How To Reset Your Security System In Nashville

A nice benefit of getting your security system set up by trained experts is that you seldom need to concern yourself with it. With that being said, there could be a few instances where you need to reset your alarms in Nashville. If you’re utilizing the ADT Command interface, your system reset normally needs only a couple button tap when you’ve experienced a false alarm, power outage, or battery change.

Consult Your Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

A word to the wise before you begin to reset your Nashville home security system, check your manual first. You’ll never want to undermine your property’s defense as a result of touching a button in error. Also, the process may change if you switched from a numbered keypad to a fully digital system. If there’s ever a time when you can't reset your system, don't be reluctant to reach out to your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Nashville Home Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm occurs because of the accidental tripping of a sensor. You can engage the central hub or access your ADT security app and hit the shield icon and enter your credentials to switch off the system when this occurs. You might be contacted by your security monitoring team, but just let them know it was a false alarm.

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

If power is lost from lighting, strong winds, or other reasons, you might start hearing a beeping sound from your central command hub. That indicates that the alarm is running off the secondary power source. To reset your unit and halt the beeping, you must disarm/rearm the system.

Keep in mind, if your power outage lasts for prolonged time frame, you could need a total reset of your home’s security. Heed the instructions in the instruction manual -- normally by putting in your unique passcode and pressing the designated button twice -- and you should be running fine. You might still hear chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it might not end until the battery charges entirely. Contact your security technician if you continue to have problems with your ADT controls 20 hours after the power is resumed.

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

There will be infrequent times when you will have to change a battery powering one of your security devices. To do this, you will switch your home’s defense to "Test Mode" so you avoid triggering an alarm by accident. After the new battery is put in place, move the alarm panel from Test Mode and resume your usual settings. If the control panel fails to register the piece of equipment or the battery light remains on, you might require a whole system reset.

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

The addition and deletion of people can be accomplished on your ADT Command interface and your ADT smartphone app. You shouldn't require a system reset after adding or removing codes. However, if you move into a new property already equipped with an ADT alarm system, you should call your security specialists at (615) 257-7896 to establish a new service. The installation tech will come out and upgrade components, install other components (as required), and do a factory reset.
