How To Reset Your Oklahoma City Home System

A nice benefit of getting your home security installed by trained experts is that you seldom need to worry about it. Even so, there will likely be a few instances where you have to reset your alarms in Oklahoma City. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command hub, your system reset usually needs only a couple tap of a button following occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Consult Your Instruction Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Oklahoma City home security system, check your manual ahead of time. You don't want to undermine your system because you hit a button in error. In addition, your system might be different if you switched from a numerical keypad to a fully digital system. If there’s ever a time when you can't reset your system, don't be reluctant to call the professionals.

Resetting Your Oklahoma City Home Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm occurs due to a sensor that was tripped by accident. You are able to utilize the central hub or open the ADT mobile app and tap the shield icon and type in your security code to turn off the system in these situations. You may receive notification from your monitoring professionals, but just let them know it was a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Oklahoma City

If the power goes out because of lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you might start to hear a steady beep from your control panel. This signifies that the alarm is being powered by the secondary power source. To reset your unit and stop the beeping, you should take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

Keep in mind, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you might need a total system reset. Pay careful attention to the directions in the manual -- usually by submitting your unique passcode and pressing the off button two times -- and you should be back in business. You could still hear chirps from the backup power, as it may not end until your battery is fully charged. Contact your security technician if you are still having issues with your ADT system 20 hours after the power is resumed.

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

After the you replace the old battery, remove the system from "Test Mode" and restore normal operations. If the system doesn't register the component or the battery light remains on, you might need a full reset of your security system.
