How To Reset Your Home Security System In Peoria

One perk of getting your home security set up professionally is that you seldom find a reason to worry about it. Even so, there could be times where you have to reset your alarms in Peoria. If you use a smart command hub, your system reset usually needs only a couple taps of the touchscreen after a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Read The Owner’s Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Peoria home security system, check your manual first. You don't want to damage your system due to pressing the wrong button. Also, the process might change if you switched from a number pad to a digital command hub. Keep in mind that if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't worry as you can always contact the experts.

Resetting Your Peoria Security System After A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm happens due to an accidentally tripped sensor. You are able to use the central hub or bring up the ADT mobile app and touch the shield icon and submit your security code to turn off the alarms for these instances. You could receive notification from your security monitoring team, but just let them know you experienced a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Peoria

If the power goes out because of lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you could start hearing a repeated, high-pitched beep from your alarm’s central interface. This signifies that the alarm is using the secondary power source. To reset your equipment and silence the beeping, you should take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

However, if power is out for an extended time, you could need a complete reset of your home’s security. Follow the directions in the manual -- typically by putting in your PIN number and tapping the on/off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You might keep hearing chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it may not cease until your battery is fully charged. Contact your home security specialists if you keep having problems with your ADT equipment at least 20 hours after power is restored.

Reset Your Home Security System After Switching Out A Battery

Occasionally you must replace a battery in one of the devices in your security installation. When this needs to be done, you will set your system to "Test Mode" so you don't trigger an accidental alarm. After the new battery is put in place, remove the alarm from test mode and revert back to your usual settings. If the command center fails to notice the device or the battery indicator remains on, you may have to perform a full reset of your security system.

Reset Your Peoria Security System When Adding Or Removing Someone

Adding and deleting users can be accomplished on your ADT Command hub and your ADT mobile app. You shouldn't have to perform a reset of your alarm after adding or removing users. But you should note, if you relocate to a new home with an existing ADT security system, you should contact your residential security experts at (309) 316-6084 to establish a new plan. The technician will come out and switch out outdated parts, place more components (if needed), and reset the system for you.
