How To Reset Your Trenton System

A nice benefit of getting your home security system set up professionally is that you hardly ever need to concern yourself with it. Even so, there will likely be a couple situations when you have to reset your alarms in Trenton. If you use the ADT Command interface, your system reset normally needs only one or two taps of the touchscreen following 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 start resetting your Trenton home security system, consult your manual first. You wouldn’t want to damage your property’s defense because you hit something incorrectly. Additionally, the process may change 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 contact the professionals.

Resetting Your Trenton Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm happens due to a sensor that was tripped by accident. You may engage the control panel or bring up the ADT mobile app and tap the shield image and submit your unique passcode to turn off the system in these situations. You might be contacted by your monitoring professionals, but just let them know you experienced a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm When Experiencing A Power Outage In Trenton

When you lose power from a storm or other event, you could start to hear a beeping sound from your control panel. This lets you know that your home’s defense is running off the secondary power source. To reset your equipment and silence the beeping, you need to deactivate and reactivate your system.

However, if you lose power for prolonged time frame, you could need a complete reset of your home’s security. Pay careful attention to the directions in the instruction manual -- normally by putting in your PIN number and pressing the on/off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You may continue to notice the auxiliary power beeping, as it might not cease until the battery charges entirely. Call your security technician if you keep having problems with your ADT controls at least 20 hours after the power is resumed.
