An important advantage of getting your home security hooked up by trained experts is that you rarely find a reason to worry about it. Even so, there will likely be a couple situations where you need to reset your alarms in West Palm Beach. When using the ADT Command hub, your system reset usually needs only one or two taps of the touchscreen when you’ve experienced a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Check Your Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

A word to the wise before you begin to reset your West Palm Beach home security system, check your manual prior to proceeding. You’ll never want to damage your property’s defense as a result of touching something incorrectly. Additionally, the process could be different if you moved from a numerical keypad to a modernized touchscreen interface. And if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't worry as you can always reach out to the professionals.

Resetting Your West Palm Beach Security System Due To A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm occurs due to the accidental tripping of a sensor. You may utilize the central hub or bring up the ADT mobile app and touch the shield option and type in your unique passcode to switch off the system when this occurs. You could get a call from your monitoring professionals, but simply inform them that you had a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In West Palm Beach

If power is lost due to high winds or other factors, you may start hearing a beeping sound from your control panel. This lets you know that the alarm is using the backup battery. To reset your equipment and stop the steady beeps, you need to deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you could need a total system reset. Pay careful attention to the directives in the manual -- typically by putting in your PIN number and hitting the on/off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You might keep hearing chirps from the backup power, as it might not cease until your battery is fully charged. Call your home security agent if you continue to have issues with your ADT equipment 20 hours after your power is back on.

When You Need To Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

Occasionally you need to change a battery within one of your security devices. To do this, you will switch your home’s defense to test mode so you prevent setting off a false alarm. After the battery is replaced, remove the alarm panel from test mode and restore your usual settings. If the control panel fails to recognize the device or the battery light is still on, you could have to perform a total reset of the system.

Reset Your West Palm Beach Security System After Adding Or Deleting A User

Removing or adding personal codes can be completed on your ADT Command hub and the ADT Control mobile app. You won’t need a reset of your alarm when deleting or adding a user or code. However, if you move into a new home that already has an ADT security system, you'll want to reach out to your security specialists at (561) 291-7769 to set up a new contract. The installer will go on site to replace components, set up more alarms or cameras (if needed), and reset the system for you.
