How To Reset Your Security System In Chattanooga

An important advantage of having your home security installed by professionals is that you hardly ever need to concern yourself with it. However, there will likely be times when you must reset your alarms in Chattanooga. When using the ADT Command hub, resetting usually needs only a couple tap of a button when you’ve experienced a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Consult Your Instruction Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you try to reset your Chattanooga home security system, read your instruction manual prior to proceeding. You don't want to damage your property’s defense because you hit something incorrectly. Additionally, control panels may change if you switched from a number pad to a modernized touchscreen interface. Keep in mind that if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't worry as you can always contact your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Chattanooga Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm occurs as a result of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can use the ADT Command touchscreen or open the ADT mobile app and touch the shield image and submit your security code to turn off the system when this occurs. You could receive notification from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but just let them know you experienced a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Chattanooga

When you lose power from lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you could start to hear a beeping sound from your alarm’s central interface. That indicates that your home’s defense is using the secondary power source. To reset your equipment and silence the beeping, you must disarm/rearm the system.

However, if you lose power for a longer period of time, you might need a total system reset. Heed the instructions in your user’s handbook -- normally by entering your unique passcode and hitting the on/off button twice -- and you should be back to normal. You could keep hearing chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it’s possible it won’t stop until your battery reaches a full charge. Reach out to your security technician if you are still having issues with your ADT equipment a day after the power is resumed.

Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

Occasionally you will have to change a battery within one of your home security components. When this needs to be done, you want to set your home’s defense to "Test Mode" so you prevent setting off an alarm by accident. After the new battery is put in place, move the system from Test Mode and resume normal operations. If the control panel fails to register the device or the battery icon is still on, you might need a full reset of your security system.

Reset Your Chattanooga Security System Following The Addition Or Deletion Of Someone

Adding and deleting users can be done on your ADT Command hub and your ADT mobile app. You won’t need a resetting of your system when deleting or adding users. With that being said, if you find yourself moving to a new house already equipped with an ADT security system, you should call your security specialists at (423) 241-8594 to establish a new contract. The technician will come out and replace components, set up other devices (if necessary), and do a factory reset.
