How To Reset Your Home Security System In Long Beach

One perk of getting your home security system installed by trained experts is that you seldom find a reason to worry about it. However, there may be times when you have to reset your alarms in Long Beach. If you use the ADT Command hub, a reset typically needs only one or two taps of the touchscreen when you’ve experienced common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Consult Your Instruction Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you start resetting your Long Beach home security system, check your owner’s manual prior to proceeding. You’ll never want to damage your home’s protection as a result of touching something incorrectly. Additionally, the process could change if you moved from a number pad to a fully digital system. And if you can't reset your system, don't worry as you can always reach out to your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Long Beach Home Security System After A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm takes place due to the accidental tripping of a sensor. You are able to utilize the central hub or bring up the ADT mobile app and touch the shield icon and enter your credentials to turn off the system when this occurs. You could be contacted by your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that you had a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Long Beach

When you lose power because of a storm or other event, you could start to hear a repeated, high-pitched beep from your alarm’s central interface. That indicates that your home’s defense is being powered by the backup battery. To reset your unit and silence the steady beeps, you need to take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

However, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you could need a complete system reset. Follow the instructions in the instruction manual -- usually by entering your PIN number and hitting the off button twice -- and you should be back to normal. You could keep hearing the auxiliary power beeping, as it’s possible it won’t cease until your battery is fully charged. Contact your home security agent if you keep having problems with your ADT equipment 20 hours after your power is back on.

Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

Occasionally you will have to switch out a battery powering one of your security devices. To do this, you will change your alarm system to test mode so you prevent setting off an alarm by accident. Once the new battery is put in place, move the system from "Test Mode" and resume your usual settings. If the system doesn't register the device or the battery indicator stays on, you might have to perform a full reset of your security system.

Resetting Your Long Beach Security System After Adding Or Deleting Someone

Adding and deleting personal codes can be accomplished on your ADT Command hub and your ADT mobile app. You shouldn't have to perform a system reset when deleting or adding codes. With that being said, if you find yourself moving to a new home that already has an ADT system, you should contact your security specialists at (562) 203-6338 to set up a new plan. The technician will come out and upgrade outdated parts, install additional alarms or cameras (as required), and reset the system for you.
