How To Reset Your Security System In Boise

An important advantage of having your security system hooked up professionally is that you rarely need to worry about it. Even so, there could be a few instances where you have to reset your alarms in Boise. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command interface, a reset usually takes one or two button tap after common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Read The Owner’s Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Boise home security system, check your manual first. You wouldn’t want to compromise your system as a result of touching the wrong button. Also, control panels could change if you upgraded from a numbered keypad to a fully digital system. Keep in mind that if you can't reset your system, don't hesitate to call your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Boise Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm happens due to the accidental tripping of a sensor. You may engage the central hub or bring up the ADT mobile app and hit the shield icon and submit your security code to switch off the system when this occurs. You may get a call from your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that it was a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Boise

This signifies that your security is using the battery backup. To reset your unit and silence the constant chirping, you need to disarm/rearm the system.

Keep in mind, if you lose power for a longer period of time, you may need a total reset of your home’s security. Pay careful attention to the directives in the manual -- normally by putting in your code and pressing the off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You may keep hearing chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it may not cease until the battery charges entirely. Call your home security specialists if you keep having problems with your ADT system a day after your power is back on.
