How To Reset Your Home Security System In Flint

A nice benefit of having your home security system installed professionally is that you seldom find a reason to worry about it. Even so, there will likely be times when you need to reset your alarms in Flint. If you use a smart command interface, your system reset typically requires just a few minor tap of a button following occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Consult Your Instruction Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you begin to reset your Flint home security system, consult your owner’s manual prior to proceeding. You’ll never want to damage your system as a result of touching something incorrectly. In addition, the process could be different if you moved from a numbered keypad to a digital command hub. And if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't hesitate to call your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Flint Home Security System Due To A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm takes place because of an accidentally tripped sensor. You are able to engage the ADT Command touchscreen or open the ADT mobile app and hit the shield image and submit your security code to deactivate the alarms when this occurs. You might get a call from your monitoring professionals, but simply inform them that you experienced a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Flint

When you lose power due to lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you could begin hearing a repeated, high-pitched beep from your control panel. That indicates that your home’s defense is being powered by the backup battery. To reset your unit and halt the constant chirping, you should disarm/rearm the system.

But please note, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you may need a full reset of your system. Pay careful attention to the directives in the manual -- usually by submitting your PIN number and hitting the on/off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You may still hear chirps from the backup power, as it might not cease until the battery charges entirely. Contact your home security agent if you continue to have difficulties with your ADT system at least 20 hours after the power is resumed.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

Occasionally you need to change a battery powering one of the devices in your security installation. In order to accomplish this, you want to change your system to "Test Mode" so you avoid triggering a false alarm. After the battery is replaced, change the system from test mode and resume your usual settings. If the system fails to notice the piece of equipment or the battery icon remains on, you could require a total reset of the system.

Resetting Your Flint Security System Following The Addition Or Deletion Of Someone

Adding and deleting users can be accomplished on your ADT Command hub and the ADT Control mobile app. You should never need a reset of your alarm when deleting or adding users. However, if you relocate to a new property with an existing ADT security system, you need to reach out to your residential security experts at (810) 207-5457 to set up a new service. The technician will go on site to switch out equipment, install additional components (if necessary), and perform a full reset.
