How To Reset Your Home Security System In St. George

An important advantage of having your home security system set up professionally is that you hardly ever have to worry about it. With that being said, there may be times when you have to reset your alarms in St. George. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command interface, resetting normally requires just a few minor tap of a button following a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Read The Instruction Manual Before Attempting An Alarm Reset

One note of caution before you begin to reset your St. George home security system, read your owner’s manual first. You don't want to undermine your home’s protection because you hit a button in error. Also, the process could change if you upgraded from a numerical keypad to a digital command hub. If there’s ever a time when you’re struggling to reset your system, don't worry as you can always contact the experts.

Resetting Your St. George Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Typically, a false alarm takes place as a result of an accidentally tripped sensor. You may use the central hub or access your ADT security app and hit the shield option and type in your security code to deactivate the alarms when this occurs. You could be contacted by your security monitoring team, but simply inform them that it was a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm Following A Power Outage In St. George

If power is lost because of high winds or other factors, you may begin hearing a steady beep from your control panel. This signifies that your security is running off the battery backup. To reset your equipment and halt the steady beeps, you need to disarm/rearm the system.

However, if your power outage lasts for a longer period of time, you could need a total reset of your home’s security. Follow the directions in your user’s handbook -- typically by entering your PIN number and tapping the off button twice -- and you should be running fine. You may still hear chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it may not end until your battery reaches a full charge. Reach out to your home security agent if you are still having problems with your ADT equipment a day after power is restored.
