How To Reset Your Security System In Sandy Springs

An important advantage of having your home security system installed professionally is that you rarely need to worry about it. With that being said, there may be a couple situations where you have to reset your alarms in Sandy Springs. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command panel, a reset normally takes a few minor taps of the touchscreen following a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Read The Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you try to reset your Sandy Springs home security system, read your manual ahead of time. You don't want to undermine your home’s protection because you hit a button in error. Also, the process could change if you switched from a numbered keypad to a digital command hub. Keep in mind that if you can't reset your system, don't hesitate to contact the professionals.

Resetting Your Sandy Springs Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm takes place due to the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can utilize the central hub or open the ADT mobile app and touch the shield icon and enter your security code to switch off the alarms when this occurs. You may get a call from your monitoring professionals, but simply inform them that it was a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Sandy Springs

When you lose power from a storm or other event, you might start hearing a steady beep from your alarm’s central interface. That indicates that your home’s defense is using the secondary power source. To reset your equipment and stop the steady beeps, you should disarm/rearm the system.

However, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you may need a full reset of your system. Heed the directives in the instruction manual -- usually by entering your PIN number and hitting the off button twice -- and you should be back in business. You might keep hearing the auxiliary power beeping, as it’s possible it won’t stop until your battery is fully charged. Contact your home security agent if you are still having difficulties with your ADT system a day after the power is resumed.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

There will be infrequent times when you need to replace a battery in one of your security devices. To do this, you want to switch your home’s defense to Test Mode so you don't trigger an alarm by accident. When the new battery is put in place, move the alarm panel from test mode and restore normal operations. If the control panel is unable to recognize the device or the battery icon is still on, you may have to perform a total reset of the system.

Reset Your Sandy Springs Security System After Adding Or Deleting Someone

Removing or adding personal codes can be accomplished on your ADT Command interface and your ADT mobile app. You should never need a system reset following the addition or deletion of a user or code. With that being said, if you relocate to a new home with an existing ADT security system, you'll want to call your security specialists at (770) 628-5897 to set up a new plan. The technician will go on site to upgrade equipment, install additional components (as required), and reset the system for you.
