How To Reset Your Home Security System In Amarillo

A nice benefit of getting your home security system installed professionally is that you hardly ever have to make major adjustments to it. However, there could be a couple situations where you must reset your alarms in Amarillo. If you’re utilizing a smart command panel, resetting typically 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 start resetting your Amarillo home security system, read your manual first. You don't want to undermine your property’s defense due to pressing a button in error. Also, your system might change if you upgraded from a number pad to a fully digital system. Keep in mind that if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't hesitate to call the professionals.

Resetting Your Amarillo Home Security System Due To A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm takes place as a result of an accidentally tripped sensor. You can engage the ADT Command touchscreen or bring up the ADT mobile app and hit the shield icon and submit your credentials to turn off the system when this occurs. You may get a call from your monitoring professionals, but simply inform them that you experienced a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Amarillo

If power is lost because of lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you might begin hearing a repeated, high-pitched beep from your control panel. That indicates that your home’s defense is being powered by the secondary power source. To reset your equipment and silence the beeping, you need to take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

But please note, if your power outage lasts for a longer period of time, you might need a complete reset of your system. Heed the instructions in the manual -- typically by submitting your unique passcode and hitting the off button two times -- and you should be back in business. You may keep hearing chirps from the backup power, as it’s possible it won’t end until your battery reaches a full charge. Call your home security specialists if you are still having issues with your ADT controls a day after power is restored.

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

When this needs to be done, you should change your home’s defense to Test Mode so you don't trigger an alarm by accident. Once the you replace the old battery, remove the alarm panel from test mode and restore normal operations. If the command center is unable to notice the device or the battery indicator remains on, you may have to perform a full reset of your security system.
