How To Reset Your Tallahassee Home System

A nice benefit of getting your home security set up by professionals is that you seldom need to worry about it. With that being said, there may be a couple situations when you have to reset your alarms in Tallahassee. If you’re utilizing a smart command panel, your system reset normally takes a few minor taps of the touchscreen when you’ve experienced a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Read The Instruction Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

A word to the wise before you start resetting your Tallahassee home security system, read your manual ahead of time. You’ll never want to undermine your system due to pressing something incorrectly. Additionally, your system may be different if you upgraded from a number pad to a digital command hub. If there’s ever a time when you can't reset your system, don't be reluctant to call your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Tallahassee Home Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm happens because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can utilize the control panel or access your ADT smartphone app and tap the shield icon and enter your security code to switch off the alarms in these situations. You may get a call from your monitoring professionals, but just tell them you experienced a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Tallahassee

If power is lost due to a storm or other event, you may start to hear a repeated, high-pitched beep from your central command hub. That indicates that the alarm is running off the backup battery. To reset your unit and halt the steady beeps, you must disarm/rearm the system.

But please note, if you lose power for a longer period of time, you could need a complete reset of your system. Pay careful attention to the instructions in your user’s handbook -- normally by submitting your PIN number and tapping the designated button twice -- and you should be back to normal. You may keep hearing the auxiliary power beeping, as it may not end until the battery charges entirely. Reach out to your home security agent if you are still having difficulties with your ADT system at least 20 hours after the power is resumed.

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

There will be infrequent times when you will have to switch out a battery within one of your home security components. To do this, you want to set your alarm system to "Test Mode" so you prevent setting off an alarm by accident. After the battery is replaced, change the system from "Test Mode" and resume your usual settings. If the control panel is unable to register the component or the battery icon remains on, you could require a full reset of your security system.

Resetting Your Tallahassee Security System After Adding Or Deleting Someone

Adding and deleting people can be done on your ADT Command hub and your ADT smartphone app. You should never require a resetting of your system after adding or removing users. But you should note, if you move into a new property with an existing ADT security system, you'll want to contact your residential security experts at (850) 347-8092 to start a new plan. The installer will go on site to replace outdated parts, install more devices (as required), and do a factory reset.

A User-Friendly Security System Is The Right Choice
