How To Reset Your Security System In New Haven

A nice benefit of getting your security system hooked up professionally is that you hardly ever find a reason to worry about it. However, there will likely be times when you must reset your alarms in New Haven. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command hub, your system reset usually requires just one or two taps of the touchscreen after common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Read The Owner’s Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you start resetting your New Haven home security system, consult your instruction manual ahead of time. You wouldn’t want to undermine your property’s defense as a result of touching something incorrectly. Also, your system might have changed if you moved from a number pad to a modernized touchscreen interface. If there’s ever a time when you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't be reluctant to reach out to the professionals.

Resetting Your New Haven Security System Due To A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm takes place as a result of a sensor that was tripped by accident. You may use the central hub or bring up the ADT mobile app and touch the shield icon and enter your unique passcode to switch off the system in these situations. You could be contacted by your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that you had a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In New Haven

If power is lost from high winds or other factors, you could start hearing a steady beep from your central command hub. That indicates that your home’s defense is being powered by the battery backup. To reset your equipment and stop the steady beeps, you must disarm/rearm the system.

However, if your power outage lasts for a longer period of time, you could need a complete reset of your home’s security. Heed the instructions in the manual -- usually by submitting your unique passcode and pressing the off button twice -- and you should be back in business. You could continue to notice chirps from the backup power, as it may not stop until the battery charges entirely. Reach out to your security technician if you are still having difficulties with your ADT controls at least 20 hours after power is restored.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

On occasion you need to change a battery in one of the devices in your security installation. When this needs to be done, you should set your system to test mode so you don't trigger an accidental alarm. When the battery is replaced, remove the alarm panel from "Test Mode" and revert back to your usual settings. If the control panel is unable to register the piece of equipment or the battery indicator remains on, you could have to perform a full reset of your security system.

Tips to Reset Your New Haven Security System After Adding Or Deleting A Code

Removing or adding people can be completed on the ADT Command panel and the ADT Control mobile app. You won’t need a reset of your alarm after adding or removing codes. However, if you relocate to a new property that already has an ADT security system, you need to reach out to your residential security experts at (203) 402-8863 to start a new plan. The installation tech will go on site to switch out components, place additional devices (if necessary), and reset the system for you.
