How To Reset Your Home Security System In Napa

One perk of getting your home security system set up by professionals is that you hardly ever need to worry about it. Even so, there could be a couple situations when you must reset your alarms in Napa. If you use the ADT Command panel, resetting typically requires just a couple taps of the touchscreen following common events like false alarms and battery changes.

Check Your Instruction Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

One note of caution before you start resetting your Napa home security system, read your owner’s manual first. You don't want to compromise your property’s defense because you hit something incorrectly. Also, control panels may have changed if you upgraded from a number pad to a fully digital system. And if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't hesitate to call your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Napa Home Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Usually, a false alarm happens because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You are able to engage the control panel or bring up the ADT mobile app and touch the shield icon and submit your security code to switch off the alarms in these situations. You could get a call from your 24-hour monitoring specialists, but simply inform them that it was a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In Napa

When you lose power because of high winds or other factors, you may start to hear a steady beep from your alarm’s central interface. This signifies that your home’s defense is being powered by the battery backup. To reset the alarm and halt the steady beeps, you need to take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

Keep in mind, if power is out for a longer period of time, you might need a total reset of your home’s security. Follow the directives in your user’s handbook -- normally by putting in your PIN number and tapping the off button two times -- and you should be back to normal. You may still hear the auxiliary power beeping, as it’s possible it won’t cease until the battery charges entirely. Reach out to your security technician if you are still having problems with your ADT controls at least 20 hours after power is restored.

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

There will be infrequent times when you must switch out a battery within one of your home security components. To do this, you should change your system to Test Mode so you don't trigger an alarm by accident. When the battery is replaced, remove the alarm panel from "Test Mode" and revert back to your usual settings. If the command center fails to notice the component or the battery icon is still on, you might have to perform a full reset of your security system.

Reset Your Napa Security System After Adding Or Deleting A User

The addition and deletion of personal codes can be accomplished on the ADT Command panel and the ADT Control mobile app. You won’t require a reset of your alarm when deleting or adding users. But you should note, if you relocate to a new property that already has an ADT system, you need to reach out to your residential security experts at (707) 244-9280 to establish a new service. The technician will visit your property to replace outdated parts, place additional components (if needed), and reset the system for you.
