How To Reset Your Louisville System

A nice benefit of getting your home security system set up by trained experts is that you seldom have to worry about it. Even so, there will likely be a few instances when you need to reset your alarms in Louisville. When using the ADT Command interface, resetting typically needs only one or two button tap when you’ve experienced occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Check Your Instruction Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you start resetting your Louisville home security system, read your owner’s manual first. You wouldn’t want to undermine your system as a result of touching something incorrectly. In addition, your system may have changed if you upgraded from a numerical keypad to a fully digital system. And if you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't be reluctant to call the professionals.

Resetting Your Louisville Security System After A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm occurs due to an accidentally tripped sensor. You are able to utilize the ADT Command touchscreen or bring up the ADT mobile app and tap the shield option and submit your unique passcode to turn off the alarms for these instances. You may receive notification from your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that you had a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Louisville

If power is lost because of lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you might begin hearing a beeping sound from your central command hub. This lets you know that your home’s defense is running off the secondary power source. To reset the alarm and halt the beeping, you need to disarm/rearm the system.

Keep in mind, if your power outage lasts for an extended time, you could need a complete reset of your home’s security. Pay careful attention to the instructions in the instruction manual -- normally by submitting your unique passcode and pressing the off button twice -- and you should be back in business. You may keep hearing chirps from the backup power, as it may not cease until your battery reaches a full charge. Contact your home security specialists if you keep having difficulties with your ADT system at least 20 hours after your power is back on.

Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

Occasionally you need to change a battery in one of the devices in your security installation. When this needs to be done, you will set your alarm system to test mode so you prevent setting off a false alarm. When the new battery is put in place, change the alarm panel out of Test Mode and restore normal operations. If the system is unable to notice the piece of equipment or the battery indicator is still on, you could have to perform a total reset of the system.

Resetting Your Louisville Security System Following The Addition Or Deletion Of A Code

Adding and deleting people can be completed on your ADT Command hub and your ADT smartphone app. You won’t have to perform a system reset when deleting or adding a user or code. But you should note, if you find yourself moving to a new property already equipped with an ADT security system, you should contact your home security professional at (502) 251-3133 to set up a new contract. The technician will visit your property to upgrade outdated parts, install additional components (as required), and reset the system for you.
