How To Reset Your Security System In Salt Lake City

One perk of having your security system installed by professionals is that you hardly ever find a reason to concern yourself with it. However, there may be a few instances when you have to reset your alarms in Salt Lake City. If you use the ADT Command hub, your system reset typically needs only a couple tap of a button when you’ve experienced common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Consult Your Instruction Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

One note of caution before you start resetting your Salt Lake City home security system, check your instruction manual prior to proceeding. You don't want to damage your property’s defense due to pressing something incorrectly. Also, the process might be different if you switched from a numerical keypad to a modernized touchscreen interface. Keep in mind that if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't hesitate to call the experts.

Resetting Your Salt Lake City Security System Due To A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm takes place due to an accidentally tripped sensor. You may utilize the ADT Command touchscreen or open your ADT smartphone app and tap the shield image and submit your security code to turn off the alarms for these instances. You could be contacted by your security monitoring team, but just tell them you experienced a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Salt Lake City

If power is lost due to a storm or other event, you may start to hear a repeated, high-pitched beep from your control panel. That indicates that your home’s defense is using the battery backup. To reset your unit and stop the constant chirping, you need to take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

But please note, if you lose power for a longer period of time, you could need a total system reset. Follow the directives in the manual -- usually by entering your code and tapping the on/off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You could continue to notice the auxiliary power beeping, as it might not end until your battery reaches a full charge. Contact your home security specialists if you are still having issues with your ADT system a day after the power is resumed.

Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

On occasion you will have to switch out a battery powering one of your home security components. To do this, you want to set your home’s defense to Test Mode so you prevent setting off a false alarm. When the new battery is put in place, remove the alarm panel out of "Test Mode" and revert back to normal operations. If the system doesn't notice the piece of equipment or the battery light remains on, you may have to perform a total reset of the system.

Tips to Reset Your Salt Lake City Security System When Adding Or Removing Someone

Adding and deleting users can be completed on the ADT Command panel and your ADT smartphone app. You should never need a system reset when deleting or adding codes. However, if you find yourself moving to a new house already equipped with an ADT alarm system, you'll want to call your residential security experts at (801) 895-2509 to start a new contract. The installer will visit your property to replace outdated parts, place other components (if necessary), and perform a full reset.
