How To Reset Your Santa Clarita System

An important advantage of having your home security set up by trained experts is that you hardly ever need to make major adjustments to it. Even so, there will likely be times when you must reset your alarms in Santa Clarita. If you use the ADT Command panel, a reset typically needs only a couple button tap after common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Consult Your Owner’s Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

One note of caution before you begin to reset your Santa Clarita home security system, consult your owner’s manual prior to proceeding. You don't want to undermine your home’s protection as a result of touching a button in error. In addition, your system might change if you moved from a number pad to a modernized touchscreen interface. And if you can't reset your system, don't hesitate to call the professionals.

Resetting Your Santa Clarita Home Security System After A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm happens as a result of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You may utilize the ADT Command touchscreen or access the ADT mobile app and tap the shield image and type in your credentials to switch off the alarms in these situations. You may receive notification from your monitoring professionals, but just let them know you had a false alarm.

How To Reset Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Santa Clarita

When you lose power because of high winds or other factors, you might start to hear a repeated, high-pitched beep from your alarm’s central interface. This signifies that your security is being powered by the backup battery. To reset your unit and silence the beeping, you must deactivate and reactivate your system.

Keep in mind, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you could need a total system reset. Heed the directions in your user’s handbook -- typically by putting in your code and tapping the designated button two times -- and you should be back to normal. You might continue to notice chirps from the backup power, as it might not stop until your battery is fully charged. Contact your home security agent if you continue to have difficulties with your ADT system a day after power is restored.

How To Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

There will be infrequent times when you will have to switch out a battery in one of your security devices. To do this, you should change your home’s defense to "Test Mode" so you avoid triggering a false alarm. When the battery is replaced, change the alarm panel out of Test Mode and resume normal operations. If the command center doesn't recognize the piece of equipment or the battery indicator stays on, you could need a full reset of your security system.

Tips to Reset Your Santa Clarita Security System When Adding Or Removing Someone

Adding and deleting users can be completed on your ADT Command interface and your ADT smartphone app. You shouldn't have to perform a system reset after adding or removing codes. With that being said, if you find yourself moving to a new property already equipped with an ADT alarm system, you should contact your home security professional at (661) 231-0767 to start a new contract. The installer will come out and upgrade outdated parts, set up more devices (as required), and perform a full reset.
