How To Reset Your Security System In Harrisburg

A nice benefit of getting your home security installed by professionals is that you hardly ever need to concern yourself with it. With that being said, there could be a couple situations where you must reset your alarms in Harrisburg. When using the ADT Command hub, a reset normally requires just a couple tap of a button following common events like false alarms and battery changes.

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

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you begin to reset your Harrisburg home security system, read your instruction manual first. You don't want to damage your system due to pressing a button in error. In addition, the process might be different if you moved from a number pad to a digital command hub. And if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't hesitate to reach out to the professionals.

Resetting Your Harrisburg Security System After A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm occurs because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can utilize the central hub or access your ADT smartphone app and touch the shield icon and type in your credentials to turn off the alarms when this occurs. You might receive notification from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but just let them know you had a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Harrisburg

If power is lost from a storm or other event, you may start to hear a repeated, high-pitched beep from your control panel. This lets you know that your security is using the secondary power source. To reset the alarm and silence the steady beeps, you should disarm/rearm the system.

Keep in mind, if you lose power for an extended time, you may need a full system reset. Heed the directives in the instruction manual -- typically by putting in your unique passcode and tapping the on/off button twice -- and you should be back in business. You might continue to notice the auxiliary power beeping, as it might not end until the battery charges entirely. Reach out to your home security agent if you are still having difficulties with your ADT equipment a day after power is restored.

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

Occasionally you must change a battery in one of your home security components. In order to accomplish this, you should set your alarm system to "Test Mode" so you avoid triggering an alarm by accident. After the new battery is put in place, change the system from Test Mode and resume your usual settings. If the control panel is unable to recognize the component or the battery icon remains on, you may require a full reset of your security system.
