How To Reset Your Alpharetta System

An important advantage of getting your home security installed by professionals is that you seldom need to make major adjustments to it. With that being said, there will likely be a few instances when you have to reset your alarms in Alpharetta. When using the ADT Command hub, resetting typically requires just one or two taps of the touchscreen when you’ve experienced occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Read The Instruction Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

A word to the wise before you start resetting your Alpharetta home security system, read your instruction manual first. You’ll never want to undermine your system due to pressing the wrong button. In addition, control panels may have changed if you switched from a numbered keypad to a fully digital system. If there’s ever a time when you’re struggling to reset your system, don't hesitate to reach out to the experts.

Resetting Your Alpharetta Security System Due To A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm happens because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You are able to utilize the ADT Command touchscreen or bring up the ADT mobile app and hit the shield icon and type in your security code to switch off the system when this occurs. You could receive notification from your monitoring professionals, but just let them know it was a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Alpharetta

If power is lost due to high winds or other factors, you may start hearing a repeated, high-pitched beep from your alarm’s central interface. That indicates that your security is running off the backup battery. To reset the alarm and silence the constant chirping, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

Keep in mind, if you lose power for prolonged time frame, you could need a complete reset of your home’s security. Follow the directions in the instruction manual -- normally by entering your code and tapping the on/off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You may keep hearing the auxiliary power beeping, as it might not stop until your battery reaches a full charge. Reach out to your security technician if you continue to have difficulties with your ADT system a day after power is restored.

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

On occasion you need to replace a battery powering one of the devices in your security installation. In order to accomplish this, you will switch your alarm system to "Test Mode" so you prevent setting off an accidental alarm. When the battery is replaced, move the alarm panel out of Test Mode and revert back to your usual settings. If the system is unable to register the component or the battery light stays on, you could need a total reset of the system.

Resetting Your Alpharetta Security System When Adding Or Removing A User

Adding and deleting personal codes can be done on your ADT Command interface and your ADT mobile app. You won’t have to perform a system reset after adding or removing users. With that being said, if you move into a new house already equipped with an ADT system, you should contact your security specialists at (678) 251-9195 to start a new plan. The technician will go on site to replace equipment, install more alarms or cameras (if needed), and do a factory reset.
