How To Reset Your Bloomington System

A nice benefit of getting your home security hooked up by professionals is that you seldom find a reason to make major adjustments to it. However, there may be times where you must reset your alarms in Bloomington. If you use the ADT Command panel, a reset normally needs only a couple button tap when you’ve experienced occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Check Your Instruction Manual Before Resetting Your Alarm

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you start resetting your Bloomington home security system, check your manual first. You’ll never want to undermine your property’s defense due to pressing the wrong button. Also, control panels may be different if you upgraded from a number pad to a fully digital system. Keep in mind that if you’re struggling to reset your system, don't worry as you can always contact the professionals.

Resetting Your Bloomington Security System Due To A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm happens because of an accidentally tripped sensor. You may engage the ADT Command touchscreen or bring up your ADT security app and hit the shield icon and type in your credentials to deactivate the system for these instances. You may receive notification from your monitoring professionals, but just let them know you had a false alarm.

Tips To Reset Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Bloomington

If power is lost due to high winds or other factors, you might start hearing a beeping sound from your alarm’s central interface. This signifies that your home’s defense is running off the backup battery. To reset the alarm and halt the constant chirping, you must take steps to disarm and rearm your security.

But please note, if power is out for prolonged time frame, you could need a full reset of your system. Follow the directives in your user’s handbook -- normally by putting in your code and tapping the on/off button two times -- and you should be running fine. You might continue to notice chirps from the backup power, as it’s possible it won’t end until your battery is fully charged. Reach out to your home security specialists if you are still having issues with your ADT controls a day after your power is back on.

Reset Your Home Security System After Replacing A Battery

Occasionally you will have to switch out a battery within one of the devices in your security installation. To do this, you want to set your alarm system to test mode so you don't trigger an accidental alarm. After the new battery is put in place, move the system out of test mode and resume your usual settings. If the system fails to recognize the component or the battery light stays on, you may need a total reset of the system.

Tips to Reset Your Bloomington Security System After Adding Or Deleting A User

The addition and deletion of users can be done on your ADT Command hub and your ADT smartphone app. You shouldn't have to perform a reset of your alarm after adding or removing a user or code. With that being said, if you relocate to a new property with an existing ADT alarm system, you should contact your home security professional at (812) 200-5695 to establish a new plan. The installer will go on site to upgrade components, set up other alarms or cameras (as required), and do a factory reset.
