How To Reset Your Security System In Lakeland

An important advantage of getting your security system installed professionally is that you seldom have to concern yourself with it. With that being said, there could be times where you must reset your alarms in Lakeland. When using the ADT Command panel, resetting usually takes a couple button tap following occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Check Your Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you start resetting your Lakeland home security system, consult your manual first. You wouldn’t want to damage your system as a result of touching a button in error. Also, your system could have changed if you switched from a numerical keypad to a fully digital system. And if you can't reset your system, don't be reluctant to call the professionals.

Resetting Your Lakeland Security System Due To A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm occurs because of an accidentally tripped sensor. You may utilize the ADT Command touchscreen or open the ADT mobile app and hit the shield image and enter your security code to switch off the system when this occurs. You could receive notification from your security monitoring team, but just tell them you experienced a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Lakeland

If the power goes out from high winds or other factors, you could start to hear a beeping sound from your alarm’s central interface. This signifies that your home’s defense is running off the battery backup. To reset your equipment and stop the beeping, you need to deactivate and reactivate your system.

Keep in mind, if power is out for a longer period of time, you could need a full reset of your system. Follow the instructions in the manual -- normally by putting in your unique passcode and hitting the on/off button twice -- and you should be back to normal. You may still hear the auxiliary power beeping, as it’s possible it won’t end until the battery charges entirely. Contact your security technician if you are still having problems with your ADT equipment at least 20 hours after your power is back on.

Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

There will be infrequent times when you need to replace a battery powering 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 accidental alarm. After the you replace the old battery, remove the alarm out of test mode and resume normal operations. If the control panel is unable to notice the component or the battery light remains on, you could need a total reset of the system.
