How To Reset Your Home Security System In Youngstown

A nice benefit of having your security system installed by trained experts is that you hardly ever need to worry about it. Even so, there may be a couple situations when you have to reset your alarms in Youngstown. If you use the ADT Command panel, your system reset usually needs only a few minor tap of a button after occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Read The Owner’s Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

A word to the wise before you begin to reset your Youngstown home security system, consult your owner’s manual ahead of time. You’ll never want to damage your home’s protection due to pressing the wrong button. Additionally, the process may have changed if you switched from a numbered keypad to a fully digital system. Keep in mind that if you can't reset your system, don't worry as you can always contact the professionals.

Resetting Your Youngstown Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm occurs because of an accidentally tripped sensor. You may use the ADT Command touchscreen or open your ADT security app and hit the shield icon and submit your credentials to turn off the system for these instances. You might be contacted by your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that it was a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Youngstown

If the power goes out because of high winds or other factors, you could start to hear a steady beep from your control panel. This lets you know that your home’s defense is being powered by the backup battery. To reset the alarm and halt the beeping, you need to take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

Keep in mind, if your power outage lasts for prolonged time frame, you might need a full reset of your system. Heed the instructions in your user’s handbook -- normally by putting in your unique passcode and tapping the off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You may still hear the auxiliary power beeping, as it’s possible it won’t end until your battery is fully charged. Reach out to your security technician if you keep having issues with your ADT system 20 hours after power is restored.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

Occasionally you will have to replace a battery powering one of your security devices. To do this, you want to set your home’s defense to "Test Mode" so you prevent setting off an alarm by accident. After the battery is replaced, move the system from test mode and revert back to normal operations. If the control panel is unable to notice the device or the battery indicator remains on, you may require a full reset of your security system.

Resetting Your Youngstown Security System After Adding Or Deleting Someone

Removing or adding users can be accomplished on the ADT Command panel and your ADT smartphone app. You won’t require a reset of your alarm following the addition or deletion of users. However, if you relocate to a new house that already has an ADT system, you need to reach out to your residential security experts at (330) 355-9086 to establish a new service. The installation tech will go on site to switch out outdated parts, set up additional devices (if necessary), and reset the system for you.
