How To Reset Your Greensboro Home System

One perk of getting your home security system hooked up professionally is that you seldom find a reason to make major adjustments to it. However, there may be a few instances where you need to reset your alarms in Greensboro. When using a smart command hub, resetting usually needs only a few minor taps of the touchscreen after a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Read The Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

A word to the wise before you begin to reset your Greensboro home security system, consult your instruction manual prior to proceeding. You wouldn’t want to compromise your system as a result of touching something incorrectly. In addition, the process could have changed if you upgraded from a numerical keypad to a modernized touchscreen interface. Keep in mind that if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't worry as you can always contact your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Greensboro Security System After A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm occurs because of a sensor that was tripped by accident. You can utilize the central hub or access the ADT mobile app and tap the shield icon and enter your security code to turn off the alarms when this occurs. You may get a call from your security monitoring team, but just let them know it was a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Greensboro

If the power goes out due to high winds or other factors, you could start hearing a repeated, high-pitched beep from your central command hub. That indicates that your security is being powered by the backup battery. To reset the alarm and stop the constant chirping, you should deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if you lose power for an extended time, you could need a complete reset of your home’s security. Pay careful attention to the instructions in the manual -- normally by entering your PIN number and hitting the off button twice -- and you should be back to normal. You might still hear chirps from the backup power, as it’s possible it won’t end until your battery reaches a full charge. Contact your home security specialists if you keep having difficulties with your ADT controls 20 hours after the power is resumed.

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

Once the you replace the old battery, remove the alarm out of test mode and resume your usual settings. If the control panel is unable to register the device or the battery icon remains on, you could require a whole system reset.
